Re: Quick review: 2006 Menu 24 Meatloaf with Gravy

I had a 2002 meatloaf MRE not too long ago and although it wasn't anything like the meatloaf I had at a Cracker Barrel restaurant recently, I quite liked it! I also liked the salty, buttery mashed potatoes they included with this menu. Overall, I think they just bring this menu back. I found it odd ...

Re: Grocery Stores that carry Charm Squares?

I guess that's not too bad - it's one of the more reasonably priced offers I've seen. But $20 is still a pretty high upfront cost for me. If no major stores carry them, this is probably my best bet. EDIT: Now that I know they come in packs of 20, I did some more searching around and happened across ...

Just out of curiosity, and I won't be offended if you don't want to answer this question but which plan are you running at Linode?

2002 Pasta with Alfredo Sauce MRE Review

Today I decided to try out a 2002 Pasta with Alfredo Sauce MRE. This is yet another menu that is long gone out of production and very few probably exist anymore. Let's start with the pictures! 20180810_122644.jpg 20180810_122657.jpg 20180810_122742.jpg 20180810_122805.jpg 20180810_122832.jpg 2018081...

Re: Picked up some MCWs today

Congratulations on your score! I'm surprised you found those at a gun show given how somewhat rare they are. $90 for a case isn't too bad considering they typically sell for around $150 per case on eBay. Given they are six years old, it's not exactly a killer deal either. Back in 2016, I met a guy i...

Re: 2002 Meatloaf with Gravy MRE Review

Thanks! It's so hard to go wrong with potatoes, even if it's just an empty starch that provides little in the way of nutrients. My favorite method to prepare them? Grab a cast iron skillet, pour some extra virgin olive oil in it, wait a few minutes for it to heat up and pour some chopped, fresh brow...

2002 Meatloaf with Gravy MRE Review

Here's a 2002 Meatloaf with Gravy MRE I had a few days ago. Let's get right to the pictures! 20180809_122126.jpg 20180809_122143.jpg 20180809_122247.jpg 20180809_122324.jpg 20180809_122402.jpg 20180809_122513.jpg 20180809_122521.jpg 20180809_122530.jpg 20180809_123612.jpg 20180809_123620.jpg I reall...

Grocery Stores that carry Charm Squares?

Does anyone know of any major grocery stores that carry the Charms square candy? I can't seem to find them anywhere except online where they go for a completely obscene price.

Re: 2006 MRE Menu 20 Review: Spaghetti and Meat Sauce

Great review! In my experience, the spaghetti MRE is one that will last a long time before going bad. The cherry cobbler is still in the current MREs and I'd have to say it's my favorite current MRE dessert along with the marble pound cake. I love the big juicy cherries combined with that unique, so...
