Re: Unwanted or extra stock

Are you in the US? I will assume so. Everything from EBay, MRENation, go-armynavy.com, foreignmre.com, allmres.com, etc, you should be able to get a fresh and delicious MRE for less than $15 bucks. Considering what's in them, and the calories alone, that's some bang for your buck right there. I woul...

2008 vs 2018

Hello, I'm curious if anyone has noticed a difference in the overlapping bag design years. Date codes only representing the last number of the year are bound to cause confusion in the hobby. Heck, what little US MREs I've had, I've eaten a 2008 that I thought was a 2018 until I checked the item list...

Re: Anyone ever try the Country Captain Chicken?

At the meet up, both Shawker and I were pleasantly surprised that we both really enjoyed a 03 CCC. I’d love to try a fresh one...and that 03 was not in great shape.

Re: MRE Meet Up 2019 - Simpsonville, KY - Photos

Totally, I got to buy me both of these books. Soon! I'm still kind of "coming down" from the whole experience. It definitely took me a few days to just process it all. I am looking forward to another chance though. Not sure about the March one, but Vegas has cheap flights! ;) Renee posted this: http...

Our soldiers apparently still not good enough for a pepper pack though LOL.
Amen. Older IMP's had pepper, but again, someone decided that they didn't much care to provide it.

Re: MRE Meet Up 2019 - Simpsonville, KY - Photos

Hahah! yeah I guess I should have provided a little more context before using that. Some folks spell it Koozie, which I suppose is the right spelling of the original brand who marketed it. Wikipedia has a veritable litany of other names these things go by. I've never even known. Anyway, with Rocky's...

Re: Really want to try Canadian IMP!!!

There is no complete menu list for 2019s. I've begun to compile menu types and numbers but haven't even begun to consider full IMP lists similar to what is on MREInfo. There are several IMP19 reviews out. BTemple, CT, Mickey Joe, and myself have done some of the lunch menus (Case B). Case A and C ar...

Luckily, Rocky Raab came out swinging at the MRE meet up and delivered this awesome little presentation.
