Re: Old School or Modern Desserts?

Dehydrated fruit, cereal bars, chocolate covered oatmeal cookie.. think I gotta go with the old school. :lol: :lol:

Doesn't mean the modern ones are bad either. Really a big fan of Lemon Poppy-seed Pound cake.

Re: Food Packet, Survival, GP

I agree with housil, the packaging seems different for a 90's production. That's a good thing though.. !

Re: 1996 Menu 6 Beef Frankfurters

Nice review! I personally like the beef frankfurters, aka four fingers of death :D :D

The peanut butter is something that always holds up pretty well in older MRE's.

Re: Strange Brown MRES?

I agree. Notice that the packer is Shelf Stable Foods. I bought a 12-pack of civilian "MREs" back in the late 80s that fit the same profile: two of each entree and identical other components. Mine had grape jelly, crackers, and a slimmed-down acc pack. I can't remember the dessert, but it...

Re: Strange Brown MRES?

How were the entrees and other food contents, where they still somewhat fresh? I have yet to try a brown bag MRE and I wish to do so. The components were completely fine! :D getting harder and harder to find items like this that are still fresh. It really depends on the storage conditions. I always...

Re: Favourite ration beverage?

Unpopular, but I really like the Lemon-lime and grape beverage bases in US MREs

Strange Brown MRES?

Writing this quick, here's the summary: I went on eBay and decided to purchase a lot of brown bag MREs. When I got the MRE's in the mail, I noticed that they came in the original box, which is just like a standard US one from today, but slightly smaller. I opened it and also noticed that the meals w...

Re: Food Packet, In Flight, Individual IF-7 from Oldsmokey

Great review! I'm sure just swiping a UV light underneath it a few times would of cleared that stuff right up, Bon Appétit!

That ham was, honestly though, the most scariest thing you've opened up on camera. I can't even imagine the smell that thing must of had.
