Re: US MRE Menu 6 - Beef Taco

Yeah, go for it. Just don't try to actually make a taco with it, and you'll be fine. The meat works better as chili than taco meat.

Re: Trying to find certain MRE coffee

Yes. Several different brands are available in most grocery stores in my area. They are usually kept right next to the regular instant coffee. My wife is a huge fan of these and SO much cheaper than your fancified cafe house offerings. I managed to find that exact product at the local Walmart, and....

Re: US MRE Menu 6 - Beef Taco

Yeah, I don't know what they were thinking here. If they changed it from "beef taco" to "beef chili" and swapped the tortillas for the usual MRE bread, it'd make perfect sense. But as it is, the best way to go about eating this menu is to just eat the "taco meat" by itself and use the tortillas for ...

US MRE Menu 6 - Beef Taco

I've had this menu a couple of times, so I figured I'd toss up a quick review. Contents: -1 "Beef Taco" main -Tortillas -Peanut Butter -Strawberry Jam -Vanilla Pudding Mix -Fruit Punch drink mix -Accessory packet (the usual stuff) Now, the main is kinda weird. It says it's "beef taco" and even inclu...

Trying to find certain MRE coffee

Now, I'm really not a coffee drinker, every kind I try just tastes horribly bitter. Most of the instant coffee that comes with MREs has been the same, really bitter stuff, but two types, I actually did enjoy: -French Vanilla Cappucino -Irish Cream The first one was from the "Vegetable chili with pas...

Re: Weird odd Coffee

Yeah, I often get "Genial" instant coffee in newer US MREs, instead of the usual "instant coffee type 1/2/3".

MRE Menu #4 (2013-2015?)

Again, I don't really know the type of MRE and I couldn't find any date stamp on the packaging or the stuff inside it, but the seller said that they're all 2012 or newer. The main meal had "5124" printed on the back of it, I'm assuming that's some kind of date stamp? It also had some numbers on the ...

First MRE (MRE Individual, 2013-2015?)

After watching tons of Steve1989's MRE videos, I finally decided to buy one for myself. Not sure of the exact type or what it's called, but this is what it looked like: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71z1begTsdL._SL1454_.jpg I got Menu #2, vegetables and pasta with taco sauce, some...
