1952 C-Ration B-3 unit

This can was so pristine, I was surprised to find the jam had exploded, thus ruining the crackers and cookie. The coffee and sugar were just fine for being 66 years old! The rest of it, however...I probably shouldn't have tried to eat😬

salted MRE crackers

When did they stop using salted crackers in the MREs? I recently bought two early 90s rations and I was hoping they'd have the old salted crackers but they didn't (well, I've only eaten one so far), does anyone know which year they were discontinued? And for that matter, why? I would much prefer sal...

2015 MCW Beef Strogonoff

This is my second attempt at s freeze dried MCW...I did the scrambled eggs with bacon pieces and I don't know if I didn't stir it enough or added too much water but the eggs were not very good, so I was a little hesitant with this one, but it turned out great! This ration only came with a main, some...

Re: MREs likely to contain Grape Jelly/Drink

I just had grape jelly in a 2015 menu 6 beef taco...I like the grape the best of the US mre jelly flavors (not a fan of the apple) but I think the jams in foreign rations are way superior to any jelly in a US ration. I've never had a US ration older than 2012 but I've had grape jelly at least twice,...

Re: Canadian IMPs

Jeez if you think the snack bread would make good body armor, I bet you could armor a tank with the crackers from the Lithuanian ration I ate recently (https://youtu.be/s9KhTEWzXuU). They we're legitimately the worst component of any ration I've had so far. I hated the sardines I had in my French RC...

Canadian IMPs

Hey guys, I just tried my first Canadian IMP and it certainly won't be my last! I wish the US rations would get with that hamburger bun that comes in the IMPs, it's way better than the wheat snack bread in my opinion. Check out my review and let me know what you think! http://youtube.be/nrVoWgbHFfE
