Could it be true

www.armygear.net/ag/store/0120.html


Ordered some to see.



*****UPDATE*******UPDATE**********

Got them today, ordered them on the 24th. They appear to be made with in the last 2 years or so. all 24 came loose in one big box not in individual cases. This made it easier for storage. For me atleast. But packed in seperate case would have been better.

Shipped to me was109.48 total.

here's a link to an ebay auction for 2 cases, 1 each of A and B cases, for 69.98 plus 26 shipping(to me). I've ordered from him and he got them to me in 2 days. Good commo and real deal MRE's. I recommend them. 1st inspection date of 09/09. New menu.

Buy me a couple of cases and ship them to me! All my local guys are near $100 a case. One surplus store had them marked at $115 per case. BSW

If you get the new ones they are not really that bad! Just stay away from the eggs and you should be good. When I was getting out back in 2006 we started getting some really good MRE's in also we got these things call "First Strike" rats and they where good. They had a hotpocket and flavored Tuna I do wish they would let us eat more of them.

There was a guy at a local flea market selling them for $30 a case or $2.50 each for individual sales.


He's not there anymore... I wonder why

They emailed me back saying they were PACKED in 2006.

There were TONS of Katrina MREs that went online or out the back doors that year.

(I picked up a couple cases back then for a good price, less than 5 months after packing date... still in my 60 F basement)

I've just order 2 cases (A+B). The total is $109.48 shipped to Texas. The guy on the phone said that it is real military MRE. The MRE will be removed from the original box and shipped separtely because the box is too heavy. Everything is included except the original cardboard box. He said that if you were to show up at the retail store, you could pick up the MREs in their original box. I'll take pictures and have a taste test when I get them. He said that it'll ship on Monday.

Manufacturing date is 2006 and Inspection date is 2009.

Okay, Okay....I'll level with you guys. Some of the contents of MREs taste great, but I usually have to piecemeal something together. The absolute worst thin in MREs is that "wheat snack bread"...horrible! Its probably what they had at the Last Supper. In MS, I put a bit on a huge ant mound and the ants made a collective effort to move that nasty piece of crap away from their domain. These newer MREs are offering things like "Cheese Omelet", which already sounds untrustworthy. I am not eating an "egg" that's been in a plastic bag for extended periods of time and cooked with steam. Finally, does anybody else notice how your bowels cease to function for days after consuming an MRE?

I've never had a problem with anything included in an MRE.

I guess some people are just picky eaters...

Cheese Omelet is a bad one if it does not make you sick you will have bad gas for the next day or two from them. MREs are made to make your bowels cease I've gone a whole week with out going. One of the MRE myths was that the chewing gum they gave you was a laxative. I also noticed some MREs do not back you up like the grilled chicken. I was also told by a Corpsman that MREs where made that some backed you up and others helped you go and they way they should be eaten is that everyone get one box and eats all the MREs in them and they should be fine but that never happened because people with more weight on the collar liked only the good ones.

There are a lot of Myths around the MREs. Like don't eat the Charms there bad luck and a few other ones there was a post started by me I can't find it in the Archives right now but I'll keep looking.

bblake00, what is the manufacture date on your meals? Are they mix and match with different dates? According to the sales person, each group of 12 packets should have the same dates since they came out of the same case. Please let me know. Thanks!

I've just learned that one thing about not shipping the MRE with it's case is that you don't get to see the TTI (time and temperature indicator)
Link Posted: 8/1/2007 6:57:02 AM EDT
bblake00 did you get the meals yet? or are we still waiting for delivery?

I believe the production dates on those are Jan 4, 2006 and Jan 8, 2006.
Sounds like a good deal to me

My four cases arrived today. I really do wish that the meals were in their original case. I opened two meals and both were from January 06. I emailed the vendor to see if I could get the meals in the original cases. We will see if that works.
Link Posted: 8/3/2007 4:40:40 PM EDT
I got mine also. When I ordered, nothing was said about the meals coming lumped in one big box. I called after the delivery and they sent the original boxes separately but you don't know if the box dates corresond with the loose meals or not. I guess the buyer should beware, but who would expect this?
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 3:54:51 PM EDT
Go my 3 on Saturday along with my other stuff...
LBE Vest
Alice Pack
Pistol belt
M16 Mag pouches
Sleeping bag
Etc....

If you have not checked out there other gear do so..

Shipping was 18 bucks

I posted earlier that they don't come in the original box.

Yeah, it's buyer beware because I was told that all of them would be from 2006 but one of my meal is from 2005. You really don't know how old they are without the original box and you don't know which ones to eat first because you can't see the date until you open the package. it sucks... I think the price is alright. The meals don't taste that great. It's something to eat, but it's nothing that I would be craving for. This is my opinion. I think next time I would give APack a try.

P.S.
The menu I received was 13 to 24 X2 each.
