    Highly subjective answers to that question! Also, the menus have changed some with each major contract so some of the stuff may not be available anymore.

    The escalloped potatoes with ham is probably my favorite, very good and tastes almost like the store bought version in the microwave bowls.

    Pork and rice with tomato sauce is good.

    Ham patty was OK, would have been better cooked over a fire though.

    Meatballs and rice, good.

    Chicken and rice wasn't too fond of.

    Corned beef hash was OK but was pretty soupy.

    Turkey and gravy with potatoes, good.

    Dunno if they make them anymore, but I had a few "LRRP" rations that were dehydrated instead of wet packed. The beef patty was a dehydrated hamburger, crumbled up in the beans with tomato sauce made a passable expedient chili.

    The peanut butter is OK, kinda dry though.

    The cheese spread is terrible, throw at the enemy and hope he eats it. He will be too busy pukeing to put up much of a fight.

    The shelf stable bread is OK, again a bit dry.

    The crackers are kinda thick and brittle but taste like crackers.

    The pound cakes are great, the maple nut ones I would eat everyday!

    The oatmeal bar is very dry but tastes like an oatmeal cookie, if you got milk I suggest extended dunking!


    The drink mixes in fruit flavors are probably better than tasting water purification pills, but I'll stick with Kool Aid! The hot cocoa is good though.

    Those are about all the ones I've tried, some I passed on just because I don't like the dish regardless of who made it.

    I thought the pork patty was great as long as it was properly re hydrated...

    I knew i guy in the 80's that had cases of CRats from the 50's...most were eggs and limas i think. he had some other cases of cool stuff too.........

    I remember seeing MRE's listed on ebay after Katrina. Many had a location in LA.

    That wasn't you was it...

    I've eaten more MRE's than I'd like at my age, they give them to us for everything in ROTC, some aren't so bad, but they sure do back you up. This summer I ate nothing but MRE's for 10 days, lost 15 lbs

    Here's a little more info.
    Most of the MREs are made up the road from me at

    Since the war started those workers have put in a lot of overtime, & I'd like to tell them THANKS for keeping our boys fed.

    I have MRE's that are about 10 years old and are still eatable. I throw them in my Alice Pack when I go hunting. Just ate one the other day and it was damn good. Some are definetly better than others. I really like the ham portions that I got years ago, there probably 8 to 10 years old and taste better than ham you buy in the store. Got 3 cases under the bed for emergency, just in case. And a whole box of MRE deserts. The peaches & diced fruit are excellent, the pineapple is ok. My wife likes the little bottles of hot sauce that comes with them. lol.
