Re: CheaperThanDirt: T-rat/poly-trays & bulk components

I noticed that they had a bunch of T-Ration entree's too a few weeks ago. I wish some vendor would get the Poly-Tray's from Sterling Foods or Pangea World Bakers (those are the dessert poly-trays!). Cheaper Than Dirt's Poly-Trays are all from Ameriqual and so are most of the others I have seen, I ne...

Re: PROTOTYPE FOOD PACKET ASSAULT

Looks kinda of like the Canadian LMC but I wonder if the food bars are dehydrated or ready to eat? OR I wonder if they are just beef jerky bars... Never seen one of those!

Re: Date codes 2010

Re: RCW

Interesting, I thought that box style was only for the newer meal cold weather and the older RCW's came in the more "flat" case like the old MRE's.

Re: Newer 2011 MRE items

Interesting looks like they are cutting the ounces help to save weight! I remember those days well on Ft. Lewis of cleaning out the SGM's Stryker after a field exercise and just chunking out bunches of full and partial MRE's by the motorpool.
