Thats the type 13 PLA ration, known as the one which sent steve into hospital :D
Dang, I had always wondered what one/s made Steve sick. I think there was a Ukrainian one in there somewhere as well.

Re: Had my first Canadian IMP. I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!

IMPs are great, for sure! Literally the only downside of them is the fact that they don't come with a heating method. The drink pouches are amazing. Why can't the US copy that design?

Re: Previously unknown PLA rations

I'd be curious to try those. I am actually a pretty big fan of PLA rations. The ones I've had (about a dozen or so) have been very tasty.

This is the kind I usually have.

Hey Norge! I really miss this entree. Many fond memories of it when camping as a kid.

Re: 2009 Tuna MRE Review

Good review. Yeah, that mayo is worthless. The tuna is probably my least favorite entree. I’m not a big seafood person though, so no surprise.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: 2005 Pork Rib MRE Review

Good review! Man, I haven’t had that one for a long time. I miss the dehydrated pork patty as well. I used to get that one as a kid at the local Army/Navy store.

Re: 2005 Cheese and Veggie Omelet MRE Review

Good review! I actually didn’t mind that entree back in the day, as long as I had some salt to put on it. It would indeed be interesting to see what Natick could do on a modern rendition of this entree.

Thanks for sharing!

Re: Coolest ration you own

I'm at work right now and don't have a pic to upload, but I'd have to say the coolest ration I own is an original WW2 K-ration. On a side note, the coolest ration-related item I own is a Civil War folding mess spoon (original).

Re: What your favorite beverage base or powdered ration drink mix?

My favorites are the Russian and British ones.

Least favorite ones are Spanish and French.
