With Ike taking aim at Houston, I figured I would check on my supplies. I checked my truck emergency backpack. Then I checked the indoor supplies. I have a case of MRE's and I pulled one out "Pork Ribs, imitation"

I think they may want to retire this one and try something else. :evil:

I have had MRE's before, but this one needs to go. The pears were alright.

Yes, when you are really hungry, one of those is like good meal, but... YUCK!

The guys in WWII must have really had a tough time.

The Chili and Macaroni isn't too bad, and the Beef Stew is alright. But taste is a personal thing.

Just remember that MRE's don't last forever. Storage temperature is a big factor in how long they last.

Keeping it in your truck will expose an MRE to very hot temperatures reducing the lifespan.

Anyone who has come across an expired MRE will know it. Usually the smell hits you right as you open the pouch.

The intelligent thing to do is look for MREs where the main meal doesn't contain meat or meat substitute. The one I had was Pasta & Veggies, and it was pretty good.

I don't keep MRE'e in the truck. Just energy bars. The MRE's are indoor supplies. And these expire in 2011.

My indoor supplies are canned, dry, and MRE's.

If you keep eating those MRE's TA, you need to take stock in Ducolox. LOL

We used to use the the MRE chicken-a-la-king as moulage to simulate dysentery for mass casualty classes. That about sums up my opinion on MRE's. Had to eat these damn things for 4 months straight without a real meal. The have an MRE cookbook that shows you how to make other things out of that comes in the MRE's. I think the MRE assault rat's were the best.

Pork Rib = bleh

Spaghetti (the new ones), Chili Mac, Jambalaya, Spicy Penne Pasta, and Chicken with Noodles are the best ones. :?

Call me crazy, but I really liked the hamburger patty one with the 2 giant bread-crackers for a bun and BBQ sauce. The newer menu kicks the crap out of the old dark brown offerings. Only Spaghetti was good in those IMO, and omelette with ham tasted like a piece of colored styrofoam. Although it seems like the old ones gave you a better chance at getting a pack of M&M's. In Iraq I printed an index card I found on the web that displayed the contents of each meal by lot number so I could tell by the MRE case if it contained my favorite meals or not, which we then hoarded for our squad's use. I was also a big fan of any meal that came with the milkshake. Those were pretty good by MRE standards.

i remember trying one of my mre's, it was manicotti i believe thought it was pretty good, came with wheat bread, peanut butter, pears, and a ranger bar, think it was made by sure-pak.
