“Plenty of you reading this have served in the US Armed Forces and are all too familiar with the old MRE’s (meal, ready to eat). Plenty more have run into them during disaster operations or when someone pulls one out of a bag when out camping. The content of these sealed pouches has changed quite a bit in the last two decades, let’s take a look at what a company like Meal Kit Supply has done to bring MRE’s to the top of the food chain.”
“There’s so much food here, you could eat some for lunch and save some for dinner. This is not dehydrated food. Instead, it comes with a heating packet activated by a tiny bit of water to warm up the entrée…They’re super easy to prepare and pretty tasty, too.”
“Our “8 For 22″ team used these meals on Denali during our summit push due to how time consuming it was to melt snow for water at 17,000 feet in elevation…These meals work well where dehydrated meals would struggle to re-hydrate fully due to the altitude…Overall gear rating: 4.5/5. Good choice when going on a high altitude mountaineering expedition.”
“I have to say my beef ravioli was off the chain. Hearty, tasty and warm. I could imagine this would be a dream meal on a cold night in the mountains…The “Bread & Spread’ segment of the meal was pretty delicious for a snack…Clean-up is a breeze…All in all we are fans of these products. We are all obsessed with the flameless ration heater.”
“Meal Kit Supply is a US-based company with a unique offering – their custom-designed MREs are assembled with an eye towards menu variety and meal diversity. You get more average calories per meal (more food!), more menu variety (10 vs. 6), breakfast items…makes Meal Kit Supply MREs worth the extra premium…unique Flameless Ration Heater…This FRH-wrapping feature also gives you room to be creative.”
“We have tried a lot of MREs before and had never seen tortillas and surprisingly they were good…Even picky eaters will have plenty to find…The real value that Meal Kit Supply provides is building full meals that make sense…there were breakfast options that I hadn’t see in other Case of 12 MREs.”
“We’ll be sticking with Meal Kit Supply’s MREs, or Meals, Ready to Eat, space efficient and hardy meal kits…your canned-food toting buddies will be more than a little envious of your satisfying 3-course meals with all the fixings…great for backcountry adventures, fishing, hiking, and lazy nights where cooking is far too much trouble.”
“Meal Kit Supply’s Apple Maple Oatmeal was the surprise hit of this testing. It reminded me of a nerd’s first girlfriend-pretty rough to look at, but very sweet and likable…The chili was rich and meaty, spicy and tasted almost homemade. Entrée Winner: Meal Kit Supply’s Chili with beans. Just like mom used to make!”
“I can’t stress how important it is to have a stockpile of emergency supplies and food on hand and to include MRE’s as part of your preparedness plan…Hurricane Sandy which struck New York…Store shelves were bare, people were looting and raiding any other remaining supplies and AFTER the hurricane had passed…[Meal Kit Supply MREs] actually tasted pretty good and on top of that they are large enough to fill you up.”
“Yes, they are that good…not starvation pseudo-MREs [like those] from some other companies. My entire family really liked the various MREs that were sent to me for testing – didn’t find any meals we didn’t like…I believe if you served someone one of these MREs, they would think you made the meal fresh yourself.”
“…MREs are proven reliable. If our military uses them you can bet that you could find reasons to use them too…The MREs from Meal Kit Supply tasted better than the food I ate many years ago so I am happy to recommend them to anyone looking for an MRE supplier.”
“I was very impressed by the fact that these MREs did not contain excessive dyes or other chemicals…Since the packets are also fairly light weight, you can easily put them in a bug out bag or carry them for long distances…Whether an earthquake strikes, Ebola erupts into a catastrophic epidemic, or some other disaster strikes…MREs from Meal Kit Supply LLC can be a lifesaver.”
“I was absolutely shocked when I took the first bite and realized that unlike the MRE rumors I had heard, the lasagna from Meal Kit Supply was absolutely delicious! It was seriously on par with Mom’s homemade spaghetti, the flavor was excellent and you could tell it was made with high quality ingredients…I highly recommend that you pick up a box of these MRE’s from Meal Kit Supply to include in your preps.”
“With this company, I have an excellent idea as to the expected shelf life of my MREs rather than an uncertain two years of storage with another company…The cocoa was a smash hit!…the freshness was very noticeable compared to another company’s maple muffin top that we had reviewed…could have very well passed for a homemade one”
“The vegetarian ratatouille was actually pretty tasty. It had vegetable pieces and sauce was flavorful. The strawberry shake tasted similar to Nesle’s Strawberry Quik; I think kids would like it…the MRE from Meal Kit Supply was fresher tasting than other MREs I have tried in the past. Prior to this sample, I have never finished one; in this case I actually ate the rest of it as my lunch.”
“Much wider variety of meals, especially with breakfast foods, and different deserts and sides…[The] Chicken with Noodles and Vegetables in Sauce was a spicy, Asian dish – very tasty [and] had a nice tang to it…Crunchy Peanut Butter – this stuff rocks! [The Vanilla Pudding] was a nice, thick pudding consistency, great vanilla flavor, and an all around great dessert.”
“Easy to open…What’s inside the MRE is listed on the outside of the bag which is awesome. The heaters in these MREs are great! They have very simple instructions and are much larger than the military version. Pork Patty. Lots of flavor, reminds me of the old ham slice but with more spice or a souped up Vienna sausage. Au Gratin Potatoes. My first WOW moment…These were great which meant I ate over half the package.”
“The case comes sealed very well and marked with easy to read information on the outside. Once opened the meals are packed into the cases very snugly. I like this because they have little chance to shift in the box…I tried most all of the meals and could not find even one that I did not really like.”
“As far as MREs go, Meal Kit Supply has an excellent product. If MREs are in your plan, you cannot go wrong with these people…In a survival situation, I am getting the [Potato Cheddar] soup. I like the soup. Good stuff…I am a fan of cheese and crackers and this hit the spot…One of the advantages with an MRE is that not everything needs water.”
“The pork sausage patty MRE was a nice change of pace from some of the usual breakfast entrees…On a scale of 1 to 10, I give [Chicken Fajita] an 8 (with 10 being reserved for homemade fajitas)…[Chili and Beans] tasted as good as, if not better, than the canned versions available in the grocery store…”
“These tasty, shelf-stable kits contain comfort foods like Chicken Fajitas, Vegetarian Lasagna, Spaghetti, Chili, Ratatouille, and Meatballs, as well as everything else you need for a hot meal in the backcountry…Also a great idea for hurricane season, tornado shelters, and emergency preparedness.”
“These little babies pack a mean punch! I always feel completely satisfied (if not a bit over satisfied) after eating one of these…These things come with a cookie that is to DIE for! I have on occasion eaten the cookie as I wait for the flameless heater to warm up my meal… dessert first is always in good taste. My grandma couldn’t do cookies this good.”
“MREs have a five-year shelf life, are pre-cooked and are easily heated with the included flameless ration heaters. There are absolutely no preservatives added and vegetarian assortments are available. Supply yourself with 1,200 calories per meal!”
“I have to say that Meal Kit Supply gives a lot of information with its products. The case itself has a lot of useful information for people who might not be too familiar with MREs.” GSchultz9 has done several reviews of Meal Kit Supply MREs. Please visit his channel to view them all!
