    Military MRE's (Meal, Ready to Eat) come with an FRH (Flameless Ration Heater), and probably several other TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms).

    Apparently, self-heating cans were in use as early as the 1900's.

    On a slightly unrelated note.

    I get a really weird feeling of disorientation if I look at/see a word for too often. I begin to treat each letter of the word as simply a weird shape with no actual meaning, instead of an element that helps construct the word.

    That word is "soup" as far as this thread is concerned...so copiously used.

    But you can't argue with the word. It's an awesome word. Soup.
    Not really.

    and yet they aren't widely available. I still have to get off my ass and put soup in the microwave, damnit I'm american, and as an american I am meant to be lazy. How can I be lazy if I still have to get up to heat my own soup! I can not fulfill my patriotic duty, until campbell's makes self heating soup!!

    lol...

    If you want to make soup and has no microwave to heat the water, then I have an idea. Just make a little “bag” like a Thermos insulating bottle. And attach it with the chicken needle soup plastic cup, with some hot water in it. So whenever you don’t have a microwave around you don’t have to worry. Just pour the water in your “little Thermos insulating bag” into your soup cup. Soup ready!

    Where can I get some of this? I am the person who forgets the boiling water on the stove and doesn't even make myself Ramen for lunch.

    Oddly, when I pay attention I'm perfectly capable of making, say, French Silk Pie.

    Yeah, I've seen and used the MRE heaters in military food rations. I believe the particular meal was Fettuccine Alfredo.

    But what's wrong with a microwave if you have one?

    My father is in the military, and he's often brought me some. I've used it when I train on the winter (cycling), some heat is always good in the cold.

    There are certain oils that heat themselves up when exposed to only a small amount of heat. I remember a friend of mine whose parents own a hotel, someone left some tablecloths in the laundry room near an electric heater and they like, spontaneously combusted and started a massive fire. The firemen said it was this cooking oil that was on them, apparently. Maybe that could be used in these soups so that just the heat from being carried in your pocket would make them hot enough to eat by the time you open them?
