    Default WW2 Red Cross Chocolate - Unopened

    Since Dimas just posted some unopened WW2 ration cans here --
    http://warrelics.eu/forum/ussr-equip...at-ration.html
    I thought this would add to the topic . If any of you have any other unopened rations along these lines ...please share them with us !

    Here’s a great example that we rarely see these days …WW2 German Chocolate that has made it over 60 years without being opened/unwrapped.. You'd figure some child would have ripped into this back then. Unless ..a GI brought it home and just plain forgot about it.
    It reminds me of the way the Scho-Ka-Kola was packed …same company made it so , it’s not surprising
    Here’s a little background on the Company -- Scho-Ka-Kola - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and NO ..I don't share so , I won't send you a piece

    I think the smell's long gone ...it's just really dried out and fragile.

    Hi Mike, I have a tin of Scho-ka-kola and the choc still smells good, even thoigh it is now discoloured white with age etc. Here is the choc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    65 year-old chocolate in my kind of condition--stonemint (emphasis on the stone!)

    What does the modern stuff taste like--is it bitter?

    I have eaten the current production stuff. A German friend of mine brough some over for me. It is prety bitter, but still nice. She says it is popular with Truck drivers etc who use it to keep awake.

    Here is the modern tin just for interest.

    Cheers, Ade.
