    Smile MREs HUH.

    You young whipper snappers. Why back in my day we ate out of a can. P-38 races to see who could open the can the fastest. Cooking our food over C-4. Beans and franks. Turkey that tasted like like Oh God I'm getting sick thinking about it.

    MRE: stands for "Meals Rejected by Ethiopians".


    Beef Frankfurters...The FOUR FINGERS OF DEATH!!! Also, vegetarian MREs. WTF???? They're usually the nastiest of all.

    yea our new ones aint got those stress releiving smokes. (i used to smoke) but that dont matter much to me. no "john wayne" bars we got the oorah/hoorah bars depends on which side you look at. Hard tack? nope. we got regular crackers and vegtable crackers. yep still got the disolvable coffee with sugar and cream to add in. and then the 2 lil chicklets of either mint/or cinamongun. occasionaly skittles, plain/peanut/peanutbutter m&m's, tootsie rolls. cobler. jam/peanut butter. a flavored drink mix, or dairy shake mix. lemon poppy seed/ spice pound cake, brownie, cookies. yep our "mre's" have definatly changed. and oh the variety of meals and combos. but regardless they still taste like shit and plug up rearend.

    I actually like a lot of the MRE stuff, Although I will grant that if fed a steady diet of the stuff I would probably not look forward to Dinner.

    C and K rats, never tried them. But have heard stories from my Dad (WWII) and a Marine friend (Vietnam). They both agree the Ham and Lima Beans was the worst tasting stuff to ever be canned. Something about feeding it to a POW would result in a war crimes charge? The funny thing is my Marine friend swears the C rats he was issued had WWII era dates on them..........
