Re: (Unknown Year) Food Packet, Long Range Patrol Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Thank you for the detailed review with great photos :D ! I don't know what year this was produced as I couldn't find any indicator on the packaging (I looked everywhere, I swear!).

Re: Gotta love ebay.

The back of your case has a 6-97 (I think it was 6-97 if my memory serves) - I saw that case on Ebay. Knew it was a 1997 and thought it was going to skyrocket for that reason.
