|Survival Kits made by the Perma Pack company.|
The kits were sealed in a tin can and were made by Perma Pack in 1961!!!! I know the date because there was newspaper stuffed into the top of each can with that date on it. I was excited because it said that all the contents fed 6 people and I couldn't wait to see what they had in there. Well, after we pried the lids off the first thing we noticed was the smell. I wish I had a scratch and sniff sticker so you all could participate. You could say the smell was a little overwhelming, and what I really mean is A LOT overwhelming!! It was very rancid, but we had to keep going to see what was inside.
|This was also fun to read what was going on in 1961.|
Inside were packs of dehydrated and powdered food. My favorite was the powdered multi-purpose food :) What you would make out of that I don't quite know. There were powdered drink mixes, cocoa mix, syrup powder, pancake mix, crackers, rope, kleenex, hand wipes, a sewing kit, plastic spoons, dehydrated carrots, oats, honey powder, instant pudding, fuel tablets, alcohol wipes, instant chicken and beef soups, instant gravy, instant potatoes, powdered applesauce, dehydrated peaches, instant milk powder, camp stew mix, aluminum foil to make a pan with, water disinfectant tablets, multi-vitamins, salt packets, and a whistle. We did come across the rancid smelling item and it was dehydrated peaches. I tell you, I can still smell it just by thinking of it. We actually had to go inside and take a break and get some water. We all took deep breaths and headed back outside.
|I would love to know what you make with this :)|
|The source of the awful smell, rotten dehydrated fruit!|
|There was a package of crackers in each can.|
|We dared my daughter to eat one, and she couldn't do it.|
|These were all of the item in each can.|
Feel the peace!
