And after a long time we have Irish MRE that’s pretty hard to find A colleague managed to get two of them so I got one There wasn’t much chance to see it on the internet, the older Irish rations where in boxes similar to British Ration packs used today are in this clear bags On the top it’s simple zip lock and a sticker that says it’s DF Ireland’s 24hr ration pack You can see their idea what you should have for each meal and dessert On the bottom you have company information along with their address This is actually a sticker that’s on the bag, but inside of it you have this information sheet you can take out So the V letter is for vegetarian, not a roman number 5 Jelly beans Biscuits browns Sesame bar, three bars that always melts in one that you can’t bite in Apple, kiwi, maracuja fruit explosion pouch (fruit purree) Tutty-Frutty (energy drink flavor) drink powder for 0,5 liters of drink Bag with peanuts, almonds, cashews Hot chocolate drink regular taste, you can also get the versions with orange (Jaffa Cakes) or menthol (After Eight chocolate) Refreshing strawberry drink powder Raspberry drink power, also for 0.5 liters of water Tropical mix flavored drink powder, also for 0.5 liters of water You get these four drinks, four different flavors packed in three different bag styles The newer packs and older packs if I’m not mistaken The fifth drink is made with the hot chocolate drink powder So you have enough number of drinks of all kinds Accessory bag is almost the size of ration bag itself Four whiteners for tea or coffee Water purification tablets, 6 pieces Each tab is for disinfection of 1 liter of water Three packs of chewing gums Four packs of sugar Matches that you can light in windy and wet conditions Plastic spoon Two anti bacterial wet wipe This is everything you get in Irish MRE There is no point opening everything since most of it you could already see in Crombat’s review of British ORP’s Let’s prepare refreshing strawberry drink, it’s mixed with sugar and there’s lot’s of powder in this bag Now lets try first meal that in this case is Vegetable Curry with rice It looks like this, you can see there’s lot’s of oil in this There’s corn chickpeas, green beans, carrots, brown rice… let’s try it to see if it’s any good Not bad, strong flavor meal. You can taste curry and vegetables.Vegetables are a bit mushy… It’s really nice meal, but it’s missing something and that something could be the meat All in all not bad, but it would be awesome with tabasco sauce (you get one small bottle in this ration) Moroccan style bean stew is next Also lot’s of oils But in this case the sauce is tomato sauce and it’s spicey – hot So it’s different from the first meal with curry and with mild taste Very nice tasting meal, reminds me of some american MRE meal mixed with tabasco sauce I must say these are very strange meals for Irish people, but we all change with time, Ireland also Let’s try strawberry drink Very light taste of strawberry, not even sweet as it should be Like those very cheap fruit syrup you dilute with water, but in this case you where in communist mood so you used very little of it So the drink is a disappointment I give it 2 of 10 The rest of the items in this rations where shown in our previous reviews so I will not repeat it to keep this video shorter Thanks for watching, please click like and subscribe.
