Tent Meals Friendly Friday Giveaway

8th Sep 2017


Tent Meals Box

Over the summer we’ve been busy testing some meals from company Tent Meals (we admit this isn't the most arduous!).  They have kept us fed on our recent Elbrus expedition, on a SUPing adventure down the River Wye, on mountain overnights in the Lake District and on a starry MamTor bivvy.  Now, after extensive nourishment assessment, it is time to share their amazingness with other Peak Mountaineers in our latest Friendly Friday Giveaway…….

Tent Meals are a small business focussed on producing great tasting, easy prep meals that offer a good nutritional balance and excellent value.  Their range has a selection of breakfast meals (although we’ve found these to be just as good for lunches), trail snacks and main courses.  There are 500kcal and 800kcal portion sizes available in the main meals and breakfast options (we love this idea) and all the meals are suitable for vegetarian or vegan diets.  

The snack bags can be munched as soon as the bag is opened and the mains and breakfasts only need boiling water to be added and then users simply wait a few minutes - as simple as possible because you don’t want to waste your outdoor time following complicated instructions.

The meals on offer are varied enough to keep you fuelled for a several day trip without getting bored.  The mains feature Almond Jalfrezi, an Italian Inspired dish (featuring cous cous with brazil nuts and almonds, sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan) and also a Moroccan Mango meal (spiced cous cous with mango pieces, raisins, apricots and walnuts).  

The breakfasts are Cinnamon Porridge, Seed and Red Berry Porridge and Blueberry Burst Porridge (believe us….these are all yummy!).  For trail snacks you can choose from Choc and Nut Jumble, Mango Mingle Trail Snack and The Classic Combo (with walnut chunks, cranberries and flame raisins).

Tent Meals represent excellent value for money and they stack up really well against other options on the market.  The 500kcal mains are £4.50 and it’s £5.50 for the large size main option.  Breakfasts are £3.80 (500kcal) and £4.50 (800kcal) and the snacks all cost £1.95 each.  The value is particularly apparent when you see how packed with natural ingredients they all are.  

Of course, it doesn’t matter how good they sound, or what great value they offer, if they don’t taste good.  Fortunately, this isn’t a problem.  We have tried every meal and snack in the range and they are, without exception, yummy.  Even the Peak Mountaineering juniors liked them all…..and that is quite an ask!  It is nice to find some dehydrated meals that really do offer a tasty meal after a busy mountain or river day. 

So, we hope we’ve whetted your appetite and maybe it is time to try some yourself?  Tent Meals have kindly supplied us with 3 sets of main, breakfast and snack packs to give away to 3 lucky Peak Mountaineers.  It’s enough to keep you well fed for an upcoming adventure but please be careful - once you’ve tried Tent Meals we guarantee you’ll be wanting more!
