Re: Indian MREs!!!!

Don't know which brand you found as your images are no longer displaying, but here's a couple more resources that I've found for commercially packaged retort items.

Re: Why Applesauce???

Even commercially packaged aseptic applesauce, like those in the 4 oz cups at the grocery store, can have an incredibly long shelf life. Picked some up recently that had a pull date that was over 2 years out. I'm just curious as to why (to me) this seems like one of the worst choices of food to intr...

I couldn't resist the price and added those reclaimed FRHs in a recent order from Epicenter about 3 weeks ago. Haven't had a chance to try any of them yet, but I received about 111 of them in my package with 3 of them being visually bad. One had the powder from heating component leaking, one might h...

Re: Pangea Bakery

Again, my apologies for bringing back an old thread, but Pangea is a brand name that is used by Caravan Trading of Union City CA. I believe that both Sterling and Caravan are current contractors for MRE baked goods. On a side note for anyone in the San Jose CA area, their Emergency Food Pack is curr...

Re: Mystery weiner...

Sorry to bring back such an old thread. Those Vienna Sausage packages in trays were produced by Hormel specifically for resale in jail commisaries where they don't like the "guests" to have access to metal objects. The side of the packing box is specifically marked as "Prison" I found those same ite...

Re: Jalapeno Kethcup

DSCP has a listing for some of the contractor resources listed on their site. Looks like the contractor for the Catsup, Jalapeno is located in the San Francisco Bay Area http://www.dscp.dla.mil/subs/rations/programs/mre/Z134-0011.pdf Sounds good! Has anyone tried it? Has anyone found a source for th...

It sounds like those supplies may have been shelf stable meal kits assembled from commercially available products that several small companies throughout the US package for purposes like the Senior Meals on Wheels program, disaster relief, and like the shelf stable meal kits that Sunmeadow assembles...

I think the problem is just in the packaging from McIlhenny. I've acquired a number of these miniture bottles over the years both from MRE packages and from commercial resources, like restaurants. I've had some bottles just "evaporate" while sealed and standing upright. Older bottles have just oxidi...
