British rations review

Post by rationtin440 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 9:18 pm

I'm looking to find the link to a review of British 24hr rations that was posted quite awhile ago. It was a man who was eating them over a couple days and he reviewed the chocolate pudding with chocolate sauce, treacle pudding, and other stuff and was making comments about how British food was supposed to taste. He was imagining himself as a British soldier out on the lines, made some funny comments about rations. For some reason I can't find link, any help appreciated, thanks!

I remember the one you mean, it was quite funny.

This is a clear runthrough of contents. The reviewer doesnt understand the use of the range card on the ration box side, so he loses points there in my eyes. "Wimpy" is a burger chain in the UK, dating from the 50s. many outlets are still open. It is NOT like McDonalds :lol:

This is a contents review of the slighter newer version with updated mains. The guy is a serving squaddie, and has a West country accent. It may take our US and continental mates a while to get their ears round what he is saying :)

Thanks guys! Actually I did not make it clear now that I look back on my posting-----the review was not a video but was a link in a posting here at the forums. No video on youtube that I recall, but pictures of the food. My apologies for confusion.

RT there was a vid posted on youtube :?: a year or more back with this guy in his flat, pretending to be at some unspecified "front". It was well made, and quite funny. Im still trying to hunt it down. He managed to review the items too, amongst his arseing around :)

I was thinking you were referring to that? It was a UK vid.
