Mealmates, Mt Aspiring National Park

Five days climbing food - no problem - 6 mealmates per hour will get you up anything: Adrian Monks, dietician on our Mt Aspiring trip.

Mealmates are salty cracker biscuits which have a very high KJ/weight ratio... which I discovered by reading the backs of all the biscuit packets in the supermarket one day. Mealmates are now compulsory CUTC tramping food. Personally I'd be happy not to see another Mealmate in my life... Do they exist in Europe?
