What Does a 1899-1902 British Field Ration Taste Like?

This old MRE can't possibly be healthy to eat.

Get ready to watch someone actually open and consume a 1899-1902 British field ration.

YouTuber Steve1989MREinfo does the unthinkable in the video below:

It's been many years since this field ration was issued to troops for meals. What can possibly be left of this sealed, old-school MRE from way back in the day?

MRE expert and YouTube sensation Steve1989MREinfo is a brave man. Not only is he willing to open this really old throwback, but actually tastes it, too. What he finds is a foul-tasting meal.

While many might complain about the taste of modern MRE meals, they haven't tried this one. We'll leave it to Steve1989MREinfo to report that.
