Re: OldSmokey's History Channel TV Show!

Don't know which forum to put this in, so I'll say it here... Congratulations, Smokey! Those were two fine segments, both of you were great on camera, and the items were covered with just enough background and history to give context and meaning. Very well done, sir! On a personal note, I was most p...

Re: Price Gouging Due to COVID-19

I was in our local commissary last week. The MRE section was bare. Empty. Stripped. Not even a single Veggie Taco Pasta TOTM left.

Even before this recent madness, full MREs were edging up to over $10 each or $120+ a case.

Re: OldSmokey's History Channel TV Show!

I've seen the promos, but failed to notice the broadcast date. Worse, the show doesn't appear in SEARCH on my DirecTV menu. What gives? I watched Forged in Fire last night, and there definitely was no Smokey show. Edit to add: Found it via innanet search. It airs Wednesday March 25 at 10pm Eastern. ...

Re: Shopping for MREs at our local military supply

I prefer TOTMs. I normally can't finish a full MRE - and not often a full TOTM. I use either one only as fishing trip meals. But the kicker is that TOTMs are priced at about half of a full MRE and you get 3/4 as much stuff.

Re: US Menu #12: Elbow Macaroni In Tomato Sauce

The reason I like this meal is because it is NOT like Chef Boyardee. It has a much more natural tomato taste, a touch tart not sweet. It is truly a tomato sauce instead of a sorta tomato but mostly cheesy, sweet sauce. More adult, if you will.

Re: Shopping for MREs at our local military supply

Didn't watch the vid and just going by the thread title, so I may have this bass ackwards. But every MRE is labelled "U.S. Government Property Commercial Resale is Unlawful" so if you see them in a surplus store, they're breaking the law. Apparently, it is NOT illegal to buy them, though, just to se...

Re: Shopping for MREs at our local military supply

Technically, it's illegal. I don't know if anyone has ever been arrested for it, but they could be.

Re: Heating Beverage Bags in US MRE's

The beverages are the worst aspect of MREs, no question. And that's going some, because the rest of the stuff in there isn't all that good, either. If it weren't for the small tubes of commercial drink mixes in some acc packs, there'd be nothing worth drinking but plain water. Coffee? they put coffe...
