Vesta curries

This was my Friday evening treat! After I had watched Rentaghost followed by John Craven's Newsround and when Crackerjack with Stu Francis (ooh I could jump off a grape!) had just started, my gran used to bring me in my Vesta beef curry. It looked like a tray full of string and cardboard with some chopped up rubber, but tasted devine. I can still taste the monosodium glutomate to this day!

I finished just in time for that quiz show with Angela Rippon (can't remember what it was called). This was pre Neighbours days remember! Life was so simple back then! P.S Morph and chaz were cool!

    I used to have a vesta curry now and then as it brough back memories of childhood. Sadly I have just tried the "new and improved recipie" beef curry. Only one word can describe it VILE! There are no meat chunks its bland and watery non fruity dish water. Why oh why do manufacturers do this? If it aint broken don't fix it! Wont be buying that again!

    Has anyone ever commented on the fact that Vesta meals were originally made by 'Bachelor's Foods'? Hmmmm?

    Yes that was one of my favourites too!!! I also loved the Chow Mein with the Crispy noodles and can still buy it even here in Spain and also the Paella (nice) and the Beef Curry we can get here. My brothers fave was the Cop Suey. I remember when i had my first Chow Mein from a Cjhinese,it was completely different and i was dissapointed as the Vesta one was nicer.

    I have lived in the states for 21 yrs now and have been trying to find someone who sells these! My absolute favourites were the beef risotto and paella ones. I would always eat it with bread and butter, heaping spoonfuls onto the bread. Oh, it was sheer dehydrated chemically processed delight!
