Only just recently learned about Steve1989MREInfo (aka “Let’s Get This Out On a Tray, Nice” dude), who records soothingly comprehensive video reviews of military rations from around the world and through history.
I was especially interested in the Humanitarian Daily Rations, airdropped by the US to feed a wide range of civilian populations in crisis — how are they adapted to fit a variety of dietary restrictions? (The answer: lots of beans and lentils and rice. Interestingly they still include peanut butter packets; I guess peanut allergies aren’t much of a concern.)
