I have a very high metabolism and this entire meal did a decent job of filling me up. All in all I would, without a doubt, buy more of this brand of MRE.
My biggest problem with the single pack was that there was no date on the outside so I do not know how long ago it was made. I ate the meal an hour ago, and at the time of this review, I am still alive. So that's a good thing.
After serving as a chaplain in the Guard for 6 years I have had plenty of experience eating MRE's. When I was a Boy Scout they took us for a camping trip and we had C Rations. I thought it was a great experience because I felt like I was in the Army. Let me tell you that MRE's are a great improvement over c rats. As an officer I always had enlisted personnel eat first so I would wind up with what ever wasn't chosen by the majority. You had to have a fire or sterno can to cook the c rat entree, which was in a can. That meant having to lug that around and if you didn't have a can opener then you had to use your knife. With MRE's there is a heat pouch that you put your entree pouch in and pour a small amount of water in it and return it to the entree box with it leaning against something like a rock. The water causes a chemical reaction with the powder sealed in the heater pouch and that thing gets super hot really quick and cooks your entree in a couple of minutes. The biggest drawback, which always happened to me, is that you have to be very careful opening the top of the pouch or the super hot steam would burn you. I always got burned because for some reason I couldn't open the flap and get my hand out of the way. Lol. I look back at it and laugh now but it wasn't funny then. I say all that to explain that you can have a hot meal in a matter of minutes with an MRE. They're great to have in the field and a great emergency food source. The entree is printed on the outside of the pouch so you know what your getting before opening it. And if you got one you didn't like then hopefully you can find someone to trade with. I've seen some interesting things offered to entice a trade. Lol
The most interesting thing to me is that you saw guys bragging about what dessert they got like M&Ms, a candy bar and in my experience the most coveted was pound cake over what their entree was.
Now for the recipe. In the field you are often staying awake for long periods of time. To sleep while on guard duty was a serious offense and during war you could be shot for it. As a chaplain I didn't have to pull guard duty but would be awake during fire watch sometimes as this was a good time to get to know the soldiers in my care. I'm not a coffee drinker as I'm not a fan of hot beverages so I missed out on the coffee caffeine. Inside an MRE there is a tiny bottle of Tabasco sauce and I have seen soldiers rub it under their eyes to help them stay awake. I have even heard of some putting it in their eyes but I never personally saw that. Inside an MRE you get a condiment pack that contains Tabasco sauce, instant coffee, cocoa powder, sugar, salt/pepper, coffee creamer, a ration of toilet paper and a pack of 2 Chiclets which children overseas love. There is a dish you can make called "Ranger Pudding". I don't know if the Rangers actually came up with the recipe but that's what it's called. To make it you open your packet of cocoa powder and pour in your instant coffee, sugar and creamer packs with a little water and stir it with the long spoon you get. Then you eat it out of the cocoa pouch and it gives you a caffeine rush that will help you stay awake or give you a boost of energy. It's not bad and a great use for some of the things you may not want (like my coffee and creamer). So if you get an MRE give it a try and see if it doesn't work for you too.
Now I've said all of this to say that MREs are a great emergency food source or to put in your pack to go hiking, hunting, camping, etc...
