I've eaten a bunch of British rat-packs over past couple years, thanks to Foreignmre and other suppliers. I agree with Rahzmataz on these. Maybe good for last resort emergency food kit only. The British Army should coat their grenades with this stuff for extra fragmentation effect.

Morning chaps,

I had a sesame seed bar in an ORP packed 07 17 so they are still going.

Happened to have read this so was pre-warned so I got the unopened pack and hit it hard side-on with a brass paperweight :D

This split off one of the three and I then could snap it into 1 inch-ish bits and treat those like boiled sweets - no chewing. The hard
sugar melted in the mouth pretty quick and this left the sesame seeds which I happen to like the taste of so overall was happy with the experience 8)

Cheers,
Mack

I think they taste really nice but they are so stiicky and stuck together , I thought i was going to lose a tooth when i took a bite out of one , I think the M.o.d need to think about replacing it with something else

The same snack is commonly sold in American stores but they are much smaller, say 2 inches by 3 inches, and they aren't all stuck hard together. They are just honey syrup and sesame seed, which I noticed is a common snack quite a few countries. It's a very old traditional confection. Here they also come in a chocolate striped version. Yes, they all stick in the teeth. If too old, the oil in the sesame seeds can go rancid making for a very unpleasant taste.
