Well Sports Fans, err, make that Camp Fans what do you think about a meal in a bag? It comes with its own environmentally sound heater bag for the main entree. Every year I purchase a small box of these meals that serve as an emergency supply while out in the bonnies. There have been times when the weather has been so bad that I surrender and open up one of these to nourish the body. Quick and fast without the use of fire.
The first thing that I noticed this year was the price has increased significantly. Two years ago I could get a meal for less than eight dollars. Not this year. I wonder why? Oh, ya, there is this COVID 19 thing going around. I purchased them anyway because I use them as a first aid food pack should the need arise.
Most on the market are billed as Military Meals and there is more than one company. It's important to shop and compare prices before you buy. Another thing, watch the deals and then check the handling and shipping fees - if you are not paying attention you might find yourself paying a lot more than you should.
The one that I'm holding in my hand at the moment is a XMRE meal that has Chicken Creole with Brown Rice Meal Kit coming in at a whopping 1,180 Calories. Now that's a full meal mind you. So it has the Chicken, Pears in Syrup, Garbanzo Beans, Beverage Lemon-Lime Drink, and Cheese Spread with Jalapenos. It also has utensils and a flameless heater. The picture at the top left also has coffee, tea, sugar, etc. I don't want that because I have my own brew that I prefer.
