Many truck stop travel stores sell foodstuffs. Some sell "Heater Meals" or "HeaterMeals".
The 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.
The brand carries a variety of entrees. The ones we have found at truck stops are pictured at right.
We have also provided close-up views below.
|HeaterMeals: Zesty BBQ Sauce & Potatoes with Beef|
|HeaterMeals: Homestyle Chicken & Noodles in Gravy|
|HeaterMeals: Chicken Pasta Italiana|
|HeaterMeals: Green Pepper Steak with Rice|
Most (if not all) of these products we have seen for sale at truck stops are priced at $5.99 each. They can be less expensive than some truck stop buffets (lunch and dinner, specifically).
