Now the things I tried.

First:The biscuits
Image
Image
Taste good.
They have an oat flavour.
I think this biscuits are being used in the british rations too(?).

Second: The triacle(sirop)
I wanted to try it but unfortunately it was spoiled.

Image

Then I tried the tomato soup.
Image
Image
It didn´t had a very strong flavour, but I think that´s because of his age.
But it wasn´t bad.

Next is the cocoa.
Image
Image
First I was suprised that so much powder is only for one cup.
But it was right and it tasted very good, one of the best cocoas that I ever had in rations(only the french one is better in my opinion).

Now it was chocolate time.
Image
Image
It was ok.
It even had not much flavour too.
And again I think it´s because of the age.
But it wasn´t very bitter.

And the last thing was the beef tea(boullion).
Image
(Sorry, no pic of the beef tea ready to drink.)
It was very salty.
It wasn´t good and it wasn´t bad at all.

This was the review of the dutch army ration.
Greetings from hot Germany

Hi,
thanks for the review. I confirm the Brown biscuits are the same as the British 24h packs.

Hello Brian,

Thank's for sharing.
In addition I wanted to let you know that you have the latest version.
A main indicator is the chocolatebar wrapper: it's made of 'plastic'.
The previous version had a paper wrapper.
I'll see if I can dig up the exact date they came out. I beleve it was 2011.

grtz, Nawt.
