Re: My first brown bag MRE! 93 or 94?

Just an excellent write up. Those Mars Bars are super near. High melting point for high temp environment use, and those FD peaches are the best dang things I’ve ever had.

Re: New menu mre nation

They did sell out fast, however there's been some issues with quality control from their suppliers, so they haven't shipped yet.

Re: 6 compartment stainless mess trays

I'm in no ways an expert, but the popularity of mess trays are definitely based on ease of presentation, and ration reviewers recognize that. There is definitely much to be said about Steve1989's presentation that plays into the popularity too I'm sure. Lots of military items the world over, no matt...

Re: Smitty Reviews - Recent Uploads

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.

Re: 2008 vs 2018

...and I couldn’t tell if it was ‘05 or ‘15. I had to look up the menus to figure it out. It would probably be wise to lengthen the date codes... Luckily the bags changed in 08 so anything starting with 0 to 7 won’t be confusing until the 2020-2027 ones come out. Hope a new bag design is released. ...

Re: RockyRaab - FRH Tutorial

Oh indeed. I maintain that this is the way people who are new or are having issues should start. Once there, they can develop their own preferences.

Your way provides a killer method to start people down the path of eating warm MREs. That and the presentation is excellent!

Re: Unwanted or extra stock

Are you in the US? I will assume so. Everything from EBay, MRENation, go-armynavy.com, foreignmre.com, allmres.com, etc, you should be able to get a fresh and delicious MRE for less than $15 bucks. Considering what's in them, and the calories alone, that's some bang for your buck right there. I woul...

2008 vs 2018

Hello, I'm curious if anyone has noticed a difference in the overlapping bag design years. Date codes only representing the last number of the year are bound to cause confusion in the hobby. Heck, what little US MREs I've had, I've eaten a 2008 that I thought was a 2018 until I checked the item list...

Re: Anyone ever try the Country Captain Chicken?

At the meet up, both Shawker and I were pleasantly surprised that we both really enjoyed a 03 CCC. I’d love to try a fresh one...and that 03 was not in great shape.
