Chocolate Peanut Butter--source?

I'm looking for a source of the Chocolate Peanut Butter spread packets. The Epicenter used to carry them, but I guess they're out now...they haven't had them in stock for at least a couple months now. I need 2 dozen fresh ones. Does anyone know of another place that sells them?

Re: Best camo for the suburbs?

In a suburban environment, it would be best to wear solid, earth-toned colors like shades of browns/tans, greens, and grays. Outdoor clothing (like from REI, L.L. Bean, etc.) will not stick out as badly as military-like clothing (BDU's) if you have to "move among the masses", but that depends on you...

Re: best place to buy MRE food?

The Epicenter has been my "go-to" place for individual MRE components. Great selection and freshness. I'm just disappointed they're currently all out of the chocolate peanut butter! :cry: It seems like they'll have it for a while...then they sell out and not have it for a while...then they get it ba...

Re: Multicam uniform intel needed

Multicam is the most useless camo ever; I disagree. Maybe it's our different environments? Multicam works very well here in southern Florida. It blends well with several different environments here. EDIT: Here's a link to some photo tests, that I believe are from Germany. http://www.camotest.de/gal...

MRE Nutritional breakdown?

I know there's got to be a percentage "formula" somewhere...anybody know what it is, off-hand? The military doesn't just slap a bunch of stuff in a bag and call it a meal. I know there's a "science" behind it, and nutritional professionals running the show and making the calls. I'm specifically talk...

Re: Magnesium Fire Starter - Any Tips?

There are different "grades" of steel wool. The type that works the best for firestarting is 0000 type (also called " 4 ought "). The finer "filaments"/strands conduct the heat much better than thicker grades. You can get a 3-pack of firesteels for around $10 USD from here . These are nearly identic...

Re: GRANOLA WITH MILK & BLUEBERRIES

Great review...Thanks for sharing!

I would probably really enjoy that. I love anything with blueberries in it.

Was that part of an MRE you had, or an item you got seperately? I'd love to find a source for these!
