New MREs Get Mixed Reviews

The Smoking Gun reports that the Army is preparing to deploy a new line of MREs ('Meals Ready to Eat,') which were tested and reviewed by 400 soldiers at Fort Greeley, Alaska. They have the feedback sheets from their reviewers, and they are pretty funny to read:

The vanilla pudding is so good that I ripped it open. Licked the inside and rolled around on top of it like a dog. I prefer not to eat anything called loaf but this time I made an exception... thank God I did.

*** The cheese spread? GO YANKEES!!

Substituted Tabasco sama with *** hot sauce gummy bears inside

[I don't understand that last one, but eewww... -- the Editor]

I believe it was the dinner meal that caused this (chicken and dumplings) but it sounded like a flatulence symphony in my tent all night...

Needs more toilet paper totally not enough when you need it. Should allow people other than military personnel test the food and make decisions of that. Soldiers will eat this nastiness no matter what, because we have to eat. You should make better food for the people that ensure you have a job.

The new menus are here. If you want to buy some to taste yourself, may God have mercy on your soul.

All I can say is that MREs are far better than frozen "Jimmie Deans" on a December morning at Ft. Drum or 3 weeks in the box at NTC eating "heater meals".
