Congrats!
A couple years ago I had an MRE from 1987, it was prety good! Amazing? Not really... Still VERY edible!

If you have freezer space, freeze em and they'll last a lot longer.

Depends on how you market your items for sale. We always check your site, now and then. :|

Ha, you do know that will burst the entree packaging right? Ruin them.

Actually, no. They will freeze perfectly, but there's a downside. They won't last too long after thawing out. Some of the youtubers did videos revolving around a bunch of frozen brown bag MRE's that Steve got ahold of that were pristine even considering their age. They were stored frozen for many many years. Check out the videos.

There are 4 of them in an entrée pack.

They look like fingers.

They have a bad reputation for their side effects on the digestive tract.

If ya freeze your MRE, it will last so much longer.

Jerry had the foresight with those 93's and 95's. Now you all can do the same with menus you want to maybe have again in 20 years. Just don't let them thaw.. they have to be frozen the whole time.

And thermostabilized retorts don't blow up when frozen.
But they can crack if dropped. Do not rough handle.

Thanks, Biobrew... would like to hear from anyone who has tried them... how was taste? and any adverse reaction?
