Am i mistaken or was that a vegetarian ration(no meat) ?

If so, thats the first non-meat Russian ration I've seen! Sweet!
The borscht did have meat. It was labeled as "Siberian borscht with meat". Not sure what kind, presumably beef. You're right, it would've been a first though!

24-Hr Russian SPECPIT Expedition Ration - Part 2

Hey rationauts, here is part 2 of the review. The only downside of these types of rations is that you need to have the implements necessary to boil water, as well as the time. These aren't the best for eating on the move, but if you're settled into camp or taking a nice meal break along your journey...

Seems very similar to the now-defunct IRP-BS rations. These look great!
Very similar, indeed!

Wow, that's a fresh one for sure. Good catch Norge!

I like the soup in that packaging, that's the first one I've seen like that.

24-Hr Russian SPECPIT Expedition Ration - Part 1

Hey everyone. It's been quite awhile since I've done a review, so I thought I should get my rear in gear and get to it. Those who know me on here know that I prefer doing written reviews, so that's what this will be. I'll do it in two parts, the unboxing first, then the more fun part where I get to ...

Re: S.O.S. Emergency Ration

Those have a pretty good fat content, so if the package were compromised they would likely go rancid, creating a noticeable odor when you open it. I think you would be able to tell right away just by the smell test after opening. The ingredient list in most of those is pretty simple, so there's no d...

Re: Freezing rations

You can, as long as they don't get jostled around. Like WorkmanMRE said though, storing it in a cool, dry, temperature-stable environment will exponentially increase shelf life. They don't necessarily have to be frozen, My rations are all kept at around 60 and have kept very well, even the foreign o...

Re: Why do you eat?

While I hate to use the word "foodie" because it sounds so pretentious, I have to admit that I am one. I'm a bit of a military / military history buff as well. Combine the two and this just seems the natural hobby. It's fascinating to be able to sample so many different foods and beverages from arou...
