Had my first Canadian IMP. I WANT MORE!!!!!!!!

Post by Demolition_Man » Wed Jun 09, 2021 1:56 pm

Wow, what a treat. Yesterday I finally got to try out my first IMP, a 2018 #12 Pulled Pork. EVERYTHING in it was great. All I have left are the tic tacs. It's so funny that it's so similar in composition to the MRE but every component is at least ten times better than its' US counterpart, from main course to snacks to dessert to drinks. Incredible. Maybe I was just lucky to have tried the best of the lot, but still, for a ration, this ranks now with Norway to take top spot on my taste list.

I have a Shepherd's Pie left. Then I need MORE!!!
Military rations I have...
tested: Germany, USA, UK, France, Norway, Canada
acquired but yet to try: Australia, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia, Russia (Mountain, IRP), Ukraine

Shepards pie is bland, until you add the ketchup they give you. then its a world of flavour

Where did you find them? It seems everyone wants fifty bucks for one of them. Seems too steep for me.

IMPs are great, for sure! Literally the only downside of them is the fact that they don't come with a heating method. The drink pouches are amazing. Why can't the US copy that design?
