Caloric density of food


I'll be honest. I've always bought backpacking food by wandering around the grocery store and grabbing anything that had a decent number of calories and a fast enough cook time. We did mail drops for the JMT though so for the first time ever I did a bunch of Kcal/oz calculations. The results were surprising enough that I made a spreadsheet of them for your enjoyment: the data

General observations
