Whats your favorite MRE?
For anyone in the military, you know what Im talkin about. I just had an FTX this weekend and ate 7 or 8 MRE's. (meals ready to eat) for those who dont know, the entree is on the package but the rest is a mystery. Its like Christmas morning when you open that tan plasic bag to find out what goodies you get with your chicken w/ thai sauce, or bean and rice burrito.
My personal favorite is beef stew, vegetable crackers w/ jalapeno cheese spread, spiced apples, cookies w/ pan coated chocolate dics (M&M's), and chocolate dairy milkshake. Other good entrees are pork rib, turkey/mashed taters n gravy, and beefsteak n mushrooms.
Each one has around 2000 calories and I had 4 on saturday. 8000 cals never tasted so good.

take the creamer and add it to the sugar packet, take a lighter to it and it turns into a sugar cookie. Other than that I would have to say chili mac is my fav.

I love MRE's how many calories are in those things? Seems like I read somewhere that one MRE a day could sustain a soldier in the field.

One MRE has about 2000 calories. Thats enough for one day but I would think most soldiers would eat at least 2 spread out thru the day.
