  • I would guess the bars weren't adopted as a morale thing. I would guess beef stew bars didn't appeal to many. And if I remember werent there a few experimental rations where everything was in bar form in the 80's? I imagine a lot of the test groups were likely sick of everything being in bar form, I know I would have been.

  • Watching your MRE reviews has become something of a weird compulsion for me... As a military brat & something of a survivalist, it kind of makes sense. Btw, you remind me a great deal of the friends I had in high school. We all had some rather esoteric interests & had no problems drawing the others into exploring them. Thankfully, nothing drastically bad! 😝

  • P.S. I’ve heard TONS of people say that the military gets the same food that people get in jail. And if THIS is what they’re talking about, THAT JUST AIN’T TRUE! Lol.. TRUST me, people in jail would LOVE to get MRE’s like the ones he eats here.. instead of the LITERAL SLOP they give you in jail! (I was in jail for 4 days - for missing a fucking court date, smh, didn’t even know that was POSSIBLE!! - but that was LITERALLY FOUR DAYS where I didn’t eat AT ALL! Not ONE BIT of the pure GARBAGE they give you there!! If you go to jail, even for the short time I WAS there for.. you’ll get home an appreciate FOOD and YOUR BED more than you EVER HAVE BEFORE!)

  • “This is like the best thing ever made” ..poor guys been eating MRE’s for TOO long! Ha THOUGH.. when I heard “fruit soup” I got excited too. And the texture it turned out to be WAS pretty good. And I LOVE raspberries so.. IF I HAD TO eat MREs, yea that’d prob be one of my favorite items also lol

    sara katesara kate4 months ago
  • Aw.. imagine being a soldier and looking forward to that chicken soup and getting an extra hot chocolate instead!? Yo I’d be PISSED! Lol for real! That’s not even FOOD so it’s not really a good compromise
