    The world food aisle in my super asda is up towards the bread. The pronto was hiding high up so look carefully.

    Bingo this time :)

    I got six of each flavour just in case

    It says to boil for three minutes on a hob, has anyone done it in a cosy for 10?

    TESCO has it in 60g tubs* ~ instructions say Open lid half way>>> mix ... hot ... etc <<< close lid, leave for three minutes. I can't see that half a foil pouch in cosy would be different ;) .


    * One 60g tub for 99p versus three 120g packs for £1.50 ... lemme think on that ... o_O .

    Could always get a 500g bag of plain cornmeal divvy it up into portions and add your own flavourings ;)

    Do you think these supermarkets see a spike in random foods due to campers? Lol

    Tried one of these tonight - really nice , very authentic. Not loads of calories, would need sundries - I picked it up for a quid, the range seem to be discounted quite often in Tesco and Asda.

    I use a mix of either ainsley harriot spicy cous cous and crushed costco noodles, both mixed with lots of olive oil to add calories add some pepperami fire stick and its edible.
    Breakfast is instant golden syrup porrage mixed with full fat milk powder, almond powder and haselnut bits. Costco also regularly have 1kg packs of dried sweetened cranberries for 6 quid, I mix these with lots of mixed nuts and yellow m&ms .
    Not very exciting but light and cheap

    Home Bargains are sellimg these off, multiple flavours and other brands. i think the most expensive was 60p.

    The protein flapjack is 80g, a whopping 355 calories and 12g of protein.
    The crunch bar will be easier going, only 40g and 142 calories but has 13g of protein.

    I've discovered (given in) pot noodle and such like, in this case Morrisons pasta/noodle pots, and was quite impressed. For breakfast either readybrek with muesli or just muesli. In between, whatever I can carry, buy, find etc, wraps, flapjacks, crisps, chocolate, cheese, salami, tuna etc.
