How often do they mess up?

I was opening a Case of 12 #A Menus 1-12 and pouches was opened and the cheese spread spoiled. However the box was sealed and the strap was still on it. Straight off of camp pendleton.

Re: Type I - Type II - Tasters Choice, What's the difference?

Hey Simon, In a relatively quick answer I'd say the old spray dried "Coffee Instant" type 1 and 2 are very similar. A somewhat acidic coffee measured for 8 oz. The 2.5 gram net ones I find taste best in about 9 oz of water. Has a little bit of a cheap chicory flavor to them. Type II is bolder & dar...

I'm looking for some good ol' C-rations

Hey there everyone! I am looking for some old C-rations to review, because I would love to see what they were all about. I personally don't really care how old they are, and they don't have to be from any specific time period, any C-ration would do. I would love it un-opened, and I don't really mind...
