Pentagon cooks up new MRE kits for U.S. troops

  • Ajoutée 2 nov. 2015
  • The diet of America's armed forces is about to get an overhaul. Troops have been eating MREs, or "Meals Ready to Eat," in combat and training for nearly 35 years. Now, the menu is getting its biggest change in decades. Mark Albert reports on the taste of the future.

    I saw this when I was a junior in high school for the 1st time. I finally had a pizza MRE at my JRTC rotation. It wasn’t bad

    Dissapointed they didn't discuss the constipating traits of MRE's, and their best acronym: Meals Refusing to Exit.

    Of course when asked by media what this PFC would like in a MRE he said pizza. Fake news that he would state just what they wanted him to say and a sample for him to try. MRE's for the most part are and always will be bad. When they rotate them at a set time for meals each month if you have a good company cook they can and do find ways to make them acceptable to eat. If you have a bad cook then forget about eating in the mess hall that day. I was drafted and served and the only time I had bad feet was after a forced five mile march with a full pack pack on but on those days if you had to eat MRE's it was a time to remember.

    I know people five mre's a bad rap, but honestly I don't mind the taste. I just add some spices that makes it taste even better. Important though is that it doesnt taste too good. Unhealthy food tastes amazing (think McDonalds or even just some chicken or beef bought at Chipotle) because of preservatives and extra added stuff.

    Keep those troops chowed up. They deserve it. But take some advice from this old devil dog...drink a canteen of water behind each meal. A WHOLE canteen. Or I promise your next bowel movement will be...interestingly uncomfortable.

    I ate alot of MREs while I was in the army and I found them very good. Of course there were some nasty ones, but that's why they make a variety.
