Cool find!

Sounds like your dad has some jokes

It really wasn't horrible, but remember most items are lacking any kind of moisture. So the flavor is pretty off from normal.

Hey, I think he ate some food that was (ahem) 50 years earlier than those...

Like the other guy stated, early version of MRE that was upgraded in the 90's with better quality and menu. I ate a lot of them in Germany 83-85, Chicken-ala-King was my fav. Just set it on a hot manifold for a few minutes, awesome! I knew one guy that ate so many of them early on a field-X, just to get out of it. Them MRE's locked him up so bad, had to be taken back to the post medical, cleaned him out and brought him right back to the field. Agony!!!!

Whenever I deployed on field exercises, I would always save or trade for the dehydrated strawberries to take home for my 2 daughters.

Or stick a couple McD cheeseburgers in there, few years later they’ll still look just like the day they were stashed!

Or New England Wildlife and More, I love his channel better.

I love decades old food, its fun to see how it aged over time.
