2014 UK 24hr ORP, Menu #11- Part 1: Opening

Post by BTemple » Tue Oct 25, 2016 2:31 pm

Got this UK 24hr ORP from a great ration reviewer from Scotland who proudly served his country in Iraq! You can see him on YouTube as SCOTSMAN 1984.
He sent me the actual ration itself as well as some older UK ration items and also a bunch of local Scottish food from around his area.

This UK 24hr ORP is from 2014 and is Menu #11.

First up we have the big "Brew Kit", which contains a rather large spork, alcohol-free wipes, 2 tea, 2 coffee, 4 sugar and 4 creamer. Also 3 different types of gum, matches and water purification tablets.

Next up we have the vast array of snacks and drinks and whatnot. There certainly seems to be a good variety of drinks here. I assume the "Viperactive" tablet is some sort of vitamin/dextrose tablet.... we shall see. All drinks aside from the vitamin tablet are actually German in origin..... Das ist sehr gut? Ja oder nein? Haha

For the snacks it must be said there is good variety as well. Squidge is similar to Nutella I would assume. The biscuits had a hole in the package so they will no doubt have the consistency of cardboard. Quite the international collection too.... peanuts from Thailand, peanut butter from the US, cashews from Spain, apricot jam from France, cereal bar from Denmark, Squige from Germany. The UK must like to source a lot of its items from NATO allies. Not 100% sure how I'll share all these out for the 3 meals.

Can't forget about the lovely little glass bottle of original red Tobasco sauce!

Lastly we have the main entrees, as well as the main dessert/sides, for lack of a better word. It all certainly seems like it should be good. Muesli will no doubt be the main breakfast entree. Thinking about perhaps having soup and tuna for dinner and then goulash, rice and fruit cocktail for supper. We shall see.

Have a great one everybody, thanks for stopping by!

Yeah I've never seen one before in any ORP review online. It's a UK product as well, oddly enough.
