That looks neat. I'm surprised to see Jack Link''s food in an Australian ration. Nice unboxing.
Good luck and may your rations stay unspoiled!

Their chocolate bars are really good! I wonder if the fruit cake is like the MRE nut cake...

Great ration man! But why pair mashed potatos with beef and beans in dinner isn't chicken in lunch better pair for it?

I was thinking of a recipe. Sheperds pie. Its ground meat and veggies in sauce, covered in mashed potatoes and baked. To me the chicken n veg stands alone better, while the beef needs a little boost. ;)
