Civilian Ration Comparison

Post by Smitty » Thu Sep 17, 2020 9:42 am

My good buddy Canadian Trucker put out this video. A good comparison of civilian MRE cases.

All the best, Gents.

A little surprised he didn't add Minotaur Trading Co. into the mix, but either way very informative and a video we all needed. I was also surprised how similar the Meal Kit Supply contents are to the US military's; I would not have expected theirs to be one of the closest in comparison but given the price point I guess it makes sense.
What did the sick casket say to the other sick casket?..
"that you coffin?"

Korey you got that right
most wanted: RCIR, MCI/B units, IMPs, anything old, and a packet or two of RAFCO soup. PM if you've got these, or anything else to sell that isn't too expensive.

I think because Bob hasn't offered a case for awhile. Not since MRENation, and the stock of those were running low mid 2019.

Are you sure? I swear they're available on the MTC website for 139.95 but I recently saw someone unbox one and it was mostly multiple pizza menus and other relatively boring ones like beef stew or something, so maybe that's why he didn't lol.

What does this mean about MRENation? I bought a case of MRENation rations from them just last month. I think I'm missing something.

What meals did you get? Everything is sold out now but on my check ins, there’s been only a few meals here and there. It looks like beef ravioli and PB&J

In 2019, the world was your oyster.
All the best, Gents.
