BBE DATES: typically 6-12 months. If you require meals with specific or long BBE dates please message us either along with your order, or before placing your order and we will do our best to accommodate.

We are aware that our BBE dates are shorter than that of many freeze dried meals. This is because we have taken great care to make our meals as healthy as possible, meaning the ingredients we select are naturally dry or dried (e.g. nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, fruits, couscous etc) and so cannot last as long as freeze dried equivalents. Herbs and spices start to lose their flavour after around 12-18 months, nuts can start to sweat, and fruits can start to release their sugars. And so, the shelf life is usually a year or so from production. As we are unwilling to compromise on the quality of our ingredients, we must instead compromise on the shelf life.


Please note that the information provided above reflects the most recent production and that the individual product label should always be checked.

Great flavour

Great flavour and very easy to prepare.

Proper food in a bag!

So I think it's worth mentioning first of all that the flavour of this particular one wasn't my sort of thing in the end, however that isn't going to affect this review as that's only personal taste.
Even though the bag that arrived was quite small the portion actually turned out to be plenty for me (although I found I needed closer to 300ml of water rather than the 200 stated).
The best thing though was that I recognised every ingredient on the packet, which compared with other camping bag foods is a rare occurrence - often I feel like I've paid a lot for what turns out to be a large bag of pot-type noodle. Not what I want at the end of a long day's walk or bike. So all credit to tentmeals for that.
Bonus is the reduced amount of packaging which is always good.
Seems I just need to find a flavour that I prefer!

I always choose tent meals

I always choose tent meals when I am doing long hikes, makes such a difference!
