I had trouble finding the Chicken initially but it wasn't the store it was me. The chicken isn't always by the tuna. Look for the canned chicken, the foil packs will be near there.

McDonalds has grape and strawberry jelly.

Jordon, that Chicken can be hard to find sometimes. Try big box stores like a Super Wal Mart or something. Worst case scenario, buy some online. I am sure it is easily found there. And welcome to White Blaze. I hope you enjoy the trail.

Weirdly enough, the only place I found foil-packed chicken was at a gas station convenience store. The Bumblebee BBQ chicken is good if you can find it!

Ask someone who works there, Jordan. And if not, look for the kinds in tin cans. Not a significant diff in the weight of container.

Over the years I have used a lot of canned and pouched meats when doing recipes - and as TJ points out, there isn't a big weight difference once empty. The only difference is in size - the 7 ounce pouches work well for two. A 3 or 5 ounce can works good for one.
Though in some areas cans are not allowed though. I get the pop top ones as well - easy to open.

What areas and why are cans not allowed? I would think (do think) that itís none of anyoneís business how I carry my food as long as I pack out the garbage.


If you want to buy lots of jelly packs instead of having to buy a gourmet Mickey Dís breakfast to get one, look for a restaurant supply store (we have Gordon Foods here) and see if you can buy them in bulk. May be a good idea to go in with some friends or yopu may have to eat a lot of jelly.

Very few Targets carry jelly packets anymore. Just the ones with Food Aves with grills/fryers.

What bags of chicken are you looking for?

First off, where are cans not allowed?
Secondly, for me it is important to not get the full breast in a bag -- very tough and stringie. The chunked chicken is the best.
Canned chicken can be off loaded into a zip bag just before you hit the trail.

The one place that I know of that does not allow glass or tin cans in the backcountry is the Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario.

BWCA has that rule, and it's certainly backcountry, though not known for hiking.

CONTAINERS
Cans and glass bottles are not allowed.
Containers of fuel, insect repellent, medicines, personal toilet articles, and other items that are not foods or beverages are the only cans and bottles you may keep in their original containers.
Food may be packaged in plastic containers that must be packed out with you.

There are odd pockets out there (fortunately none are where I live!). My thoughts are that it is where horse packers and canoes have been historically and left refuse pits and or fire pits with garbage. And as well garbage in the water. (cans could cut as well if left in water and don't burn).
For us who hike it isn't a real issue but one reason to always read the rules on wilderness's before heading out :)
