Alpine Aire Snacks Final Update

Spicy Cheddar Bean dip on pita chip.

A backpacking trip into the Nantahala Wilderness in Western North Carolina allowed me to try out most of these snacks on the trail. I was surprised with a few of the snacks – both in how they tasted and how easy/difficult they were to prepare in the backcountry. Click here to see my final update on the snacks, dips, and smoothie.

Read on for my initial thoughts on the gosh! Dripo Cold Brew Coffee System.
