Tortellini ALfredo. THe IMP tortellini is the worst tortellini I've tasted, but still amazing, as all tortellini is.

It the apple jelly and saw dust peanut butter that was the best....used to use the cheese to put it on the dehydrated mystery meat.

Apple jelly on the cherry nut cake, or maple nut cake. Peanut butter on the gorilla cookies.
Fruit nut cake or Orange nut cake trade for anything and I mean anything.

I really miss the dehydrated fruit. Take a bite, drink some water and rehydrate in your mouth. No one really liked them so it was more for me.

I liked the mixed fruit, the peaches and the Strawberries (before they discontinued them). I could live without the pears.

I liked the pears!! How about the brown packet coffee, thought they just dug up some dirt and put it in the packet. Or the potato patty. I think the first generation MRE's were made to weed out the weak. Ate them for a 5 week period, no B rats or T rats, man it was terrible.

Hulk didn't you read the packet "Contains no real coffee". The potato patties were the last thing I'd eat card board and salt. Yeah those first generation MRE's made many a strong man weep.

Do you remember "Track Pads" also known as Brownie Chocolate Covered? Even little filipino kids wouldn't take em.

I remember them, it was the first MRE I ever ate in boot, MRE Menu 3, will never forget that number, had to eat the entire thing in 10 minutes and drink a canteen....how about the red powder that was called "Ketchup"

Ketchup Yeah ! Ever try to get just enough water mixed in to put it on an MRE cheese burger (Dehydrated Beef Pattie Cheese and crackers before anybody asks). You ended up with ethier red water or a gritty paste.

My first MRE was beef stew the only thing I remember was the DI's bogartin everybodies deserts.

The gum was the best, could throw it at the enemy if you ran out of ammo

The DI's were coco hunting during boot, it was November.
