Case A Menu 11 Vegetable crumbles continued

Continued... Something that was totally new to me was the wet fruit. I think that the wet fruit is definitely one of those things that is a luxury that probably doesn't last very long. Anyways I was very exited to try it. It looked almost like a little bowl of apple sauce, just with different types ...

Re: 2012 menu 18 beef ravioli

The plastic type ones are what I'm looking for. In that color exactly actually. Though the canteen cup would be fine too. Just something better than a water bottle lol. I'd surely appreciate it. The closest surplus store to me is around 3 to 3 and half hours away and they're more of a camping suppl...

Re: 2012 menu 18 beef ravioli

Loving these reviews, basementcat! To really spice up some of those MRE entrees, some good old chili powder is better. But so many times we're given tobasco which really isn't always the best thing for them. That vinegar is enough to make ya cough if you catch the wrong whiff of it. US MRE drink mi...

Re: 2012 menu 18 beef ravioli

Great job on your review, I do like that Tabasco sauce, but personally chili powder gives me the flavor I need. Other than that it looked like a great meal!
Have a good one

Re: 2015 Case A Menu 7

Nice Work!! In your picture of the brisket that is the entire entree by itself? I ate one of these from a 2015 case and it was mostly gravy with some chipped beef in it. Looked much different than yours. I agree on the garlic potatoes, the have a very strong artificial garlic flavor that I found of...

2015 Case A Menu 7 Continued

Continued... The brisket had a pleasent gravy smell to it, with a weird sour undertone which I was not so fond off. On the first bit my first impression was rubber. The entire hunk of meat had this awful rubbery texture to it, granted the flavor was spectacular, undertones of spices, lemons, salt, a...

Beverage base power + carbonated water? Awful

Mixed it with some carbonated water, with my favorite drink mix and low and behold....I destroyed it entirely! Don't even try it, tastes awful, feels awful. Imagine drinking a bubbly gatorade, that burns as it goes down. Not great especially when you are looking to re-hydrate yourself. Stick with no...
