Armenian 24h ration menu 1 (2015)

Post by Delicious » Tue Dec 27, 2016 12:13 pm

I had a lot of luck to get this ration - I haven't seen this before on the internet.
This ration is packed in a cardboard box - the size is like German EPA. The content remains Kazakh or Ukrainian ration, but with even less items.
Something unusual about it is that it contains leaf tea (not instant, not in a teabag), so you have to spit a lot during the meal ;).
I can't read Armenian, the Google translator is also helpless, but I got a hint from the seller in Polish. If somebody is able to read it you are welcome to comment, especially about the cans.

the whole content (plus napkins, which I found later at the bottom of the box)

- pork with green peas
- buckwheat with beef
- pickled beef
- black leaf tea
- 3 sugars (30g each)
- salt, pepper
- 3 packs of crackers
- 3 spoons
- 3 fuel tablets

For the first meal I chose a random can (which was pork with green peas), crackers (which are armeiskie galety - the same as in Russian ration) and the tea

The tea is quite good, crackers are neutral - not salty, not sweet. The can is really tasty - no need for spicing, meat is not processed. It was good cold as well as warm. Well, there was a gift from Armenia inside - a black stone (about half an inch). I was lucky not to eat quickly... :)

The second can I ate warm - buckwheat with beef - also tasty, little greasy. No stones inside ;).

The last can could be eaten cold - soft chunks of meat, but it is also good warm. This can was bigger than the others, really good.

one more picture of a can - I could really read only the weight :)

This ration is not allowed to be sold commercially (as many others), but... this is for real. I found information about Polish shop being sued for selling this ration couple of years ago.

Great review - thanks for sharing it with us. Just to clarify - was the stone a pit from something, or an actual rock? Always great to see something brand new on here :mrgreen:

actual rock, as far as I can remember from school - a piece of basalt :)

Harder than the famous Polish panzercrackers and hard to digest ;)

My apologies for the following:

It's nice when a ration can keep you so grounded.

Good thing it came with fuel tabs so it was not STONE cold.

Definitely a ROCK solid ration.

That's all the dad jokes for now. I promise.
