Re: Items you wish were mre but never have and or never will be one

Well.... There is DMS, dried malt extract, so with that you could make beer on the go... you could get something with alcohol in something like two days actually... i would be something that horrifies any beer expert but it would still be booze on the go... There we go. Package that with some alka-...

Powdered beer that reconstitutes carbonated nicely. Make it happen science.

Re: 2018 Menu #23 Pepperoni Pizza Slice

I almost bought some for the super bowl and I stopped because it said it's not formulated to melt. The best part is it can't even say cheese in any form on the package. It just says like "Mexican shreds" Oh yeah, you dodged a bullet there. Of course, last years superbowl came pre-ruined so maybe it...

Re: How old are we?

Another subtle clue: I believe since 2013 US MREs included a french translation which was printed below the English menu name.

Re: 10 Day Survival Ration - any info?

10 days on just 12oz of water and a dried soup packet or cereal packet per day which would have maybe 200cal? that's a rough 10 days. Must be assuming you can scrounge for some extra supplies. Of course, people were also in better shape back then. EDIT - Just saw on the label, it says it's for 2 PEO...

Re: Favorite International Ration?

Only had British, Polish, Canadian and Norwegian so far and while they were all really good, Norway would be the top favorite in my opinion.

Re: Favorite MRE menu

I'm a sucker for Tuna but since that is mostly a commercial product, I almost feel like that's cheating. Southwest beef and black beans is probably next on the list. The chicken pesto I found is highly divisive. Some people love it but my wife, who used to sample MREs with me, did not do well with i...

Re: Who makes the best reproduction WWII rations?

I caught those videos when they were posted a couple months ago. They really do look great. It's fantastic when they are made by someone who is making them because it is what they really love and it's something that they are really into versus they are just trying to make a buck. The quality is much...

Re: I got some kinda scary news today

I found out that my chronic rib pain is most likely rheumatory arthritis. I honestly don't know how to go about that but it does explain a lot that's going on with me. So yay for some progress after 2 years! Ouch, sorry to hear that Jared_St. I don't know much about that condition other than it can...
