Re: MRE TP

Sorry, this is way off topic. It would be sweet if you would make this GIF your signature. https://i.imgur.com/9b4TIdB.gif I just tried to make it my avatar but I'm futzing something up, too big, won't let me do it. The avatar I use has the benefit of being real, that was a polar bear on the other ...

Re: Coffee, Instant Type I & II question

There's caramels that were in the 1982 accessory pack too that appeared to hold up just fine. In the brown bags I was getting from Dudeman looked fine, smelled fine, felt fine, and yet had a strange off flavor strong enough I didn't eat them. Something did not age well. Tootsie rolls seem imperviou...

MRE TP

I have thrown hundreds of the butt rations away from US MRE's I've had. Maybe I should have kept them considering people are going apey and wiping out the store stocks. I'm not generally wasteful but the whole one square thing just doesn't do it for me. Every other ration that has them at least does...

Re: Just reviewed a British 24 Hour Ration Menu 6

The sesame bar in this review was so soft it was falling apart. Every sesame bar I have ever gotten has been rock hard and would break your teeth. It took a chisel to separate the bars and they never bent, only broke. Is it just me? Has every bar I've gotten just been stale?

Re: Gundogging it to the Max Challenge!! 2016 Menu 17 -Never go full Gundog-

I watched a documentary on British SAS training. Part of it was a field exercise where you were not allowed to be discovered during the entire period or you failed. The soldiers each dumped their rations mixed up together in a bag to save weight and space. They each had to make a spoon in the field ...

Re: 2019 Milspec MRE Chicken and Rice Review

Legions of people have made the same mistake. It's a problem, the 4 digit code sucks. Going to the 5 digit format will really help. That yours tasted so good is a testament to how well that case was stored. Sampling and reviewing old rations is far more interesting to me anyways. You scored a case t...

These are actually from 1999, not 2019. Good review though, thanks for sharing!
Knowing that, then watching the video made me LMAO!

I'm actually more curious in how they taste :) These are components I have never experienced.

Re: 24 hour cold clima ration.PD 12.2019 UK

I'm curious about the hamburger, the beef and pork patty, and the custard with fruit components.
