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.

Re: Civilian MRE's

rationtin440 Hit the nail on the head! I would not advise eating MRE's for long periods or using them as your primary food source (unless absolutely necessary). They have preservatives and additives that are not particularly beneficial to a healthy workout plan or diet. Some also have trans fat and ...

Re: Halal Certifed U.S. MRE's

I had a guy that could only do Kosher foods in my unit once. Supply would throw a fit because they had to give him those "special MRE's"! We used to steal the accessory packs out of his box I remember eating alot of raisins and granola bars and frosted flakes! I think is amazing if I remem...

Re: The worst rations in the world? opinions and experiences

I had one of those Korean MRE's (greyish foil type pack) I got it from a friend at Yongsan. It did not taste too good to me either. But food is a cultural taste you know. That one is probably the worst tasting one I have had. Some other things I dislike are Vegimite in Aussie rations and the Treacle...

Re: RCW DATING

I tried one of those fig bars awhile back it had to be early 90's dated. I did notice a color change but it tasted ok, Just dry! Is was in the standard white package though. Also the Brownie chocolate covered sometimes gets an odd smell to it? I guess the nuts inside it do go bad. The M&M's usua...

Re: vehicle ration heating systems

Our Strykers had a great water heating "box" inside them you could use to heat up water to shave or make coffee or to heat your MRE meal in. But most guys just set the packet either inside or on the exhaust pipe you can curl it up and it fits nicely inside about 5-10 min you have a hot mea...
