Re: Heater meals 3 question answered

I opened a Menu "C" meal last night, it was hamburger and there was no bread but BBQ sauce in it as well as 2 HDR items consisting of Fig bar and a pack of jelly. I agree with Kman that they are just packing to get the calorie count but what I can't figure out is why no bread especially for a burger...

Re: LRP Rations mentioned in new(ish) book

YEP, right about the beans in the Chili. Our Pathfinder unit was given these when we were on long patrols. They were excellent but required alot of water which was scarce for us. We would trade the "GRUNTS" for their pound cake and pweaches or other fine items for the ones we did not like, like the ...

Re: Interesting Substitutions in Menu C MRE

I have ran into the same thing in the "C" cases I bought. There are some HDR items but in another case I opened and the exact same meal they were not HDR's but the packaging of the MRE's. I agree with what KMAN says that they probably had some extra crackers or cookies and packed them in there. As f...

Re: New eBay seller - 1000s of cases in stock?

Kman, when I contacted him with Oletroop he quoted me $65.00 per case and when I contacted him with my other name he quoted me $70.00 and he stated both times that the cases are sealed and never opened which told me that the heaters are there. He did not state that directly but just said sealed neve...

Re: New eBay seller - 1000s of cases in stock?

Hey guys, I have bought some 2011 inspection dated MRE's from this guy (single meals) and he was great to deal with and even put in an extra meal, he said to fill the box. All meals were unopened and DID contain heaters contrary to what his auction stated. I did not want to buy cases just the certai...

Re: Late Christmas

Housil, it is nice that you got some of the rations there but a shame that the inspectors took the rest. I bet they ate them! A year or so ago I had reeived some British 24 hour rations and they had been opened by our agriculture/customs people and they removed canned cheese from them but what I fou...

Re: Heaters separated on Ebay

I have won a case of MRE's that the seller says the heaters and matches have been removed but when I contacted him during his auction he said that I would be happy with my purchase..... :D I WAS, the case arrived intact, never opened and still banded. I sell on ebay and I find it best to NEVER menti...

CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS 07 PRODUCTION PART 2

As I stated in part 1, I did warm the bread in the heater and after removing I put the grape jelly on the bread, very good and the jelly had a great grape taste to it. The bread tastes MUCH better warmed up a bit. As for the spice cake, I had never eaten one and I was surprised about the taste and t...

CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS 07 PRODUCTION PART 1

My wife was out with friends tonight so I decided to try an MRE and write a review. Now I know I am not as good as Housil doing this but I will try. I decided on a 2007 Production Chicken and Dumplings. I have not eaten one before so I was looking forward to trying it and I had not seen another revi...
