British 24 hour Ration - Menu H7

Postby Sputmilk » Thu Sep 28, 2017 12:16 am

Got this in one of BlackDogBob's grab bags. My first ever ration. Figured I would try my hand at a review. I would do a video, but I suppose I'm a bit shy.

(couldn't fit the contents into one pic, sorry)

Started off with the Museli, one of the coffee packs, and the tutti fruity drink powder. The Museli itself was really bland, though the fruit really did a great job of adding some flavor - I'm glad it was in there. I found it to be very filling. Pretty good way to start the day. Drink powder was different for sure, hard to compare that flavor to anything I can think of at the moment, but it was pleasant.

For lunch I had the potato & leek soup, the cereal bar, an orange energy drink, and some of the puree. The soup was REALLY good. I wasn't sure what to expect at first but once I could smell it I knew it would be tasty. It had more of a subtle taste, most of the flavor coming from the leeks. Very nice. The orange drink was great, the flavor was also subtle. The cereal bar was almost too sweet, I almost didn't finish it because it was so overpowering, almost a sour candy type of taste. I wasn't expecting that. The puree was pleasant. Nothing special, but a good dessert.

Shortly after I decided to eat the Chicken Panang and Rice packets. The rice was very dry when I opened it so I decided to mix the two. This was VERY filling. Very good taste. I've never had panang before, just seems to be a sort of curry. Lightly spicy, very hearty. I found myself wanting more after eating this.

Haven't had a chance to eat the turnover or try the orange hot chocolate yet - will update this when I do.

Next on the list is a 24 hour Lithuanian Combat ration Menu #3, and a French RCIR down the road when it arrives

Hey Sputmilk!

Really enjoyed reading your review! It was very informative, and the shots you took are amazing.

I love the fact that we both have managed to review a British 24 hour ORP today, I have to say the H7 looks like a fantastic ration.

Can't wait for the rest of your review!

Really nice review, great shots too!

Funny you say you're too shy for videos, because I am super shy in real life, but on here everyone is so welcoming you'll feel confident in no time! I'm too scared to do written reviews because I'm terrible with the English language, so I'm always afraid someone will make fun of my write up.

Sputmilk: Great review man!

And nighthawk: I doubt anybody will make fun of you, the way I learned to start making videos, and doing them to a at least decent standard, was by practicing with write ups.

Hi Nighthawk,

I would doubt if anyone on the forum would question your knowledge of the English language, we are a world wide bunch on here enjoying ourselves in our hobby.
