Re: Civilian version of FSR sandwich?

No? No, what?

The 99¢ price? The free samples sitting on my desk right now? Or the case price of $125?

Re: GRANOLA WITH MILK & BLUEBERRIES

I just bought a #10 can of this packed by Mountain House. Good until 2035!

Re: Today for Lunch: TURKEY BREAST PATTY WITH POTATOES IN GRAVY

I've got about ten of these left. Gave a few away as "budget Thanksgiving dinners" to a few friends. The turkey patty is very dense and chewy (at least mine was). For variety, I took the turkey patty and put it between some cheese and bread and made a grilled turkey melt sandwich.

Re: Test your knowledge with this

I got 1400. But they used one of my pics! It was the late 1970s LRP ration review of Chicken Stew Hey...we gotta give extra credit to the military food! That Chicken Stew I revived was made in the late 1970s!! That's some THIRTY-YEAR-OLD meal, man! Put that up against your Singapore Airlines stuff!

Re: best place to buy MRE food?

I've used theepicenter.com before and got good deals on individual entrees and such. My local survival goods store, SOS Survival Products, carries SurePak and I get a nice discount off the regular price. If anyone's in the southern California area, check them out. Also, online at http://www.sosprodu...

I'm just thinking of all the "MRE trash" from a night like this -- cardboard, plastic, foil pouches!

Re: Civilian version of FSR sandwich?

If you're in southern California, you just missed the parking lot sale at SOS Survival Products. Jeff (the owner) had a bin of Bridgford shelf-stable sandwichs out there . . . for 99¢ each! Since I still need to buy emergency food for our new school, I contacted the Bridgford manager back in NY and ...

Re: What's YOUR current favorite MRE entree?

I love those old (dark brown bag) BBQ Pork with rice and the Meatballs (marbles) in tomato sauce entrees.

Also, it's no wonder that Beef Stew has been on the MRE menu ever since creation. Excellent choice.

Re: my mre/us ration display ready

Thanks for the info on that "white label" LRP. I still wonder why the MCW from 2004 is labeled "Food Packet, Cold Weather" . . . I can just hear the foreman saying, "Alright, it's just like the 'Food Packet Long Range Patrol' but put 'Cold Weather' on it instead!" Nah, ...
