I'd eat it. Even if they drugged it as a trap for Saddam Hussein, I'd still eat it.

Focus groups? For grunts? Aren't they a little more worried about getting shot by snipers or bombed by their own planes than about how tasty a pbj is???
But it's a perfect sandwitch to go with the $5,000 tolet seat.

Let's talk about making these "bad boys" edible as well as a mod for turning them into landmines and THEN we'll talk...

MRE's are yummy. :d
 
2002-10-29 10:10:48 AM
Beats the hell out of other MRE classics like: 1) Omlette(sp?) with ham. 2) Corned Beef w/hash. 3) Ham slice (seriously)

mmmmmmmmm....goodnes.

My friend in the Marines brought back a few MRE's from his stint in Norway. The food is not as bad as you'd think. Plus, you can make the packaging explode. The chemicals used in the heating pack can be mixed with water and explode...its pretty cool.
 
2002-10-29 10:13:51 AM
*yawn*

Old. ABC News did this story on the air months ago. Showed soldiers actually eating them, mostly Special Foces, who are trainined to have poker faces.

You could tell from the grimace that they sucked more than regular MREs.

Anybody ever eat dry Ramen? On second thought, strike that. Anybody ever eat dry Ramen when they weren't stoned?

Isn't this a repeat? I swear I heard this same story a couple months ago about the Army trying to develop an indestructible sandwich. But for some reason this hit the AP wires again today.

mmmm, indestructible sandwich...

Oh and for you non-Army farkers (or at least those of you who don't read Tom Clancy books)--the old joke is this--"Meals-Ready-to-Eat: 3 lies in one package".

Then again, who needs food when you have Vice City?
 
2002-10-29 10:14:51 AM
Yeah we ran a story on this last year I think. For some reason it's making the rounds in the media again today

See this i have never understood, you Americans have a go at us Brits cos we eat haggis, and jellied eels, and stargazer pie (don't ask, oh ok it's fish head pie from cornwall so called cos the heads look up at the stars) and then you go and put peanut butter and jam (and it's not jelly you fool, jelly you have with ice-cream) together in the same sandwich. That sounds so horrible.

CommieSheep, as a rule of thumb, Peanut butter and JELLY isn't synonymous with "canned botulism" - like Haggis, jellied eels and stargazer pie (whatever the fuuuck that is); as well as other delicacies like canned steak and kidney pie.

We'll keep the PB&J. You keep the blood-organ food.

2002-10-29 10:19:48 AM
CommieSheep There is a difference between jam and jelly. Jelly has more "gel" to it, and has no seeds. Jam usually is "looser" for lack of a better word, and has seeds in it. Your food is still disgusting, and PB&J means peanut butter and jelly to me, even though I like jam better.

I'd eat it. (sorry)

Forsythe P. Jones Actually, the more modern MREs are better than you would think. They do a lot of research to get a balanced meal that keeps well, and the ones they use now are generally pretty tasty. Some even have candy, and at least a few of them have a little tiny bottle of Tobasco in them.

``... we want it to act and feel like peanut butter.''

... and if it doesn't, it'll drop and give us 50.

``The trick was to get rid of the 6,000 mile extension cord to the freezer,'' said Jerry Darsch, who directs the Defense Department's feeding program in Natick, Mass.

Hell yeah, those guys in Natick Labs come up with lots of great stuff. I know a couple of people that work there.

b.) P B & J. not P&J

Dry Ramen is a nice snack, when you don't want to leave the computer. *cough* Not that I spend my whole day here at the comp... Yeah.
 
2002-10-29 10:29:15 AM
MRE's have had the dryest crackers science could provide and peanut butter for years. Other MRE's had jelly...so we traded to make a pb & j. There was also some killer cheese w/jalepeno peppers. And the candy consisted of Skittles, M&M's, and hard candies. And yes, the newer ones aren't that bad. Its the older 80's versions that are stomach turners.

Our firedepartment occasionally receives used pickups from our State DNR which are from the military. When we were setting up the latest one, I found one of those little bottles. I was wondering what the fark was up with such a little bottle, I didn't think it would be much use for chemical warfare (except for your passenger that has to smell your flatulence).

Ironbar:

That's the good ol' cold weather MRE. The food is dehydrated, and needs HOT water to be prepped. Don't ask me where the fark you're going to get hot water from in the field, I've sure never seen any.

I'd be much happier with some frozen ravioli.

give me a vegimite sandwitch anyday

Richardson says her team is closer than ever, and has found ways of stabilizing the peanut butter - but not without killing its stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth qualities, a sensation she says no soldier under fire should miss.

If I was under fire, would I give a SH*T about the Peanut Butter sticking to the roof of my mouth....

Sos: Oh,I don't doubt that nowadays..The first thing that popped into my head was what my dad called them in the AF back in the '60s. ;)
