Re: Article: The Russian Army was fed inedible rations

Re: SUV versus Lithuanian Biscuit.

I bought Menu 4, and the year of packing is 1998. My menu was Pasta and Vegetables in Alfredo Style Sauce
I remember this meal, the taste of the alfredo sauce was super fake and just all wrong! This and the "newer" omelet and the veggie burger were a few of the worst ever meals in my book.

Re: Salmonella &/or Heat effected MRE review

Perhaps it was the dairy shake powder see this;

You said your MRE was packaged in 2010 but perhaps it contained a recalled shake from 2009 or before by accident?
