Worst as in freedom of choice ;) there are only 3 rations. (6 entrees) that's not much..
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

You have no choice in what EPa type you will get. A case allways contains 6 EPas of same type. The only choice you have is: "What entree out of it will I have for lunch and what for dinner?" :mrgreen:

I know, and that's exactly the reason why I think they have the worst choice in menus ;)
They should put in an mix aswell. "See what you get" instead of three types.
The makers of the new EPa made civil meals in the same pack aswell right? If so, it wouldn't cost that much more per EPa. It might even make it cheaper. They will only need óne kind of cartboard box instead of 3, and they do not need to run different production runs for every type. They will just have to buy different meals and put it in the boxes randomly.

The maker of the civil entrees (Buss) don´t make the military entrees anymore.

The box is the same, just the printing is different.
A randomly filling makes it impossible to give away porkless or vegetarian on purpose!

True, didn't think of that.. (I love being simple by eating just about anything)
But the most of the other arguments still go. It would not cost much more then now I think. That it would be cheaper is a risky argument.
