What I like about it? We were in Perth for a holiday and I bought one of this as my emergency food supply. It proves to be quite handy during travelling. The bean salad is ready-to-eat (I brought camping cutlery). It is a good source of protein, fibre and legumes are excellent source of low glycaemic index carbohydrates. It is surprising filling for a small tub. It has quite a mild spiced flavour which I really like.
What I don't like about it? It is still quite high in sodium. However when you are in the service station in the middle of Perth, this with a piece of fruit will do me for a light lunch.
Would I give them to my children? Yes if we are short of time to prepare our own bean salad for picnics etc.
