lol never thought of it that way...damn those bastards have been takin advantage of my strict preferences.I think that's the idea. It's no good if the rations are too tasty and being consumed too quickly.
well where i serve we do have m&m or cookies as part of the ration. i just put the ration part in my tac vest and keep the yummy part in my pocket lol. when you are out there diggin trenches in the middle of nowhere this could be the only comfort.
