Re: 1983 Orange nut cake

Surely amongst the very finest government-specification-meeting-food-item coming in by the lowest bid, ever. :shock: Yeah, I kind of liked the Maple best, I guess, though every version was filling. Good thing too, because the earliest entrees were a whopping five (5) ounces. I seem to recall these w...

Re: looking for freeze dried strawberries

I've got a few 80s MRES with "FD Fruit" listed in them. Would it specifically call out Strawberries, are they all just random freeze dried fruit, or that something completely different? I don't think so, maybe. As I recall they were in a certain "run" or lot or date of issue. The DSPC or whomever w...

Re: MRE Heaven

I recall the Pound Cakes as pure Ambrosia when they are "fresh" or what passes for it in MRE speak.

Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

pretty sure masks work well. If they don't, well, it's no real inconvenience to wear it? and lockdowns ARE effective. Well that settles it then, I guess. Since ... you're "pretty sure" and all.

Re: looking for freeze dried strawberries

While my memory isn't infallible it seems to me there were FD strawberries in the earliest MRE iterations, about the same time frame as the FD pork pattie and Ham & Chicken Loaf. There was some strangeness and jiggery pokery going on in those days, menu items didn't always tally up with what they we...

Re: 2005 Pork Rib MRE Review

Where do you think they got the "Pork Ribs" from? They re-hydrated all those rejected FD pork patties sitting in a warehouse somewhere, ha ha. Seriously though, some of the menus are derivative or obviously "old wine in new bottles" in the sense they mix and match recipes. I like the "Pork Rib" it's...

Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

Oh, it's deadly no doubt. The politicization is clearly on the part of those clamoring for permanent lockdowns and wearing masks inside our homes and the rest of it. The The studies are showing dust masks provide some protection if infected individuals wear them, but that it is "statistically insign...

Re: Moist Towelette — Hand Sanitizer — Disinfectant

I'm pretty sure any virus will last more or less indefinitely. They don't go away. They are identified, catalogued, and tracked. The "Spanish Flu" that killed millions in 1918 is still around today. If you haven't got it yet, you probably will. Roughly half of Americans are going to contract it. May...

Re: 1992 Tuna noodles

No, no no! lol, I was there in 1992 ... and the Tuna & Noodles was a nice cream color.

When the little bottles of Tabasco started appearing, that was a big hit. Everybody thought that was the coolest thing.
