MRE Advice

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a good place to buy real MREs? I know people mentioned cheaper than dirt, which does look like a good website. I also read on mreinfo.com that eBay was a good place to look. Want to buy a case or two to add to our normal food prep. I was thinking the real military MREs would be the best option because of the heater. However, if anyone has recommendations for the civilian version, I'm all open.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I stopped buying MRE's altogether and started making my own. You can make meals and then dehydrate them, seal them with a food saver. later boil a cup of water add food 5 minuets later eat good food.

I have dehydrated almost everything. nothing like hiking and then having a good home cooked meal at the end of the day

Matt, have a look at the link below.....

 

MREs are great because of the means of heating them. Downside, they only store for

3-5yrs. If you have a way of boiling water, I reccomend this, especially if you have a

couple of mouths to feed. I've been shopping here for quite sometime. Service is

great. They will keep you updated on any of your orders if you check the boxes required

when you purchase from them.

Through my job I can get what ever MRE's I want for my stock but about a year ago I stopped messing with them and started making my own. I was never happy with the taste of the military ones and the heaters never seemed to work all that well. Making your own is the same price or mabey even alittle cheaper too. There is a thread on here about making your own somewhere. Also I was always told when I was in the military not to eat them for more then 3 days (they always got us hot chow by the 3 day mark) they said it was because the military ones are designed to make you constipated:( I dont if thats true or they just didnt want us to eat them everyday (cause some guys loved them). If any one has ever heard that before I would be intrested in hearing about it.

thanks for all the advice (and warnings - sounds a little mean to design something to make you constipated, but guess there might be a reason.). Main reason I was interestedin MREs was to have a compact food that did not require lots of water for cooking. Was thinking this would be for only a few days. Will look more into the civilian versions as well. Basically coming up with a tiered food plan for bugging in or bugging out. Next step after MREs will be finding some good dehydrated meals.

Wal-Mart ,, I know, I know, I'm getting repetitive with this wallyworld thing but they do carry in the camping section Backpack meals. Also I've seen them at Dicks Sporting Goods. Small backpack meals are what they are. I have some in my (BOB).

Matt,

not mean - practical. One of the most common problems in many combat situations is diarrhea. The last thing you want is a rifle squad that can't fight because they'll hunting up 'all purpose people paper'. The guy with the supply of Loperamide (Imodium) is often the most popular guy in the unit.

Capt, that makes sense. Diarrhea is never a fun this, but in that type of situation see the added danger. Thanks for the insight. This also reinforces why i have a decent supply of Imodium in the BOB.

As a pilot diarrhea would be no good at all. Im glad I was flying over those rifle companys (humping all that gear looked like alot of work). I got to spend most nights in the rear with the gear and never had to take any Imodioum (thank goodness) during my deployments in the gulf.

You Gulf guys had a break there. In RVN they gave us this anti-malaria drug that gave EVERYONE diarrhea. After about 3 months you decided the malaria was better than the runs. (OK, I was young and invincible; that's spelled S-T-U-P-I-D but we mostly got away with it). I discovered that mosquitoes don't like garlic so I hate tons of it. Didn't get malaria and the diarrhea stopped until I discovered that the alcohol in the Scotch doesn't kill the amoeba in the ice. I assure you, without fear of contradiction, that amoebic dysentery is one of the most effective weight loss methods on the face of the planet. I'm 6ft 2in and I weighed 108 lbs when I came back stateside! That was after only 6 weeks; the doctor friends over there noticed and fixed. Effective but I wouldn't recommend it.

dc matt,

Try http://www.ameriqual.com, http://www.sopakco.com/ and last but not least http://wornick.com/ these are the three companies that make th U.S.,s rations MRE's, KPAKS and the new BRICK all will do special orders for private individuals and companies, in certain quantities. Ameriqual requires the least amount. You can also do some special menu's with them. MRE life span is not 5-7 years this is simply the date Uncle Sam requires it be inspected by for quality control purposes to ensure the packets have not suffered damage from freezing, heat,(both verified by the orange sticker on the side) critters or crushing they are actually tested safe for 11-15 years and based on storage conditions possibly longer I keep several cases on hand because MRE's require no rehydration can be eaten cold, or heated without fire in a few minutes yes they plug you up but as in a survival situation as in combat this is preferable to the squirts whether from illness adjustment or stress. No they are not my main survival supply stock or long term supply but MRE's definately have place in emergency and disaster preparedness.

MRE military radical enema

 

that is why I prep so I have food fit to eat otherwise I'll wait for the gov to air drop MRE's

and pray a whole pallet lands on me be more merciful than having to eat them.

 

I liked K and C rations better the only thing I like in the MRE's is the pop tart and the

freeze dried fruit the rest it for baiting my traps.

So what do you use as your main supply stock? Canned foods rotated?
