I cannot count how many MREs that have come through my home, lol. Between having Military and outdoor enthusiasts in the home, we have had our share. I personally think every home should have some in case of emergency. Ignore the sign of not for resale. That is because the military cannot resale them. MREs are released after a year in surplus, and then companies are allowed to sell them. These have a varied life span from 2017 and up to 4 years. They are clearly labeled with an expiration date. The expiration dates will vary. You receive 12 MRE’s in this case. There is a mixed variety of meals as well. Each package is clearly labeled and tightly sealed. It’s really easy to pack out with these, and very easy to store for preparedness too. You want to store them in a clean, cool, dry place. Each meal contains a water activated flameless ration heater in it. This way you can eat in the field if you need to. It’s also a great way to get hot food when there is no power or readily available fire. The meals received in my box are as follows:
1. Pork Sausage Patty, Maple Flavored
2. Chicken Breast Fillet, Seasoned Garlic and Herb
3. Beef Ravioli in Meat Sauce
4. Chicken Pesto Pasta
5. Beef Patty, Jalapeno Pepper Jack
6. Southwest Beef & Black Beans
7. Cheese Tortellini in Tomato Sauce (vegetarian)
8. Pork Sausage in Cream Gravy
9. Ratatouille – Mixed Vegetable and Pasta (vegetarian)
10. Rib Shaped Barbecue Flavor Pork Patty
11. Mexican Style Chicken Stew
12. Asian Style Beef Strips with Vegetables
Now, do not expect gourmet taste in an MRE, lol. That’s never going to happen. This is food that can keep you alive in dire situations. Some of them can be tasty. My son and husband really like some, and hate others. That really is a personal decision. These are easy to store, and take along with you. They are great to take with you on a trip in case your car breaks down, and you’re stranded. These are definitely the choice to make for a camping trip, especially when you pack out. Every home should be stocked with meals like this in case of an emergency, so your family can still eat. I love that MREs are available to the public. It’s definitely something every home should take advantage of. You need to still provide your own fluids, and water to activate the heater bags. My husband states that some MRE’s will include the water. He says it’s always hit or miss in this department. I love how you get such a mixture of foods in an MRE, including chicklets. I think that is hilarious for some reason. These really make being prepared easy.
