Reviews (any views expressed are solely those of the reviewer)
As good as the last one I had
I recently came back from army cadet camp, during my time there (especially during fieldcraft) we lived on these things. To my surprise most of them tasted really good. So when I was planning my camping trip this week I instantly knew what food to bring because the ration packs are so simple and taste great too. Today I took one out with me while searching for a good spot for my trip and it lived up to my expectations. I will definitely be buying more from this site because they are hard to acquire anywhere else.
Pros: Lots of different menus , Lots of food variety , Tasty , Can eat cold, Filling
Cons: Lots of rubbish and/or packaging, Fairly large , Fairly expensive
Would recommend: Yes

Pros: Compact, Easy to use, Tasty
Cons: none
Would recommend: Yes

Cant get enough of these
I first tried these when i was 13, and loved them since then i have them all the time due to me being in the British army i love all the rations in the box especially the treacle pudding, the biscuits are a bit dry but when you have them them with your hot chocolate they go down a treat . Although they changed the packaging on the chocolate bars they still taste the same lol. the only thing I will moan about is the chewy as it is always soggy but after a couple of hours in the field you don't mind lol. that's all I can say about the ration packs and they are unreal
Pros: none
Cons: none
Would recommend: Yes

Hit and miss
It seems it's a bit of pot luck what you get with these rat packs as there are various menus available at different times. I generally enjoy the main meals, and as another reviewer said you can just boil in the bag and eat straight from the pouch, so there's no messing about. Some of the biscuits are OK, some of them not. But if you're out in the wild and you're tired and starving hungry then these rations will taste fantastic!
Pros: Compact supplies, Main meals tasty
Cons: Some biscuits not good, Never sure what menu will get
Would recommend: Yes

Very high quality
First and foremost, a high quality hydrated 24 hour ration pack, generally considered one of the best in the world in terms of taste and enjoyment (definitely better than the USA's equivalent). With regards to energy, they are top-notch too, with large amounts of megajoules, in the form of both soluble and non-soluble carbohydrates, as well as small amounts of fat - minerals, etc, also in balanced amounts. The Biscuit Browns do as intended; clog your system, and prevent the need for squatting when “in the field” (although usually regarded the least enjoyable aspect, I personally feel they are adequately edible, considering they need to be dry and fiber-ous to serve their purpose. The chewing gum is really useful to quench thirst if low on water (although it is almost always advisable to drink more than you think you need) and pass time, the matches are high-quality weatherproof and the tissues are useful for when you've not been eating the Biscuit Browns! The boiled sweets are also very useful for a nice glucose burst of energy, and sweet tasting self-motivation - or to bribe others! Not forgetting all the other things (chocolate bar, brew kit, hot chocolate, oat biscuit, etc) that I have neglected to comment on, all high quality (the oat biscuit is very sweet). Note: Many people seem to forget; just boil in the bag! And eat out of the bag too: don't mess with cleaning cooking equipment and plates! Just put bag in water, boil, peel open, eat, clean fork, clean burner residue, store rubbish.
Pros: Boiled Sweets, hot drinks, etc.., “System Clogging” Buscuit Br, Both “burst” energy & slow-b, High energy, 17.1 MJ 4,061 Kcal, Best in the world main meals
Cons: May be too large to pack it all, Not enough chocolate, Buscuit Browns unpopular as dry, Old-style energy drink unpopular, Not enough “Pros” in this fo

Didn't live up to the main meal
I really enjoyed the main meals and the pudding but on the other hand i thought the biscuits was very dry even with the paste and the flavour of the paste didn\'t compliment the meal.
Pros: And the chocolate was nice, Enjoyed the sweets, The pudding was nice, Main meal was delicious
Cons: Biscuits was too dry , Paste was horrible, Needed more chocolate and sweets
Would recommend: Yes
