Re: 1996 Chicken and Rice MRE Overview

"So, this one didn't hold up very well. I guess that's to be expected considering it's old enough to buy me a drink or in my case, old enough to have graduated high school with me."

I love the verbiage! Overall, great review, thanks for sharing!

Re: Best packing Co. for US MRE's?

I'd give my nod to Ameriqual. They have a lesser-quality exterior bag (matte finish, not glossy and the printing rubs off more easily), but where they shine is the consistent use of the inner plastic bag. This inner bag is very useful as I've had rats gnaw through Sopacko and Wornick MREs, but the A...

Re: Late 2015 FSR Case

Dangerous Dave, isn't Wornick now in-charge of LRPs? IIRC, Ameriqual now makes MREs and FSRs mostly. Ameriqual used to make the MCW (2005), but then they stopped and Wornick took over LRPs and MCWs.

Re: 2013 Long Range Patrol Ration- Menu #9, Rice & Chicken, Mexican Style

Great review and nice pictures! Thanks for sharing. Overall, I think LRPs are special and rare. I have one and I am struggling to resist not eating it. As for the meals themselves, I think they should bring back freeze-dried fruit chunks, apple ciders and include more chocolate-coated oatmeal bars, ...

Re: 1996 Ration, Cold Weather: Menu# 5-A

Great review! I love reading about RCWs. I've always felt these were the best US winter rations. I really hope the next iteration of the MCW will make it more unique and have more food items for cold weather sustenance (important) rather than just being an LRP in white exterior packaging. Thanks for...

Re: 1996 Ration, Cold Weather: Menu# 5-B

Nice pictures! Sad to hear that yours didn't hold up so well. The RCW is the best US ration I've ever had. Now that I'm thinking about it, I'd probably still eat mine even if they were rancid just to see how "Big Boss" from Metal Gear Snake eater felt like when he ate bad food. :shock:

Re: Various randoms for trade.

Hi Steve,

Would it be possible to know if you still have available for trade or sale the 1993 Cinpac RCW Set? Does it have the "Candy, Chocolate Bar With Toffee Enriched, Sweet Type 7, Style 1"?
