This is not a review as such, I bought this from a shop out of curiosity and just before I prepared it to eat I thought I might as well take a few pictures and write it down.
This is the second one of these meals that I have eaten, the first was a Spaghetti Bolognese which was surprisingly decent.
Take a look at this for the ingredients and nutritional information
Preparation could not be more simple. Boil some water, about 400 ml, Fish out the oxygen absorbent packet inside, Fill it to the black line with water. Stir it. Seal the pouch, Wait 8 minutes, Eat it.
As a general rule of thumb with these types of food, looking at them before you eat is not always recommended as it may put you off. However, we should really apply the taste test, smell test and sight test when trying out new food as this is our primary way of determining if it is safe to eat or has been compromised in some way.
I was surprised to see that this thing looked more like real food before I put the water in
It smells like Parmesan cheese, at least I hope that it what it is because if not then it smells like sweaty sock.
It tastes OK though in that, this is safe to eat. It claims to have 600 calories and 4 hours after eating it I am beginning to feel hungry again so I suppose this is about right.
This was not my favorite dehydrated meal, I am not sure how they did it but they managed to make a pretty poor carbonara. That it is a dehydrated meal is not he problem, I think that this was not a nice meal even before it was dehydrated.
I think I will give this one a miss in future but the Spaghetti Bolognese was much better.
7/10, extra points awarded due to ease of preparation and no cleanup required.
