Description

Accessory Packet, Zusatzartikel für eine Einmannpackung (englisch: MRE) in durchsichtigen Kunststoff eingeschweist: Kaffee, Tee, Milchpulver, Zucker, Salz, Streichhölzer, Kaugummi, Toilettenpapier und ein Fläschchen Tabasco.

The United States’ MRE is packaged similarly to the Canadian ration. Each sealed plastic bag contains one entire precooked meal, with a number of supplements and accessories. The original 12 menus have been expanded to 24 and now contain a variety of ethnic and special request items as well. Kosher/Halal and Vegetarian menus are also provided. Each meal bag contains an 8-oz main course (packaged in a four-layer plastic and foil laminate retort pouch), 8 hard military crackers, some form of spread (cheese, peanut butter, or jelly), a fruit-based beverage powder, some form of dessert (cake, candy, cookies, or fruit), and an accessory packet containing coffee or tea, creamer, sugar, salt, matches, a plastic spoon, and toilet paper. A chemical heater is packed with every meal. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_ration)
