Re: 1984 MRE Case + Beef, Ground, with Spiced Sauce MRE Review

Thanks! I did enquirer with Wornick, Sterling Foods, and a few other manufactures of the chocolate oatmeal cookie and only one company replied to my email wherein I requested the recipe for it. They replied back and said something along the lines of "As you know, the item is no longer made, so we do...

Re: Looking for LRRP - whole cases - well stored

LRPs are much harder to find. I recommend just getting MCWs instead. Any reason in particular why you'd prefer LRPs? They're the exact same but the outer packaging is white as opposed to brown and the accessory packets come with 1 toilet paper as opposed to two toilet papers. As far as I know, those...

Re: Computers?

I have a friend that likes to upgrade his computer every two years. The most intensive thing he does is play games, but feels a need to purchase the latest i7 CPU every other year. For gaming, it's really not necessary to upgrade that often. At that point, it turns into a "more money than brains" si...

Re: 1984 MRE Case + Beef, Ground, with Spiced Sauce MRE Review

I'm very careful about eating these older rations. It's expired food that's older than I am, so safety is very important. Whenever I break open them open, I try to make sure I'm not too hungry and in some cases, even if the main tastes good, I still don't eat it entirely because I'm just not willing...

Re: 1974 Spaghetti with Beef Chunks MCI Review

That's the one! :mrgreen: Have you been there recently? I went up there a few months ago to pick up some ammo, but their ammo prices and selection are out to lunch and they didn't have any MREs in stock. As far as ammo goes, good thing White Elephant is just down the street! :)

Thank you! Everything else was in fact still edible and enjoyable!

I also just realized that I forgot to post the final picture showing the everything fully prepared. I updated the post to show it.

1984 MRE Case + Beef, Ground, with Spiced Sauce MRE Review

I had a 1984 case of MREs laying around here for about a year and I finally decided to open it and start reviewing the case. I figure it's a good time to do it now before the MREs are totally inedible. The first one I chose was the Beef, Ground, with Spiced Sauce menu. I've had versions of this menu...

No, those had been removed a few years earlier IIRC.
