i wonder how well mentos fair in cold/humid/hot/freezing temperatures. they would most likely be rock hard in cold(try dropping a mentos into a glass of cool water and one keep out. after about 5 seconds, the one in the glass is rock hard. try chewing each one.)
if an mre looks edible, and smells edible, it's most likely not edible.
