What a nice variety of snacks.
The apricot jam and commando fruity bar really are giving me a sweet tooth at the moment. The menthol tea is fantastic - i find it especially refreshing on a cold night out camping as a relaxing close to nap time & by the fire kindof drink.

Thanks BTemple and Cavguy! This is one heck of an exciting find. Pretty sure it will be in good shape too... fingers crossed. Treesuit, the 6 man version was used from 1961-66 from what i read on QMfound. Will provide a copy/paste of what i read. Well it says scheduled for completion 1966. The one i...

Stuff like that.. if you only had pictures of your 4 year old self in that scenario. :) The franks look darker than usual.. they're always so odd. Last one i ...
Will find a Jungle and Mountain Ration specimen someday and get it catalogued for everyone to watch thru free media. Might cost a lot - my guess is they will be at some estate sale.
So I'm reading this post and suddenly I'm getting very hungry and having a hankering for some Ellio's frozen pizza! I'm guessing that that is the closest proximity to what MRE pizza is going to taste like. Steve, I know you've had the Norwegian one, correct? Would you say it's similar to Ellio's? I...

Hey Sentient, what a fantastic find! It makes me happy to know you got such an amazing deal on so many vintage goodies. It should have you set on FD fruit and cookie bars for some time.
