Gnarly. What I wanna know is, was he using the scoop or the end of the handle? :?: :?:
My bet would be on the handle. What a way to go! :shock:

Re: MCI Jam, Pineapple

That stuff is amazing when not corroded. Pulpy and sweet. Hopefully the next jam I get will be good. This is my 2nd jam with a pin hole. It came with peanut butter too, which is perfect. Haven't opened it since it's my only thing of PB. Once I get more PB I'll try it on some good ol' MCI crackers! :D

Re: Korean War B-3 Unit 1955 Date Code

The cookie has a very good chance of still being good - actually all of it does! No jam - and that is good. The jam corrodes and will burst over time - poisoning the rest of the contents and making it smell likes copper and rot. So yours is a great score. If it is one of those "Mother's" cookies, i...

Re: Datrex Emergency Rations

Yes. I keep the datrex bars in both vehicles, and in my camping gear. They are about like a thick cookie, crumbles real easy, strong hints of coconut. Tastewise I actually prefer the lemony flavor of the Mainstay bars, but the individual wrapping of the datrex bars tends to keep them the winner. I ...

MCI Jam, Pineapple

Hey everyone, I have some pineapple jam from one of my MCIs that had a pinhole in it. I sealed it with some superglue which worked, but alas, another pin hole formed. That being said, I decided to open it. Won't be taste testing the jam since it was leaking. Old jam just doesn't hold up. The acid in...

Datrex Emergency Rations

Hey everyone,

Just bought this for $8.50 at my local sporting goods store. A vacuum pack of Datrex Multi Purpose Emergency Rations. 18 bars, 3600 calories. Good for 5 years and I'm sure even longer if stored properly.

Have any of you had these or something similar?
Take care all.

2010 MRE Chili and Mac

Hi all, Today I received a 2010 MRE Menu 10 Chili and Mac. I'd like to share it with you all. Upon opening the bag, I noticed that something had leaked on the inside of the bag. However, there was no foul smell. I thought it was the chili and mac which would have been pretty disappointing. Turns out...

Re: Disappointed MCI Cigarettes

I know that feeling. I bought a circa 1960s MCI on eBay and paid a large sum for it too. The pics showed the MCI being completely unopened, everything intact and the seller described it as such. When I received it, I opened it up and lo and behold, the accessory packet had been torn open and the ci...

Disappointed MCI Cigarettes

Hey everyone, So I just received my first MCI containing cigarettes. I was on edge. Couldn't wait to get them. When I got them and opened the accessory pack, the cigarettes were crushed. Very disappointed. Not what I hoping being my first MCI with cigs. :cry: Hope everyone else is having a decent da...
