From an MRES pro (an infantryman)
I was an Infantryman for years. I read all the reviews posted here. Mr.Es as we call the (MREs) are baised on a 3600 cal diet per meal people. Would not recommend them for an average person 3 times a day. Spread them out in an emergency and plan them for a 5-7 yr rotation also. A good friend bought this for me when I was going on a trip. I was brought back to the training days from basic and ranger school lol. This can last the week and more with proper food rationing. Not in the case I was used to. Good job on the packaging guys.

Can't go wrong!
Retired Marine father-in-law swore by these, even years after he retired if he wasn't grilling he was eating MRE's. Ever since, so have we! There's the one or two questionable entrees... but what line of food doesn't. Overall... My husband and I would happily live off of these. As an added bonus, not only are they tasty, they come with drinks and snacks!! But the meals are packed with essential vitamins, nutrients, and carbs needed to survive on sporadic meals if need be, perfect for any survival situation life may throw at you! No wonder our service men and women depend on these.

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. For best flavor and nutrition, keep MREs constantly stored at 70° or lower.
Easily cook an MRE at home by placing the metalized pouch in a pot of boiling water (unopened), wait a few minutes, pull it out, tear it open at the notched edge, and enjoy. Learn more about MRE shelf life with our insight article - MRE Shelf Life
