Low sodium meals

Post by Icon » Sat Sep 24, 2016 4:49 pm

Do they have the same shelf life as regular MREs? Do they taste bland? My local store just got in several pallets and I need to grab a few cases if they are good for storage and taste good. Don't want to buy a case just to find out they need salt to taste good.

There are several of the members here doing reviews of them over on that TwoYubes thing. One thing I've noticed is that only the entree changes - the rest of the package is the same every time. It's crackers with two packs of jelly, poptarts, a Tootsie roll, and a drink. Booooring. Obviously picked to limit the sodium level, but completely without imagination.

yes, they are flat. You will need to add salt and/or seasoning. Check out my CivVsMil review, I have one of the LS Raviolis on it, and you can see what I mean.

Also, keep in mind most of these don't come with beverage packets. They were created for disaster relief on special order from the Govt. I worked with the SoPakCo rep on getting all the necessary info needed for a full review.

but, as some say, if the price is right, they are handy to keep around for quick meals or snacks. ;)

I found the review... I may pick up a case to try it out. At $20 per case, adding spices may not be all that bad.

Where can I find cases for such a price?
Good luck and may your rations stay unspoiled!

These are at a local freight damage type store. They get MREs in about 3-4 times a year.
