Re: Must See 26 Year old MRE Review

Thanks for the review. I guess after 26 years some of the items are starting to go bad and that after taste you were talking about also. Only if you ate the entire meal would you find out if it was still good. Your a brave man and I was worried just eating a 2008 MRE. At my age it seems I visit that...

Merry Christmas to you to Shawn. I guess the shake was okay after all since I am still posting days later.

Re: 2008 MRE Menu 1 review: CHILI WITH BEANS

Shawn Dvalin, Thanks for the reminder. I just had happened to remember something about that. It tasted good but not worth risking getting sick. Have my fair share of Dr. visits this year already. Again thanks. art

New MRE SHELF LIFE CHART

Hello everyone! Hope all is well. I have been busy just surviving and not having time to do what I really like to do. Been eating a few MRE's this week. I have a few 2005,2006 and 2007 that I think I need to focus on since I saw the new LIFE CHART. Seems the time has been cut. Mostly for me since I ...

Re: Mountain House Rice & Chicken pouch

Your right! It says Rice and Chicken, NOT Rice and Chicken SOUP . It does look like I put too much water, I wanted a soup taste I guess. Still have 2/3 of it left and will use the pouch when I make it and leave it covered up for a few minutes. Then is should look less soupy. I assume the Dehydrated ...

Re: how long could you live from YOUR rations you have?

Good point Scotty, The thing I worry about is that if you neighbors see you running in INDEPENDANT MODE, then would they attack your reserves. I would assume if Electricity went out for more than 3 days, things would get ugly - meaning some people (the unprepared people) would start getting crazy, a...

Re: how long could you live from YOUR rations you have?

I pulled off about 1 month with 8 cases MRES by the formula. I reality probably about 2 months plus I have about 2 boxes of odds and ends like cheese, crackers, individual meals, cookies, coffee, tea, plenty of accessory packets. Thats if I want to eat the 3 full meals a day. I guess given a situati...
