1943 US Army Field Ration K Dinner Unit Vintage MRE Review Meal Ready to Eat Taste TestCheck out this still surprisingly edible WW2 K Ration Dinner! Essentially the original U.S. MRE, the K Ration was designed as an Initial-assault ration - an organized box of food, cigarettes, coffee, etc that a soldier could depend on when field kitchens were not available. Many troops lost between 30-70 pounds during their tours due to not only the rigorous physical demands of WW2-combat, but also to the under-nourishing K Ration - where a full day's K Ration, if fully consumed, only provided approx 2,930 calories per day for a Breakfast, Dinner, and Supper Unit. This K Ration Dinner from early 1943 production (correction at end of video thru lot code ID on main can) was an incredible find - and an exclusive rare look into a true historical time capsule of a truly pioneering era in Military Rations. A little backstory on this video - it very well could have ended up never getting released (or having serious continuity issues) had I not saved a couple of each of those K-1 and K-2 biscuits for a Ration Reproduction Enthusiast. The biscuit eating scene where I turned the camera over ended up permanently corrupt on my computer, and I'd already wiped it from my chip..whoops! I hadn't realized it until 5 days later - had to re-shoot (and sadly consume half of each 1 K-1 and 1 K-2 leaving only 1 1/2 K-1's for the repro guy and 2 1/2 K-2's. No big deal - they have already found a good home for a fellow that is getting perfect measurements on the fully intact biscuits and he has a perfect replica formula to make the K-1's and currently working on a formula for the K-2's.) I decided to not re-shoot the cigarette scene because such a fine & rare experience should not be overly indulged. The other three are re hydrating in a humidor with a few others from previous rations. So if anyone is wondering, there ya go!

Making a Tiki Drink while WAY Too Hungover | How to DrinkThe Suffering Bastard has its roots in Cairo, served to allied troops in the 2nd World War on their way back to front. ********************************** This is the rare drink that has a definitive and easily researched history: it was invented in Cairo at the Shepherd Hotel by chemist turned bartender Joe Scialom during the Second World War. The bar at the Shepherd had become a sort of de facto officers club where guys waiting to cycle back to the front would cool their heels, and this concoction was a favorite hangover cure. There IS another version served by Trader Vic’s, but it bears little resemblance to this original version. Being fairly hungover myself this day, I felt it was a prime opportunity to try this one out, I did and it was fantastic. 4 oz. -or- 120 ml. Ginger Beer .5 oz. -or- 15 ml.
