Japanese stick rice rations

Hey all, I thought you might want to check out these Japanese rations for sale right now on eBay. I had never heard of them before but they are various flavored rices. From what I have found out about them so far, they seem to only be made for government use. Has anyone seen these before? https://ww...

Thai MRE Menu 4

After about a year of searching I finally found out that Thai MRE menu 4 is green curry with chicken. Sadly, the guy doesn't show the actual curry and rice, but you can see that there are many updates to this new menu. The amount of rice has been lowered from 300 grams to 250, and the curry increase...

Re: JSDF Combat Ration type II Menu 4 - Beef Ham Steak

I'm trying to figure out what "beef ham" is? Is it beef that is just cured like ham? Is it ham cut thick like a steak?

Re: Items you wish were mre but never have and or never will be one

It isn't really suitable for MRE's, but I did come across this retort pouch sashimi recently. They come in sets of 3, with vitamins added for about $10: tuna with vitamin C, salmon with b6, and shrimp with b12. It looks like they need to be frozen even in the special packaging though. https://kaisho...

Thai Army MRE Menu 3 - Chicken Yellow Curry

I checked out the third Thai MRE. I did a side by side comparison with a retail retort yellow curry as well.

Re: Thai MRE Menu 1 and 2

The guy who sells them has all 4 up with "buy it now" on ebay. $54 USD shipped. I'm interested to hear more people's opinions, especially on the rice. In the menu 3 video I'm doing now I compare it to a super cheap retort curry.

Re: Thai MRE Menu 1 and 2

You know it's funny you mention that, I just ate a Japanese ration a few days ago for the first time and am making a video on it now. The rice is much, much better in that one, even though it is a year and a half past the best before date. Other than Thai stuff, Japanese curry is probably my favorit...

Re: Thai MRE Menu 1 and 2

There are definitely better options given how much you will probably have to pay to get these. I wonder though if they would taste different if they were fresh. The ones I have seem to have spent a lot of time at very hot temperatures. They may have been much more flavorful at one point. Thanks for ...

Re: Royal Thai Army MRE's

Hey Leutnant129, thanks for the reply. I can certainly see why the soldiers don't like it. I have been wondering why they exist to be honest. Other than the rice and curry, all the things in the package are retail items. So I wonder why CPF wouldn't just put their normal retail meals inside too. The...

Re: Royal Thai Army MRE's

I wish I could say they were tasty. They both seemed like they had almost the same sauce, even though those too curries should have very different tastes. I'll look around for some sort of public relations address for the army or something I guess. I've asked a few friends in the country for help, b...
