Some of the MRE's are not all to bad in my opinion (beef stew, macaroni and chilli) but after having strickly MRE's for even a weekend you begin to mix them up and invent things, such as Ranger pudding (consisting of all the chocolate dairy mix, sugar, dairy creamer, and chocolate milk you can find. Give or take an ingrediant. Mix them all up with a tiny bit of water. Good stuff. It's also got like... 600 calories.

Thing about it is you can only eat "Meals Refused by Ethiopians" for so long before you do irrepairable damage to your taste buds. A few years of eating them and you can eat anything and say "I have had worse."

"Meals Refused by Ethiopians" that's a super one

Ready To Eat, put som duck meat in there, should be great.

Let's not forget about pogy bait!!! For all you civilians and aspiring military pepes, pogy bait is anything type of food a soldier brings with him/her to the field. Popular items include ramen noodles, beef jerkey, vieanna sausages, mac & cheese (iraq), soda...the list goes on and on.

Yeah, I got to agree with you there....I liked the excuse though, "We had to grab our goods", like you I started as a gunner and wondered why the h*** they would go through my crap when I didn't hump any extra rounds for them. Lost many Powerbars too! Started keeping it in my 782 gear, even grabed an extra magazine pouch to keep it safe!
