U.S. Jimmy Dean

Postby Herr_Braun » Sun Apr 12, 2009 11:33 am

I don't know why they call this thing as "Jimmy Dean".
It is not similiar to other military rations. But this is issued to U.S. Soldiers.

And Contents. Sorry for I didn't take pictures of individual item.

It has many items like below:
- 1 can of lemon iced tea
- 1 pack of long shaped bread
- 1 pack of peanut butter
- 1 pack of potato skins
- 1 cup of apple sauce
- 3 packs of peanut butter

- 1 pack of concord grape jelly
- 1 can of vienna sausages (made of beef, pork and chicken)
- 1 peppermint candy
- 1 accessory pack (Contains pepper, salt, plastic spoon, napkin, moist towellet)

Later I'll write the review about Republic of Korea Army Type III Self-heating ration or Type II Ration.

Herr_Braun welcome to the forums.
Those food packets are given in the bases by civilian contractors. They are good and also made as you saw of comercially available products. :D

Yea, but BYPAH, would'nt the the contractors rather have tortillas and bean dip or something like that? I don't think any illegal Mexicans would like the "Jimmy Dean", as shown. :twisted: 8) Gruss Gott, Herr_Braun

I used to regularly get meals like that brought out to the flight line while on active duty. We ate those when we could not take time to go to the mess hall. We called them bag nasties. They used to actually have a jimmy dean wrapper on the sandwich. They were not too bad.

I think I posted this on another thread. Back in 1999 the box lunches we had out in the field we actuall lunches made by Jimmy Dean themselves. They had two sandwhiches, chips, cookies, pudding or fruit, juice drink and a A-packet. Thought the menu's differ from one to another they were very delicious than the MRE's. :D

Since that time I've seen other varieties but for some reason the original Jimmy Deans box lunches are non-existant in the food supply system or contracted meals. Very odd, :?
