Oh man, at least I have the one tan sachet!

I saw that you'd been doing a bit of a series on ORPs recently, Simon, I'll have to watch it!

For sure, him and his brother are great! The ORP series was a good one; you should for sure give it a watch!

Guys, you were right, the silver beverage powders are blooming terrible!

The tropical one has this overbearing bittersweetness with a chemical tang to it, and although it had strong pineapple and mango flavours going on it just wasn't that good. Still drank it though, hydration is important.

Think I'll have the tan sacheted orange next, with dinner.

Ya, we all gotta go through that terrible thing, but like I said the rest of it should be pretty good.

The tan sachet of Raspberry beverage powder from the ORP's is my absolute favourite beverage mix from ANY ration I have had thus far, I hope you can find one sometime.

I haven't been able to get my hands on an ORP yet. I've seen and heard great things about them. Hope you enjoy yours!


I will let you know for sure how that one turns out, Nighthawk, though my money is on it being not dissimilar to flat cola.

The website I got my ORP from sells them for £9.99, but with international shipping at around £15, I can see why they don't end up Stateside as often!

Funny thing, got home from work today and had a package waiting for me, large mystery box from BlackDogBob, and guess what was inside? Looks like I get to try the cola myself. 8)

Well, what a fun little coincidence! I still haven't tried mine yet, we can compare notes!

The British ration packs are top-notch, for sure. I've had the cola beverage a few times now, and I found it essentially tasted like semi-sweet, flat cola. It was strange the first time, but it kind of grew on me the second time.

They're well-stocked rations, with a solid reputation. Many people feel the British beverages are among the best found in ration packs.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts after trying it.

My favorite yumminess is the Mango Cake, Love. Hard to pinpoint which rat-pack that Yummy Mango Cake will be in. All 75 Grams of that yummy cake. I like to eat it. :P

ORP's are one of my favorites. Drinks are amazing beside Slazinger branded ones that are so-so.

Cola drinks is like liquid Haribo cola gummy candy.
