Re: RCW DATING

Hey mreheater, I'm glad you enjoyed seeing my update on this neat old post, and on what I feel is one of the best military rations ever to be produced! :) I feel badly you have had bad experiences in the past with the fig bars! :( Were they rancid or did they just taste bad? I personally enjoy the "...

Re: 1980 LRP - Beef With Rice - Full Review

Have you got a chili and beans LRP? I tried to eat one, back in 1972, it was like gravel... :cry: Hahah! :lol: Yessir I've had one but I lost the Hard Drive it was on. I wish I'd still had the photos - it was called Chili Con Carne, and it was from 1977. I'd lost most of my 2012 ration photo archiv...

Re: Random Box of MRE stuff

Nice one, ElevatorFan! :D The baked snack crackers aren't too exciting to begin with, and when they're older than 6 years or so they tend to go rancid. Yours are incredible! Even the packaging has seen better days! :) That's a pre-2006 Dairy Shake! You can tell from the packaging, they changed to th...

I put it in my fridge and will have with french fries later - and will take pics. The pictures speak f...

Re: Food Packet, Life Raft, Aircraft - DoP 1962

You are welcome! I feel we have come a long way in our military's survival rations here in the US. I hope it is okay but I would like to show an example here on the same thread of a newer 2010 Survival ration that has been reviewed before but not one this fresh. Nowadays, they have those General Pur...

Re: 1980 LRP - Beef With Rice - Full Review

! For some odd reason I can only find this photo in my archives of the cocoa's date code and darn it I can only see 24701 on it and I could have sworn when I took a close up that I cannot find now it said 024701 and I thought it was around September 1980 - but now I have no idea when this was made. ...
