1980 LRP - Beef With Rice - Full Review

I am back with another early 80's Cadillac Products - Food Packet, Long Range Patrol. Menu 4 Beef With Rice. Everything was still perfectly fresh and in particular, the lemon corn flake bar... oh my goodness I loved it! I wish I had 30 more of those things. :lol: I for some reason broke my own rule ...

Re: RCW DATING

Here is an High Definition-Style update on a 1998 RCW. I opened one of my babies on this past February, and the reason was I heard the M&M's had bursted open in the -b component and that's all it took for me to say - "Ok I gotta open you". Oh, and the Chocolate Covered Brownie's nuts tend to go ranc...

Re: US Ration Spoons

Hello, I wanted to show something out of my collection. Has anyone seen this before? I hadn't until last year when I got a few of these!

By the way - very cool thread! :D

Re: Yellow Pack HDR - Year 2000 DoP

Thankyou and I agree to some extent, Bypah. :) But, the thing is - items like the ''Bean Salad'' and those Apple Fruit bars have never been photographed before (to my knowledge) and are not in the Salmon colored ones. I will do a preview on one of my Salmon sets to show you the difference. The entre...

More Pics


I took the rest of the mint sucrose tablets with me to work and enjoyed them on my long drives.

This ration is now what, 51 & 1/2 years old?

Neat stuff! Thankyou for looking!

Food Packet, Life Raft, Aircraft - DoP 1962

I had recently bought 3 of these. Check out what the old Charms Life Raft Tablet Rations of WW2 eventually transitioned into by the early 60's! :)

It's an old sardine can with the key. Those are always fun to open - it's sharp so be careful if you ever open one.

Here is a full presentation.

Hagen, that Spice Cake with Vanilla Crumb looks incredible! I would be so happy to find one of those one day. Just imagine having a couple pieces of that cake with an nice tall IPA or something! :)

Re: Yellow Pack HDR - Year 2000 DoP

Good point, Cavguy! I wonder if post-2006 production HDR's have trans-fats? They were in these fruit bars from this Yellow HDR, enough to keep them moist and preserved! They were tasty little apple chunks! :) You're welcome Rulerak! I hope noone is too upset I opened this thing! It was pretty expens...

80's Freeze Dried Fruit

I love the dehydrated fruit squares. Usually they are in perfect shape - as long as there aren't any pinholes, they are normally 100% the same as originally packaged. First off, I never rehydrate them - biting into some dehydrated pears, for instance.. hmmm! :) Here are 4 varieties that I will be pr...
