28 Yr. Old MRE Taste Great
I bought some MRE's from a local company about 1985. I kept them packed away for around 28 years & just pulled them out & they tasted amazing!! So after eating and remembering how great MRE's are I did a search and found The Ready Store. I was excited to know that I found a new supplier for my MRE's and also that
everyone should have this
even if your not afraid some bad is going to happen these are not too bad for the price (cheaper than fast food!!!) eveyone should get a years supply just to have them. i will eat them every day
MRE shelf life
For those that are worried about the self life. MRE's re famous for lasting WAY past the self life list. 5 Years is good for the people producing them for legal reasons but lean more towards 10 or so. there are stories of them being used and safely for 25 or so as well but I wouldn't go any past 10 myself. They are full of sodium which is a preservative in its own right but they are still a wet food so I hold off at 10.
good value - came with heaters
I ended up buying these since it seemed like a good deal AND they came with heaters, a couple of the companies I checked out sent you a year supply with no heaters at all. You do need to realize that 432 heaters does not give you a hot meal every meal for a year, I bought some more so that I could.
This will be great to have on hand for an emergency situation.
Good for large groups
I wouldn't recommend this for a family of two (no way to eat all of the MREs before they go bad), but it'd be great for larger groups or families. Definitely want to rotate these, else you'd just be throwing $8K down the drain!
Unless you have an army to feed, this seems a little excessive. When comparing the shelf life and price of mre's vs. freeze dried I feel like you can get a much better price for freeze dried and get exactly what entrees you want. If you are not using this for storage than I feel like you would have to start eating your stock the minute you got it to not have to eat it every day, before the shelf life is up. This takes up a lot of space and needs to be temperature controlled as well.
Comment from The Ready Store:
It is important to factor in everything when comparing the two in their totality. For one the MREs don't need water. This will save people money on containers, water treatment, and space. No doubt from a literal side by side comparison on the site there is a difference but by the time you use both products the price difference won't be AS large as it appears here.
