  • [Music]
  • greetings my beautiful lovelies its
  • Emmie welcome back to another military
  • ration taste test today I'm gonna be
  • tasting this this is a 24-hour ration
  • and it comes from Turkey this was sent
  • to me by MRE Mountain so big thanks to
  • them for sending this to me apparently
  • this is a rare MRE and based on its
  • packaging it looks like it's a civilian
  • MRE so it's made by tada outdoor and
  • here's the back
  • so this says it's a menu one meal
  • ready-to-eat ration pack and it does
  • contain what looks to be a chemical kind
  • of flameless ration heater style heating
  • pack and it tells you the directions
  • right here in English so it's broken up
  • into three meals there is the breakfast
  • lunch and dinner or denser and it tells
  • you what should be for each meal so I'll
  • go ahead and break that down so it looks
  • like for breakfast do we have string
  • cheese we have some kind of black olive
  • so we have some tea some tortillas for
  • lunch we have physics pilaf and a
  • protein bar coffee some soup and for
  • dinner we have a chicken pilaf tomato
  • soup dried fruit and top chocolate
  • sounds good to me
  • so right off the bat the packaging looks
  • very sturdy it includes a grommet in the
  • corner which I appreciate so you could
  • kind of hook it from something if need
  • be if you had a carabiner of some sort
  • and the top part looks like it's gonna
  • become some kind of a ziploc not much to
  • tear with but thanks oh that didn't work
  • at all that well cut off the top here
  • I'm trying not to damage the zipper seal
  • so we could theoretically reuse this
  • okay got it open but it didn't open
  • cleanly sadly enough so I won't be able
  • to reseal it well so I said I liked that
  • gurram --it but now it's making it
  • difficult to get everything out so maybe
  • I don't like it
  • oh okay so we've got accessories pack
  • here some water purification tablets
  • this is a unified MRE heater
  • bag we have three ena food hot beverage
  • bags
  • this is buckwheat rice with chicken so
  • this I think is our dinner meal protein
  • bar decaffeinated coffee not sure if I
  • approve of it being decaf but glass
  • maybe for dinner
  • decaf will be better we have some dried
  • fruit some dried string cheese that's
  • for our breakfast tomato sauce pepper
  • paste I'm not sure what that is hakuna
  • we have another main this is the roast
  • beef and chickpea here is hot chocolate
  • oh here's the tomato soup here's a
  • yogurt soup look at this nice tube of
  • honey like that oh here's a big oh
  • here's some tortillas oh so here is the
  • chemical pack that goes into the bottom
  • of the ration heater so this is great
  • they give you three of these so this
  • ration heater bag is reusable so use
  • this multiple times and they give you
  • three of these little packets to place
  • in the bottom so you reuse this bag
  • which I like
  • ouch I was working in my chicken coop
  • yesterday and give myself a terrible
  • scratch on the chicken wire not such a
  • bad scratch just in a really bad spot
  • I'm constantly scraping it it's yeah all
  • right so let me organize everything so I
  • can get everything separated as
  • breakfast lunch and dinner the breakfast
  • is supposed to include olives but
  • instead of olives I got this little pack
  • of what looks to be something as tomato
  • it says a cuca so I'll put that with
  • breakfast and let's go ahead and open up
  • our little accessories pack 2 spoons 3
  • beverage stirs sugar tea bags couple
  • salt and peppers I'm guessing these are
  • wet naps and gum another sugar and this
  • looks like it might be chili pepper okay
  • so because it's gonna take some time
  • let's go ahead and purify some water
  • desalination but then it says
  • purification clear or dirty water you
  • can filter it and then you add one
  • tablet it says specifically do not eat
  • the tablets or not food you shake it
  • well and then you wait 30 minutes sounds
  • pretty straightforward and typical it
  • smells like chlorine smells like a
  • swimming pool so pop that in there okay
  • we'll give that a shake and then we'll
  • wait 30 minutes so I'll just set that
  • aside and then I'll drink this at the
  • very end already so before I have my
  • breakfast I'm gonna go ahead and set up
  • my ration heater because it does take a
  • few minutes for this to heat up so it
  • feels like foil paper but the inside is
  • actually lined with plastic next we're
  • going to open the heater pack here it is
  • it comes in this kind of messy bag looks
  • very similar to the ones that you see in
  • the flameless ration heater okay so
  • we're gonna place that in the bag I'm
  • gonna heat up my lunch on tray which is
  • the rice with roasted beef and chick
  • peas top that into there now I'm gonna
  • add 100 milliliters of water which is a
  • little bit more than 1/3 of a cup so add
  • that in there and then we seal it up
  • and let that sit for 10 minutes I don't
  • feel any heat usually the eruption is
  • for the immediate mm usually the
  • reaction is immediate and I can hear
  • fizzing but I'm not hearing anything nor
  • am I feeling anything all right I'm
  • gonna set the side for a couple minutes
  • and see what happens if this is a dud I
  • will use oh no now I'm hearing it can
  • you hear that all right this is
  • definitely happening it's starting to
  • inflate and I can feel the heat boobs
  • I'm going to clean up with my little
  • mask in here whoo I like that the
  • wet-nap oh it's about the same size I
  • thought it was going to be bigger but
  • it's not to me to have this kind of same
  • stretchy baby white material oh and it's
  • lemon fresh joy smell my favorites love
  • that I've got a Lipton's yellow label
  • tea bag right here same as we have here
  • in the US just this is interesting we're
  • gonna have this and this is dried string
  • cheese Wow look at this
  • it's like moom cheese have you seen I
  • did that video gosh probably three or
  • four years ago where I had freeze-dried
  • cheese and it was called moon cheese
  • this is what this looks like
  • witness it dried string cheese I was
  • imagining like the stick string cheese
  • not these little balls of string cheese
  • it smells great it smells like cheddar
  • cheese let's give that a go that's a
  • really a delightful crunch the flavor
  • definitely GZ and salty a little bit
  • tangy pretty subtle on the cheese flavor
  • though it tastes a little bit more like
  • farmer's cheese or Monterey Jack cheese
  • with a little extra tang yeah not bad
  • let's try it with some tortilla so I'm
  • gonna take out my tea bag says love us
  • tortillas pretty big pack or an MRE
  • oh so for all this packaging the
  • tortillas are actually quite small look
  • at that there's some desiccant in there
  • there's four of them in there and
  • they're pretty tiny now this is in
  • contain any olives but do contain this
  • packet here of a cuca and when I
  • translated it said it has tomato in it
  • so I think it's some kind of spread to
  • add to this and it also included a bit
  • of honey which we can have as well I
  • love this little tube of honey so
  • stinking cute
  • so the tortillas are very soft they
  • smell like store-bought tortillas a
  • little bit sour e flowery
  • already so let's give this a taste and
  • it is a tomato-based spread Turkish
  • friends do let me know if I'm doing
  • something wrong here
  • I'm sure that is very probable
  • itadakimasu
  • [Music]
  • the tortillas tastes exactly like the
  • tortillas that you v in the US MRE and
  • very very similar to store-bought
  • tortillas pretty soft pretty tender
  • pretty processed the sauce that they
  • provide is pretty nice it's really
  • richly tomato flavored kind of like
  • tomato paste it's got some garlic in
  • there and then you've got the big
  • crunchy cheese which is fun I actually
  • like the texture of it
  • the flavor of the cheese is pretty
  • subtle like I said earlier it's a little
  • bit more tangy with a slightly cheesy
  • dairy flavor to it but the texture is
  • really fun I like that contrast of
  • crunch was kind of soft tortilla yeah
  • not bad a little dry though okay so now
  • let's have a tortilla with a bit of
  • honey
  • so we'll just squirt oh my gosh I love
  • that this is resealable and that you can
  • apply as much honey as you like I'm just
  • gonna fold that in half here we go hmm
  • oh yeah I've actually never had honey
  • with a tortilla before it was pretty
  • good especially if you have it with a
  • nice cup of hot tea everything's better
  • with hot tea oh my gosh mmm that makes
  • for a pretty good snack actually did you
  • know that they said NASA astronauts up
  • with tortillas specifically not bread
  • because tortillas don't make crumbs
  • because crumbs are a bad thing when
  • there's no gravity
  • you do want crumbs floating around and
  • plugging up vents and stuff did you know
  • that yeah tortillas very handy so my
  • ration heater is heating up away I'm
  • going to go ahead and heat up some water
  • as well so this package says if it can
  • add a glass of water to this and place
  • it in the heater to warm up water for
  • our beverages I like the fact that this
  • ration heater is freestanding I don't
  • have to lean it up on a rock or anything
  • smart and this looks like this is
  • gusseted as well this will make it much
  • easier to fill about 200 milliliters it
  • said zip that up let me take my ration
  • out and I'm gonna put my water bag in
  • there so for my coffee oh look at this
  • the coffee actually is a filter this is
  • cool so I tear the top of this open like
  • that and then I stretch this open look
  • there the coffee grounds Turkish take
  • their coffee seriously love this you
  • stretch it over your oh my gosh I love
  • that so while my water is boiling let's
  • go ahead and taste our entree now this
  • is the rice with roasted beef and
  • chickpea
  • it smells delicious look at this wow
  • that is a big portion of food my hot
  • water is ready now I'm gonna pour it it
  • smells so so good and now I'm gonna go
  • ahead and make my yogurt soup so to this
  • I'm supposed to add 175 milliliters of
  • hot water whoa yogurt the soup mix
  • everywhere I'm surprised that this
  • doesn't contain many dry napkins usually
  • rations contain some sort of tissue or
  • something but not in this will add my
  • hot water quickly
  • feels like it's got some dill in there
  • and some onion hmm very interesting
  • doesn't taste exactly yogurty but it's
  • definitely got a tang to it and very
  • dilly it reminds me of dill pickles a
  • bit quite salty
  • the texture is pretty thin I think I
  • might add a little less water if I ever
  • make this again it is a soup after all
  • not bad already let's try this this
  • looks absolutely amazing
  • this is footik rice with chickpeas and
  • beef super hearty huge portions let's
  • give this a bite here we go mmm mmm I
  • like that this combination of rice and
  • protein together reminds me a lot of the
  • entrees in my Russian rations I've
  • tasted delicious very very flavorful
  • fatty and meaty mm-hmm
  • very good hearty meal the chickpeas are
  • tender and full of protein and you've
  • also got the protein rich beef in there
  • of course which is also very flavorful
  • mm-hmm this is very well seasoned
  • insulted in terms of flavor I kiss a
  • little bit of onion maybe some tomato
  • but mostly what I get is a very smoky
  • kind of beefy flavor very meaty
  • stick-to-your-ribs meal now let's wash
  • it down with some freshly brewed coffee
  • ha ha mmm that's good
  • granted it is decaffeinated but the
  • coffee flavor is much improved than the
  • instant kind of coffee powders those
  • taste really kind of fake to me are just
  • not as delicious this tastes like a cup
  • of brewed Folgers coffee it's pretty
  • good I love the whole process of opening
  • the filter and pouring the hot water on
  • top and mm-hmm this is definitely better
  • than the freeze-dried coffee let's try
  • the chickpea and beef stew with rice
  • with some of this and I'm anticipating
  • this is gonna be some kind of chili
  • powder and I'm a big fan of heat so
  • let's add some of that on there doesn't
  • have a strong smell at all mm-hmm that's
  • just a little bit of heat in there a
  • nice little spicy kick now let's polish
  • our lunch meal off with this and this is
  • a cookies and cream protein bar oh look
  • at that that looks very dense let's give
  • this a break cookies and cream I was
  • imagining it being kind of white with
  • little flecks Oreo this is definitely
  • not that it smelled a little bit
  • coconutty a little bit Cocotte all right
  • let's give that a go oh wow
  • mmm-hmm have some coffee mm-hmm
  • definitely better with coffee that's a
  • pretty tough protein bar it's pretty
  • firm the textures a little bit crumbly
  • and the flavor actually tastes more of
  • coconut more of like coconut oil rather
  • than any kind of cookies and cream
  • flavor it is sweetened and it's supposed
  • to taste like a cookie or dessert but
  • yeah not exactly delicious but if you
  • need some energy and you need something
  • portable this definitely it will do the
  • job all righty let's move on to dinner
  • so I went ahead and put a new heater
  • pack in there and 100 milliliters of
  • water along with the main entree for the
  • dinner and of course there's my water
  • heating up in there as well so sounds
  • like the reaction is pretty much stopped
  • here's my hot water and here is my main
  • entree for dinner now this just barely
  • feels warm it doesn't feel that hot in
  • terms of heating power it's pretty
  • similar to a u.s. MRE
  • so here is the buckwheat with chicken
  • another very generous portion and open
  • my soup this time moving the bowl hot
  • water which actually just feels kind of
  • warm so I'm going to actually add a
  • little less water this time and maybe
  • the soup will have a little bit more
  • body now I'm gonna make the hot
  • chocolate the water so that doesn't look
  • like it's gonna be enough so I'm going
  • to add some additional hot water and use
  • my wooden stir to mix it all up let's
  • try the soup first let's see if it's any
  • better with less water here we go oh
  • that's very salty so maybe it does need
  • more water mm-hmm that's a very tangy
  • tomato soup a little bit different than
  • what we might expect here in the US it's
  • actually quite similar in terms of
  • tankiness to the yogurt soup that I had
  • but this one of course has a tomato
  • flavor to it
  • yes kind of yogurty as well tomatoey and
  • there's a little bit of maybe oregano or
  • basil in there it does taste a little
  • bit like um marinara sauce okay now
  • let's try the kasha with chicken looks
  • like there's some vegetables in here I
  • see some bell peppers and some peas this
  • is definitely not as hot as my lunch
  • Andre all right here we go
  • that's pretty good
  • it would be even better if it was hotter
  • if this was really hot and I think if
  • the fat in here were to heat up and
  • there it would be even better but that's
  • pretty good it's not really salty it
  • doesn't have any canned flavors at all
  • the chicken is well-cooked and pretty
  • tender and tastes like kind of a
  • packaged chicken stew it does have that
  • kind of processed flavor to it but it's
  • not bad for what it is it's actually
  • quite delicious and very hearty it
  • tastes very meaty like my lunch Andre
  • very meaty and rich in terms of flavor I
  • taste a little bit of the peas
  • definitely salt and pepper and a little
  • bit of the bell pepper in there as well
  • mm-hmm now I'm going to add some chili
  • mm-hmm I think this chili is actually
  • more of a seasoning there's some salt in
  • there as well yeah I like that little
  • added kick let's have this hot chocolate
  • which almost looks more like a dessert
  • and it is in terms of flavor it tastes
  • pretty similar to Swiss Miss sweet and
  • dairy and a chocolate flavor in there
  • but the chocolate vivir is not all that
  • strong what is different is that there
  • is a thickener in this so this is almost
  • like a pudding it's not as thick as
  • pudding but definitely thicker in
  • consistency then we would have for it
  • typical hot chocolate here in the US but
  • yeah that's fun I like that thickened
  • texture it makes it feel more nourishing
  • and warm and this is a dried fruit mix
  • oh it's actually mmm like a freeze-dried
  • mix look at this
  • interesting and this looks like
  • freeze-dried the citrus like these are
  • little mandarin orange slices I've never
  • seen that before
  • freeze red strawberries my sons and I
  • love this looks like maybe peaches
  • alright let's taste the citrus rose hmm
  • and actually tastes more peachy rather
  • than orange II but maybe that's because
  • it's been with the peach let's try the
  • peach the texture is really a light to
  • kind of just shatters in your mouth
  • alright let's try a peach less hmm that
  • might actually be a nectarine really
  • nice and peachy nectarine flavor nice
  • crunch mmm I love freeze-dried fruit
  • freeze-dried fruit really captures the
  • flavors and essence of fruit and
  • intensifies them and then of course
  • you've got their really great crunchy
  • texture let's have a strawberry mm-hmm I
  • think this package might have had a
  • little leak because the fruits aren't as
  • crunchy as they could be usually when I
  • have freeze-dried fruit they're so
  • crunchy almost sponge like these have a
  • little bit of em kind of Bend to them so
  • I think a little bit of oxygen got into
  • this pack but still the fruit flavors
  • are quite good let's finish things off
  • with a bit of first gum I think this is
  • gum rather than being kind of like a
  • Chiclets or a candy coated gum this
  • looks like it's just a piece of a stick
  • of gum
  • it smells peppermint tea here we go hmm
  • it's actually more rubbery than I
  • thought it was gonna be still quite soft
  • mm-hmm very smooth piece of gum um
  • peppermint tea but not really strongly
  • pepper actually the mint flavor is
  • pretty mellow it's not like overpowering
  • like hmm I like the smooth mouthfeel but
  • it's very rubbery hmm oh I almost forgot
  • my water oh boy
  • oh it smells terrible it smells like I
  • just cleaned the bathroom
  • it smells like chlorine whoo boy all
  • right here we go Cheers
  • oh yeah it actually doesn't taste as bad
  • as it smells it just tastes like
  • chlorinated water swimming pool water
  • pathogen-free
  • critter free chlorinated water yes and
  • I'm sure if you let this air out of it
  • after the chlorines done its work it
  • would taste even less chlorinated
  • alrighty so there you have it that was
  • the tada
  • Turkish 24-hour ration pack very
  • comprehensive ration pack with lots of
  • stuff in it I like the fact that was
  • kind of divided into each individual
  • meal so the quality of the entrees was
  • very good I like the fact that you can
  • reuse this bag and have multiple heaters
  • and keep reusing this bag although I
  • have to say I was a bit disappointed on
  • the amount of heat energy that came out
  • of these I was hoping for a bigger
  • exothermic reaction the entrees while
  • they were warm weren't exactly hot hot
  • but the US Emory is kind of do a similar
  • kind of thing but all in all that was
  • very fun Amaury big things to Emory
  • Mountain for sending this to me thank
  • you guys so much for watching I hope you
