Re: Strange Dark Brown Bag MRE: Meatballs with Rice

if you can find them in good shape, those Milk Caramels have always been a treat. Nice vanilla backed flavor, perfect level of sweetness, you can tell that things just tasted better back then...not sure what happened...

Re: Happy Memorial day!(Free MRE drawing)

good question....
