The Light My Fire Meal Kit is a well designed solution for backpacking or picnics. Our daughter bought one for her Duke of Edinburgh Award, so we took it for a test drive to see how good it is when used for real.
Light My Fire is the company behind the famous Spork. A spoon that’s also a fork (with a little bit of a cutting edge too).
We now have a collection of Sporks in my backpack for picnics and camping.
With one eye on her Duke of Edinburgh award, our daughter bought this Meal Kit from Light My Fire. And yes, it does contain a Spork 😉
Light My Fire Meal Kit Review
The meal kit comes in this neat triangular shaped box with a large band around the box, so your meal contents doesn’t empty into your backpack.
This box conceals the ‘meal kit’.
There’s quite a lot packed inside this little triangular box:
- The lid is designed to be used as a plate, and the body of ‘the box’ can be used as a bowl.
- There are two SnapBoxes. One is 170 ml and the other 320 ml.
- A ‘pack-up-cup’ .
- A strainer/cutting board.
- And of course, a Spork.
You can see this set packs a lot into a little case, and ideal for backpacking or picnics.
The two SnapBoxes seal tight and are ideal for storing things you don’t want to leak. It should be noted that isn’t the case with the main box, but it’s still good if you’re going to store some things, but make sure it’s not anything that could leak.
The cup is quite a neat design, with the bottom of the cup folding into the top.
The only downsides we can see with the cup design is that it’s not as stable as a mug when full, so be careful not to knock it over. The hinge on the lid is also showing signs of wear already.
Sandwiches or a Meal?
The Meal Kit is ideal for packing away some sandwiches in the big box with lots of other nibbles in the smaller SnapBoxes.
We even found taking a home-made pasta salad was fine in the big box.
Another excellent use for this meal kit is when you take a small stove or trangia. The various boxes can hold items to cook, and even something to make a brew too.
All in all, this is a great little meal kit for an individual heading off outdoors.
If you’re interested in getting one of these Light My Fire Meal Kits, there are many different colours you can choose. Everyone can get their favourite colour 😉
Note, the Light My Fire Meal Kit we bought is version 2.0. The original meal kit is slightly different.
