Re: miss MRE trays

Used to be able to buy them online all the time some years back, now no longer available anywhere. What ever happened to them? I have many cases of them from 2007-2008 if you want some. Thank you for the offer but I am good for now, was curious on where those went. You can make a fortune on eBay wi...

Re: miss MRE trays

I was thinking he meant the UGR. I believe I saw a topic not too long ago that they were pausing manufacturing, as the demand for them was low. EDIT - NM, that was for the UGR-E (Express). I if that's what you're referring to, I still see the UGR trays on Ebay. Does US military use them to feed tro...

Curious as to what you are referring to as an MRE tray.
Field kitchen/mess tray?
Sorry for not specifying, yes I was talking about UGR.

I would definitely be into one of those spicy rats :mrgreen:
Unfortunately there's a reason spicy rations aren't ideal, see my post above?

I like that they offer a "spicy" menu, I'd be all over those in a heartbeat. To top it off, Pocari Sweat is the isotonic drink :D .
Thing about spicy food is the enemy can smell you easier.

Re: Civilian Destroyed After Eating MREs For 21 Days

With MREs you are getting the nutrition with this proportion: 13% protein, 36% fat, and 51% carbohydrates, but keep in mind, this proportion is suited for a person that has a high e...

Re: Civilian Destroyed After Eating MREs For 21 Days

The thing with the MREs is they are made for people that are going to be doing more exercise, sweating more, burning through more fat than the average person, this is why it's normal for a daily ration to be 3500 kcal, but a regular person is expected to live with 1000kcal less...
