You could always mix the tootsie rolls or grape jelly in warm water. Yum.

Iíve seen hundreds of cases of these go into dumpsters itís crazy that people pay for them. We use the cases as doorstops at work lol. I once drove by and saw some guys dumping multiple fresh pallets into the dumpster.

Also they say 1-3 year shelf life that is only if kept near 32f the cases we eat say good for 90 days at rune temperatures although they do stay edible for longer you may not want to eat them.

looks like they're repackaged USGI Mre's... maybe being exposed to daylight reduces shelf life?

You young'uns have it easy. Back in my day, we had to eat sea rats. That's why Marines live near the beach. You gotta catch them suckers after midnight.

They stay good for longer than they. Iíve eaten 10 year old MREs. The ones in the trunk of humvee were there the entire 13 month deployment and were fine.

That's cute. You may not know this but the military has Veterinarians who are authorized to inspect MRE's and prolong the shelf life. 90 days? LMAO - Try 90 YEARS

Where do you work? Can you let me know the next time someone is throwing away "expired" MRE's. I'm not above dumpster diving.

Lol you are funny I do know lots can be reinspected but that is only when kept chilled once out in the wild they are not good for long. Now have I eaten more several years old? Yes of course but getting the fresh ones you can see they actually taste ok.

Appreciate the offer but it sounds like you're a busy man. Be safe on that deployment brother.

This has 1-3 year shelf life. Mountain house buckets seem better for long term storage?

LOL - Russian MRE's with more negative reviews than positive. Why don't you order some up and review them for us, OP? No offense but some of the "Deals" you post are pretty sketchy.

I respect your opinion and glad to see you express them so often. You probably won't believe this but I bought these last year from the same site and I like them. So there's my personal review. As for posting sketchy deals. I think $4 MRE's are a bargain compared to $12 for a official US military one. I'll continue posting deals because I like to share them with my friends here. There's no benefit to me putting effort into this other than that. Rather than judge my performance by a single opinion, I'll stick to seeing how often my post gets bumped to the top.

By the way. Russian MRE's are hella expensive-

Last time you shared a deal was a month ago and it wasn't even a deal.

And this is how I can tell you donít eat many mres. Trust me they can actually be decent when fresh we have been getting all the new ones recently like the chicken burrito bowl and they ainít bad. The pasta ones like ravioli and tortellini go a little congealed and you can tell they are a bit old. Also they started putting the heaters in their own alluminum pouch now and they work so much better. Iím with arty so far Iíve spent half of my time at this unit in the field. You sound like a marine so Iím assuming you are. But who knows this is the internet where people can say whatever they want.

Lol I ate them daily for almost 2 months straight during my deployment. And at least 5 days out of the month every month for about 3 years. none of them taste like anything they are labeled as. All the beef meals taste the same. All the chicken, minus the buffalo chicken tastes the same.

These MREs are stripped down, right? Still worth buying? I've been curious about them after watching that SteveMRE guy on youtube.

Hell, you guys have it easy with heated 1 - 3 year old MRE's. We used to eat cold 30 year old C and K rations back in the day.

When I started working for CDF as a seasonal firefighter back in 78, we carried C Rations on the trucks until they were discontinued in 1983. Didn't get the chance to eat too many but remember not being too impressed with them.
