    I just wunderd if you could eat stuff out of the tin without heating it e.g soup, beans,spagetti, ricepudding. Im going camping and don't want the hassle of having to heat stuff up, and any suggestions on cheap food good for camping is welcome

    Yeah they're all fine without being heated up. Problem is they don't taste as good!

    Yeah, there's the obvious tinned fruit which doesn't need heating up to taste good.
    I know friends who eat Baked-Beans, sans heating, not to my taste really.

    Yep, lots of people do this when camping if they don't have access to a heat source One thing I would say though, is that if you're not staying in the same place (i.e. you'll probably be walking a bit), then tins are probably not the best idea as they can be a little heavy; packets of dried food etc. might be better, or at least a mix of the two.

    Thing I eat from the can without being heated up:

    Beans
    Spaghetti
    Rice Pudding
    Vegetable curry
    Cheese Ravioli (niiiice)
    Fruit
    Custard

    I've heard you can also get a 'breakfast in a tin' deal

    Yes generally, almost all food in a can is precooked or processed so it is edible raw.

    Hot dog sausages skewered on a stick over a roaring fire are loverly. Stick in some beans and you're sorted.
