Re: Dream Menu

Stole my pick Nate! Perhaps a slaw or a kimchee.
Mmmmm kim chee. Has anyone come across that in ROK or Chinese rations? I'd be curious if that can be in a ration as it is pickled.

Dream Menu

After reading about MRE pizza here's an interesting idea -- if you could have one kind of civilian food in an MRE that doesn't exist (or does but is crappy) what would it be?

As weird as this sounds mine would be a salad. Fresh veg or something like that.

MRE Dating

So, another newbie question -- how do you date MREs?

I know the general scheme - 5186 would be the 186th day, but what about the year? It could be 2005, 2015, even 1995.

I assume the menu number and content would help you date it?

Re: Newbie Question -- MRE Predictability

I hope your adventure is filled with Coffee Instants!
Me too! Are there any guarantees with breakfast menus? I would assume they would usually come with coffee?

Newbie Question -- MRE Predictability

The title more or less says it all -- How predictable are US MREs?

I'd likes to get into reviewing, so if I get say, Menu 5, will I always get the same mains and sides?

Moreover, does every US MRE come with coffe? I got Lemon Tuna a few weeks back with no coffee or matches.
