Guy Eats The Oldest Peanut Butter Ever Eaten, From A Korean War Military Ration Dating Back To 1955

Dude, NO. I’m not a picky eater. I do eat well, mostly as the result of growing up in a restaurant family where both sides of my family were involved in all operations of running restaurants throughout the past several decades…but I’ll eat just about anything and then judge it accordingly. If the food is good I’ll be the first to tell the chef, but if it’s god awful you’ll never find me saying favorable things about a restaurant and/or chef…but like any rational human being there are limits to what I’ll eat, and those limits include me NOT eating 61-year-old peanut butter from the Korean War.

If you’re going to eat 61-year-old peanut butter, a food that was packaged back in 1955 for Americans fighting in the Korean War, I’d suggest AT LEAST having health insurance before munching down the MRE. For those of you bros that aren’t familiar with the MRE (there’s probably one or two of you), it’s a ‘Meal, ready-to-eat’ whose usage by the United States Military dates back to the Revolutionary War. They’re exactly what they sound like, meals that are ready to eat out in the field. This particular MRE has crackers, jam, cocoa, and a jar of 61-year-old peanut butter that this guy eats…This video’s a little longer than most videos, coming in at around sixteen minutes. So feel free to watch this on 1.5x speed or jump around to the good parts (the peanut butter action starts around 12:30).
