Re: Canadian 2019 IMP Menu List

Whoaaa, well I got an unexpected surprise. 2019 Menu C's just came in. No beef Ravioli and Chicken Pesto Pasta as predicted by their tender documents. No changes from 2018. Business as usual. (I'm bummed, I don't like the Turkey Strips) Menu C(Tentative) - No longer "Supper" #15. Poutine #16. Spagh...

Re: 1948 B2 Unit

Thanks for sharing some pics, this is pretty neat. I think the most impressive component is the sugar. I'm going to guess that's to go with the coffee, but I wonder if the texture of it is any different than what we are used to. From what little info I could find online on the web from when they st...

1948 B2 Unit

Opened up a 1948 B2 Unit to show to you guys today. This particular Era of B units hasn't to my knowledge ever been seen online, but I can always be wrong. The contents were: Jelly Bar Compressed Granulated Sugar Grape Jam 2? Crackers (they were a complete mess, can't 100% tell) 2 Soluble Coffee Pro...

Well heck, that was unique. Super fun to have checked out, and I got lucky with one of the packs in there. Nearly everything else was disgusting.

Its amazing at the lack of packaging they did with those back then, such an awful design lol.

Re: First Gen MRE Alternative Menu 's - Beefsteak and Chicken Loaf

Finally! I've been trying to find and aquire both of these for SO LONG!!! Back in the first generation of MRE's from 81-85, menu 9 and 12 would sometimes (super rarely) be replaced with essentially a 9B, and a 12B. These are so hard to find, and both have never even been opened and shown online, es...

This guy: https://www.ebay.com/itm/113871605177
The only shocker is that he isn't charging an extra $37 for shipping!
I feel like ration prices in general on ebay for vintage stuff in particular have been absolutely ridiculous lately, so overpriced on almost everything..

Re: New MRE's

Seems like they must've ran into too many issues, and cancelled the whole thing (atleast that seems like the case from the message i got in my package). Apparently getting a refund for both and got some bonus subsitute rations to make up for it, really nice of the MRENation team. Sad to see, was rea...

Re: New MRE's

MRE Nation did an update on site at the meet-up. I believe there were some quality control issues from their supplier that he is ironing out, and caused some delays. I was standing a bit too far away so didn't catch it all (should have brought my hearing aids!). He has stated that he would refund p...
