Re: Large batch of First Strike Rations for sale on ebay.

It seems to be a dated thing right? I mean the 2008 packed FSR's I have do not have a hole but the newer 2009 ones do. So maybe somewhere down the line someone applied some lesson learned. Maybe something to do with the bags expanding....

Re: Trans-Fat In Military Rations

I noticed that some of the pre 2009 dessert items have trans-fat in them. They are not required to put the trans-fat on the label if it is under .5g but you can usually tell if it has the partially hydrogenated oils in it is has trans-fat.

Yes! I remember those spice cakes. I had about 6 at once and gave them all away a few years back... Wish I would have kept them now!

Trans-Fat In Military Rations

I just stumbled across this website that has been an interesting read about Trans-Fat in the Hooah bars! Military contracting is a unique thing to say the least!

Re: Large batch of First Strike Rations for sale on ebay.

I think personally I will hold off until the prices drop more eventually. Regular MRE's meet my needs now so no use in spending more $$ on a shelf stable ration.
