I got a good variety out of the 8 that I got. Most were packed in 2015, some went up to 2017. Which is insanely fresh. 2015 is quite young by MRE standards. Depending on the meal, 2012 or older is where I'd start asoing questions, but these guys seem to have pretty new stuff. Mine were all sealed and undamaged.
As for the good, these are genuine military MRE's complete with all the components. Generally it will come with an Entree, snack, cracker or tortilla, spread or Jam, a dessert and an accessory packet with drinks. If you do not get crackers or wheat snack bread, it is because if you got a tortilla, that is the replacement for them. Some of them are genuinely very delicious and filling. They are high caloric, high sodium and sugar food items, I would not recommend eating these if you are not active often; I personally use these as emergency meals. Irregardless, this is military food, not Gordon Ramsay pre-made meals. Some are good, and some are bad, and that is no fault of the seller. It is military food, plain and simple. But generally, it's personal taste.
As a tip, if these clog you up, eating 4 of the chiclets in the accessory packet will act as a laxative.
Now to get the unpleasantness out of the way; The "Commercial Sale is Unlawful" tag on the bag does not apply to you or the seller. It applied to the Military personnel it is issued to. Because it is their free ration, they cannot SELL it, or they can be held accountable by UCMJ. But there is nothing wrong with GIFTING it to someone for free... and maybe collecting some cash later as a "Birthday gift" as a legal way around it. It's completely legal in that manner.
All in all, 10/10 from me. Everything is as expected.
My granddaughter and I watch Steve1989MREInfo videos together, and ever since then, she's been interested in trying MREs.
The MREs themselves allow for unboxing (which my granddaughter loves), and she eats them over the course of a few days. Good taste, good fun, good value.
The date on the pack was 2018. Everything tasted fresh - the tortillas were still bendable without breaking, the gum was soft. The FRH (flame-less ration heater) worked great, heating up the main (beef) in about 8 mins. The shredded beef tasted fine and the BBQ sauce wasn't too smoky or sweet - it was just right. The jalapeno cheddar cheese spread was good on the tortillas. The oatmeal cookie was soft and tasted fresh and had a nice hint of cinnamon. The black beans in spicy sauce had the right amount of spice to them. The beans had a little bit of firmness to them which was better than the mushy texture I was expecting.
I would definitely buy and eat these MREs again.
EDIT: I ordered 4 MRS and I received two of these BBQ beef meals, 1 spaghetti meal, and 1 beef stew meal. I haven't tried the spaghetti or beef stew MREs yet.
If weight is a consideration (for example, if you're looking for something light to bring backpacking or camping) the MREs will be heavier to carry than freeze dried meal pouches. They are also much heartier and flavourful meals than most freeze dried meal pouches too. I think it's definitely worth considering carrying a mixture of freeze dried pouches for the low weight and MREs for the solid calories and relatively hearty and flavourful meals.
This was my first time trying out MREs and I was so pleased that I just ordered a full case of the B Menu.
