Re: Favorite ration smell?

Inside a vintage MRE acc packet. Reminds me of the King Kong ride at Universal Studios Orlando before it was torn down over 10 years ago. Industrial smell - can't put my finger on it.

I'd have to say that my favorite smell is a B-2 unit with crackers and cocoa beverage powder from the Vietnam War era. Something about the way the cocoa powder permeates the crackers....

Re: B1, B2 units

Check this place out. I haven't bought from here but they have some B units for sale. Looks like $10 a can which is a little more than I'd like to spend on a single can unless it's one I really want.

Re: 2016 Meal Cold Weather | US Ration

That brownie looks amazing! Loved the gloss shine on it. Nice review. Well done!

Re: Any combat sports fans?

I do like UFC. However I pretty much stopped watching after all the good fighters left. Like Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Randy Couture, BJ Penn

Date code Identification

Hi everyone, Hope you are all having a good day! Can anyone make out this date code. New to the MRE community. Haven't mastered the long codes yet. This pound cake, (61141) came with some rations from 1974. Just wondering if this is also from 1974 or if it is from another year. Thanks guys! - JT1991
