Re: A quick look at some 1978 MCI B-1 and B-3 Units

No peanut butter? Shame! I have some other MCI components around here and the peanut butter comes in a separate, much smaller can. One day I plan to try it and post pictures of it as well. Thanks for showing us, that's a nice can. Where did you buy it? I bought them along with a variety of other as...

Re: ~2003 Norwegian FR 2000 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) Review

Okay, I meant to post the lunch ration before this one, but mistakes happen and here we are. Maybe it's not so bad, after all, the K Rations went in order of Breakfast, Dinner and then Supper. Anyway, here is lunch! This one was sort of "meh". The chili con carne was okay, but didn't have much to sp...

Re: ~2003 Norwegian FR 2000 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) Review

Now it's time for dinner. Now, this one was really tasty! The beef and potato stew was nothing like I expected. The potatoes were mashed, the beef chunks were small and pretty chewy, and it just had a lot of good flavors in it! Despite what it may look like, I think I enjoyed this entree the most! W...

~2003 Norwegian FR 2000 (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) Review

I was at a local army surplus store a few months ago and came across these odd rations. They are Norwegian FR 2000 rations. You can read the full backstory here if you are interested: http://www.mreinfo.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=10222 I still don't know the year but since everything had expirat...

A quick look at some 1978 MCI B-1 and B-3 Units

I found a few B-1/B-3 units that I wanted to try out, so I decided to take some pictures so you could all come along for the ride. Everything in the B-3 unit was still good. The chocolate bar was starting lose its flavor and I could tell it was starting to turn, but it was still edible. I kept on in...

FR 2000 Field Ration

Hi all, I took a trip to a local Army Surplus store recently and happened across something very unique. I purchased these field rations for $10. I asked the clerk what these were and he said they were "rare NATO rations", but beyond that, I don't know anything else about them. Can anyone identify wh...

Re: Is the XMRE Pizza and Bridgford Pizza the same?

Maybe my fascination with science and technology is causing me to be biased here, but I think it was pretty good. I haven't had the actual MRE yet, but I did purchase some packs of the pizza from a nearby sporting goods store. I tried it cold and tried it heated up. Aside from it being a bit dry whe...

Re: Help With K Ration Authentication

These look legitimate to me, just based on watching Steve1989's videos along with seeing other pictures on the internet. I can't speak based on real life experience. What does it smell like? Does it have an old library book type of smell? If so, I'd say there's an even better chance they're legitima...

Re: Unopened 1941 & 1944 Scho-Ka-Kola on Ebay. German WW2 Chocolate

Thanks for sharing, this is really neat! Although I could afford both of them, it would be hard to justify spending $800 on vintage chocolate, as cool as it would be to own them. For posterity's sake, I will upload the images here on the forum. 1941: s-l1600 (3).jpg s-l1600.jpg s-l1600 (1).jpg s-l16...

Re: Meal, Flight, Feeding Individual

Thanks for sharing some pictures with us. IIRC, there was a post a while back where someone posted some from sale, some people said they bought them, but no one shared any pictures until now. Interesting to see there's not much difference, other than the cardboard sleeve, which was an interesting ad...
