Canadian MRE
#1
I picked up a canadian mre in a horse trade of sorts. Here is a photo of the contents, it also came with a package of beans, franks and a package of cornbread. It also came with a long spoon, about like a long spoon from a ice cream shop. It was tasty.

You ain't supposed to eat the spoon. American solution to the long spoon is to open the package sideways :wink: - kinda like the Russian answer to a pen that writes in space/upside down is a pencil.

Yes and Canadian MREs have have added advantage of being described in french.
For instance a packet of potato soup, is described as soupe de pommes de terre.
Sounds much more appetizing don't you think?

this particular mre didn't come with a heating wafer. The Canadian mre are actually called imp, meaning ...individual meal packet...

Yes they have American heating wafers.
Canadian MREs look very tasty.
Anyone know the price?

If the toast tasted like spaghetti sauce, not so bad.  The other way around, not so much.   Big Grin

Generally when I ate Rat packs, (1988), we boiled the packages to heat them, or ate them cold. Lunch #5 had a coffee crisp, and the cherry cake was worth trading for.
