I'm a food snob and it's hard to give up quality, even when packing light. Tasty Bite is very good ready-to eat Indian food. It's a little heavier thought, because it's not dry. http://www.tastybite.com/Indian_Food_s/1.htm
I make my own trail mix with chocolate chips, dried cherries, walnuts, pecans, and cashews.
I also make my own oatmeal using quickoats, evaporated milk powder, spices, dried cherries, and pecans. Just add hot water. (and a sliced apple or pear if car camping).
Next week I'm sampling some smoked salmon packed in oil and vacuume sealed (no fridge required). It's a new offering at REI. We usually bring smoked salmon or salami when car camping, but they both require keeping cool can't tolerate desert base-camp temps.
Lara Bars are the best on the market, IMO, for a sweet treat without refined sugars.
Special treat: a can of divina dolmas http://www.gourmetofoldecity.com/stgrle.html
