YouTube has some videos of people discussing mre's and how they taste

I guess anything would taste pretty good if you were hungry enough.

On the subject of Tactical Bacon, I've heard the Tactical Sammich is pretty tasty as well:

But, 2 year shelf life so you'll have to rotate your stock fairly often.   Two flavors so far, Pepperoni, and Honey BBQ Beef.

I wondered the same thing this morning when Jess was telling me about watching videos about canning butter, I think it was uud40 that tried the experiment

Standard good ol' MRE. Skip the brown plastic bag ones, go for the current issue pink bag. Some are better than others - skip the five fingers of death (hot dogs) and ham slice...the vegetarian MREs are pretty good.

The white rice is good after you kick in 4 or 5 of the Tabasco bottles. It's even better after you warm it up.

Actually I love powdered peanut butter. I use it mixing into protein shakes, over ice cream. Lots of possibilities. In my case I got into it for the lack of fat calories in powdered peanut butter (45 per 2 tbsp as opposed to 200 per 2tbsp in regular PB)  In a survival situation that's not the case.

The flavor of the one I use is astounding. Roasted goodness and all.

Google "PB2".

 :lol: The McDonald's stuff is a learned behavior, more than an aquired taste.
However, speaking of longevity, I hear McDonalds food will look much the same after sitting on a shelf for several months.   :lol: :lol:
