TORQ SNAQ MEALS £4.25
USED BY potentially ‘hangry’ staff writer Jake Kendall-Ashton USED FOR two meals
‘Hangry’. (han-gree) Adjective: A state of anger caused by lack of food; hunger causing a negative change in emotional state. If you’ve ever been hangry or, God forbid, shared the company of a hangry person, you’ll know about it. I love my food and I also love to camp, but sometimes the two passions don’t exactly settle in perfect alignment. Cue the hanger…
On my most recent overnighter, however, I cooked up a field mushroom pasta meal by Torq, which specialises in nutrition for athletes and active folk. It was super-tasty and flavourful, a very generous serving size and, crucially for my camping buddy, kept me fully satiated. Stored in a resealable pouch with a weight of 140g, the meal packs a load of protein (25g) and carbs (75g) for energy. It also comes in smoked tomato flavour.
A drawback is the cooking time of 12-14 minutes per meal, which eats up a fair bit of gas if preparing with a camping stove. It also requires 500ml of water to cook it with.
