"Stew was pretty bad. Everything else was good. Wish they sold the cookies separately, lol. Would advise you try another M.R.E.
"Ate plenty of these in basic training and unless u got a stomach of steel you'll be rushing for the restroom in hours. IT tastes pretty good but is a bomb waiting to go off in ur stomach.
PRO: tastes pretty good, usually came with the vanilla milkshake desert. everyone offered t trade me for it.
Con: bomb waiting to go off in ur stomach.
"I was pleasantly surprised by this MRE. My MRE was shipped quickly and arrived well within the 5 day limit per the shipping quote, so points for evike. The stew was really tasty and rich, and I found that if you crumbled the bread into it, it thicken the stew into a chili-like consistency and gave it a slightly sweet taste. I used my jam on the oatmeal cookie, which was pretty fantastic, though not grandma's recipe good, but satisfactory. The orange drank was standard orange drank so no complaints there. I would love to comment on the coffee, but my MRE didn't come with any, even though the description said it would, so I took off a star for that, boo to evike.
And for those of you wondering about the....colonic cork utility of an MRE, this one didn't stop me up at all, still regular; gonna need a milspec MRE for that. All in all, I'd highly recommend this for field rations during a long event. The directions were easy to understand and the package all together created minimal trash waste, so good for backpacking purposes. 4 out of 5 for me, I'd bump it a star if I got to try the coffee.
