Hello. Well, I keep being sent older and older food and now I think we’ve reached something of a plateau. If we get anything older than this, I will be very impressed as it dates back to around 1967-1968. It is a tin. A military tin given to soldiers. American soldiers specifically, in the Vietnam War. So this thing is about 45 years old. Which is a ripe old age for any foodstuffs to reach.
I would presume that the stuff in here is going to be dry stuff. It does say “Dri Mix Products Corp” at the bottom. That’s a bit of a giveaway. “B-3 Unit”, Crackers Candy”. Umm, yeah, I reckon this will still be edible. Dry stuff. It’s tinned, and I know the military tend to pick quite carefully. But what actually lurks inside, specifically? Well, Crackers and Candy I presume. But what form will the candy take? Chocolate, do you think? They used to give out energy tablets didn’t they? That sort of dextrose stuff, but I think they stopped that many years before Vietnam.
There’s also numbers printed on the top: “7 77”. Which is probably a good think to get on a fruit machine, but also, Umm… I don’t know what it means, actually. Some relevance to what’s inside it? Is it some sort of best before date? July 1977? We may never know.
Oh well, there’s only one thing to do. Open her up and see what’s inside. I’m actually quite excited about this.
Oh here we are. Lots of nice sharp metal. Well, here we go! Oh, blimey! Well, there’s the crackers. Look at that! They’re still whole! That’s amazing! They’ve been shipped from America to England and have been knocking around for 45 years! They’re still fine!
And this is a “candy (I don’t think you can read that, there we are) chocolate disk with toffee enriched sweet” Umm. Two of them, as well! Astonishing!
Umm, I’m going to try a little bit of the cracker. Looks amazingly good, considering the age! Hmm, quite sweet, bit flaky… Covered in something that tastes really… … Yeah, that’s not a taste sensation, I do wonder if that’s gone off a little. That’s a little bit on the not-right side of food.
And whereas here, oh my goodness! Wow… It looks like a disk of disease. I would imagine most of the ingredients have forced their way to the surface over the years.

What does that smell of? Oh dear! That smells really, astonishingly, like rot, actually. That’s not a good sign! I would say a joke about American chocolate here but… yeah – Alright, I’m going to give it a small nibble. Umm… Oh Jesus Christ! Eurgh! No, that’s… Umm… I think we can safely say, that is very past its best before date. The crackers are still sort of edible. But that is very much not! Eurgh… It’s just a sort of bitter wave of absolute rot and horror. That’s probably one of the worst things I’ve ever eaten, actually.
Doesn’t quite top that century egg, but it’s not far off. I’m having to try not to gag. So despite what people say, tinned stuff doesn’t keep forever,
even if it is military stuff. But hey, if there’s a zombie apocalypse, we’re all going to be eating this!
We’re about 20 minutes on, now, and despite very hefty use of mouthwash, I still cannot get the taste of that out of my mouth! If you happen to find some of these, take the look of it and the smell of it as a hint. Do not put this in your mouth. I cannot stress that enough!
