Re: 1987 Beef, Ground With Spiced Sauce

This is one of my favorite vintage MREs! It holds up well, is filling, and the fruit mix and the chocolate oatmeal cookie are a good mix. It reminds me of the newer Sloppy Joe MRE, I wish they still made that one.

Re: Review: 1989 Ration, Cold Weather (RCW) Components, Part 1

Nice catch! I just checked, when I previously reviewed a 1989 2A/2B RCW here, it was not included.

Review: 1989 Ration, Cold Weather (RCW) Components, Part 1

This has been my second chance to try out one of the older Ration, Cold Weather ration items (predecessor to the current production Meal, Cold Weather). I picked these up about a year ago at a surplus store and was surprised to find them. I know some of these components are highly sought after. Some...

Re: MRE's Seized in Louisville , KY

I can understand the frustration from both sides, it’s completely warranted for Uncle Mike to be upset by this. Personally, I would direct my anger and frustration to the customs who confiscated my property for a stupid, illegitimate reason. We can stop customs by calling our congressmen and ask th...

Re: Starch jelly candy in mres

I've never come across it in my experiences. I bet they're referring to the Chuckles candy but I wonder why it's listed when it's incredibly rare or never existed in those MREs.

Re: 2009 Chicken Pesto Pasta MRE Review

Did you try heating the cheese with the main in the FRH? Sometimes that helps it to mix better and not be so chunky. But if its bad, that's not going to help with the flavor. Thanks for the review! I actually don't even bother with the FRH with these older MREs, I figure it's not worth time conside...

2005 Veggie Burger with BBQ Sauce MRE Review

A vegetarian friendly hamburger in an MRE? That has to be good or at least interesting to take a look at. Without further ado, let's do that! IMG_0101.JPG IMG_0102.JPG IMG_0102.JPG IMG_0103.JPG Here is the veggie burger in its retort pouch. IMG_0104.JPG And the items included in the accessory packet...

Re: 1987 Beef slices in bbq sauce.main only

I had a similar experience with this ration! In my experience, it's one the menus that seems to stand the test of time better, second to the freeze dried pork patty and beef patty. I've also noticed it's dried up like a big piece of beef jerky. I actually really liked this menu.

2009 Chicken Pesto Pasta MRE Review

Continuing on with my "choose a random MRE sitting in the closet and try it" adventures, I dug out a 2009 chicken pesto pasta MRE. Given that this ration is 11 years old and I don't know what it's storage conditions were prior to a few months ago, I was curious about this one. IMG_0088.JPG IMG_0089....
