I wonder were a soldier puts the pate on?
There were no crackers or stuff like that.

I tried the soup and the meatballs.
First the soup:

It was really good!
I also liked the "Croutons" in the soup.
Then the meatballs with peas:

That was not so good! :?
It tasted like the can.
I don´t really liked it.

This was the review of the spanish army ration.
Greetings

If canned food taste "metallic", the acid from the food reacted with the cans inside surface.
It seems 2012 is too long for a Spanish 2008 expired can. :?
