I have never had the pleasure of eating an MRE.
Count yourself lucky. I have had the military issue version. They are NASTY. You might as well give them to the dog, can't be told apart from dog food. Plus, they're expensive, and not that good for you, I hear.

They really are not bad at all only a couple that I would not touch with a ten foot pole. The pasta ones are good and so is chicken cacciatore

Expensive YES! The price has jumped in the last few years. I purchased the ones in 2010/2011 years. The price for the box of 12, not counting the cost of shipping and handling. Running $79 with heater.

MRE is good when you are at the range, hiking or got a only specific amount of room in the pack.

Back in the 80's we had the beef pattie meal, that was either heated over the stove or fire pit in water. Eat that thing cold and you will lose a tooth or two!

That thing was a hockey puck!

We used to save our tiny toilet paper packs that came with each MRE. You'd need these after about 3 days if all you eat is MREs.

I will say this. The MREs that we get nowadays are significantly better than the ones I was eating six years ago when I first joined.

I've recently started selling freeze dried food as a very part time deal. In order to be able to discuss the product intelligently, know the tastes and the best ways to prepare it, Cin and I have been working some of into weekly meals. The product does have pre-made meals, but it puts more emphasis on separate freeze dried meats, vegetable, fruits, etc,, where you can use your own recipies. I have to say that I've been very pleasantly surprised. It's not the freeze dried food I remember from 20 years ago. Not only is it not bad, it's pretty good. Apparently freeze dried food isn't only for the apocalypse any more.
