Plenny pot review

Just finished my first six boxes of Plenny pots, two of each flavour.

I really love the whole concept and the formula, it’s pretty damn awesome! So easy to prepare and amazing how thick and tasty it gets after a while. I really like that they all are a bit spicy. Just like any other freeze dried food it’s perfect for bringing on adventures and just boil the water on the camping stove.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I realised it’s pretty easy to add some more rice or pasta if you wanna have a bigger meal with more calories.

My absolute favourite is the Creamy Cajun Pasta, then the Vegetable Korma Rice and last the Tikka Masala which I didn’t really like.

Looking forward to some more flavours in the future, preferably another pasta variant or something completely different. Could also be an idea to come up with something a bit milder for people who are not into spicy food.


I was also looking forward to try the new Pizza bar and Korma/Masala pots, but I guess today is not my day. One of the Cajun pots (delicious!!!) was already opened and the content scattered all over the box.

I ordered both, the Tikka Masala and Vegetable Korma Rice and I love them like heck. I hate mushrooms tho.

They are really great if you like indian cuisine or general chicken curry rice (which is what they taste like imo).

Great Job!

+1. Cajun Pasta is nice because it has the pasta pieces that are a bit bigger than rice. I also like the spiciness and taste of the Vegatable Korma. I’m not going to order Tikka Masala again, it wasn’t horrible (I finished the six pots I got) but it’s not for me.

Yeah this would be great. I like that they’re spicy, but my gf thinks it’s too much. She’d probably like a milder variant.


OK, now I have also tried all three pots. Cajun is definitively the best, doesnt even taste like an instant meal. Korma is also very good, but a more spicy version would be even better. I will definitively order again.

On the other hand, tikka masala is not really my thing. I will finish the pots (tikka masala), but I will probably not order it anymore.

Can only chime in from my first experience now.
I chose Tikka Masala and I think it’s very enjoyable. Good amount of spiciness and tang, and good eating experience overall.

Only thing I noticed is a rather chalky feel on the palate and tongue after eating. Is this just me, just the tikka masala version, or is it common with all the pots?

Don’t worry, already solved.

Anyway, after eating the Cajun Pot, I have been thinking about these hot meals (Jimmy Joy or Huel). One of my main issues is the form of the carbohydrates. I have tried the three Plenny pots and the first three Hot&Savory Huel bags, and hands down, the best hot meals were Cajun and Korma Plenny pots. This is probably due to pasta and rice being used as a base for CH. The remaining meals can be tasty (or not), but they have a consistency of a paste. This is why I really don’t like Tikka Masala plenny pot. I am sure there are some challenges of using noodles in these hot meals, but I believe it would be a huge advantage in comparison with other brands like Huel, since it is easier to include pasta in a pot. And of course, Vita Ramen probably still wont ship to EU for some time.

Hi @mistoph! To avoid the powdery sensation, I suggest you to mix very well and leave the pot resting for 10 more minutes. That should solve the issue. Let us know if it worked for you :slight_smile:

Indeed, to have some texture in the pot gives it a bonus point! The traditional noodles are such a nice and comforting meal, and having them nutritionally complete would make them awesome! Thanks for your feedback :drooling_face: :star_struck:

Mine were also not intact :frowning:

Three out of the six were breached

Yeah, I again had one opened.

If this is a continuous problem for several people, they should consider making the lid glue stronger and/or including padding in the box so they dont move around violently enough to break open.

Been ordering them non-stop and this never happened to me. Is your delivery service playing streetball with the boxes? :astonished:

That’s a good advice, one of my first ones wasn’t thoroughly mixed as well cause I stirred like once and then let it rest. But if you stirr it well and let it rest for a couple of minutes it becomes a very tasty paste. :joy:

Even if they are, there should be enough padding in the box so this doesn’t happen.

You can never rely on delivery services being gentle :slight_smile:
