I’ve been having these as a daily lunch for 6 weeks now, started originally with all the flavours but this is definitely the best one, take it that’s why they’ve got rid of the others, tastes lovely, been having this everyday and I’m not bored of it yet, perfect cheaper alternative, with good protein content ideal for anyone that hasn’t got time to prep or can’t be bothered lol they are quite small portions but they fill you up nicely can’t fault them
Very convenient. Heats up quickly. Tastes pretty nice. Ingredients list doesn't seem to have anything weird. Long shelf life. Could easily see me take a few of those on long hikes too.
Tastes very good, keeps you feeling full for 5 hours, does the jobGoes Well With:On its own
Very good product, quick to prepare and surprisingly tasty. Good with veg, rice or jacket potatoes. Well worth the expense.Goes Well With:Veg, rice, jacket potatoes.
Great product for busy people. No refrigeration required just a microwave with a meal in two minutes. Calorie count is good and yet filling especially if you are watching your weight and require protein after resistance training. Reasonable "use by" date (up to 12 months) allows you to buy in larger quantities to keep average cost down and utilise discounts when offered.Goes Well With:perfect on its own but use as a topping on a baked potato for a larger meal.
This is 10/10, this tastes UNBELIEVABLE and nutrients/ calories is just great.
I was skeptical about these meal pouches when a friend suggested them to me, however once I had given them a try I haven't looked back. I have these meals for lunch at work where cooking facilities are not readily available and I don't regularly have time to prep my lunches. Really handy and stops me from buying junk and wasting my money. The Chilli Con Carne is definitely one to try if you want to err on the side of caution, however all the recipes are decent. It does come out thicker than if you cooked it from fresh, that is to be expected but do not let that put you off! 2.5 minutes in the microwave and you have a healthy lunch, who can argue with that!!
Brilliant product tastes great, perfect for lunch easy to cook wack in micro and done tastes just like a chilli con carne
I've tried various protein meals before but none of them have been quite as tasty as this one.... The chilli also has just the right amount of 'kick' to make it tasty, but not too spicy. Not too 'soupy', which can be an issue with meals of this nature and has great macros (50/50 split protein/carbs and low in sugar & saturated fat, however, it is slightly higher in sodium than i'd like). Really convenient for work and immediately before or after a workout as there's no need to refrigerate and it takes only 2.5 mins in the microwave. A definate must buy for a busy or lazy gym goer, I've just bought 12x more pouches!. Goes Well With:On its own if you're cutting or keeping to a low calorie diet... with bread and/or rice if you are bulking.
Great taste, really convenient after a workout or light lunch. I find the portion size good but for those with a bigger appetite just add rice or pasta.Goes Well With:Protein pasta and rice
Great tasting and hits the spot when you want a quick easy mealGoes Well With:Plain noodles...
These are so soooo good! Everything I am craving since I'm vegetarian. I wasn't expecting too much but it just blew my mind haha
A really nice chilli con carne, good kick to it. So easy to prepare and much better for work lunch than a Tesco 3 quid meal deal.
Just recently bought another 18 of these. Really tasty and the macros are amazing. I add a piece of protein bread and a sprinkle of cheese. Works out around 50g protein / 500 calories. Perfect cutting meal.Goes Well With:Protein bread.
I was so pleased with the Chicken Tikka.. I could have eaten two. So now I am the Chilly con carne.. Sorry I had to lick the plate.Goes Well With: With potato. Like jacket
Excellent: quick preparation (2.5min) and great taste. Goes Well With:Perfect on its own
Excellent and very tasty. Really quick to prepare and you can use a hob to cook the chilli, if you don't have a microwave. I usually add feta cheese to the chilli to add another texture and taste. I also generally eat this with a salad as I find I need something else with it.The chilli has a little kick but it is not at all overpowering. I regularly buy this.Goes Well With:Salad, cheese
Delicious and filling, will continue to buyGoes Well With:scoop of greek yogurt goes great with it
Loved this, quick easy and tastes great! Would definitely recommend this one! Only thing I could fault is the bag is slightly small. However mixing this with a bit more rice does the trick. I order this everytime I order from my protein!
Best tasting in my opinion.keeps me going when snack is needed.
