My girlfriend and I went backpacking in the Gila Wilderness this last week. It's an incredible area and we were planning on 4 days in the backcountry and about 40 miles. Unfortunately, we had bought Wise Company 7 day meal pack at Walmart ($86). We thought this was a score, with 32 servings, it came to $2.39 a meal. We of course didn't take every meal for the four days. We had the first serving after walking in 5 miles and setting up camp. We both went to bed with terrible stomach cramps, fortunately we had packed in a small supply of Tums. Breakfast the next morning caused us both stomach pain again. My girlfriend was curled for an hour on her sleeping pad. Tums again to the rescue, but after a long visit to the bushes by both of us. By this point we had tried three different meals (two the night before, one for breakfast) and all had made use very ill, and dig *several* deep cat holes. As these made up the bulk of our food, breakfast and dinner, we decided not to wander further into the wild and cut short our trip. We hiked back towards the trail head and found a nice grove of ponderosa near the West Gila River and set up camp a mile and a half from the trailhead and ate our lunches for food. We hiked out the third day in the morning. So I have to recommend avoiding these meals. They seem to have favorable reviews, but there's apparently an issue with quality control. Eat at your own risk.
