Spanish Rations Review

Post by sw342pd » Tue Jan 31, 2012 6:10 pm

Hi at all;
today I got a whole bunch of spanish rations from luis - and couldtn`t wait to open some! :lol:
I checked this Forum and couldn`t really find a review - is anyone here interested in some pictures and taste comments?? :roll:
If yes, so let me know, than I`ll do some homework and try to load it here! :oops:

greets,

P1312115 (Kopie).JPG
Nice view!
P1312118 (Kopie).JPG
fresh opened Ration 11/2012 No A4
P1312116 (Kopie).JPG
lot of stuff... Menue A4
P1312121 (Kopie).JPG
Opened cans - Sardines in veg. Oil, Baked Beans witch Chorizo, Apricot Creame - Menue A4 - the Sardines are hughe and taste very good! As an tomatolover, I would like it with picante sauce! The Apricot cream looks like marmelade, but taste not very sweet as I expected - but with the cookies from the Breakfast Menue (see later review) theire very delicious!
P1312120 (Kopie).JPG
Chicken and Pasta Instant soup, right out of the Bag - Menue A4
P1312123 (Kopie).JPG
Chicken and Pasta Instant soup, ready for taste - Menue A4 - it taste very strong and salty, so I used to give it more water later!
:x
P1312122 (Kopie).JPG
Baked Beans with Chorizo - very small piece of chorizo sausage, a whole lot of beans and a very big piece of fat (center of pic) - so this meal is for hard work outside, because it´s so heavy - and for my gusto it needs tomato sauce! Taste is not too bad, but needs some pepper and tomato!
So all in all, my first experiences with spanish rations are good. They`re very complete with all that stuff, a stove in every!!! :shock: Menue!
So for an whole day you got 3 solid fuel stoves, every meal has an dental hygiene chewing gum in it, hand desinfection gel, matches, Energetic tablets (very nice, couldnt remember but think they taste a little bit like german orange "Notration"), Water purification tablets, Hydrating tablets (very salty for isotonic regeneration), 1gr. Vitamin C tablet, Paper (shit Ticket in a water resist foil) and Breakfast Menue offers a toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste!

Hope this review is something "informatic" for you - its my first review I ever done - so be pleasant with me and sorry for my english!

Good time,
sw342pd

Now that I see the last pictures with so many rations, it seems to me that I have done something illegal :D :D :D

Enjoy it.

Very nice. How many different menus are there? What are all the things that aren't main components?

I don`t know exactly how many mres are in this picture but basically there are five breakfast, five meals and five dinners. There are (but I don`t know how many) some meals for muslim soldiers which are the same but without pork.

Lars, your box arrived just one hour ago. It`s amazing!!! thanks a lot

All the best, people.

Due to a limitation of attachements here is the rest of my review (here I have the Breakfast Menue):
P1312125 (Kopie).JPG
Breakfast Menue No. 1
P1312126 (Kopie).JPG
Very delicious milk chocolate bar!
P1312127 (Kopie).JPG
believe me, why the fu... they don´t put more of this good chocolate in there?
P1312130 (Kopie).JPG
Sweet biscuits - very tasty - my wife - always wondering about my affinity for military rations and everytime I offer her some rationfood saying No Thanks - ate nearly the whole packet, telling me, that she´s reminded to some bisciuts she ate as an child! :-) I like them with the apricot spread from the main meal box!
P1312131 (Kopie).JPG
The opened bag of cereal flakes with fruit and honey - very likely - I love cereals! Ate them with some low fat milk! Great taste!
P1312132 (Kopie).JPG
Cereals in a bowl!
P1312133 (Kopie).JPG
Sweet cocoa powder - as instructed I made it with milk - cold, not warm, so the powder needs to stir a lot for make it right to drink - maybe its better with warm milk!
So, I just wonder, that there is no tea or coffee in the box, because they add a tube of sweetneed condensed milk (also tasty) to the menue! I like that, but meanwhile drinking no sweetened coffe - but in the field.... :roll:
