Re: Munching my way through a full 2 cases of MREs - 2014

I'm confused, are Polo mints the UK version of Lifesavers? They look like the same thing in pictures, so I don't get the problem I guess. We don't have Polo mints in the states that I'm aware of, or at least not without heading to a specialty store/isle.

You really use the German word "Hinterland"?! It's not super common anymore, but most people would know it. We've got Uber now (pronounced oo-ber), but Americans only care about pronunciation if the word is Mexican in origin, not German. Like the street in San Antonio, Toepperwein, pronou...

Re: Erbswurst help!

Yeah, it's fun, but it's not really worth getting it shipped. The guy I bought it from sent me a bunch of gummy candies in the box though, that was cool. :) Maybe try splitting a larger order?

Re: review: AlpineAire Foods "14-Day Portable Food Pantry"

Re: Erbswurst help!

I couldn't find it in the US a few years ago when I was looking for it so I just ordered some off of ebay.de. I have some EPAs and it's not in them, but who knows what's changed in the last few years. It's good stuff though, worth buying even if you have to get it shipped from Germany, but the expir...

Re: Chines ration. Russian rew.

I'm pretty sure those compressed cracker bars are supposed to be a large part of the meal. They're pretty similar to a lifeboat ration in some ways, so likely very calorie dense while not being particularly filling.

Re: Spanish Rations Review

Very nice. How many different menus are there? What are all the things that aren't main components?
