Re: EBAY Asshat of the Month Award

The price of the Goulash isn't a problem, since I'm happy to wait a year or so until they are all over the place for $6.

Steve just put out a new video reviewing it, and it doesn't look very good anyway.

Re: TFF

I've been out for over 20 years and I guarantee that none of us cared what was in it as long as it tasted good, but I'm willing to believe that this generation might care about TFF.

The younger guys I know definitely have a different sensibility.

Nice find.

Two different contents lists, too, and the two different names for Right Away Foods.

Re: Newbie help

I know that reviewers need to put the meal out on a tray so that the viewers can see it, but I've always thought the chow tastes better eaten straight out the pouches. Lol. I also prefer to use a canteen cup for beverages, not a regular glass. Maybe suggest that he dig a hole in the backyard to sit ...

Any meal is good, if he's never had one!

Just mind the packing dates. Something produced in the last few years will be your best bet.

He's not the first Englishman I've heard say that they dislike peanut butter.

Always seems odd to me as an American. We love the stuff.

Re: Anyone ever try the Country Captain Chicken?

Been so long, I might be mixing up the reasons for disliking it.

This one had almonds in it, right?

I love nuts of all kinds, except mixed in with meat. Repulses me for some reason. CCC also had some odd seasoning on it, too.

Re: MRE 40 (2020) Improvement Ins and Outs

Shame about the hash browns.

The sausage and marinara sounds good. It would be nice to have some kind of roll to put it in. Gawd I hope they don't pack it with tortillas.

Too many tortillas.
