Gents I posted pictures of opened beef patty and chicken soup in first post. I don't eat chicken so I passed that along, for instant soup it seems it's really good (2dcl/7oz). Canned beef was great, very soft meat that you can slice with fork, nice smell.

I don't have pictures of dried pineapple and dried papaya - I'm a big fan of dry fruit and I love this small packages that you can fold and keep in your pocket while hiking. Also I don't have a picture od chocolate but it's standard dark army chocolate, a bit bitter and not so sweet.

Thanks for sharing the first Croatian ration I've ever seen the contents of :mrgreen: It looks like it has a substantial weight to it - several kg?

That beef luncheon meat looks a lot like the SPAM we have here in the States, which is made out of pork. Do the ingredients say its all beef, or does it have some pork in it as well?

Hi mate I believe it's all beef because the name itself is "Beef spam". And this company makes more of spam meat like this form pork, chicken or mixed meat. In my last ration type 6 I had Vikend Doručak that's translated in Weekend Breakfast so no mention of the type of the meat in the name but it's mixed pork and beef meat.
