1977 EPa

Today was x-mas similar to me :D

I got a 1977 EPa without any damage and complete:

instead of two, this early one´s contained just one bag of "tank sheet crackers", but a bigger one. Unfortunatly the (vakuum) package got a hole and air went in.

Entrees:
Groundmeat "risotto" (italien style) and chicken w/ mushrooms and noodles
Pate:
Liver pate and cheese spread

Jam, beverages, chewing gum, chocolate and margarine in a tube

Image
Manufactured in 1977


Everything seems still edible...

I am kicking up an old topic, but I still have some early 1990s tot late 90s EPA parts

Gemüsepfanne mit tofu - 1998 and 2001
2 hamburger mit tomatensoße
Cevapcicci 1990 (might be 1996.. little damage there.. scraped off)
Erbseneintopf 1991
Gulasch aus rind und schweinefleisch 1990

I will test them this week (It's the summerbreak from school ánd work.. how nice is that?)
(So it isn't that bad when the flitzkackedemon gets after me.. But I do not think it will be Spraypoo heaven - the cans are not swollen or something like that, so I think it's still edible.. )

And.. last but not least.. I will have the oldest ration checked at the labratory tommorow (results next week) to see if it's still LEGAL to sell it (between inedible and acceptable amounts of micro organisms is a large difference.. to many bacteria won't actually make you sick.. you need a LOT more bacteria to make you sick.. but I'll have it checked with a old (girl)friend that works at the hospital labratory..) I actually think it would be very interesting to know..

And because I think it's funny that you did not partly die from heavy diarrhea :mrgreen:
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.
