Re: Ever gotten sick from an MRE?

I would say not very common... Personally I don't have any horror stories but, I know Steve has had a few run-ins with bad ration food, as well as two or three others on the forum.

Re: EVALUATION OF THE RATION, COLD WEATHER DURING A 10-DAY COLD WEATHER FIELD TRAINING EXERCISE

Good Read. I hope they scaled up the experiment. A sample size of 10 soldiers isn't nearly enough for a representative sample. Lol and lowered the sodium intake. Eh how high was it? Thanks for sharing that! Sully I think the sample size was actually listed as - "Twenty-four soldiers from the 1...

Re: Old School or Modern Desserts?

Last week I got my hands on a 1992 brown bag MRE (Escalloped potatoes and ham) that came with the chocolate covered brownie. The brownie looked and smelled pretty good so I tried it.

This is odd, I have only gotten the "tingeling" tongue from old MRE stuff - even when I swallow a small amount my stomach never bothers me. Next time, as a test, be sure to test out a very very small piece and see if your tongue reacts to it.

Re: Chinese new rations

Re: 81-83 brown bag cracker love

Very cool! Glad you got to taste the awesomeness that is an old school nut cake! Next, try the cherry one and the chocolate one those were good too!

Re: 81-83 brown bag cracker love

You are going to be luck if those nut cakes are good! They are a real treat if they don't make your tongue tingle! In what conditions were the cases stored?
