One of these days, maybe I'll get around to my Russian review...

Re: Airlines & MREs w/Heaters in Checked Luggage

Don't think I would try and use the FRH on a flight, though--people will probably think you're trying to set off a bomb or something.

Re: Best BlackDogBob Sale Ever!!! Grab Bag!

Got a Canadian IMP (love those!), plus two other items that I'm not familiar with. A Sopacko MORE, that looks something like a First Strike Ration, and a three-course ration that appears to be made in Russia; the only thing I was able to decode was an email address ending in .ru http://www.hsiprodsv...

Re: Reliable Ebayer in Poland

Yep, I got one but didn't eat it right away--opened it a couple of months later and was greeted with the smell of death :(

Didn't even bother cleaning anything, the smell was so strong that it went straight into the trash.

Re: Menu number 24, meat loaf and gravy. Questions.

If you had an outer bag with a "graphic" design like the ones in the header at the top of the forum page, it would have been 2011. If it was tan, and had the classic soldier logo and mostly plain text, you have a 2001 Meatloaf. Only using a single digit for the year with the Julian date co...

Re: Best U.S MRE menu?

I haven't had some of the more recent menus (most of the ones I've eaten are 2012 and earlier) but I quite like the Southwest Beef and Black Beans. Other classic standbys include the Beef Stew, Chili with Beans, BBQ Pork Rib, Chili Mac, and Cheese Tortellini in Tomato Sauce.

Canadian IMP Thoughts

Sorry, no pictures; I always think about doing a proper "review" video, but never seem to get around to it. Instead, I bring you my thoughts in a text-based manner. I picked up a trio of Canadian IMPs from BlackDogBob, which are the first that I've ever tried. I must say that I'm quite imp...

Re: Wheat snack bread - What is that aftertaste?

I always pass on the stuff, can't stand that nasty preservative taste. I much prefer the tortillas, or vegetable crackers.

Re: Russian Ration Identification ?

That can-opener looks pretty stout for what's ostensibly a disposable item.
