    Forget the propaganda. MRE shall ever mean “Meals Rejected by starving Ethiopians”.

    Tabasco sauce will forever be a friend to military personnel.

    @JeffS – and simple salt and pepper.

    That said – I assure you they would have been welcome – very welcome – to civilians after Hurricane Charley.

    Very welcome, as our frozen and refrigerated meats turned into…well…science experiments…and there were no grocers open because there was no electric (and darned near no transport with gas as scarce as it was). We managed, but a few “Meals Rejected by starving Ethiopians” would have been welcomed in America.

    Oh – and for the record, I lurves me some SOS. 😛

  4. JeffS says:

    No question that they are good when you’re hungry, Kathy, none at all!

    But say that after eating those things for 30 days straight. MREs are the ultimate in cafeteria food. Even badly cooked fresh food is heaven in comparison. That comment about “Meals Refusing to Exit” ain’t no joke! 🙂

    That said, I keep a selection in the freezer for emergencies. When you’re hungry, you’re HUNGRY!

    Every now and then you just HAVE to have some SOS Kathy…now I’m hungry!

    Or Spam. Mmmmmmm….Spam sammiches!!

    I sort of fondly remember Wolfburger in Desert Storm. A bunch of mobile burger stands serving up a nasty ass soy patty plain on a bun, not even ketchup with some fries and soda for free. Those gut bombs were heavenly after a couple months surviving on MREs.

    @ JeffS – I like spam too, go figure. (In moderation…)

    (NOT email spam, generally, although I did like some this site has posted.)
