Video: YouTuber Eats Army Rations from 1955

Have you ever picked up a jar of peanut butter from your pantry and wondered if you should really eat it two days after its expiration date? Well, if you happen to find any RCI food rations from the Korean War era, we would definitely recommend putting it back.

YouTuber Steve 1989 MREinfo is famous for his iron gullet and willingness to try things the rest of us wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole, but digging into these ancient snack canisters is downright dangerous. His deadpan sense of humor and tenacity certainly make this video worth the watch.

It also gives you a sense of how much MREs have evolved over the years. Sure, they may not be comparable to fresh meal, but when you’re out in the woods, some dehydrated jambalaya isn’t the worst thing to chow down on.
