2017 MRE Menus?

Post by SentientTootsieRoll » Tue Jul 04, 2017 3:59 pm

Have the 2017 production MRE menus been released yet? We're in July and I still don't see it listed on the MRE Menus page, perhaps Natick Labs (or whoever is responsible) is running late?
If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're bound to repeat them for the first time.

I hadn't seen them as of a couple of months ago but I suppose it's time to check again!

From my information the new Items that are in the 2017 MREs are: chicken burrito bowl entree, a honey wheat bagel, trail mix, and teriyaki meat sticks.

Awesome! I saw your review and was pretty impressed, that looked like a pretty good meal. I was at an area surplus store a few weeks ago and wouldn't you believe it, I actually saw a case of TOTMs from 2017. I was thrown for a loop and thought to myself "There is absolutely no way these are this new. They must be 2007 production." Upon further inspection, the inspection date was marked 2018. For the price they were asking, I couldn't say no. Although it didn't have any of those new menus introduced in the 2016/17 MREs, they tasted really good and I knew they were fresh! I also wonder how it made its way to a surplus store so quick. Someone from a nearby base must have grabbed them shortly after they stocked up and traded them in for some cash. Not exactly the wisest thing to do (I don't imagine the military thinks too highly of that), but I won't complain.

SentientTootsieRoll - That's a logical assumption... which makes you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lucky! :lol:

I get 2017 MREs regularly, being in the Army has its perks.
Will operate for coffee.
