    From reading around, appears you can get the various components of the FSR if you know where to search. You can buy the sandwhiches, Hooah Bars (Soldier Fuel), the caffeine gum (Stay Alert) from various places while some other items are off the shelf items (tuna, beef jerky)

    I see them at local (Arizona) gun shows fairly regularly. They now command fairly steep prices as collectables, if you can believe that!
    I sometimes see an older Vet buy one, and dig out the fudge drop from the can and share it with others who remember them.
    My dad was a Korean war Vet, and he bought me all kinds of them surplus in the 70's, when I was a kid.
    The cheese spread was deadly!

    The best place to ask that question would be over at MREInfo.com's forums. Those guys and gals LIVE all things MRE-related.

    EDIT: Looks like the forum is down right now.

    2nd EDIT: The forum's back up again.

    You can find almost all the components of the First Strike Rations at theepicenter.com (sandwiches, First Strike Bars (formerly Hooah! Bars), etc.)

    They also sell entire MRE's by the case and half-case. You can also get individual MRE components, if you want to make your own "gourmet" MRE's (that's what I've done).

    Their service and selection is fantastic.
