My best friends dad used to bring these home all the time and give them to us to snack on. They were actually really freakin tasty; the only downside is if you eat more than like one a day you'll be backed up so far you not even sugar free gummy bears can help you.

I've eaten dozens of Norwegian ration packs. It looks a lot like the UK one. Chicken curry is one of the main dishes and in my opinion the only edible one.

Fun fact: Cum is Latin for "with".
As in, if some graduated Cum Laude, they graduated "with honors."

FUN FACT
This is the spoon/can opener they are talking about. It has been used in Aus Rat Packs for decades.
Australian troops have dubbed it the FRED.

Well technically it's a Field Ration Eating Device.

But you are 100% correct if you go by what it's most commonly referred to by the soldiers.

Also, the US has (or had) something similar called the P-38, but It didn't have the spoon part

yeah the FRED barely has the spoon part either. its incapable of actually holding any liquid if you have even the slightest shiver or shake.

I was googling it earlier after remembering the FRED.

On one forum I read about some unlucky guy who strung it in with his dogtags during basic training and fell flat on his chest with is sticking in to his sternum. He lived, but is instructor threw up after having to pull it out of the dude's chest
