45-year-old military candy ration tastes about as good as you’d guess

Chris Spags Founder and Editor

What would possess a British man to eat a 45-year-old US military candy ration for a YouTube video? Who knows. But the guy in this video did chomp down on some decades-old candy and edible though it may be, shocker, it was not good.

I really respect this guy for making the observations that the chocolate “looks like a disc of disease” and that it “smells like rot” and he still dove right in and took a bite. Maybe the impression we’ve all done of British guys as foppish dandies has been misguided for literally centuries. And all it took was a five-decade old tin of candy.

What'd you think of this?
