Re: Early Christmas Brought To Me By Steve1989

Wait are you the STEVE1989 the legend MRE reviewer ?! :o He may be too modest to respond, but yes he is. The one and only. Heck, last week a coworker sent me an e-mail with a link to one of Steve1989's reviews (1943 rations). He knew I was into rations, and it just happened to pop up in his faceboo...

Re: US MRE 2014 Menu# 22 Asian Style Beef Strips With Vegetables

Thanks for the review. That wheat snack bread with peanut butter and apple jelly looks delicious. I don't remember posting this, but coincidentally I bought a Menu 22 Asian Beef strips yesterday along with 3 other MREs. As soon as I got home I tore open three of them like a kid at Christmas, hoping...

Re: Beverage base power + carbonated water? Awful

Mixed it with some carbonated water, with my favorite drink mix and low and behold....I destroyed it entirely! Don't even try it, tastes awful, feels awful. Imagine drinking a bubbly gatorade, that burns as it goes down. Not great especially when you are looking to re-hydrate yourself. Stick with n...

Found a New Source

Mods, please move if this should be posted elsewhere. In my travels for work I literally lucked into a new place to buy MREs, and I picked up a few. Priority One Surplus in Hamburg PA. Right off of routes 78 and 22, west of Allentown. They had a ton of MREs, both genuine, and Sopacko look alikes. Th...

Re: FRH liquid?

I guess the intent is to ask what liquids we've used in an FRH, but I'll extend this a bit.

I've heated them in a panini maker, next to an electric space heater, in a coffee pot full of hot water, and with a propane torch.

I'm sure some of you have better methods than this.

Re: Peanut Butter vs Cheese Spread

I have to preface this by noting, as I've done in other posts, that in terms of edible delivery of calories, both are fine - the peanut butter is far better than the "cheese". I've had both, and I would eat either, but the peanut butter lasts longer, and tastes like real peanut butter. But...

Re: I'm the proud owner

I tried them in the 1996 MRE I mentioned earlier in the thread. I only ate one of the four "fingers" - no adverse effects, and it tasted pretty good - not much different than a cheap hot dog of more recent vintage.

Re: I'm the proud owner

There are 4 of them in an entrée pack.

They look like fingers.

They have a bad reputation for their side effects on the digestive tract.

Entree quality

I'd like some other opinions on this - Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but it seems to me that the foreign entrees that I've had so far (Canadian, Polish, Lithuanian, and French) have been far superior to the American entrees. I haven't had a bad American entrée, but they don't seem to have the same ...

Re: Polish S-RG-2

I had one of these for lunch today - the main entree was Mexican Chicken stew, but all of the other components were the same. A co-worker is of Polish ancestry, and is very interested in all things related to Poland, so he and I split this in the parking lot of our office building. This was absolute...
