Re: XMRE Pizza, does this look normal?

I picked up a couple of the Sterling pizzas, the one that I opened was brown and had an "off" smell to it. So much so that I didn't even taste it. Don't know if that's the way MRE pizza is supposed to smell or not. Anyway, I found a Bridgeford pizza on Bass Pro's website of all places! It should be...

Re: Why does the meat in Russian rations taste so low quality? I’ve tasted meat-for-dogs of better quality

Weird, the beef in Russian rations is my favorite. I love that fatty meat. Tushonka is of simple ingredients and very tender meat. I like it when it's chunky, not so much when it's ground. I like it so much I buy the same thing in a European grocery store in my town. The Kasha is also fatty, but tha...

Re: MRE Stash in a Cave: Got a Spare $35,000?

$69 for old rations? I buy current rations in my town by the case for less than $69. Unfortunately they are US mfg and I hate US rations. I just did an eBay search. First hit was a current (or is it 2009?) MRE Star case for $62 shipped. https://www.ebay.com/itm/MRE-Star-Case-of-12-Single-Complete-MR...

Re: Want To Buy just about ANY foreign ration that you may have in the US

Same, I'm interested in any foreign ration that's already in the US unless it doesn't have meat or condensed milk then I don't care where they come from. Anyone got any, please hit me up. I've sampled over 30 countries but I don't collect, I just flat out like eating foreign rations but it matters t...

Re: MRE Stash in a Cave: Got a Spare $35,000?

9 year old cases of MRE Star meals for $69 each? Old enough to be way past prime, too recent to be collectable. You can do better for $69 (I'm including shipping).

My God, think of how much constipation 512 cases could produce.

Re: FRH: To Salt or Not To Salt: That is the question.

US heaters are the worst out there. New or not I always add premixed salt water. I often have to use two US heaters since I tend to heat more than one component. Ours still don't get items as hot as foreign FRH's.

Re: The USDA is after me for ordering French Rations - NEW 5/21 UPDATES! This is happening! To everybody :-(

How are things going these days? Have you encountered any issues? For me no, but I stopped importing. I had a personal visit with an agent, not just a letter. Rations were confiscated and destroyed. When I first posted this, other people and businesses were getting letters but most just don't say a...

yea sauce in a seperat pouch would do much better and it would feel more fresh :D
This ^^^. I've also been saying this. Sometimes the pizza comes with dry seasonings you can shake on but if they would just add a sauce packet to add, it would make the pizza so much better.

never had the US mre issue one but there was a lot of mystery meat :lol: on this one, btw the cheese didnt melt in the micro :shock:
ken
That cheese wouldn't melt in a 500 deg oven. Any picture that shows the cheese melted is a dirty rotten lie.
