Alright, so, today at an antique store I came across some "Civil Defense all purpose survival crackers". Made in 1965, I believe. Sealed tin, all the fancy stuff. I got home, checked a few forums about them, and, most say they should be alright to eat. Just going to get you guy's opinion here. Yey or ney to eating??? They look fine.

I don't see why not. The worst they can be is stale.

Will MRE butter do? hahaha. Danke, guys. Like I say, sealed tin and everything, just as you can see, curiosity lead me to open it. Obviously after that there was a response of: "Well, shit. Now I have to eat them!"

To my surprise, upon trying them this morning, they were alright. Still crunchy, but they aren't something I'd eat alone, they need flavor.

Way back, the place I live had a lot of fallout shelters. Binghamton (put 2 and 2 together, haha) was a major steel manufacturer, thusly one of the CCCP's biggest targets on the secondary target list. In my adventures, I've visited one of said shelters.... cold, humid, then hot and humid, all the time dark. :D

I remember eating these as a kid. For some reason my dad had lots of MREs, almost like maybe they were left over from Vietnam days or something...:dunno:

I loved 'em, the peanut butter too! Yum...can you say sticky!

Nice! haha. Reenacting gets you used to the German stuff like Hartkek and Knackelbrot. Fun times, fun times.

On a side note, they've been set aside with the rest of my stockpile.
