    MIL was good for canned good 30 years old....
    Then would say..."Does smell ok to you?"
    Not any more.

    Actually.... I will no longer be stashing MRE's.....all in all I think they are expensive, shelf life is OK....but the SHTF keep getting postponed?

    This reminds me of an old George Carlin bit about food found in the refrigerator.

    "'Do you want to eat this? If you don't, I'm going to throw it away.' In other words: This is trash, but if you want to eat it, it's okay by me."

    "Does anyone want this last pudding? It's only pulled away from the bowl two inches."

    "Is this any good?" "What's it smell like?" [sniffs] "It has no smell whatsoever." "Put it back. It's still good."

    "What's this? Could be meat. Could be cake."

    Back when I was in the force here, we had cans. Now they have the freezedryed stuff like everyone else. I remember one specific that was little white sausages in a bland tomato sauce, pretty much like the sauce from heinz canned beans. It was called "Dead mans fingers" and it looked the part. Awful.

    I only buy freezedried stuff if Im going out on a long hike, but I rather just pick items I want myself and dehydrate and vacpac it. I dont shelf it. I don't think it's worth the money with premade mre's.
