Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Princes Quick Eat Confirmed sighting: Princes Quick Eat
Posted: 22:25 Mon 19-Dec-2005. Price: 1.98/ 330g. Location: Morrisons, Camden, London. Sub-flavours: Tikka Masala with rice; Chicken in Mushroom Sauce with pasta; Beef Bolognese with pasta; Green Thai Chicken Curry with rice; Tomato and Mascarpone Sauce with pasta (tested). Nutritional unusualness: Unspecified salt content in nutritional info.
Snackspot reports: Regular readers will know that I can't resist anything that you put in a microwave, and Princes even go so far to claim that these are "the first long-life ambient light meals to include a mix of protein and carbohydrate food in a single microwave-ready plastic pot". The Tomato and Mascarpone Sauce certainly tasted OK, but was a bit dull in appearance when I took the lid off - it's also a bit pricier than Pot Noodle, which I think would be offset if the container's metal rim actually lived up to expectations and produced some sort of spectacular microwave-powered indoor fireworks display.

...Morrisons turned out to be something of a microwaveable minefield for a "pretend vegetarian" such as myself, with fresh temptations in the form of Eatwell Fast Feaster sandwiches (2 for 2 offer) and two kinds of Ginsters Mozzarella Bakes (1.49, buy one get one free) that I hadn't seen before - now I can't wait to try the likes of Global Cuisine's microwave Ready Roast ("the enjoyment of a cut roast but with the ease of a ready meal"), or Premier Foods' self-heating Crosse and Blackwell Hunger Breaks ("By pouring a pouch of salty water on to a heater pad, a chemical reaction is started that heats the food in 10 minutes"), possibly a technology that could be combined with Tesco's musical Christmas Sandwich which " plays a medley of Christmas tunes when the packaging is opened".
