All the MRE's that I've tried have been good quality, with a taste like good canned food. This one, for example, tastes like Dinty Moore stew. Surprisingly, though, the MRE has a much greater ratio of meat to vegetables than you'd typically see in a can of Dinty Moore. If I was doing more than just tasting, I think I'd extend it with some peas, carrots, and potatoes.
I'd buy this again.

Thanks E.E. Satisfied customer here!
Thanks Emergency Essentials for doing me right on my initial purchase with your store. Not to sound like "that guy" here, but I kinda half-way expected to get a shipment of older MREs that had been in stock for a while. Not the case at all. I received my order (quicker than from other stores I might add) with exceptional dates on them. This was my first real experience with E.E. and I am very satisfied with the purchase. Thanks guys. I'll be back.

Better than most
I just received my first order of assorted MRE's to try. I tried this one first. I have many cans of beef stew in my pantry and this MRE is just as good as Dinty Moore.

Good customer service
I had originally posted a review about the Beef stew. I did not care for to much. Not to long after that post I recieved an email from them offering to replace the items for something else more to my liking. The bottom line is that I recieved very GOOD customer service which is why I will continue to order from them and tell others about them. Scotty from customer service, I thank you sir and I will be back !

First MRE I have tried since the 80's. Better than any canned stew I have bought from the grocery.

MRE GOOD QUALITY FOOD
I love MRE's they taste a hell of a lot better than those protein bars. They are a fully cooked meal with vitamins and minerals added. If you have never had one and want to sample it before you decide to add them to your emergency supplies or use them for camping. Try the Chile macaroni, spaghetti or ravioli MRE's. You wont be disappointed. They taste just like a home cooked meal and have a shelf life of 10 years. BUT there are one or two you wont like. At least for me anyways. one was a black bean burrito and the other was the captain chicken. The chicken one tasted like breaded cardboard and the burrito was like biting in a bar of lard. All the others I have had were great.

Best of the MRE Entrees
Bought a couple of extra MRE's to try them out when purchasing some emergency supplies. This is the best of the lot of the ones I tried. Mind you, they are not perfect, but good, and in times of emergency, this would be a delight.

You can sneak this in anytime
I've had MRE's before but it never hit me how "normal" they taste until one night I didn't feel like cooking and thought tonight was as a good a night to start cycling my emergency kit provisions. My family thought it tasted pretty good and even suggested getting a few more flavors to try out.

This website was excellent. I am a senior patrol leader for a boy scout troop and we need easy, quick, and clean meals. This is what I am looking for.

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.
