Dave,
I did not receive any reaction yet - but have meanwhile found a decent photo copy of the text for both Synthetic Lemon Juice Powder and Bouillon Powder - still looking for a Fruit Bar and a Baby Ruth Bar though ...
Thanks for checking current status - appreciate your concern .
Regards,
Alain :)

Guys....
Don't want to step on anyones toes, but after four years of research (and waking up in the middle of many a cold winters night, and summer's...lol) I cannot find ANY reference to a cereal bar in the K rations, there is however, one small ditty mentioned in the QMC report (1944) as regards to the C rations, a "cereal disc"...So, the cereal bar in the K ration is in my opinion wrong, unless someone can provide with serious evidence to the contrary...

Grape juice powder was a beverage which came in the C rations, late war...

Want to talk rations?...Check here: http://www.alliedforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=138
Talk of the K is there somewhere (as well as C, mountain, 10in1, 5in1 etc...) with a photocopy on the 1942 QMC spec for the K as well as othersI got from the museum at Frt Lee....
..
The bouillon and lemon powder was wrapped in cellophane (or paper) the fruit bar in cellophane also...the D bar in greaseproof paper...Coffee in foil wrapper (dug one up on La Difensa, Italy)...I have original examples of each...

I have the pdfs for all of them on my other pc, as soon as I can I will post (if I can figure them out...Or email me and I will be more than happy to oblige).... 8) :wink: :lol:

Paul,
Here is a reference to the compressed Cereal Bar being included in the Breakfast Unit of the K Ration. This has been taken from the Quartermaster Museum's website:

QM Foundation wrote:As finally specified, the breakfast packet contained a canned meat product, biscuits, a compressed cereal bar, soluble coffee, a fruit bar, gum, sugar tablets, four cigarettes, water-purification tablets, a can opener, toilet paper, and a wooden spoon.

Thanks,
Ben
