The infamous MRE, Meals Ready to Eat

Here I'm just talking about and showing the kids and teachers what an MRE or Meals Ready to Eat is. If you're not familiar with an MRE, it is basically a prepared, long shelf life (up to 10 years or more) full meal originally made for the US military. They are now available to the civilian market as well as here. They are used quite a bit for hurricane and disaster relief by our various government relief agencies. MRE's are also great to have for family preparedness and family emergencies.

There is quite a bit packed in an MRE. You have a main entree, a side dish, a desert, utensils, salt, pepper, drink mix, cheese, crackers and more. If you get a chance to try one, you'll be amazed at how good they are. You can eat them cold or heat them up and they're as good as anything you buy in a can at your local grocery store. We didn't try the MRE's this day, but I did pass them around for the kids to check out.

Here's some more information about our MRE's from our web site

MRE's - Sure-Pak II (Meals, Ready-to-Eat). They are sealed in the factory box of 12 and are made by Sopakco. They are the leader in MRE's for the Military. There are 6 different complete meals per case (2 of each) and are all brand new. Each case comes with 12 mains (entree's 2 of each), 12 side dishes (applesauce ect.), 12 dessert packs (cookie bar ect.), 12 cracker packs (8 squares each), 12 spreads (jelly ect.), 12 beverage powders, 12 coffees, creamer, sugar, salt, napkin, wet nap and a spoon. 12 EVERYTHING'S! All individually packed in 12 New style Military water tight plastic bags shown in the picture. The case weighs 19 lbs and has a shelf life of 12+ years when stored under 60 Degrees (a closet floor is real close). MRE's are great for hunting, fishing, camping and emergencies. It's not about the END OF THE WORLD - It's not about surviving a hypothetical PLANE CRASH - It's about the SATISFACTION YOU GET knowing you can take care of yourself and/or your family in ANY SITUATION, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!
