Army should recover some of the first meals !

Post by Imon » Mon Aug 22, 2005 2:37 pm

I wish the Army recover some of the first old meals:

my favorites :

Beef frankfurters
Beans with tomato sauce (great !
Ham slices
Beef slices in BBQ sauce

sweet favorites:

Chelly bar (fruit gums)
--> just at the start of the MREs inside the accessory packet and only for a short time
Brownie chocolate coverd
Mars bar --> also just for a little time in the accessory packet,I think later than chelly bar.
Nacho chips --> they were so tasty,
Marple nut cake

---> I realy dont understand why these meals and sweets were removed :(

Oh yes, sure, I meant Jelly bar and Marble Nut cake....
always these english words :wink:

@DIRTYDAVE :

Didnt you tried these meals and sweets I listed below?
I ate them often with the first brown MREs after the army changed from C-ration to MREs.

I think a lot of meals and sweets are better with the current MREs but there are also some Meals and sweets from the first MREs which I miss !

No, I only ate one of the MRE meals that came in the dark brown bag and that was back in around 1990 or so. I only this past year got back into MREs so I missed out on all the goodies like the marble nut cake.

They need to bring back Pork with rice in BBQ sauce. That is my all time favorite.

How about Ham and Chicken Loaf while you're at it. The only one they should bring back is Frankfurters(beef or ?) Looks like they are trying to bring back some anyway. Omelets, and some kind of Sloppy joe which I have'nt tryed yet, but I figure it will not be unlike the Beef with Spiced sauce. Hope it won't run off the crackers so easily, and make a stain on my BDU pants leg now. LOL 8)

"Marble" nut cake? It was maple nut cake.

I loved the Chicken ala King entree. (Never thought you'd hear anyone say that, did you?)

As I use regular Ragout Fin, add some mushrooms and peas, I get some "home made" Chicken a la King :wink:
