Re: Eating 31 year old cookie bar, chocolate covered.

It's always cool seeing how well these things can be preserved. Glad your MRE was entirely edible and I hope the rest of the case follows suit.

Re: 2018 IMP Lunch cases starting to trickle out

In an interesting turn of events, they replaced the Crunchy BBQ Mix with Beef Jerky in the 2018 Chili IMP. Didn't think that would happen. Still no jam which makes for a dry peanut butter sandwich. https://i.imgur.com/3nLifCV.jpg?1 EDIT : Rather than make a new post and bumping this thread, I'll add...

Re: Contest Alert! Tasting Canadian 2014 Baked Beans

It's interesting to see how different IMPs were even 4 years ago. Baked Beans is a great menu though I find it a bit too sweet. Just one Frank's Red Hot isn't enough to cut the richness for me. Admittedly I do like my rations spicy though :P.

Re: 2018 IMP Lunch cases starting to trickle out

Little update on the menus. Pulled Pork was identical to 2017. Smoked Meat with Mustard Sauce however... https://i.imgur.com/2FVUwqy.jpg?1 - The mustard packet has been removed, makes sense considering the meat is already in a mustard sauce. - The chocolate drink mix has been replaced by a vanilla d...

Re: 2018 IMP Lunch cases starting to trickle out

They contact the armed forces directly who sell them as surplus. Simples *ruh* (meerkat humour). Anywho it's actually a lot of paperwork I'm told but once you're approved you have something like a 5 year window to make inquiries around inventory available and purchase it direct from the military.

Re: 2018 IMP Lunch cases starting to trickle out

Interesting. Do you have a connection to the Canadian Armed Forces, or did you find these in the civilian world? It is a pain how difficult the can be to get down here in the US. I had a source and got several at a very good price, but when they got more in and I tried to order a case, they decided...

2018 IMP Lunch cases starting to trickle out

Recently picked up a couple cases. Main courses and overall menus are identical to the 2017 Lunch options with a few minor additions and replacements to minor items such as the nut mixes. The three duplicated menus were Chicken and Vegetable Stew, Beef Macaroni and Pulled Pork. The only "noticeable"...
