Re: US Mre

They sell MREs on military bases, at the Commissary (grocery store) but you have to be in the military or retired to shop there.

It is in fact illegal to sell them commercially. I don't think they've ever prosecuted a single case of it, so that's why people take the risk.

Re: College-grade MREs

I can't help here. I commuted to college, a half-hour each way. I ate at home or wherever I could. I also carried 16 to 18 credit hours a semester, and worked 20 hours a week to help pay my tuition. And all that was a half century ago.

Re: Has the military ever considered giving soldiers the astronaut ice cream

Spike, it may amuse you to learn that even astronauts don't get "astronaut ice cream." It's actually a gimmick originally sold in various museum gift shops (and now elsewhere) but it hasn't been on the spacefood menu in a long time. (They tried it, and it just doesn't taste good in space. Foods tast...

Re: Just curious, but what is a good price for a single

That's what I mean. You can walk into your local wal-mart or camping store and buy a Mountain House Single meal, powdered drinks, and a protein bar for less than $10.

Can't help you with a price for MCWs, but you can probably just about break even with a Mountain House meal plus the other items bought commercially.

Re: Metal Utensils In MREs

Possibly, some of the confusion comes from the "Youtube" habit of calling all rations MREs. That's as inaccurate as calling all small planes Piper Cubs, or all tissues Kleenex. An MRE is only one type of US ration among many others, and no other country's rations are MREs.
