/ Expedition foods.
Last time I tried freeze dry food there was more nutrition in the packet than the contents, surely things have improved?
Yes, they're pricey but tasty, and more calories than most dried meals if you go for the 800 calorie options. The chicken tikka is my favourite.
As these things go they are pretty good, but pricy. I tend to take them when I'm either seriously skimping on weight (mug rather than pan), or in winter.
For normal backpacking I go for cheaper options.
Look good but they don't seem to have any stock!
Think they've gone bust.
They stock their own brand stuff which is very good but also 'real turmat' is a Norwegian brand who are also excellent, but more expensive. -their wolf fish casserole is really good!
Yes the Bewell food is good, (Shepherds Pie particularly), the packaging is nifty as well as the packet pulls out and forms a stable structure to balance on the ground or in the tent.
Be careful of the ration sizes, some meals will have a variety of energy content. After a long day on an ice-cap a fat knacker like me needs a good 700+ calories in the bag.
To get the bits out of the corners a long handled spoon will become an object of great envy within basecamp.
Mountain house are easily the tastiest/least foul of all of the brands i have tried.
So we can know what that means - what other brands have you tried? ;-)
Don't half play with your constitution tho..
Yikes, just looked up Real Turmat - almost restaurant prices!
