It was so good they fed that to our guys in the military in ww2. I was wondering why they stopped selling it and now you can only get it in a can bye Hormel or Castleberry. Just was thinking of it.thanks


Maybe you're thinking of this stuff, Jim: http://www.shopwell.com/buddig-corned-b ... 7740012743

Just a random link with a pic. I aint spammin (lol) that particular site. Those buddig meat products are great pack food. Not the healthiest, but if you sweat you need that salt back anyway..


Corned Beef is alive and well in Britain and it's former colonies. I've got a tin in my larder right now that requires a key (supplied) to crank it open.
They are the best!! The corned beef not the key or tin.

Found this in the Dollar Store the other day. They also have one other flavor, tomato something I prefer over the beef noodle sauce.

Not bad for making up your own meal kits. This time of year I start putting together meal kits along with knit caps, gloves, socks, toiletries, etc from the Goodwill or $1 store - package those with thrift store backpacks and pass them out to the homeless in the winter months rather than giving them money.

it's a good way for me to rotate out my older rations and closets as well.

I've tracked these down and tried a couple. Pretty good and may make a video on them. One thing for sure is they have a much shorter listed shelf life than the mil-spec pouches. But I have to say they were excellent. So good in fact the little lady took a few out of my haul for lunch.

So pretty interesting. Not sure how well they ship but I'd happily mail a few out to those who don't have them in their neck of the woods.

That's pretty awesome when you're on a tight budget and I'm a really tight budget right now and enjoy MRE coffee that's when I was so happy and excited when I found tasters choice and nescafe and of course in its freeze dried form at my local walmart
Vegetable crackers with peanut butter?
