Cheez-Its on 04/19/2012 15:35:35 MDT Print View

Do you guys like cheezits on the trail? I bring them a lot. They taste great and have 150 calories per ounce.

I like Cheez-its. I like all kinds of junk food. I ate donuts for breakfast every morning for 5 days once. It worked out better than I expected. :)

It occurred to me that things like chips, cookies and donuts are ideal for backpacking.

Honey Buns on 04/19/2012 17:55:02 MDT Print View

I can't remember the guys name, but over on WhiteBlaze there's a story of a guy who did the entire AT on 4 honey buns a day.

I wish I liked them they seem like good energy food.

Cheez-its are disgusting - white flour, artificial cheese flavoring,...

and if you leave a box with me I'll gobble it all down before I know what happened...

Brilliant! Mike Clelland! got me turned onto packing Fritos for lunch (in addition to my usual PB&J) but I never thought of Cheez-Its. I've had heartburn from eating a whole big bag of Fritos on one car trip but never had heartburn from eating a whole box of Cheez-Its!

OP - You just saved me the weight of at least a couple Zantac...Thanks!

Mmmmm, Cheez-Its! on 04/19/2012 21:01:48 MDT Print View

Thanks! I'll have to add those to my no-cook food spreadsheet right next to the really big Snickers, huge Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Hostess Mini Donuts, Salami & Cheese, raw almonds, cowboy coffee, Pringles, Fritos... No wonder that I like stay on the trail for 3 to 5 days at a time. When else can you eat this well?

smile and "say cheeze" on 04/20/2012 10:27:20 MDT Print View

annie's, kashi, and late july all make less junk-ladened versions of the original.
i DO like the bulk sesame stix you can buy at the helath food store (and some grocery stores) that actually come in a cajun spice variety. they don't crush and are far more nutritional. lt

"sesame stix easily rival cheez-its.

A huge +1. They're the best. There are several tasty varieties, and some of them have up to 159 calories, at least at Whole Foods.
