New wall food ideas?

I've fallen into a wall food rut. The Chunky Soup, canned fruit, pouched Indian food, and Jolly Ranchers thing is no longer cutting it. My latest idea is to stuff a few burritos into tennis ball cans, but that will only last a day or two. Anyone have anything else that's new?

Sadly I live off cliff bars, trail mix and pb&J sandwiches. Nothing original from me. Unsure
If I think of anything I'll let you know

One of the rice companies has readyrice, which is in garlic and butter and four cheese flavor, it just requires warming, its already soft, and delish!

You can't beat a can of easy cheese for a good time. (Um, M, you get credit for this one!) take some flavored triscuits or wheat thins and go to town!

The cheese sticks (cheddar, string) last for a long time

Individual snack-sized packages cookies, such as oreos, kickass

Ramen is amazing on a wall for breakfast (thanks M!)

Pete takes boxes of doughnuts

Ensure drinks are tasty

Magic chip mix: Pre crush doritos and fritos, you can fit truckloads of these into sandwitch size ziplocks if you crush them, and the salt is yummy. Make daily servings. AAAAwwweeeessssooooommmmee.

Pudding cups

Rockstar and Redbull

Cider packets and cocoa packets if its cold, just add hot water.

Cracker snack packets, very nice.

Clif Blocks are incredible, way better than cliff shots, no stickey packet (M, I'm talking to YOU!) and the blocks are fun to chew...fun relative to hauling.

I take cereal and dried milk in individual serving sized ziplocks. Just add water and you have cereal. :)

Anyway, also don't forget your extra pulleys so you can haul all of this deliciousness.

:)

Yogart tubes are nice - good quick energy with a nice taste. They have not spoiled for me even after 6 days on the wall.

Individually wrapped cheese is also good.

The small soups (6 oz) that come in the microwave containers is great for a quick snack. You don't even need to hunt down a spoon

Pudding cups and fruit cups can be taped together so the fragile tops are not exposed.

Bagels are good - get the cheap ones found in a grocery store.

I second the summer sausage and squeeze cheese. Nothing beats a big tasty block of pure fat and grease on the wall.

Beer is great if you have time. If you need to haul ass it just drags you down. Bring a few for the top though.

Chips and salsa.

Fig neutons.

Spam and bagles.

Chocolate covered espresso beans.

Fire up some baked beans and a can of diced tomatoes. Throw in some cheese and top off with Tapatio. Dish up on some hamburger buns for some sloppy joes. Real crowd pleaser.

Can of baked beans, stewed tomatoes and corn. Throw in a pack or two of that ready made rice, some cheese and put it in a tortilla or eat out of the pot. Good for winter walls.
