Mre Cheese/Peanut Butter net wt.

From the 2017 packed case I opened, they dropped the net content weight of both the peanut butter and cheese packs to 1.0 oz. from earlier 1.5 oz. WTF Over? 2 of the best mre comfort food components. :(

Re: Coffee, Instant Type I & II question

The newer tan packs of spray-dried should hold up forever, just like the old school packs from MCI's and '80's MRE's. The tan packs of freeze dried will hold OK as lone as the Mfr./packing process was in spec for the particular batch.

Re: MRE 2019 Menus

Now that #7 is interesting, man. Beef strips in a tomato sauce? Sounds like they tryed to copy the German EPa Hamburgers in Tomato Sauce. Seems the Germans discontinued that main for a couple of years, then brought it back, due to popular demand. I'll be looking for that #7 and yes, probably be disa...

I'm still trying to figure out the purpose of the Type 13 Chi-Com ration. Contains 2 320 gram mains, a tiny vege pack and a drink mix. WTF? Over. :?:

Re: US MRE drink mixes not mixing?

it's real simple. They "SUCK", to begin with. They should get the British or European Orifo kool-aid packets. Even the Canadian drink mixes are superior to ours. I'm on the phone with Trump now, complaining about it. 8)

Re: British 24h ORP Sesame Seed Bars

I've eaten a bunch of British rat-packs over past couple years, thanks to Foreignmre and other suppliers. I agree with Rahzmataz on these. Maybe good for last resort emergency food kit only. The British Army should coat their grenades with this stuff for extra fragmentation effect.

Re: 2014 Food Packet, Survival, G.P.

This one had odd 'over-stickers' on most items. I carefully peeled back the '4035' sticker on the outer box. It had '3189' printed on the box. The cornflake bar had no sticker, and had a tiny stamp '3031'. I tryed a shortbread bar today at work. Not a problem. Taste the same as the day it was packag...
