If you are used to trekking or walking in very rural places, you’ll know how difficult it can be getting a decent hot meal when you’re enjoying the great outdoors. Besides, who can be bothered with all that twig rubbing malarkey or carrying one of those primitive trekking stoves! Not us because we’ve discovered HOTCANS. Despite sounding like a chain of dodgy lap dancing clubs, these amazing 400g tins of yumminess contain delicious ready meals that heat up, as if by magic, when you crack them open. No hob, campfire or washing up liquid required! Happy days! So easy to use and to cook yourself a delicious HOT meal: Place can onto lid, pierce outer jacket with included key, open can and wait 12 minutes. Now for the difficult bit: eating out of a can LOL! The heating process is a totally safe and eco-friendly exothermic reaction which heats up your highly scoffable meal in about 12 minutes. We’ve heard of convenience food but this is ridiculous. Mmm…piping hot cheese and tomato ravioli! Of course this whole exercise would be completely pointless if the grub was minging, but HOTCAN recipes are really rather sumptuous. We’re not talking haute cuisine here but they’re certainly up there with your better quality ready meals. What’s more HOTCANS are suitably calorific and nutritionally balanced, so as well as satisfying all you outdoorsy types, they put sandwiches, Pot Doodahs and rival so-called fast food to shame. Pizza Yuck and Unlucky Fried Deadthing? No thanks. flavours available: Cheese and Tomato Ravioli & Bangers and Beans. Come to think of it HOTCANS are good enough to eat anywhere, even in the house. And with a shelf life of three years you can stash a few in the cupboard for emergencies – you know, knackered microwave, post pub lethargy, extreme laziness, power cuts and World War III. That kind of thing. When cooked food is this easy to prepare, the only hard bit is deciding which HOTCAN you fancy? Cheese and Tomato Ravioli or Bangers and Beans.
