Oh no, the old ones are without pork! That'd be awesome if you could send a few over, I love pea soup and I thought those little tubes looked like a good quick solution, I wish I could get them here locally and I wish they had a little longer shelf life.

Repo Rations carry's Erbswurst under their Emergency Survival Gear and GermanShop24.com carry's it at $3.87 per 4/76 ounce roll with Fed Ex charging $13.95 for shipping up to 2kg, provided they don't throw your package over your locked gate and almost kill your dog like they did with a vacumn cleaner that I once had delivered, so I recommend buying more than one roll. Repo Rations charges about #10.95 per roll and uses preminium shipping so I wouldn't go with them.

FWIW I picked up a few rolls off of ebay.de in 2008. Good stuff, great seller, I'd have to look to see who it was though it's been so long. I do need to get some more, something I hadn't thought about in a while.

I may be mistaken on this housil, but it seems that your gov't has no problem with civilians buying military rations, which is how it should be----unlike here in the U.S., where MREs have the warning about commercial resale being illegal. I could not believe how many MREs were wasted while I was in the military.

Back in cold war times up to ~1995 we could officialy buy EPa´s at the quartermaster for five bucks each. That´s where I bought my first 10 cases with 40 EPas (and still have them today!)
But from post cold war we can´t buy regular military rations anymore as they decreased the storage capacity as there is no need for such a hugh stock keeping. If a soldier don´t eat his ration(s) he got on duty, don´t eat them because they don´tlike them and sale the e.g at ebay, it´s OK.

If you sale a whole case that you "took" from the quartermaster or "dropped from a truck" that´s "ordinary fencing" (dealing with stolen goods) and also illegal. But ours don´t have a warning on like the US MREs.

What we can regular buy are the EPa entrees as they increased the EPa type from 3 up to 19 and using the manufacturers commercial entrees from now too. This entrees are available at "every" supermarket, same with the canned bread, just a different size (250g instead of 150g) and no printing.
