I've seen the entree list at Waltonfeed.com - I was going to order from them once but IIRC, they had a not-so-live ordering system - you fill out a form with what you want and they'd get back to you (eventually) with shipping. For me, shipping was pretty high and since it took them a few days just to get me that info, I decided not to order.

But that was a few years ago so maybe they've improved.

Believe it or not, I've never tried that Pasta in Alfredo Sauce - but I think DirtyDave ate one recently. Maybe he'll give us a review.

That pasta w/ alfredo was CRAP! I mean everytime I get alfredo sauce at an italian restaurant it is white in color. The sauce in this MRE is like a dark brownish color and tastes like, well, I have to say it again....

CRAP

See DirtyDave, that'll teach you to actually look at the MRE entree before eating it. I'm a firm believer in not looking at your MRE food too closely.

Just keep it in the pouch and dump all the tobasco and salt into it. Use your imagination and you'll think you're eating in a fine Italian restaurant! :-)

+1 for TheEpiCenter. I just ordered 1 dozen of each of the cheese spreads...Plain, Bacon, and Jalepeno and I am very happy with the order. His service and shipping was fast and top notch. I recommend www.theepicenter.com to anyone.

Cool - thanks for the recommendation. I seen his site a lot and the prices seem reasonable - but I've never ordered anything. He occasionally has some decent specials so I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

I've ordered from Long Life Food three or four times and the service is fast and the items are always fresh. I bought up a bunch of pound cakes that were within six months of production. Their entrees and sides are always fresh, too. Wornick actually has a link on their company's website directing you to www.longlifefood.com. LLF's prices include shipping and handling.

Longlifefood's prices always seemed sky-high to me. Even including shipping, $2.50 per entree seems kind of outrageous. But I guess if money isn't an option, they sure do seem to have everything you could want.

I read all the post and longlifefoods seem to take a beating. They are too high, their shipping is high. What noone bothered to point out is they are the only ones who offer the ice tea (at least as of last night). And for $9 for 50 might seem high, but when I totaled my order, there was no shipping cost. It didn't say free shipping, it just didn't have a shipping cost added. They had a $22 minium order, so maybe they have free shipping with the minium? Anyways, just thought I would pass that on. I find it to be a bargin when noone else has what I want. I added a few items I have never tried before and picked up some drink base too. It seems theepicenter is the best priced drink bases at .25 each (if ordered 18 of one flavor). Not a problem for me.

The best thing I've noticed about longlifefoods is that the shipping is free, so the items may cost a little more, but there is no shipping cost, I just checked their website, and that remains true, just something to think about if you're only saving .15c or something on another site then have to pay shipping.
