    Just a thread to share photos of packaged food we come across - both good and bad. Things that make you go hmmmm (thanks C&C Music Factory!)

    Rules are simple - it must be packaged food; like it if you would like to try it; comment if you feel the need to hate.

    I'll start with something I came across online today - Oreo Churros!

    The screen you are reading.
    I can speak very highly of this (if it is available in Australia?)

    Strive Foods are a great small Tasmanian Producer of pre-packaged dried foods. I tried them out on the Great Ocean Walk last week. Much, much better than other brands generally available in camping/adventure stores. Made of real food and a reasonable price.

    For example - Pasta Bolognese

    I like these for camping and for when I'm too lazy to cook.
    Taste okay and at $1.67 per packet, you can't complain! All you need is some rice and you're good to go.

    Does @MTR have a new sideline apart from developing?

    I do agree that some of their food looks pretty good (for dehydrated food anyway), but I'll definitely have to disagree with you on the reasonable price bit. $16 for 300g? That's over $50/kg which is crazy expensive! Especially given that their meals are based on rice or pasta which are around the $2/kg mark.

    Where do you get them? Great standby for the Motorhome.
    Can people please name place to get it and price. Thanks.

    That was a comparison to Backcountry and other brands. Strive win on the food quality and value for money front.

    Serving size was well and truly ample for one.

    I could dehydrate food myself, however the prep takes a long time.

    They sell them at Indian supermarkets everywhere, but I've only found that price at the fruit shop outside Coles at Parramatta. 3 for $5. I actually had two tonight because posting in this thread made me feel like it. :D
