    Default MRE's

    Does anyone purchase MRE's to keep on hand? I have been looking at them online and even on ebay they seem to be very expensive.

    I just bought one at walmat to try and paid $6 for it. It was Freeze dried so you just had to add Hot water to it.

    It was not to bad. That is about the going price that I have found. It also depends on what company you get them from.

    I notice that all the companies that sell MRE's make it the same and charge more or you don't have much of a product choice.

    I thinking of just getting myself a food saver and make my own food and bag it thet way I could make my food the way I want it.

    Think about this if you got a Food Saver you can make big pots of your favorite meals and bag in small meals size, also you would have just as much shelf life as the MRE's.


    If you look online you can fine plans to make your own dehydrater yourself.

    Yeah, MRE's are expensive compared to what you can make for yourself.

    Lol, My uncle got hundreds of these for me since his mate was in charge of supplys at his base in the army, he also gave me about a black bag worth of lightsticks as well as a winter hat and a pair of light weight DPM trousers and a sleeping bag

    I could get all that off him but he retired for some medical reason

    I loved them, i liked the hot chocolate the most and the chocolate cake, also the boiled sweets where better than some ive had out of a sweet shop

    God i want some of them

    hey everyone, just wanted to point out that those dehydrated meals are not MREs, MREs have all necessary water contained in them.
    Tony, you dont know how lucky you are, real military MREs are all but impossible for civillians to get.

    Talking I have some ......

    Hi,

    I have a few of the Canadian Forces MRE's .... I teach outdoor ed and the groups we get sometimes are cadets and they get to use the real MRE's the reg force guys use.

    I can give you a list of the exact contents if you're interested, but good luck trying to find a place to buy them ....

    Cheers'

    Default Meals Ready for Ebay

    After the Katrina disaster the government handed out thousands of MRE's as emergency food for the survivors. Suddenly Ebay was deluged with MRE's for sale.

    Now they are known as Meals Ready for Ebay!

    MRE's are pretty good! My brother is in the millitary and he's got a great big box in the hall closet. He likes to have them around incase there's like a giant natural disaster, or something like that. or maybe he likes them better than real food.

    Anyways i wouldn't know the actual price range. $6 sounds about right.
