MCW Menu 3 Short review

Post by LaSwede » Thu Jul 05, 2018 3:50 am

Yesterday I had to break into my ration stash at work, being to lazy to make a lunchbox the day before :)


The lucky ration was a menu 3, MCW (My first MCW, thereof the short review :) ).

The composition was alright! A plus to the toasted corn kernels which was nice to munch on the rest of the day (was suprised on how many there were inside, lasted the rest of the day), and the addition of tabasco sauce(Want hot sauce for every meal!).

The lack of an isotonic drink or beverage base took the grade down a little. Would like to see something similiar to the norwegian "Regia Solbaer" which was very nice to have prepared hot during a march in cold weather.

For starters I hade the crackers with bacon cheese spread, the cheesespread tasted a little funny. Still i ate it all, and survived :)

While waiting for the main meal to rehydrate I took some M&M's. They were way way off in flavour, felt like eating really dry dirt.

A very large meal, made the regular MRE main meal look like a kids portioned meal.

The only dessert that was left were the Irish cream cappuccino, but it was way way too sweet and weak in coffee flavor. I should not be listen to though when it comes to coffee. Being a coffee loving Scandinavian I drink really dark and flavorful coffee. I usually take 4-5 satches of coffee in a single cup, that gives you an idea of how I am :lol:

The components were manufactured in 2012. And I have no idea about the storage, recently bought it! :)
