I bought some of these tubes the other day – wasn’t to sure what i would do with them but at R10 for 2 at the local Mr Price sport – cause they were “shop soiled” ( which was only the packaging i might add ) it seamed like a good buy.

Initially i had no idea what i might do with them but it dawned on me this morning, the ration bars I have posted on my blog before are not so great to eat because they are very dry and hard .. which in itself is good but with these tubes i though to make them easier to eat and more appetizing, the idea is to put the ingredients in the tubes dry, other than the honey, and add a little more powdered sugar to make up for this, then when needed open the clip, add warm/ hot water, enjoy, well at least thats the theory, will have to test and get back to you all.

I will see when I test, but the tubes may not be big enough for a full ration which wont help much.

The tubes also might work well for peanut butter which is very high in nutritional value – although I have read of people who use this for holding anything liquid having issues with the clips that break or leak , so I would stick to the dry stuff when on the move …
