Pizza MRE Won't Debut Until 2018

Post by SentientTootsieRoll » Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:51 am

Hi all,

I was just reading around and figured I'd share this piece of info with all of you. This year, we can look forward to a burrito bowl menu along with some other new items. We were also once told that the pizza meal would be coming out this year, however reading this article, I can confirm that is likely not the case.

https://www.armytimes.com/articles/burr ... p-for-2017

It mentions pizza won't be with us (or the troops, quite honestly) until 2018. I'm glad they're still working on it!

I'm going to miss the ratatouille, which I thought was one of the best veggie meals. I probably won't bother trying to get the pizza (if it ever appears) because I can get pizza. To a troop in Wherethehellistan, it might be appealing; to somebody who can hardly throw a rock without hitting a pizza joint, not so much.

1 definitely check out the video and 2 armytimes aka militarytimes aka marinetimes aka navytimes might as well be a tabloid at this point there's some info in there but a lot of it is someone getting a story out for clicks.

The debut in 2018 of pizza was canceled... :(

Initial forecasts called for a 2018 launch of the pizza MREs, which were to come in both pepperoni and cheese varieties.
Whitsitt declined to provide a new timeline. He said Natick has internal goals, but that he was hesitant to commit at this time.

Hasent pizza been a pipe dream for a while now in the MREs? Maybe I'm getting old and since I'm a mover the customers always get us pizza for lunch. Its one of the reasons I started carrying MREs with me 2 to 3 times a week and I start to tire of having it. I can see the appeal for the young military guys who want a piece of home while in the field though.

Doesn't matter, even if it's in the pipeline, won't show up in cases till late 2017-early 2018 anyway. How long did we Americans wait for s-stable samichs? and look what we got. OK, not complaining. Only avail. in FSR's and they suck. :|

Wouldn't be THAT terribly difficult for Bridgford to make a pizza style sandwich... Granted it wouldn't be all that good, or would it?
