I really like those "Emmy eats MRE" videos, they are quite funny. :)

The prim and proper nibbling off of clean trays is rather amusing.

It is only a part of ration pack however, it is missing a lot of things - coffee, heater, water purification tablets, chocolate, crackers (more like old style hard-tack, nickname "plocice" as an association to ceramic tiles.) etc.There were 4 main menus and some variations.

 

Back in 2006-7 it was still pretty much the same, and that SPAM (made in 1990) was still good, way better then commercial version that is still available, military version had much less water and salt and much more good meat taste.

 

Sardines were universally hated, unless you had some onion to go with them. Alternative to sardines was a liver pate or a butter and jam or can of tuna (my father hated tuna with a passion, due the some fuckup for 40 something days on terrain they got only tuna in every single ration pack... Everything else was mixed, but that can (used for breakfast usually) was only tuna....

Powdered drink was horrible. Pate was OK (I am not a fan of pates), fruit/raisin bar great, SPAM was good if hot and passable if cold, beans with smoked ham great. Pepermint candies can double as fire starters as long as they are dry (they are pure sugar/menthol mix w/o any add-on so pretty flammable).
