Re: Smitty Reviews - Recent Uploads

In America, this is common Canned Corn Beef. Sold in most grocery stores and something I have grown up with for 50 years. The better quality canned corned beef comes from other places like Britain, Brazil, etc which is not a ground texture but larger whole pieces. All I ever much did with canned cor...

Re: Looking for recommendations on Jap or Korean hard candy

I find Japanese candy usually has more flavor, and things like gum the flavor lasts longer. Japanese milk candy is a very traditional candy, also sugar cane candy that is amber or dark amber in color. The only Japanese candy I don't care for is another traditional candy, shaped like tiny little sea ...

Re: biscuits, brown?

To me they taste somewhere between wheat thins and a graham cracker. Sweeter than a wheat thin, but less than a graham cracker. I love biscuits brown!

Re: Mystery boxes, small $65, medium $115, large $150

I ordered two small and two mediums. The medium and large tend to have the big surprises in them. I liked everything that was packed into my boxes last time. Each item was something I would have gladly purchased for myself to eat or collect and the boxes were packed full.

Re: Questions about US MRE's

weird, to me as a dumbass civilian, it sounds shitty to have to eat cold meals. It IS shitty! I know that the MRE's can be eaten cold but they are God awful when you do. I find I must heat the mains and a lot of time the breads and other components for the texture to be decent. Only then do I find ...

Re: Questions about US MRE's

Why do US MREs do not standardize accessory packets? What I mean is... some packets have no coffee, some have no base drinks, some have tea. Is it that America can't afford to put all 3 in each MRE to give someone who is fighting for their homeland a choice? I honestly am curious about this one, it...
