Today I opened a spare Cherry nut cake packed in 1986 I had laying around.
don't know how it have been stored before my storage but It was surprisingly good.

the nuts was a bit dark but not bitter, could taste the cherry's real nice so it was just like the old times :D

cheers ken
Ken,

Those nut cakes in my opinion were some of the best items ever included in MRE's. I was lucky enough to get a few from Steve awhile back, they were absolutely delicious! I think my favorites were as follows (in order):

1. Chocolate Nut Cake
2. Cherry Nut Cake
3. Maple Nut Cake

nice, and you got the Munch bar iv been looking for :D
I purchased a case of 1997 vegetarian only MREs (which was only a variation of two menus) and each MRE had a Munch bar in it. That's where it came from. They were all rancid; the peanuts were incredibly sour.
If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're bound to repeat them for the first time.

Oh wow! Sweet. My grandma used to make the best kompot, with apricots, sour cherries, and apples.

maybe half of my 1989 RAFCO stuff. The rest is in storage, I'll dig it out later.


Raspberry fruit soup, nut raisin mix, oatmeal and cookie bars and candy bars :D
On an impossible mission to get every ration ever :D

Looking for Vintage, rare and just plain strange items
