Campers Pantry Freeze Dried Oats with Apple and Cinnamon Review

Over the past year Campers Pantry has fleshed out its range and now offers breakfast options, mainly in the form of oats dishes. Oats are easy to prepare and pack a huge punch. I have never come away from an oat-based dish feeling like I want more – they just fill you up.

Most Campers Pantry meals are single serve but not in this case. While the weight of the dried meal is the same as a main meal, when you talk about oats that’s a lot of food and as such the Campers Pantry Oats with Apple and Cinnamon is a two serve dish and even as a big eater I would struggle to eat the full packet in a single serve.

I found the apple and cinnamon components of this meal to be a bit muted in taste and its not surprising that the serving suggestion recommends adding honey – and I agree. If you don’t want to worry about honey, then add some sugar.

The packet recommends adding 300ml of boiling water but I added 350ml as I found the lesser amount was a bit too solid for my taste. The packet doesn’t suggest a ‘cooking’ time but with the additional water the meal was ready to eat after 5 minutes.

Like all of Campers Pantry meals this breakfast comes in a bag that is well designed and the bottom opens out to provide a flat base if you want to leave the bowl at home. I like a bit of variety with my breakfast so I wouldn’t eat this, or any other breakfast option every day but I am definitely a fan.

We Like

  • A very filling breakfast option
  • Easy to prepare
  • Minimal preparation time.  Ready within less than 10 minutes
  • If you eat from the bag there is only your eating implement to clean up. In fact you may not even need to carry a bowl at all thereby limiting the weight you carry
  • Freeze dried. This takes much of the weight out of the meals which helps to limit the impact on your body
  • Two year warranty which means you can buy these when you see them discounted thereby reducing the price. You also know the meals will always be edible

We Don't Like

  • Its a bit bland for my taste and needs a touch of sweetness by adding honey or sugar

Best Uses

  • An easy to prepare hearty breakfast option
