Re: Spanish Rations Review

Yes, I think personally I need 2 packs of Pan Galleta one for lunch and one for dinner to fill me 100% full for an active day. How about the "pan galleta" cake version does this even exist?

Yes the "pan Galetta", what I mean is I think you need (2) packages of these along with 3 rations for a complete 24 hours meal. I think they should just put them in the ration itself and not issue separately. I have a few Spanish rations and only got (1) package of "pan Galetta"...

Re: Spanish Rations Review

Great pics! The only thing I do not like about the Spanish rations are for the lunch and dinner rations you need to be given the separate pack of crackers (bread) to go with the meal. My personal opinion is if you don't have the extra crackers you don't get the full meals. Another thing I noticed is...

Re: Protective eyewear/eyeshields

I always liked the Military standard issue Oakley glasses, you can find them on Ebay quite easily they are ballistic rated and don't fog up that bad. Every pair of ESS ones I had would fog up like crazy and were uncomfortable to me.

Re: Life is so hard :(

Treesuit shoot me a message if you want to part with any of those dessert trays; all the cakes, etc.. I have seen so far in the Polymer trays last at least 4 years I can vouch for that.

mreheater72 is correct, those cakes and cupcakes are designed to be kept frozen and then thawed prior to the meal then served immediately, however some of the newer trays (almond cupcakes only one I know off hand) are shelf stable meaning they can be stored without refrigeration.

Re: CR1M Packaging

Great pics! I also find it odd they do not mix the menu's. But they probably issue them in mass at company level so I bet there are a bunch of cases of each menu so you can pretty much grab whatever menu you like, well hopefully!

Re: UGR Coffee Cake

I remember that one too pretty good tasting! Been trying to find one of those online for a few but no luck. When I was on active duty I took 3 trays of the Coffee Cake home with me, ate one then could not bring myself to eat the others so I sold them to some surplus store! Wish I had kept them now...
