Wanaka New Zealand Lake Front

Ultimate guide to eating in Wanaka

As a solo traveler with an extremely favorable exchange rate, I took great advantage of being able to eat whatever the heck I wanted in the two and a half days I was in Wanaka. Two days of hard climbing and one full day of sitting on a bus made for a very, very, very hungry girl. I ate my way through this town so you don’t have to. You’re welcome. #thisiswhyimfat

Straw Propeller Gourmet Foods Cherry & Chia

Straw Propeller Cherry & Chia Review

Straw Propeller takes that age-old instant oatmeal and adds their own gourmet twist to make this breakfast staple more enjoyable and fun. My first try with the company was with the Apple Crisp, and boy, was that tasty.

The Cherry & Chia wasn’t quite what I was expecting from the company. Apple Crisp was incredibly sweet and dessert-like, and that was what I was hoping for. The Cherry & Chia was a lot more tart without the extra sweet overload. The chia seeds were a nice touch; I’m a huge fan of getting my fair share of omega-3 fatty acids. However, coming off of the sweet, sweet, gooey, white chocolate-y goodness that was the Apple Crisp, I was a little let down. So, if you’re not a fan of getting a sugar rush during breakfast, this is definitely for you!

Each serving comes in a little cardboard container convenient to make and mess-free. Just add water, wait, eat and throw away. If you’re looking to save space while backpacking, the containers aren’t for you, but they’re great for car camping. I might even stock my pantry with these for a fast and easy breakfast.

Buy through Straw Propeller for $39 for a pack of 12. You can buy a one flavor pack of 12 or mix and match.

Instant oatmeal, that’s one of those foods everyone’s had for breakfast while camping or on the trail. It’s fast, it’s easy. But after a while, those instant packets of blueberry, peaches, or strawberry can get quite boring. And that’s where Straw Propeller comes in to save the day.

The Straw Propeller Apple Crisp is hands down my most favorite product that they offer yet. (I’ve tried three!) The Apple Crisp is a fun spin on the regular ol’ apple & cinnamon grocery store packet. Walnuts are added for some extra crunch and topped off with melty white chocolate for a sweet surprise in every bite. I’m surprised there isn’t chocolate in every instant oatmeal packet! It just makes it that much more awesome. Gluten-free people, fear not! All Straw Propeller products are now made with certified gluten-free rolled oats.
