I always read the ingredients label of a can of "potted meat" to my students....filed under "if they grind it up really fine, what are they trying to hide?"

Duck liver pate (bought on holiday in France and very good) and some nice grainy crackers studded with sea salt. Spam and Ritz indeed! ;-)

I carry Millennium bars as I like their taste and texture best. They go down better with a drink. I pack cocoa and soup mixes in these preform bottles. Virtually indestructible they are heavier and more bulky than packets but they never leak. Plus, they’re reusable.

I also pack drink add-ins like Gatorade or Propel. I'm trying a new product called Nunn. They pack 12 tabs (each good for a 16oz bottle packed in resealable plastic tube.

I do carry individual single serving packets of peanut butter, honey and jam (Minimus is a good source). The jam is Bonne Mamam, a brand I discovered while living in France, oh la, la, la*.

But I need a good carbohydrate to use as an edible carrier for the honey/jam/pb to my mouth. Most crackers are too fragile and the flatbreads I’ve tried always seem stale, even right out of the package.

Any suggestions?

If I were ever going to be more than hour or two walk from a Wawa I’d bring along some Mountain house meals.

*The French really do say this. The more la’s the more they’re excited.

I'm missing something. What does peanut butter and honey have to do with a mouse?

Mouse jam, it's the latest thing. It contains protein, carbs and sugar. You can spread it on crackers, or squeeze the contents directly into your mouth.

Cats love it.

The main food component of my GHB is a 2400-calorie lifeboat food ration bar and a two-serving freeze-dried meal pouch (I like Mountain House Santa Fe Chicken).

I supplement that with some jerky, instant oatmeal, peanut butter packets, honey packets, hardtack crackers, chicken bouillon packets, roasted/unsalted almonds, Clif bars and gel shots, and multi-vitamins. I also include some packets of instant coffee and Propel energy drink mix. Perhaps not the most nutritionally-balanced diet, but it's better than eating bugs, pigeons or rats for 3-4 days.
