Compiling IMP Menus

Post by Smitty » Thu Aug 01, 2019 10:20 pm

I've started compiling a list of the Canadian IMP Menus using Youtube, MRE Info, etc. Pardon the formatting, it's a work in progress so the "size to fit" might bug a few of the "spectacular" folks ;)

Let me know if you have any missing info.

All the best, Gents.

I had the menu list from 1995 from my IMP, but I think I accidently threw it away! I'll keep my eye out for it and post the list if I find it.

You're my one 1995 data point, Cortex, haha. Here's hoping you can find it.

Who would have thought 2005 would be so hard to find info for, haha. Guess it's only recently that we've had such access to these.

Sweet! I love databases such as these. Thank you for the work you are putting into this. I am very specific about which menus and years I choose. I hope this info may be added to this website in the menu's info section. I get disturbed when I order a ration and find out it does not contain what I expect it to contain. I do appreciate some countries SOP to change up the contents to keep soldiers from getting bored of the same menu's. I just don't understand why the US will nix items or menus that seem genuinely popular, and I wish they would look at some of the better rations from other countries and adopt some of the mains and components.

Just wanted to bump this. I've asked the Canadian Archives for any information they have on older IMPs, but still working that potential lead. In the meantime, I'm always on the lookout for more menu types.
All the best, Gents.

I have several cases of 1996 IMP's, so I can help with that year. I've been thinking of doing a 'memories of IMP's' type of topic for some time, sharing what info I can recall, from my experience in eating them, spanning from the late 80's to 90's IMPs.

What about just updating the IMP section of the motherpage this honored board belongs to?
