Bought these to replace some aging MRE's in our emergency supply storage container. Man, those MRE's were bad - I mean, just the basic taste. They hadn't gone bad, it was still edible - but 'edible' is really the nearest compliment I can give.
This is savory, full of beef and sauce and noodles. And easily enough for two people, even considering the massive amounts of food I normally consume. The long guaranteed lifetime is a huge plus - rotating stock out of emergency supplies every few years is a pain.
My only gripe - even though the instructions are very simple, some entrees take two cups of hot water, some take one and a half. Which means, old guy that I am, I have to turn on a light and dig out some glasses to check how much water is needed.
It'd really be great if they could devote a section of the back to large instructions, like most packaged product have nowadays - 'ADD 1.5 CUPS BOILING WATER, LET SIT EIGHT MINUTES, ENJOY'.
