Backpacker Magazine Editors Choice Award

Pho Wins Backpacker Editor's Choice Award

"When I learned that the Chicken Pho was awarded Backpacker Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award, I was absolutely thrilled and honored. People always ask me, “What’s your favorite meal?” I try to be diplomatic and say I love them all in different ways—it’s like choosing a favorite child as a parent, you just can’t do it with grace. So, this is super top secret and please don’t tell anyone, but the Pho is my favorite meal. Shhhhhh." -chef Jen Scism

The most coveted award in the outdoor industry, Backpacker Magazine's Editor's Choice Award, has been awarded to Good To-Go's Chicken Pho. This validates what many hungry hikers have learned as they dug into our latest creation. It's not often that ‘add-water-to-bag’ fare closely resembles the authentic version. But that's not to say ours was meant to resemble anything—this is the real thing.

It begins with chef Jen's love for the most delicious cuisines from around the world, creatively turning them into meals that are shelf-stable and ready-to-eat, wherever your adventures take you. Jen found her inspiration for this meal on a month-long trip to Vietnam, where she fell in love with the country’s Pho. During her travels, she would go from town to town searching out the best versions of this iconic dish. Jen’s favorite memory was that Pho was often served for breakfast…noodles for breakfast? Yes please!
