Re: Found this MRE at a flea market. Know anything about it?

The Red Pack coffees (folgers and tasters choice) for some reason tend to mold up at the drop of a hat, so I would not necessarily use them as an indicator of condition. I think the condition your referring to when you say "Mold up" is called "Webbing". A white, thread like condition found in the c...

Re: New Close Combat assualt Ration

Re: Found this MRE at a flea market. Know anything about it?

Re: Happy Memorial day!(Free MRE drawing)

good question....


so far I'd have to say it's a toss up between Spanish B2 unit and good old fashioned Beef Stew MRE....but the Brown Bag Corned Beef hash is not far behind as a secondary choice...

Re: Trying to find certain MRE coffee

IIRC, Irish creme came in with one of the beef entrees, thinking brisket or beef stew....can't remember which ones.
