Re: French 24 hour RCIR Menu 10

Menu 10 is great, but I recommend heating it up fully so it doesn't look like it's still cold.

It's best when it's all bubbly and hot! Best bet: I heat it in a barely boiling water bath on the stove until the whole dish is hot.

Esbit stove also works well for these mains.

I was happy to find a breadmaker!

Fresh pandemic bread is great.

Re: Buying MRE legalities & USDA Confiscation

I recommend Army Surplus stores and MRE e-commerce websites with good reviews.

It's also who you know, so if they have a good review here, go for it!

My Europe-sourced foreign MREs are always destroyed unfortunately by Customs.

Re: 1941 - Scho-Ka-Kola

Strange that they put 1941 right in the front and center.

I can't think of any other chocolate that puts the year up in front. Maybe they knew they would be stored away for rationing.

Masks Required?

I like the part where they require masks, but nobody sells them. It makes me LOL.

Hope this info helps!

Re: Sopakco ERMs (Emergency Ration Meals) available

Florida is now stocking up!

I guess markets are adjusting. Not sure if MRE production is considered essential, but it should be.

Re: Sopakco ERMs (Emergency Ration Meals) available

Is there an issue going forward with restocking?

Seems to be an issue with resupplies... haven't seen anything new.

Re: Just reviewed a British 24 Hour Ration Menu 6

I haven't seen Sesame Bars before. Are they a traditional UK snack?

Looks appetizing! Maybe try nuking the hard ones to soften them up.
