Re: Why do you eat?

I dunno, there's just something fascinating about eating a whole meal out of a bag and having it actually taste fantastic.

Plus a bit of surprise since you never know exactly what you're going to get.

US MRE Menu #16 - Chicken Burrito Bowl

Another MRE I've never had before, always a fun time trying a new MRE. Menu #16, Chicken Burrito Bowl. Essentially chicken tacos, with some rice and beans in there as well. https://imgur.com/a/JoQHA0n Main course was pretty nice. The chicken, rice and kidney beans go great together, and there's some...

Vanilla pudding dessert?

I know that various MRE components, or similar products, can be found outside of MREs. Is there anything similar to the vanilla pudding desert?

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to find something close, since there aren't exactly many brands of powder instant pudding, but thought I'd ask first.

US MRE Menu #13 - Cheese Tortellini In Tomato Sauce

Been a while since I've had a new MRE; a bit tough to even find them at the local commissary. This time we've got menu #13, another pasta with sauce main. Photo gallery: https://imgur.com/a/ws3w1uu Was absolutely thrilled when I opened this and saw the Vanilla Pudding dessert. This stuff is seriousl...

Re: US MRE drink mixes not mixing?

Hard or soft water, perhaps? Nope, tried using tap water and bottled water, same result. Water temperature also plays a big part. Warm water mixes a lot better then cold water. Of course, it being summer now (as long as your a northern hemisphere-ian), you would think your water would naturally be ...

Re: US MRE drink mixes not mixing?

Yeah, it's the "carbohydrate electrolyte drink mix" or whatever it is. I'm adding exactly 12 ounces of water just like it says, and then sealing up the plastic bag and shaking the hell out of it. It refuses to mix in, I still get big globs of gunky stuff that doesn't mix in. What I ended up doing is...

US MRE drink mixes not mixing?

I'm not sure why, but as of a few weeks ago, every single US MRE I've eaten, the drink mix powder refuses to mix in properly. It just kinda mixes halfway and forms into weird squishy gunky stuff that does not mix in no matter how hard I stir it up or shake the bag. I've tried putting in the powder f...

Menu #10 - Chili and Macaroni

Let's go ahead and move onto something I actually did like...Menu #10, Chili and Macaroni. I've had this one before so I kinda knew what to expect. Photo Gallery: https://imgur.com/a/10xzP The main is pretty lovely. Just the usual MRE chili, but with some pasta added in. This time however, I decided...

Re: 2007 Menu No. 12 Veggie Burger

Yeah, vegetarian MREs can be interesting. My first MRE was the "vegetable chili with pasta", and I thought it would be awful due to being vegetarian stuff, but it was actually great.

Uh...yeah. I didn't like how the main tasted. It was awful.

Which is really weird because it smelled great.
