Yeah, like I said, we had to eat them for awhile after Katrina. Our family only needed them for about 2-3 weeks, but other people needed them for awhile. We even got to where we would trade stuff from em with each other, make creative stuff (mixing the instant coffee and the cocoa is great), and using the heaters to blow up water bottles X3. Just be warned, the gum inside the condiments pack is actually laxative.

LOL, the fact that there is a laxative inside them should tell you something.....

I ate them in the Army. I would have loved to have had some while I was homeless! I would have bought them at that price too.

An Army-issued "Meal Ready to Eat" . Basically safe and ready

nutrition for our soldiers on the battlefield. They can be heated,

but don't have to be. Modern replacements for " C" and "K"

rations of WWII, and Korea fame.

As to the OP, IMO, you got a good deal. 130 for 50$, would still

be a good deal. Unless you intended to sell 1300, you bought

for 500$, I'd give you crap, too.

That's just a good bargain. I would have done the same.

Most of them I see in my area are about 10 bucks each.
