In Praise of Fray Bentos

I have at times mused about a bike tour up the Uruguay River, passing through Fray Bentos, where, I imagined, there would be nothing but meat pies to eat.

Sound idyllic.
This rather frivolous thought of mine did start from a real event. I was on a work trip to Buenos Aires (yes, they were good times at that company) and on a day off I took the ferry across the River Plate to Uruguay, and met two American guys with their bikes who were riding north through Uruguay. I was quite envious.
I don't know if Fray Bentos was actually on their itinerary, but if the eponymous company sells their metal-clad pies in North America then I expect they were tempted.

Yep, whenever we go away it's Fray Bentos pies, Princess tinned steak, chicken supreme in white sauce in a tin, mandarin segments / condensed milk......
Great caravan meal - Fray Bentos pie, tinned spuds & tinned peas and carrots.*
