Re: Just had my first MRE

So it happened, i took a trip to the army surplus and purchased a US MRE. I was quite excited to try it. The menu I purchased was menu 11 Vegetable Crumbles With Pasta in Taco Style Sauce. I opened it up and was pretty excited to begin trying it out. First I diddled around with the heater to get th...

Re: Emmy Does Rations

She's fun. I like her. One big difference I notice is that her reviews are of her eating the rations. Meaning the camera is facing her and vice versa. Almost all of the male reviewers go for the opposite, where the camera is in the approximate position and facing of the face or eyes, away from the r...

Re: 2007 Pork Rib age test

I like the quantitative nature of the FRH experiment. Interesting, repeatable results ?

I think you'd need to do a test with 2 FRH's of the same approximate vintage, one with salt and one without. But, maybe I'm overthinking it.

Re: French R.I.E.

I thought the deer pate tasted like plain old "deviled ham" we had back in the day, ( the on in the pink wrapper ). I didn't heat it up, I should have thought of that.

Love the bars, pate de fruits is the best IMHO.

Re: French RCIR Menu 5

The chocolate biscuits are very nice, sweet and chocolate-y. Big surprise to me is that the other biscuit types are also sweet. In fact I don't taste anything but the sweetness. I totally love the pate de fruits bars, those are SO good ! I also enjoy the other bars, "commando barre" and no...

Re: French RCIR #6

I've had the anchovy and deer pate in my 2 RCIRs. Surprisingly, I liked the anchovy much better than the deer. The deer just tasted like the old "deviled ham" cans we used to buy in the store. The anchovy pate had an interesting taste that wasn't as nasty overall as I expected.
