Shore Lunch Cheddar Potato Soup:
3) At first I will admit this is not the most appetizing looking soup in the world, but give it 15-20 minutes to simmer and I promise amazing things will happen over your camp fire. Also please remember to stir as often as possible as you don't want a bunch of burnt potato stuck to the bottom of your bush pot!
So from someone who simply cannot stand most potatoes soups out there comes a glowing recommendation. This one took me by great surprise and has convinced me to not judge a package by its cover. If you are on the trail this package is perfectly compact and will go a long way to keeping you warm on those cold nights that you're tucked deep into that MSS with 3' of snow piling up around you!
Bear Creek Potato Cheddar Soup:
As always Beer Creek soup mixes don't disappoint! While I didn't like it as much as the Gumbo (LINK) it was a hearty meal and tasted nearly as good as home cooking. Defiantly worth $3.33 as it is easily a filling meal for up to three adults. Don't hesitate to try this one out!
Conclusions:While the taste is essentially the same between these two soup mixes I would give a slight advantage to the Bear Creek Mix as it was a little thicker, had more potato flakes and seemed to be more filling. Price and packaging easily goes to Shore Lunch as two of their packets could fit in the same space as one Bear Creek package and they are also 1/3 of the price of the Bear Creek. So with that said I would more than likely stick with the Shore Lunch variety going forward due to its ability to pack, lower price point and minimal difference in taste. Also for those of you who only ever cook for one and don't use a bush pot for camp cooking I will be doing a post soon on how to split a few of these packages up into single serving meals in the near future.
