Re: Strange K Ration

I'll bet its a reproduction for re-enactors to eat while playing war, whoops I mean re-enacting :wink: . The original dextrose tablets are square right? The modern equivalent are the round Survival Tabs, or Horlicks Malties candies. The rest of the items look like modern equivalents for the original...

Are Russian rations ok to eat?

I've seen various Russian rations on Amazon listed as being fulfilled by Amazon. Does that mean they have been approved for import to they U.S.? What do you guys think about the safety of these rations?

Re: Survival Ration Packet GP 2013

A great find! I'm a fan of those rations. It looks like they wanted to have something that met the original specs for the ration or close to it. I have had some of the old ones that had a mint bar that was really just a solid bar of certs candy. It was alot of minty candy to eat in one sitting and d...

Re: Looking for hardtack sources

It seems like Bents is the only bakery producing hardtack. I think that most civil war re-enactors or other living history types make their own. Jas Townsend and Son is also another good source for period info and food. Search youtube for: Ship's Bisket - Hard Tack: 18th Century Breads, Part 1. S2E1...

Re: Tube Foods

If you are looking for civilian tube food, Nestle makes sweetened condensed milk in tubes but wont sell in the U.S.. They seem to be a Southeast Asia, or European thing. Search Amazon for condensed milk tube. Sometimes a Japanese brand shows up on Amazon. Google image search condensed milk tubes and...
