Bla Band says:

A favourite with some of our guys, this hearty stew is the very thing for the end of a long day. Stuffed with lots of rice and vegetables with beef, reindeer venison and mushrooms. Very nice! Part of the Blå Band Expedition Meal series, this meal not only tastes great but is easily prepared and filling. 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.

BEEF With Meat Content

Chose this meal for Christmas day, to eat whilst watching glorious sunset. (Reindeer… :) Took flask of boiled water, didn't worry about fill line quantity, as consistency is matter of choice. The meal is tasty, reconstitutes ok; except for bits of beef. These remained, chewy lumps; (un)edible, unless desperate for a spoonful of protein. With increasing numbers of excellent vegetarian/vegan options available; I wonder, why bother adding any meat? These meals are filling, and the packs have a handy 'zip' closure to allow for saving contents.

Like grandma would have made!

This stew is so good it tastes homemade! I love the mix of rice and mashed potatoes. Very tasty - I would even use it at home for an easy dinner. You would never guess it was a freeze dried meal. + Very easy to prepare (just add water and wait 10 mins.)
