Gear Review: PocketFuel Pineapple Coconut

Go nuts over these flavored spreads from PocketFuel.

“A nutty spread that tastes like Hawaii!” proclaims one tester, who loved this dry-roasted almond butter flecked with chunks of real pineapple and crunchy coconut. The resealable, no-mess squeeze pouch (about the size of three standard nut-butter pouches) cuts energy-food trash on speedy overnights or all-day epics when you need lots of fast, calorie-dense (135 per ounce) fuel.

The gluten-free, vegan snack is great as a shooter, cracker spread, or oatmeal mix-in. It even comes in a 20-ounce pouch ($20 with refilling attachment) perfect for reloading the 3-ounce singles while basecamping. Also new to the now-eight-flavor line: Vanilla Haze, a rich, sweetened hazelnut butter blend. $5; 3.4 oz.;
