Snacks Snacks Snacks, i love Snacks and they are easy to eat on the move.

Chocolate Sports Bar:
This was better than i was expecting,The bar is hard somewhat sweet and has little crunchy pieces(puffed rice?) but it also had an interesting property.
If chewed quickly, it crumbles to many small pieces. If chewed slowly it became almost toffee/taffy like but less sticky

chew slowly
Cheddar Cheese Pretzels:
Some broken but they tasted fine

These are called "combos" locally (pizzeria pretzel is the best flavor)
Drinks:
The Orange base was very good, same as the last menu i reviewed so no pics of that.
The Cocoa beverage powder mixed up ok, some pieces refused to melt, but the taste was fine.

I took the advice of mreheater72 and use 1/2 of the water recommended for both of these dishes

By now i had long finished the snacks, so here are the main meals
124.JPG
Less water for the eggs worked out well.
Tasted Very Good, lots of fresh peppers and ham. fully re-hydrated with out an issue, although cheese is lacking in my opinion.
126.JPG
The Farina came out well, i cant quite describe the texture, thick almost enough to form a patty, smooth but slightly gritty texture, sweet maple taste, id say using less water is good
125.JPG
cookie dough like
123.JPG
And of course an Accessory Pack
120.JPG
Again a very good MCW, i haven't found many flaws in these meals, all the items are pleasing and compliment each other well

More to follow

These look like the BEST breakfast rations available in the US range, apart from group feeding units.

I love scrambled egg and bacon. So they would be my dream brekkie rations. :D

Outstanding reviews man 8)
