MX3 freeze dried meals are among the best we've tasted, especially if you can manage your own seasoning or fresh additions. Look out for our 'Taste Test' reviews to help you pick the best.
MX3 says: MX3 Adventure is a range of individual meals (starters, mains & desserts) that have been formulated for all sport and outdoor enthusiasts (hill-walkers, climbers, sailors...)
MX3 Adventure is a practical and tasty range that will bring you a complete meal and the energy required for your activity.
The key tests of any meal are taste and consistency and Freeze Dried meals vary widely in their performance in these areas. We first came across MX3 in 2013 and after trying a few flavours we recognised the quality is 'up there' with the best available - so we were keen to stock them. Having tried quite a few since we've confirmed our initial impressions, with very few exceptions you won't be disappointed with an MX3 meal.
As with all freeze dried offerings they are greatly enhanced if you add seasonings and fresh ingredients to them, and when planning a trek I would usually weave freeze dried into the menu with fresher options rather than relying on freeze dried meals alone - that can get a bit dreary.

|6.5||MARK'S TASTE TEST - Top marks for reconstituting, rice was fluffy and dry, none of it was hard or not rehydrated. The disappointing thing was it didn't really taste of Paella, nor could I find much chicken. It says to season to taste - and it really needs this. I added chopped up sausages and with these additions it was quite good. Conclusion: 5.5/10 if you don't season or add anything, 7.5 if you do - it forms a good base for a meal.|
