Amazing...a pre-WWI US Army Ration and this guy opens it, then eats it. 


The chocolate is apparently fairly good.

The only thing (apparently - I haven't seen all the eps) he got sick from was the Chinese (PRC, not ROC) MRE.  He also really likes the new Canadian IMP coffee.

He did taste test a 1863 piece of US Civil War hardtack. That was almost 4 years ago and he is still alive.
Steve - "That tastes like mothballs and old library books" - then he tries some more. "Soak it in water" he says, didn't help, "now it tastes like rubber, like biting down on an eraser" An interesting bit is him showing the fossilized hardtack at the start. Soak it in coffee? Sure, coffee fixes everything. Warning, don't be freaked out by Phil Collins staring at you.

I don't subscribe to forced acceptance. I'll make up my own mind. Diversity of thought and opinion is essential.
