JSDF Type 1 Questions

As seen in the above pictures is the type I menu 1 containing Kan Pan, Orange Spread, Konpeito Candy, and Vienna Sausage.

However shown here

The items are also very much commercially available.

My question is, what is in the Vienna Sausage? Japan being a nation of mostly seafood would lead me to believe that it is some kind of fish sausage? Or is it similar to the sausage in the WSD (Woman Self Defense) with a mixture of meats including horse meat?

Also, does the orange spread also contain honey? I was talking to a Japanese fellow on Skype and he called it honey.

Because of the texture fish isn't really suitable for making sausage..
And vienna is Wien = the capital of Austria, so it isn't native food in japan.

It's like hotdogs, more kinds of meat are suitable to make them.. most are made of pig and chicken, but you can make them with all kinds of meat..

Original Wiener Würstchen (the German/Austrian name) are made from 100% pig meat in natural intestine..
But in the modern days, a lot of non-animal sausage skins are made.. so I'm guessing these are simply normal pork sausages.. (If they were native they wouldn't be called vienna sausage :wink: )
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.

at 2:00 he talks about the type 1 menu 1 ration and I can distinctively hear "orange spread"

And on laughing_man's site he also lists it as orange spread.

They got hooked on the vienna sausages,a.ka."the Five fingers of death" :lol: ,after the american occupation of WWII.
The same thing happened to the hawaiians with the SPAM ,which they like so much. :mrgreen:

I have read about the JSDF rations and that little tube is honey.... :D
Peace!

Not honey but an orange spread is contained in the formal ration of JSDF.
It is syrup containing the fruit juice of the orange of a kind called Mikan.
On the other hand, honey is in the picture of the commercial item which fdsman linked.
It is said that it is "having substituted honey for it since the orange spread's was not marketed" according to explanation of the page.

Horsemeat is not contained in this Vienna sausage.
It mixes beef, pork, and chicken and is filling them in the intestines of the sheep.

Hmm, a tube of 'Surimi' !
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surimi
In Asian cultures, surimi is eaten as a food in its own right and seldom used to imitate other foods. In Japan fish cakes (kamaboko) and fish sausages, as well as other extruded fish products, are commonly sold as cured surimi.

Interesting, from what I have read on http://www.lonesentry.com/articles/japa ... index.html Some things have not really changed from the Japanese Rations of yesteryear.
