Not calling anyone a liar, but it is very common in militaria collecting circles to claim that something was recently "found in a barn in Normandy" to sex up a sales post for deep-pocketed American buyers.
Agreed! This one would 100% need a hands on. No way to tell from pics.

Your lucky the brownie was good! Usually those are bad because of the nuts, you can tell if they are bad as it will make your tongue tingle.

@Strummer7 please do save one of these for steve1989, if you are not aware steve1989 is a great guy who documents historical rations and posts the videos to Youtube! Please check out his videos. This ration really needs to be documented!

They would usually only go for the protein instead (chicken breast). I also did this for a while when in the f...
