Heater Meals: Reviews from Professional Truck Drivers

Many truck stop travel stores sell foodstuffs, some of which sell "Heater Meals" or "HeaterMeals".

Seeking reviews from a wide range of truckersThe products use "TRUETECH Self-Heating Technology" (chemically generated heat) to raise the temperature of an 8 ounce food pouch at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit without a flame or electricity.

This preparation method would certainly allow professional truck drivers who do not have other meal preparation methods -- such as 12-volt powered appliances or household appliances powered via inverter -- to eat hot meals on the road.

We are seeking reviews from professional truck drivers about these meals.

The last time we checked, most (if not all) of these products we have seen for sale at truck stops were priced at $5.99 each.

They can be less expensive than some truck stop buffets (lunch and dinner, specifically).
