Re: Multi MRE Tast test

Thanks for the compliments. Yeah the cornbread texture was exactly like re-fried beans. Its interesting that they don't use regular dry stuffing mix like the ones that come out around thanksgiving. Maybe it would be more appropriate for the cold weather rations since those require boiling water.

Re: Recipe for Iron Ration?

I've wondered about this ration for a while too. I found regarding parched wheat, a blog that talks about a parching wheat for a coffee substitute. http://bisonsurvivalblog.blogspot.com/2007/02/wheat-meat.html One of the comments recommends sprouting the wheat before parching and grinding. This blog...

Re: Good deal?

To me a good deal is what Kman says on the buying MRE's section of the MREInfo: $40-50 + $20 shipping. I'm sticking to that.

Re: Salmonella Poisoning Prompts MRE Dairy Shake Recall

I got loose Dairyshakes with date codes starting with 5000 range and 1 in 6000 range. They are marked as made by Jianas Brothers Packaging Company. Kansas City, MO 64108. Are they part of the recall? I guess so since the recommendation was all dairy shakes? Would they just be a packager and not a ma...

Re: Modular Operational Ration Enhancement (MORE)

Talk about a waste of money. That whole program probably cost billions. They could have just put MORE in the basic MRE's. Or shipped them MRE C's :wink:

Re: Space food on Ebay.

Hmmmm. That wouldn't be hard to fake. I wonder if its real. Velcro dots can be found anywhere. MS word can print bar coded labels. I made some up for a party with foodsaver bags and labels that looked pretty authentic.
