Bla Band are the Scandinavian market leaders for expedition meals. Originally developed though collaboration with the Swedish military; the meals are now a must have for every outdoor enthusiast.

Bla Band says:

Creamy rice pudding with strawberries. Part of the Blå Band Expedition Meal series, this meal not only tastes great but is easily prepared and filling. An ideal start to a busy day. Can be eaten hot or cold.

Staff here at UOG have found Bla Band's meals pretty tasty and easy to prepare. All you have to do is simply fill the packet up to the indicated level with hot or cold water, stir, wait a little and your ready to go! Not all food brands feature a water level indicator but we prefer they did as they are incredibly helpful.

The packaging is made from Flextrus Transofoil, which is both fully recyclable as a plastic and is designed in such a way to act as an excellent insulator, helping keep your meal hotter for longer.

There's something for everyone as Bla Band’s meals cater for people with special dietary requirements. Some of the meals are suitable for vegetarians, those with lactose intolerance and people who need their food to be gluten free.

Testing Freeze Dried meals at Ultralight Outdoor Gear 2.0 MARK'S TASTE TEST -  Bla Band says this is a breakfast, at 650 kcals it’s a substantial portion. I didn’t like the taste at all, in fact it was so bad that I couldn’t eat it. The rice had reconstituted fine but it didn’t taste like rice. 2/10 because it’s a big portion if you can eat it.

Oddly unpleasant & synthetic.

I had high hopes for this after really enjoying Bla Band's wilderness stew. Unfortunately this is at the other end of the spectrum. The rice is mushy and the flavour is synthetic and 'thin'. I can only describe it as tasting like a 'Smart Price' sugar free Angel Delight!
