They get real old real quick, but they're definitely not that bad. I think they're about as good of chow as you could hope to get in most situations though. I've actually heard a couple rumors that we're going to be getting freeze dried ice cream on a couple of the new menus.

The beef stew MRE tastes like Dinty Moore Beef Stew. I love it. I'm trying to find a cheap pack i can buy for airsoft skirmishes.

Our rations are getting alot better, the meals are great, i do like American MRE's because they are different, i like the Brit ones too even though they only get one for the day.

I've been eating them since I've been over here and at first I couldn't stand them!!!! It's taken a while to get used to them. Some of them are really good but then again some of them are just awful!

The MilQuotes PX at your service, Sir!


The Norwegian MREs (Field Meals) are some of the best in the world (my opinion).
I've tastes British, US, French etc.. but thay can't be compared to ours, they do actually taste like they are supposed to do..
They are produced by Drytech Norway, you can find some examples of menus here:
