More often than not I bring my own lunch to work, rather than buying it from the work canteen, or stealing someone else's from the communal fridge (I am of course joking about that last bit. I am forever bringing milk into work for my coffee and cereal only to discover that some other joker has stolen it, and left me with an empty carton. I've often contemplated contaminating my milk with a surprise additional ingredient (I'll let you all use your imagination what I'd contaminate it with) to exact my revenge on these thieves. Anyway, I've slightly gone off on one there...). Having sandwiches every day can get a bit boring (don't get me wrong, I love ... Read the complete review

This time of year you yearn for a hot lunchtime snack - yet get fed up with the perennial jacket potato, don't want a microwave meal and can't get yourself organised to make something the next day which can be reheated - enter a packet of "Mug Shot". Produced in the UK by Symington's Ltd, this is a 54g packet of dried pasta and chemicals - off of which can be rehydrated with boiling water. The packet is small enough to carry in a handbag in case you get caught short and most people have access to a kettle. However there are a couple of simple precautions which I would urge you to take before proceeding.:- 1. Use one of those smaller, ... Read the complete review

Mug Shots are a hot pasta based instant snack lurching somewhere between a micro pot-less pot noodle and a cup-a-soup in a man sized packet. At 68g a packet they're a teeny fraction of the size of the standard 200g pot noodle but equally they are considerably bigger than a puny 25g cup-a-soup. At the moment they are only available individaully and average 65p per pack although theres a considerable price variation between the six existing flavour variants which include creamy cheese (decidedly chemically), tomato and herb (rather pleasant and definately tomatoey), chicken and mushroom (overpoweringly mushroomy) and chicken which is definately the best of a ...

I am not normally into eating quick food and actually enjoy cooking and preparing food, however sometimes this is just not an option. I have been watching what I am eating since the start of the year and like to maintain my weight through out so when I heard about Mug Shots from a friend, I had to give these a try. They remind me a bit of Pot Noodles but I never really liked them and they are a lot fattier than these are as a snack. I sometimes have Mug Shots for dinner or for lunch at work as they are so easy to take in as they are in a packet and all they need is hot water, it really couldn't be any easier. PACKAGING So, Mug Shots come in a ... Read the complete review

Mug Shots are produced by Symington's, and are pasta or noodles with different flavourings which you put into a cup and add boiling water. The concept it the same as a cup of soup or a pot noodle but comes in individual packets. This product was recommended to me by other Slimming World members as these are extremely filling and are "free food" on the diet plan. Mug shots have a few different flavours and I tried and tested all. However I only seem to like the Tomato and Herb flavour, however I am very picky about my food. I was quite impressed with these at first. Mug shots come in a type of plastic foil packaging and are ... Read the complete review
