ISO ration containing cigarettes and canned items!

Post by Fallout420 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 1:27 pm

Looking to buy older items containing cigarettes. This can include just the sealed accessory packet, a complete RCI, C rat, etc. Let me know what you have and what you’re looking to get for it, thanks!

Also looking for sealed canned ration items from 1960 and before, anything and everything!

You should check out Crazy Russian Hacker on YT. He buys boxes of MREs from that era. Goes through the accessory packs for cigs and tosses the rest.

Probably just loves to smoke the cigarettes. From watching Steve1989 I gather the tobacco is aged and has a deeper, better flavor that cannot be compared to fresh cigarettes and the formulas they use to make them these days. They are a special treat for smokers. I'm told that while the bright color is lost to a brown complexion, the Tabasco sauce ages as well and is not spoiled, and yet not the same and must be tried.

Seems like a waste to me! But he paid for it so I suppose he can do whatever he likes with the rations lol. And I’ve heard Steve say the same about the cigarettes being better with that much age on them, never had one myself though

.... I smoked recently a few 4 packs from vietnam MCI accessory packets. The cigs ARE STRONG as heck!

However they left my tongue raw for a few days after so I wont be doing that EVER again!
