This is the Hungerbuster from Portion Pack Foods. This is a strongly military influenced pack – probably because these are the guys who supply both the Australian and New Zealand Army with their ration packs.
Gidday, and welcome to another product review. This time around I’ll be talking about some food from Radix Nutrition, made right here in New Zealand. It’s a new product to the outdoors and camping market, it’s so new in fact, it’s only just beginning to hit the shelves. I was sent a few samples to…
