"chicken fajita" out of the case test 04/2010 is ok. but "chicken with dumplings" was much better :lol:

Hey i've never gotten one of those Beverage Bags. Is it something only in newer MRE's? (And by newer i mean 2005 and up)

they are in here from testdate 06/2008.

there is so many stuff to heat in the mre now. you need a second heater... one isnt enough.... (my mind)

before someone says it: yes - i have tried many ways....

I really want to try the chicken fajitas.. I need to crack one, being a Texan (and having a huge sense of entitlement because of it), I'm real interested to see what they've done with Mexican food. Most people don't get to eat at taquerias and have real mex food, which is the best, period. $2.50 for a burrito stuffed with pork, avocado, beans, and rice.. you can't beat it.. I'll have to eat there this week and take a pic of the food and then take a pic of the receipt if you've never eaten at one.

2,50 $ - thats a very good price... about 1,75 euro actually.

just out of interest: how costly i a big mac from mcdonals in the usa? here in germany its 3,30 euro (4,72 $)

Depends, usually around $3.00, $5.00 for the meal, I don't eat there too much, matter of fact, I probably eat McD's 2-3 times a year, so many better fast food places out there, but I understand it's one of the few international ones.

wow - 5 $ a meal.... we had 5 "deutsche mark" (2,50 Euro) a meal before the euro came - 2002.

we have other fastfood here too. maybe you have heard of the "döner kebap". germanys numer 1 fast food. tastes very good with extra hot spices :D i love it... (more than McD :wink: )

Heh, that looks better than any fast food I've ever eaten, period. No surprise really though, all our fast food is greasy crap. We need to eat more things with healthy veg, but no one but sandwich shops offer them. Unless you count lettuce tomato onion and pickle as healthy veg.
