Everyone complains about eating MREs..
...but whenever there were any left over at the end of drill or annual training hey magically disappeared! For what they are MREs are pretty good. If you mix and match items from one package to another and use some imagination you can create gourmet meals. I'm just sayin'.....

Much better than I remembered!
I bought 2 cases of these for a zombie survival event I ran. I loved that each one is sealed in a large ziplock bag. We used that bag as a makeshift salad bowl for each person! :) The MREs tasted better than I remembered MREs tasting. The only flavor that wasn't tasty was the chicken noodle. The italian flavors were quite delicious. I got asked if people could take home all the breads and jellys since they were so good. I'm definately buying these again.

MRE is the acronym for Meals-Ready-to-Eat. These pouch meals were originally designed for our soldiers in the U.S. Military. These dishes are precooked and can be eaten cold or heated. Great attention goes into developing the recipes for MRE’s.
Under proper storage conditions, MREs have a long shelf life because they are packed in triple-layer foil and plastic pouches. These durable pouches also make preparation easy. To heat MREs warm the pouch in the sun, drop it in boiling water, place it on the car heater, and eat right out of the pouch.
