Freeze dried food - if you're into carrying light, this is for you. These are properly sized portions and pretty tasty too!

Freeze dried food is good when potable water is available so that you don't have to carry it, like when trekking in Finland. Blå Band stuff has the usual modern features - it doesn't require cooking after adding water, and you can eat it straight out of the bag.

Normally the Blå Band food has a shelf life usually for two years. These won't turn bad after that, though. These particular campaing discount portions are probably a year away from the official expiration date.

Despite the Swedish name, the food itself is actually made in Germany.

I would recommend for a friend

Alone in the house with the wife and kids on holiday. Hungry. Nothing in the fridge. Survival mode on. Can't order pizza every day, my CS95 smock is already a bit tight over the stomach. Perfect opportunity to try the cheese-broccoli pasta. Wow, this actually tastes great. Add some salt and pepper, and this is a really tasty outdoor meal. One of the better outdoor meals I have tried, only beaten by Norwegian combat rations. Far better than Mountain House for example. Rating 5/5. The bag packs down very flat and compact compared to other brands, an excellent space saver in the ruck. The bag is rectangular and opens on the long side, very practical and stable. You should also open the bottom completely flat, rip it slightly on the sides. This is not obvious, and not so visible in the product pictures. It makes a big difference in stability and also helps when you mix the water and food. The label says "outdoor meal" so I had to eat it on the balcony. A bit annoying since it was raining, but hey, food always tastes better outdoor. Get some extra salt and pepper the next time you go to your favourite hamburger joint, and keep them in a small plastic bag, ready for your next outdoor meal. Yes, I'm poor. Too many kids... It seems a bit tricky to make the broccoli soft without overcooking the pasta, next time I will wait a few minutes more. The portion is quite large, I couldn't finish it all so I saved some for the evening snack. The broccoli was perfect a few hours later. I was just missing the freeze-dried beer. Expiry Feb 2018, good enough considering the price.

*** Update 03.08.2017: Tried the Couscous Chicken. Rating 3/5.
Not bad but a bit too spicy for my taste. Too acid aftertaste. I have lived in Eastern Europe and arab countries, so I do like spicy food more than the average guy, but this was not my cup of tea. There must be some chicken inside, because the label says so, but you need a microscope to find it. Too bad I bought 10 of these. These also expire in Feb 2018. Still a good stomach filler for the price.
