The Goulash is very well know from the previous EPas (Typ II) and I´m happy they kept it. Nice cubes of potatoes and nice chunks of pork. New to me was the freezedried dessert what is a nice surprise to me. The only drawback to me is, to prepare it in the fields. I had an eggbeater to whisk it:

but still with this it didn´t dissolved at all. Now guess this in the fields with nothing but a spoon?

What´s about the soup pouch?

This was a Belgian soup with no date on it. Due to the pouch I guess it´s 5-10 years old.

Lets give it a try!

Add 250ml of boiling water

Does it have to look like this?! It didn´t look like a creamed soup but like "clotted" milk. The taste was "OK" but it smelled "odd" like "moist wood" so I didn´t eat it. :cry:

I thought the Typ 6 was 2012 and later, so at worst you had a 2012 (5 years old max) ration, right? That soup can't have been a lot older than that, or can it?
Or am I confused about the EPa dates again? :)

That chocolate mousse looks interesting as well!

Right, at the freezedried pouch you can read the production date 19.07.2012, so was the entree - just 5 years old.

The soup didn´t come from the EPa, it was from a Belgian one (if I remember right). The Belgian ones are almost the same as the French RCIR ones witch different labeling. The white, "plain" pouches are far more than "just" 5 years old.

Oh, I thought it was Belgian made but came from the EPa. Never mind then :)
