Finally acquired one of these for my collection......'Scho-Ka-Kola' chocolate rations are mentioned in many German WWII memoirs ( for example, Guy Sajer mentions it in 'Forgotten Soldier' ). It's always warmly spoken of, especially on the Eastern Front. I found it quite hard to find an empty tin at a reasonable price ( good ones fetch 50-100 Euros on E-Bay ). It was a kind of 'energy chocolate', introduced in 1935 and heavily promoted during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. It was supplied in large quantities for the Wehrmacht in very distinctive tins until the end of 1942, when the packaging was replaced by cardboard containers. I was amazed to find that you can still buy this stuff ! It's still made in Berlin, and still in pretty much the same style as WWII. You can't buy it in the UK, but - in the true spirit of WWII Forums scholarly research - I ordered some direct via Deutsch E-Bay..... What's it like ? Well. if you like fairly typical Continental dark chocolate ( ie slightly bitter ) then this is for you. I can't say that I felt a blast of caffeine-induced energy, but hey......It comes ( still ) in very little 'bite-sized chunks' and is nice to have in your pocket on a cold Winter walk...... ...when you can try to imagine yourself on guard duty outside Stalingrad. Happy New Year !
