Because everything tastes good when you're hungry!
How many of them have you seen until now? What was the newest ration you have seen? I've seen 2013. this kind of boxed ration. Maybe there was newer productions, but that's something I didn't see here or on other parts of internet.

So this is 2018. ration, that's written with what a - marker?
Read my post on the Selling page from 2 weeks ago..
These are super fresh (bar date is 8153 ..produced in May 2018)....the bars were specially produced for me extra during new govt order production.(every 2 years) I also ordered some new boxes, the boxes were made for me also (The rest of them are being packed in a few months for the military order that was placed.).. They rushed the boxes so they could get them out in time to ship with my cornflake bars..They hand marked a few of the boxes so I know what the date was.. As this was done for me as a favor for personal use. I actually already ordered a stamp to make them official. Yes the last batch i have seen was 2013 also... I worked on this for over a year to make it happen. Only time you will ever see these before they are even made for govt, haha..let alone years later when they pop up. I got the first set of boxes made with these dates...
Compared to other rations I've seen around with stamped date code like this one here
Also, few years back I got a "pilot's ration" from US pilots flying in and out of Croatia. Saying it's their actual survival ration. Difference is visible.
So I'm just asking this is a MRE forum, something where people should share informations and knowledge. Something missing here for a long time now. So who knows stuff to share a bit knowledge about this kind of survival rations?

As for other information can you please explain, the last batch of these ration in a box was 2013. I never seen a new one and you say you never seen one. Nobody stepped up and told he got a newer one. Another design is in use from 2013. packed in military grade foil ( https://i.imgur.com/MQihB6X.jpg ), I got 2 of those from your American military pilots - they said this is the survival ration. If they order every 2 years what did they ordered in 2015. and 2017.? And why are they bringing back this older version packed in a box as official one in 2019.?
Or just a shorter question, what is the issued survival ration (today) the boxed one or the foil bag one (or both) and is there any evidence available somewhere? I got my rations in late 2016. made in 2013 with 5 years shelf .
The "some guy" that Drew spoke to was someone from the manufacturer, who I would assume would know what they are talking about.Asger wrote: ↑Sun Aug 19, 2018 6:30 amWell that still didn't answer anything. If they stopped making these rations in 2013. why are they bringing them back in 2019. and what should I tell to someone asking are they real or not? Drew told me some guy told him the military just ordered them?
And yeah there is this new ration pilots are using, but we all think they are making new FPSGP even nobody has seen them.
