Menu 20 Hash Brown potatoes 2015

Postby Conrad » Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:29 pm

I've found a new member for my favourites list for US MREs.
. Specially after "cheating" a bit and adding a pinch of black pepper.
I actually sourced this one in Ireland which is unusual but I found a guy who sells outdoors stuff who had some.


It is an ameriqual packed one.
Contained:

-crackers
-beef snack
-spoon/accessory pack/heater etc
-beverage bag
-orange beverage base
-mountain house blueberry granola
- banana muffin top (TFF)


I've saved the granola for breakfast tomorrow morning. Was very happy to get it as I love the mountain house breakfast items.
The main was pretty nice as far as I'm concerned and it heated up nicely. The snack strip, which I ate after the main was disappointing compared to previous ones I've had as it was VERY dry and bland. Not horrible... Just not good either.
The muffin top was it's usual artificial but nice

One thing I particularly liked was that the main in this is pretty big and in my view pretty tasty.

Had the coffee after but skipped the beverage base.
The coffee was fine as usual, functional but not much else, but I'm a bit of a coffee snob
. will eat the crackers and cheese spread later, probably during my short break at work.

It was pretty good for an MRE man. If only they did a freeze dried one, bet it would come out way better
