    Default MRE's

    I am looking to see if anyone uses MRE's. What are the best tasting ones, who has the best prices. We are looking to place a case on our brush trucks (2).

    Talk to your local Fed.'s, or state boys. They will most likely give you some for free. But the McCormick Military MRE's are the best, They are all good. Just make sure you give the Vegetarian ones to your Rookies.

    To me, many of the veggie ones are better than the others.

    You know what MRE stands for right??

    Exactly. Make sure you eat the entire meal too. They are "balanced" with different nutrients in different parts of the meal. If you only eat certain things you might get the runs or blocked up more severely than it will already affect you.

    Here's a link to the menus:

    Personally, I like the Vegetarian ones too (I'm in NO way a veg though), but they usually go fast, esp the Cheese Tortellini. They'll come in a case with either the first 12 or last 12 meals in them.

    And I'd steer clear of them unless you're actually engaged in a long term incident. They are high calorie, high fat and high sodium. And don't read the nutrition label for the Strawberry Shake. Trust me.

    Meals like MRE's are great for high impact work, lots of energy to burn. If you aren't doing a lot of work though, then they will put you to sleep.

    Honestly my top 3 favorites are.

    1. Chicken and Dumplings
    2. Veggie Burger
    3. Anything but Veggie Omelet.
