I love doing this...but I had to use Jello gelatin
instead of Jello pudding. One time all I had was pistaccio pudding and it was absolutely disgusting drinking it warm! But the raspberry gelatin was awesome warm.
I've also heard of people making their oatmeal at night and sleeping with it, so it was warm and ready in the morning. Don't know what kind of bottle they were using, but this would really reduce the risk of wetting your gear if you could find a suitable one.
