Thread: Vesta Meals!

  1. #1

    Red face Vesta Meals!

    After reading some memories of these I just had to go and buy one! Was thrilled to see that the range seems to be exactly the same....Beef Risotto, Beef Curry, Chow Mein and Paella. I've bought a Paella as it was always a *real* treat to be allowed to have one for dinner in the late 70s!

    Will it taste the same? Will it? I don't know......fingers crossed!

    Didn't you get an 'extra' packet of crispy things with the Chow Mein?

    Yes, and you still do! You have to deep fry them. Haven't tried that one yet, mind!

    They were the last word in exotic cuisine back then before multiculture arrived.

    Hey Momma M - do remember to report back to us on what it tastes like!!!

    And Steve - assuming you mean what SPAM actually stands for (and you're not referring to some cheekier version!) then isn't it spiced pork and ham? Not *quite* an acronym, but close. If it were a true aconym we'd all be eating SPAH. Which sounds revolting, and I wouldn't feed it to my dog.
