As stated, they go for about 60-70 $US per case of 12 meals. Not sure how much it would cost to ship it to China. What kind of food does the Peoples Liberation Army have for it's troops in the field?

Why buy that crap? I'm using a case of them for a foot rest right now. Stop by and you can have them for free.

The price of a round trip plane ticket from China to TX just for a case of MRE’s?

You can always enlist IN the US military to do that. And yes, I know you are in China.

Thanks,



Also, Tiengulden, keep in mind that some of the meals are pretty good, and some are not so well liked. The military tries to rotate new meals into the cases to keep the troops happy, but you probably know how hard it is to please everyone. They are also made to suit US tastes, and may not appeal to you. But good luck anyways.

Good pictures. Any idea as to what the contents are? I imagine some sort of rice-based dishes, but it's hard to identify what's in them.

I hope they issue more than 3 flavors (one for Northern soldiers, and one for Southern). That would become very tiresome rather quickly. The US MREs have 24 different flavors, so it is somewhat easier to eat them long term. The troops still complain though.

I have eaten some and while they are generally okay, I would not like to have to eat them for weeks at a time. I have also tried the older meals from the 1980s/early 1990s, and the newer meals are far superior, although I do miss some of the older flavors. Some were very good indeed.

I have actually sent food to some troops in Iraq to help relieve the food boredom and remind them of home.

Let us know what you think of the meal Stove Pipe sends you.

I served in the U.S. ARMY 1985-1989 .. I had the first Generation MRE's. They was rough. But after you been liveing in the woods for a week or two the pork patty and beef patty became very good.
Your three food pouches look very good and tasty. Glad you you posted. WarDawg

If you can send one, I'll swap you one of ours for one of yours. If your government frowns on that sort of thing, IM me your address and I'll send you one of ours.

We have 24 different meals, all of them taste like crap. But they provide all of the basics and plenty of calories. They are also a cure for diarrhea.

I do not have enough money to China MRE sent to everyone.
If you need, I can buy some and then sent to you a personal, and then distributed to everyone he could.

I think Tiengulden is offering to send a quantity to one person, and that the person recieving them can distribute them to other people here wanting to get in on the group swap. I'll volunteer to be the organiser if interest is still there..

In fact, this is designed in accordance with MRE.

Now I do not know whether things sent to the United States. I do not know whether to allow US Customs import such food, I know that the US has strict food control laws.

I doubt there is a problem since it is not a commercial import and all the food items are sealed or cooked (no raw food).

I sometimes wish that food import wasn't so tightly controlled--if military surplus foods could be imported commerically we could collect those in addition to foreign guns and ammo.

It might actually be possible to commercially import Chinese Army MREs if they were made in special runs for the US market. My local Asian store is full of various canned foods, noodles, candy, tea from China (mushrooms and oysters are mostly what I buy).

Again, this should not be a problem if they are sent as a "gift". For example you could mail cookies to your relatives in the USA, and there should be no problem. The worst thing that could happen is Customs would throw out the food, but it's very unlikely.

I have brought in food from overseas numerous times on airplanes. I just let the USDA inspector know what I have and it's never a problem.
