Have you ever ate a MRE? We bought several "platoon" size BBQ Rib MRE's. They smelled great but tasted like !@#$%^&* Yuckkkk. My dog didn't even want to eat it. First time it's invited the cats on the porch in 2 years. Our guys/gals deserve much better food than this crap. The "Cheese and Cracker" MRE turned out to be Austin Cheese Crackers Yup just like you buy at Wally World for $1.29 for 8 packs VS the $1.09 for 1 MRE. I will admit the ShortBread MRE and the Chocolate Filled Cracker MRE tasted OK, The Austin crackers were stale and the Date on the MRE was MARCH 2004. We tried several other MRE's and it just didn't get better. OK I vented hmmm seemed like it made me more PO'd thinking that someone that might get shot was eating the stuff than the $209 my wife and I invested on this "puke" food substitute.
