Hey Guys, Just took a look at the Quatermaster Web Page, and I was surprised that most of the comments or predictions as far as meals go weren't to far off in the near future. :o I was wondering which meals they kept and which ones they scraped? I would be curious to find out some of the reasons of ...

Hey, I looked at most of those reviews and some are a bunch of civilians and some are military. I can relate to some of the reviews but not all of them. Some of those civilians sound like they were forced to choke down the meals. Why don't they come over here and try living on them for a year! :x I ...

Kman, Hmmm...Yes, good point. Althought I wonder if Zestotherm was the original manufacturer of the FRH's? I was in back in 1991 when the first ones arrived, though I wonder if some other contractor got a bid in to make FRH's as well and what I saw the other day was a relic from yesteryear. I did fo...

Kman, Could have been I tried to sell some back in Fall 2003. Though I don't think my price was that high! I had a deal where you could say buy three of the LMC's for like $12.00 or starting price was $9.99. Even with that pricing people still didn't want to but them until I came down to $5.99 for t...

Hey Guys, I was wondering when somebody might open this thread up, so I have a question. I was opening up some MRE's yesterday and I noticed two distinct FRH's both dated 2001, but one was in a lime green package with the paper wedge blocks in it and another with just a big block of Hydrogen compoun...

Kman, Yes, the LMC (sorry). I had an excellent opportunity, about two years ago, to purchase 12 of these meals at a local surplus store near my hometown. Now the guy running the store thought these were US LRRP rations but he didn't know how much he wanted to charge so we agreed on a price of about ...

Hey does anybody know how to get a good deal on Canadian IMC's or those rare LMC's? Besides ebay I haven't seen any for sale, and it wasn't long ago that you could get a few of them for a great price even with the exchange rate. I would love to get my hands on a few, for hunting season when I get ba...

Hey guys, Here is my take on the dream MRE. Especially from a solider downrange in the sandbox. First start with the A-packet: get rid of the lemon tea packet; give it to the Brits or something. Keep the seasonings; lose the salt, put more toilet paper in, and some hard candies like life savers for ...

Kman, Thanks for the posting on the Castleberry's. I guess if I do find something like that or a Big Lots I will have to stop by and check it out. As for my story. Well that was the rumor back then, and "yes" I believe that the gov't was trying to keep soldiers from swiping cases to re-sell out on t...
