In that particular review, I find it difficult to differentiate where the crude attempt at comedy stops, and the serious ration review starts. :roll:

I've got a Menu 2, which I haven't opened yet.
Saving for a rainy day. 8)

ROEK = Rantsoen Onder Extreme Koude (Dutch)

Freeze-dried ration, used in very cold conditions,
where a high number of calories need to be consumed.
