Default Re: A question about additives

Wow, you guys jogged my memory. They used to make something that was a can of food, like pork and beans and the food can was attached to the top of a Sterno heater.

You peeled off a strip of the Sterno can and the top of the food can, lit the Sterno and it applied just the right amount of heat to the food. Odd but the Air Force didn't issue them but we could buy them in the base BX. This was in the late 60s, in a war zone. Maybe they only made them for a while. I haven't seen anything like them since 1969.
