Re: 80s US MRE?

Thanks, i'll check it out. My memory may be shot, but i thought it was in a sauce of some kind. Wish i could remember the other contents of the ration. I don't know about the patty of that vintage, but the fairly modern ones are in a watery sort of seasoning. I wouldn't exactly call it a sauce. It'...

Cheap MREs located in NC

My brother was visiting relatives in NC last week and reported that a place called Curt's Premium Outlet in Gastonia, NC, is selling MREs for $16 a case. That's even cheaper than I've seen shady people selling out of their trunk at gun shows. My brother doesn't know anything about MREs but was smart...

New England members- tomorrow is sale day!

Just a reminder that the annual Underhill-Jericho (Vermont) Harvest Market is tomorrow. There’s always tons of cold weather rations and equipment for sale as the US Army Mountain Warfare Center is right there. Typically a residence on route 15 southbound just north of Brown’s Trace Road sells small ...

Should be 1996-2000 but I've never seen ones with no menu description.
They are civilian, and the menu would be printed on a decal affixed to the outside of the case they came from.

Re: Mountain House Sales

Sierra Trading Post, at least in the store near me (they are also online) has the 12-serving version of this for $49.99, packed in a bucket. Item number was 481XU-99 when I bought mine on July 15.

Just looked through a 2015 FSR case and there was nothing with a bagel in it :(

Hard or soft water, perhaps?

Re: A Pack Civilian Rations

I believe the 0088 is the date code. 2010...wow. I've had a few of the meals here and there over the years and they are exactly what they appear to be-- generally familiar MRE components in a different package. One odd thing was that they included red star mints, and those seemed to always arrive me...

Re: Strange WORNICK MRE

Yes, they pop up here and there often. From the late 90s I believe.

Not sure if I have ever seen the components however. That would be interesting.

Re: STORM II Rations

I do see they have the cardboard entree sleeves, which the older civilian meals I've encountered do not have.

I have at least a few of those older ones on hand if we want to open some up to compare contents. I wouldn't mind at all.
