Re: Cheap "Pad Thai"

RabidWolf- I can speak to a couple of the items you saw on the shelf. The Kohinoor brand Indian stuff is always great. Retort pouches just like an MRE. Great shelf life. A bit thin, but a whole lot of flavor. I have three or four of them on my shelf right now. All of those Indian food retorts are ve...

Re: Cheap "Pad Thai"

I went through the DollarTree the other day and found that the same noodles were back in stock. I grabbed some, but I'm hoping that they might be a continuing, if sporadic, item. So, if you have $$Tree around, you might want to check. All that "take-away" box packaging can go in the trash to save sp...

Re: fun topic for the new year...

It seems that I'm not alone in liking the German Flecktarn. I'd love to have a tarp for my hammock in that pattern... And a hat... And a pair of pants... I suspect in order to get anything close over here I'll have to settle for the US Scorpion. However, there is something more "animal pelt" satisfa...

Re: Dutch Entree Ration: Chicken w/ Rice Ratatouille 2004 DoP

Dang that looks like a tasty meal.
I wish these foreign rations were more widely available. I really can't afford international costs & shipping for something as superfluous as my MRE fascination.
Somebody needs to get into import/export and start marketing these over here stateside.

They want you to eat MREs for 21 days straight and STILL expect to get a feces sample out of you??!
They were not overly specific about exactly HOW they were going to get the feces samples...

Slow no mo'

It seemed such a shame to continue to see the post title about how slow the site might've been back last spring, that I took it on myself to make a new post simply to get rid of it. Thank you for all the work that goes into maintaining this site, kman. I hope we will continue to grow and prosper int...

Re: British 24hr Ration - Menu 19 - Part 3 (Lunch)

rattattoo: Great series of reviews, I'm impatiently waiting on a good time to review the UK 24 Hour pack I have. Menu 3 I think. Kind of you to say, but RulerYak is the reviewer for the whole 24-hour/three-meal/three-part series, I just tagged in here. However, it will be great to see your take on ...

Re: The Christmas Elf Eats an IMP ["Beans"] for Breakfast Christmas Morn

RockyRaab- one of the other interesting things about New Englanders and baked beans is that they are a fairly common breakfast side. I guess that's part of the northeast's English heritage. Additionally, baked beans is a traditional side dish to go with codfish balls... These are a concoction of shr...

Re: Chinese PLA ration review

The small size of both the package and the portions makes me wonder if it is pumped up with things to increase the nutritional/caloric values, like whatever the Chinese equivalent of Brewer's yeast or wheat germ might be... perhaps soy concentrates. It is obviously not as varied in contents as our f...

Re: British 24hr Ration - Menu 19 - Part 3 (Lunch)

File_000 (15).jpeg If the ginger biscuits were anything like these McVitie's, they are indeed tasty. I have long preferred the British "biscuits" to American cookies. Same things, different names. However, I find that the British products are at least as, if not more, tasty than the American ones, ...
