This WW2 Canadian Emergency Ration was carried by all soldiers in their packs as a last ditch effort means of food. Pretty much their iron ration of the era - similar to the D Ration or British Emergency Ration in it's purpose, but not 100% the same in it's component breakdown. Well.. pretty much it is except instead of all chocolate, this one also gives you some really dry hardtack as well. So we check out how to make things a little more interesting when all you have are two components.
Huge thanks to https://mremountain.com/ for sending in this ration. It allowed us to open a specimen in much better shape than my own which is a very swelled can. Guaranteed mine will have a total bloat fest on that chocolate. Bloom will make the chocolate expand and in these old tins you will notice a "give" of sorts... but then others without that when you shake them. This is a great way to judge condition without having to open the can.

And thank you everyone for watching & subscribing - hope
you enjoyed this one, as I certainly did making it!
