Your MRE reviews have been an enormous help to me, particularly when I started my big preps overhaul four years ago.
I've updated the separate data summary table:
The actual kit rows are now colored, and the merely "interesting" for reference items are plain.
I've also added a row for cheap canned spaghetti. It also beats Wise, both price and "space efficiency", um, wise.
And now, for a completely new "Nutritional Quality" data table page (using the original table from the huge page):
I kept it simple, to focus just on the most important data for the key kits.
Yet again, the AlpineAire stuff beats both the Wise and Augason buckets.
If anyone is interested, I can add trans fat.
I'm pretty sure it will be much higher for the stuff that is high in sodium & low in protein/fiber.
I'll probably add entries for the aPacks and Backpacker's Pantry.
If/when I buy the Mountain House 7-day kit, I'll definitely add it.
I'm a lifelong root beer and ginger ale drinker.dirtbag wrote:Yeah, Barks has a bite (Pun intended).
Not much for root beer, though.
Vernors used to have more bite, but I think they switched from real sugar to that syrup stuff, changed the taste.
I haven't had Vernors in a while, mainly because the local grocery store rarely has sales on it. I vaguely recall that the last time I had any, it seemed to have less "kick". Thanks for the sanity check and explanation! That's a big part of why I usually drink "Throwback" - it uses sugar instead of high-fructose-corn-syrup. I wish they would make a non-HFCS version of "Code Red", my favorite Dew!
