Chicken with Tomatoes and feta, if it has the stuffing side. Thats about the only one that pops out of the recent menus.

That Chicken Tomato Feta was probably the most divisive one ever. At least half hated it. About the only one I rated awful was the Chicken Fajita, because the "extruded from paste" chicken chunks were more like erasers than meat. I like all the rest that I've had. Most of us love the chili options and the beef stew. The Southwest Beef and Black Beans is superb. One really good one is the alternate #21, Chicken in Herb Garlic Sauce. I also like Chicken w/Egg Noodles and Veggies. I think the vegetarian ones have better flavor than some of the others, due to fewer preservatives. The recent Macaroni in Tomato Sauce is good because it is not a "boyardee" sauce. The Spinach Fettucine may be a divisive one like Chicken Feta - it's an acquired taste. Cheese Tortellini is almost a "mac and cheese" dish, and the oddly named Veggie Pasta in Taco Sauce is more like a meatless chili mac.

Except for that one, there haven't been any I don't enjoy and look forward to.

Definitely not fun to eat erasers, even if they are chicken flavored

I'm a little slow getting to this thread, but I think it's a toss-up between jalapeno beef patty and meatballs with marinara. :)

My ultimate fav MRE is, hands down, Omelet with Ham. I have one I got on eBay but I still afraid to eat it :) It sits in my fridge until one day I am bold enough to eat it.

I'm fairly new to MREs/rations, but so far my favorite menu has been the lemon pepper tuna with fat free mayo and tortillas. I know that technically the tuna is manufactured for civilian use, but the lemon pepper flavor is amazing. My favorite individual item is the banana nut ranger bar, those lemon drop bits are just bursting with a nice banana flavor. I tried it with the peanut butter and blackberry jam and I was blown away. I'd definitely imagine that dessert is one that guys are fighting over. I've got a good variety of foreign (Taiwan, Norway, UK) and domestic menus currently in the mail headed my way and I cant wait to try them all and expand my experience. I'll definitely pop back in and give it a try posting a few reviews in here!

Absolute favorite is corned beef hash early 90s But for recent jalapeno beef patty pork sausage patty chili with beans chili mac is good the hash browns is pretty good with the granola favorite item is definitely the fudge brownie can't get enough of them things or any of the pound cakes really and one of my favorite things to get an MRE is the freaking MRE coffee I try not even to buy the MREs that the don't come with the coffee anymore you should have seen how happy I was the first time I got a genial coffee LOL

I just had my first US mre it was a 5115 meatballs with marinara. It had the genial and it was AMAZING. It also had the jalapeno cheese spread which was just the best. I can't stress enough how enjoyable opening that bad boy was!

The creamer, splenda and genial was suprisingly great!

So I guess my favorite is the only one I have had :lol: but I look forward to sampling more!
