1955 RCI Food Ration Oldest Peanut Butter Ever Eaten MRE Review Post-Korean Meal Tasting C Rat
Witness this classic food storage discovery! Eating the oldest peanut butter was not what I was expecting that night when filming this. Hope you enjoy this Vintage MRE Review!
This time, we have 2 B-Unit cans from a very rare Post-Korean War-era Ration, Combat, Individual (RCI) up for review.
We try out the crackers, jam, cocoa beverage, and most notably - eating half of a can of that 61 year old peanut butter - what has to be by far the oldest recorded peanut butter ever eaten!
About 21 hours later right now, and I am just fine. Had indigestion, and slightly low energy today, but the energy part probably derived from a complete & utter lack of proper rest, as per usual whilst making these YT videos. It's more than worth it for your enjoyment
These cans are approximately twice the dimensional height of the well known MCI (Meal, Combat, Individual, or dubbed: C-Ration) of the Vietnam War-era.
These were bulky, inefficient in stowing in packs, and heavy.
The production of RCI's was from 1950-1958 and then production ceased and were replaced with the MCI in 1959. Units were allocated and utilized to troops until stocks were depleted.
Hope you folks like the video!
Oh, and I wrote that intro music, I have a ton of tunes I composed and am thinking of adding some to the videos from time to time.

PS, thanks to Charles Sweitzer, I have a little background on that Cinderella Packaging Company:
The old Cinderella Peanut Butter plant is now occupied by Golden Peanut Company. The company just did a $18-20 million investment and is now refining its own peanut oil. The company no longer produces the Cinderella Peanut Butter in Dawson and they will be demolishing the old facility soon as the new facility is up and running.
