Re: SPICE CAKE WITH VANILLA CRUMB Date of Pack July 2, 1999

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: TraPacs for trade or sale

If you come across any dessert trays let me know! I will be more than happy to take them off your hands.

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

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 ...
