Fishpeople gourmet food pouches

Editor: Colorado Jake

Chef inspired. Wild caught.


As a backpack hunter. I’m always looking for new food to add to my backcountry menu. I usually stick with Mountain house which are great but can become boring after many years of consuming every flavor. So, I was very excited when Fishpeople started popping up.


I bought two mix cases with every flavor they make. The pouch is about the size of a large hand (5.5”w x 6.5” L x 1.15” deep), weight of 7-10oz, and pack very neatly. The pouch is made out of a BPA free material so there is no bad after taste if cooking in the package. They have a self life of 10 plus months and require no special care. Simply put the pouch in a container with boiling water (my jetboil worked awesome) and 3-4 minutes later you’re eating a gourmet all natural meal.

The meals are insanely good (you can read every ingredient). They cook up easy, pack quick, and add a moral boost on those long backcountry hunts. I like to add “cup of noodle” to the mix for added carbs. Each pouch packs 220-440 calories, 10-16 grams of protein, and a bunch of Omega 3. Give them a try and you’ll be hooked.

Thing to consider:
-They are not freeze dried or dehydrated
-Water is already in them, so do not carry extra water to cook
-Can add weight, but wow are they good!
