    If you're down to the last ration and it's Salmon, use it as Bait for a Snare trap or Fishing Line.
    But the rest of the meal sides and Drinks are still great


    Like you mentioned the rest of the menus are great compared to the stuff from the 80's and 90's.

    I haven't tried anything since the 90's. I thought the goulash and the sausage and hashbrowns were pretty dammed tasty, the pepper sauce and crunchy type cereal were good too.
    There were stinkers back in the day. Cherry dessert, recalled turkey/chicken? a la king, and the inedible omelet.

    The “pain hamburger” is absolutey inedible in the current imp. Poutine is similarily complete garbage. Barely wanted to eat these and they were free

    Poutine is both the worst and most popular Ration at the same time.
    The Military has Introduced a Novelty meal. It says Poutine but its not.

    "To meet various member requirements, the vegetarian options are formulated to meet kosher and halal requirements as well. For the general population, there are tried-and-true comfort foods like shepherd’s pie and spaghetti with meatballs. Hamburger and smoked meat meals debuted in 2014. Some are more leading-edge, such as the most recent additions to be found in soldier backpacks in the spring of 2015: pulled pork and poutine."
    The article in Army GC goes on to say
    http://www.army-armee.forces.gc.ca/e...tions/i55aqriv

    She notes that some popular meals do not lend themselves well to this type of processing, so the team works to get as close as possible under the circumstances. In creating a poutine IMP, the team basically deconstructed the ingredients and adapted them to the technology.

    “We couldn’t make fries, so we have cooked potatoes with gravy, cheese and big chunks of cooked chicken to add some protein,” she said. “When we tested it in the field, they liked it very much.”
    Not everything is a hit, however. “We have had surprises when we thought a meal was very promising, but the people didn’t like it,” said Ms. Delaney.

    “Every second year, we go to brigades in Valcartier, Petawawa and Edmonton to test the new menus with about 60 people from each brigade,” she said. “They are the ones who will ultimately decide if they will go into the rations.”
