One of the items in this pic looks familiar huh? It came from here: http://www.collectspace.com/news/news-112306a.html Google space food images and all kinds of goodies come up. Space food flown or not must be really hard for collectors to come by. I remember playing astronaut as a kid and my Mom ma...

I got some Seven oceans rations on order to try. Compact also make the BP-5 disaster relief ration.

Wow. Where did mreheater72 find a case of these? I really like this ration. Considering that it has a similar shelf life & resistance to heat to Mainstay Bars, the GP-1 has a variety of flavors. I think this is psychologically important. The wintergreen tablet in the GP-1 Improved is a bar shaped li...
