Re: MRE Meet Up 2019 - Simpsonville, KY - Photos

Thank you to everyone for a great time in Simpsonville. It really was a treat to meet everyone. To the whole MRE Nation crew, a special thank you for your overwhelming generosity.

Agreed, the hotel is really nice. We’re going out to grab some cocktail fixings for this evening’s get together.

Re: XMRE Pizza, does this look normal?

Agreed, but actual pictures seem exactly like the pizzas I've had. I also noted a slight chili powder flavor that was pretty unexpected. It's cool to have "pizza" but I hoping for so much more. Honestly I think you'd get a better result from some meatballs in marinara sauce on top of a wheat snack b...

Re: 2015 Menu #6 Beef Taco Review

If you can heat the tortillas up too, they taste much better. Cold they seem stiff and doughy, but heated they are just about perfect.

Why does almost everything in an MRE taste better when heated?

Re: 1974 Spaghetti with Beef Chunks MCI Review

My very first experience with MCIs were when I was a kid in the Civil Air Patrol. On an exercise, I was given a spaghetti and meat chunks meal. I was pretty excited because "how can you mess up spaghetti and meat?" Well, I opened the can and right on the top was a giant chunk of beef tongue with the...

Re: Huge deal on Ebay

Honestly, I didn't really need all this, but it was too good to pass up. I'm probably going to do some cherry picking of some items, and if any of you guys are local and are interested, I'm sure we can work something out. I'm also going to be at the get together in August, so if you want me to haul ...
