Leave a comment at the end of this post telling me your favorite hiking and camping snack & be entered to win a three-flavor variety pack of Munk Pack goodness!

Whether I’m headed out on a road trip or going on an afternoon hike, I’m always on the lookout for delicious and nutritious snacks that are easy and convenient to eat on the go.

Munk Pack, a new mix of hearty oats, Omega-3 flax seeds, and tasty fruits has pretty much nailed it. Served in a 4.2 ounce resealable squeeze pouch, Munk Pack is an oatmeal based snack that can easily be eaten with one hand and requires no refrigeration.

When I first heard of Munk Pack, I wasn’t sure how much I was going to dig it. The whole concept of oatmeal in a squeeze pouch seemed a little strange, and I was especially curious about the texture. A recent hiking excursion out to Blue Diamond just outside of Las Vegas seemed like the perfect opportunity to give Munk Pack the taste test.

The Taste

Munk Pack comes in three different flavors: Raspberry Coconut, Blueberry Acai Flax, and Apple Cinnamon. I’m kind of a coconut freak, so about an hour into my hike I popped the cap off the Raspberry Coconut and slurped away. Since there are no added artificial sugars, it wasn’t too sweet and the fresh, tangy flavor of the raspberry was near addictive. The coconut provided a slightly pulpy offset to the oatmeal texture which wasn’t at all mushy like I imagined.

While the Raspberry Coconut ended up being my favorite, the other two Munk Pack flavors were also pretty scrumptious. The Blueberry Acai Flax has 550mg of Omega-3s and is made with ripe blueberries straight out of the Pacific Northwest. Out of all three flavors, the Apple Cinnamon was most reminiscent of oatmeal but with a fresher, more vibrant taste.

Nutritional Details

Munk Pack is a healthy alternative to other on-the-go snacks. Unlike a lot of bars, for example, Munk Pack has a short list of non-GMO ingredients, all of which are recognizable without needing a chemistry degree. All natural, low in sugars and fat, and a couple grams of fiber and protein make Munk Pack a great way to recharge. Munk Pack is also vegan and gluten-free, so even those who have dietary restrictions can get their Munk fix.

Despite being quite filling, the total calories per Munk Pack is only 80-100 calories per pouch. This makes it a guilt-free snack or breakfast when you are on the road, at work, or before that mountain bike ride. I also took Munk Pack with me on a recent backpacking trip through Paria Canyon in Southern Utah. While totally satisfying, I decided to eat them on day 1 since Munk Pack weighs a bit more and provides less calories than food I typically take on extended backpacking trips.

The Bearfoot Verdict

I really enjoyed everything about Munk Pack. They are convenient, tasty, filling, and nutritious – a combo that’s hard to beat. My only beef is the fact that the cap is the only part of the package that is recyclable, but from the sounds of it, this is something Munk Pack is working on. Munk Pack is also a 1% for the Planet company that donates 1% of its sales to sustainability-focused non-profits.  So hopefully we see some changes in the packaging in the near future. Other than that, I whole heartedly recommend Munk Pack.

Where to buy Munk Pack

All three Munk Pack flavors are available on Amazon or you can use their store locator to see where you can purchase Munk Pack near your home. A 6-pack goes for $15.

  1. I willing to try just about any trail food. Bring it on.

    If I am out on a long day hike, my lunch is a sandwich. Usually peanut butter with honey or jelly. I freeze the sandwich the night before. I also freeze water (about half of it) in my bottles; it keeps the water cold all day. If I see this product at REI, I might give it a try.

      I don’t think they are in REI just yet. But fingers crossed!

    I am not sure if I can imagine the texture, but the way you describe the taste sounds awesome. I am a sucker for a good PB&J with banana on the trails. 🙂

    I’ve been curious about Munk Pack for awhile now (and have the same skepticism for the textures as you did). Thanks for the review, would love to add another trail snack to my repertoire.

      If you end up trying it, let me know what you think!

    I love Larabars, jerky, and almonds. Will have to try these out!

    What an interesting snack. The fewer ingredients the better! Will have to give these a try.

    KIND bars and dehydrated apples!
    The coconut one does sound promising…

    Interesting! My fave is Dove dark chocolate covered blueberries and jerky…yum!

    GORP is probably my favorite. It’s easy and filling.

    That raspberry coconut sounds delicious, combining two of my favorite foods.

    We always take Justin’s hazelnut butter in the single serve packs. But sometimes I look like a fool halfway through a hike as I’m walking along trying to get out every last little bit of it out of the package. They are just too tasty!
