    I like to have a couple of Look What We Found meal pouches on the van for if I've got nothing else in or I can't get to a shop, or I just really can't be bothered to cook from scratch. They're great because the pouches don't need to be refrigerated and they can just be heated up on the hob - oh, and they don't contain any naff preservatives etc.

    Anyway, today I got my order from them and inside was a flyer for another of their companies

    These are similar, ambient store, heat on the hob pouches that are all Gluten, Nut and Milk free. I obviously haven't tried any of them yet but if they're of the same quality as the Look What We Found ones then they should be ok.

    I don't suffer from any food allergies myself but thought that I would post this as I know that some of you guys and gals do, and that you may find these handy as a store cupboard emergency or as in my case, just as a really can't be bothered option.

    Will have a good look at these, we usually take a stock of tined curries, but they are heavy, this kind of stuff looks ideal :)

    Those look interesting, the normal stuff, not the gluten and wotsit free which thankfully we don't need. Unlike tins they shouldn't rattle although I doubt there is much weight saving. An empty tin weighs next to nothing, it is the contents where the weight comes from. They should be a good emergency backup. I take it they have a reasonable shelf life?

    We've had a few of the gluten free options, very tasty and easy to prepare.

    Will have a look as it's nice to have some stuff in for "emergency" situations.

    It's up to about 12 months shelf life. The stuff that I've just got is April 2016. When you click through to each item it says what the BB date is.

    They store more or less indefinitely provided you don't try and eat one. :)
