Re: I'm the proud owner

There are 4 of them in an entrée pack.

They look like fingers.

They have a bad reputation for their side effects on the digestive tract.

Entree quality

I'd like some other opinions on this - Maybe I'm stating the obvious, but it seems to me that the foreign entrees that I've had so far (Canadian, Polish, Lithuanian, and French) have been far superior to the American entrees. I haven't had a bad American entrée, but they don't seem to have the same ...

Re: Polish S-RG-2

I had one of these for lunch today - the main entree was Mexican Chicken stew, but all of the other components were the same. A co-worker is of Polish ancestry, and is very interested in all things related to Poland, so he and I split this in the parking lot of our office building. This was absolute...

Re: Best U.S MRE menu?

I should add that the reason the Spaghetti and Cheese Tortellini meals don't appeal to me is because my wife is half Italian - and I'm used to GOOD pasta. Those two MRE meals are "Boyardee" pasta. I suppose they're okay if that's what you're used to (for which you have my pity.) And this is why I d...

Re: The 2014 Canadian IMP that almost killed me

You can see from the picture that bits of the dry bun were flaking off. One piece flaked off as I was taking a bite, and went partway down my throat, which caused me to cough. And of course, when you cough, you often breathe in deeply involuntarily, which was when a larger piece of the bun broke off...
