    What's your favorite MRE's from our current and ex-military? Or even civilians who've had the pleasure *cough* of eating these finely crafted cuisines for those without stoves

    I'll start ... mine was Jumbalaya.

    When I was in I would eat any of them except the dehydrated pork patty. I'd have to say Beef Stew was my favorite, with the Franks and Beans came in a close second.

    EH....the newer beef stew isn't very good. It is alright, but the last few years it has gone down hill, I had a 2004 beef stew in basic training, it was good, but each year it just didn't taste the same year after year.

    Heh, I heard there was a memo saying to stay away from the cheese and the seafood MRE's during the first Gulf.

    Never actually ate the stuff in them. We just had a lot of fun with the heaters. Dumpe them in plastic bottles, add some water, tighten the cap and throw it out in the convenience store of your choice. Wait across the street for the bang and the panic.

    Not that I'm suggesting anyone should try that.

    I know the WORST one was the vegetarian omelet. But it came with Pop-Tarts and a bunch of other sweet stuff, so it was a debate...
    I liked the chicken tetrazini though.

    Yup, I had emaciated, illiterate Somalia children throw them back at me, because they were that bad.

    A sad day. When did they stop making it?

    You had to watch what Somali's throw back ... I saw some Army guys from an Engineering Bttn who would piss in their water bottles and toss the bottles into the crowd ... the Somali's, being thirsty and hungry, would gulp it down without realizing it at first ... when they did, they got quite angry and began returning the favor with their own and throwing it back sans lids.

    hey i had it and it was better than most of the stuff we had to eat back then. in fact the only truly edible stuff were the pb and j crackers and the fruit dehydtrated or the fruit cake. although the ham steaks ( spam) was not too bad. usmc 1986-1993 active duty. and yes the dehydratyed pork patty was the worst in my opinion.
