Re: Coffee Instant, Taster's Choice, Red Sachet White Fibrous Residue Investigation

Wow, this went above and beyond any expectations I had. Thank you for taking to the time to perform this investigation! Initially, I was concerned that I wouldn't understand the scientific details behind it all, but you presented it so even a layman like myself could understand it. I know I said thi...

Re: 2002 Beef Enchiladas MRE Review

Thanks all! For the record, I felt perfectly fine after eating this one. To be honest, I'm having a craving for this meal again! Luckily I have one more left. Great review. I now see from where all those red sachet Tasters Choices are being sourced. The ones I gave you were mostly from 2004 era MCWs...

Re: About the Crescent

I've also seen it on non-MRE boxes. At work, I was running some CAT5 cable and had to go through a cafeteria pantry and saw some boxes that had that familiar crescent on it. At first, I thought they were storing MREs but it turned out to be something else. I forget what it was, but I know it was a c...

2002 Turkey Breast with Gravy and Potatoes MRE Review

I felt like having another MRE today, so I grabbed this one. This is a 2002 Turkey Breast with Gravy and Potatoes. I have a 2001 version of this menu as well, but Oldsmokey already made a video review of that MRE so I decided to review the 2002 menu. 20180714_122135.jpg 20180714_122212.jpg 20180714_...

2002 Beef Enchiladas MRE Review

Here is yet another MRE from a lot of early 2000s MREs I purchased from craigslist a few weeks back. Today I chose Menu 15, Beef Enchiladas. Sounds exciting, doesn't it? I couldn't wait to try it! 20180713_123708.jpg 20180713_123724.jpg 20180713_123822.jpg 20180713_123919.jpg 20180713_123947.jpg Lis...

Re: US MRE drink mixes not mixing?

I'm going to assume you're referring to the Fortified Beverage Base Powder, correct? If so, I have the same problem. The best thing I recommend is 1. Make sure you're adding the proper amount of water. 2. Put it into a Nalgene bottle or some other type of water bottle that can be closed and shake it...

Re: 2001 Beef Teriyaki MRE Review

20180706_125114.jpg 20180706_130114.jpg Looking good! I'll just start off by saying nothing went bad in this MRE except for the Taster's Choice, which is probably to the surprise of absolutely nobody. This meal had so much I could barely fit it on the plate. The beef teriyaki had a strong hint of s...

2001 Beef Teriyaki MRE Review

Over the past year Craigslist listing for any ration items in my area have been very dry...until recently. First was 5 cases of 2017 MREs for $200. Deal. A few days after that, someone had posted 17 MREs for $40. Deal again! I was really excited with that batch since it was a variation of MREs from ...

Re: What Rations are these?

Thanks for that bit of information, good to know for sure. It would've been interesting to see what the case looked like, the seller refused to include it in the listing.
