Does anyone have a review of Shepherd's Pie?
Yup, several options on Youtube. It’s not bad, a little watery but easy to eat since it’s fairly bland. Comes with the date square usually (which I don’t really like)

Can confirm, haha. That's why I like eating these at different temperatures to see. The Beef Macaroni is ...

Re: MRE's Seized in Louisville , KY

Re: MRE's Seized in Louisville , KY

Re: Australian IMCR Individual Meal Combat Ration

I searched briefly but it looks like you’ll have to try to get these from the library or a request for information, and hope it has the dates. Driver, G. E., et al.

Re: What is a chocolate filled pound cake?

According to ACR-M-033, there is a "Filled Cakes, Chocolate Pound with Chocolate Filling" however, it is not a part of any of the menus for 2013. There is a Filled Bakery Item in Menu 23, but that one is referenced later as being the Cinnamon Bun and Apple Turnovers. https://www.dla.mil/Portals/104/...
