Coming to Canadian military ration packs: poutine in a pouch?

Included in this Canadian government call for alternate bids for "boil in a bag" rations is a request for +60,000 servings of poutine in a pouch - for those who don't know, that's french fries, gravy and cheese curds. Wonder how that'll hold up in a boil-in-a-bag pouch?

Food Critics in Camouflage

Reviews of MRE's, at times unintentionally hilarious. Kosher MRE reviewed. Also, the LA Times. Previously.

Son of Spam

Son of Spam. MRE (Meals-Ready-To-Eat) and other military food rations have come a long way since the 60's.

The Quest for the Three Year Sandwich

The Quest for the Three Year Sandwich "This bad boy will last a minimum of three years at 80 degrees, six months at 100 degrees. They will travel to the swampiest swamp, the highest mountain, the most arid desert." Great. So glad my tax dollars are getting put to good use. If they want prepackaged food that's been around for ages, there's a corner store near my house that can fix them right up. Is this sort of thing really needed?
