U.S. MARINE CORPS FORCES, PACIFIC, CAMP H. M. SMITH, Hawaii (01-03-2006) -- If you are tired of trying to make Meal-Ready-to-Eat menus more palatable, then your search may be over.

The field rations have progressed a long way from the C-rats of the past, and they continue to change even to this day.

Four of the current 24 MREs have been removed and are being replaced by new and improved menus, according to the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center, located in Natick, Mass.
Usually the ASSC only replaces two MREs a year, but this year they wanted to give the list a boost in variety.

“There was a lot of negative feedback on these four MREs, we couldn’t narrow it down to just two,” said Judith Aylward, the MRE Improvement project manager.

Country Captain’s Chicken, Thai Chicken, Beef Teriyaki and Pasta with Vegetables have all been scratched off the MRE menu.

The ASSC has come up with four new main meals and an assortment of new sides and candies approved by servicemembers by suggestion or taste tests.

“If there were four MRE boxes with one MRE left in each, all of them would be Country Captain’s Chicken,” said Sgt. Rusty Campbell, who while deployed in Afghanistan, had eaten MREs for 35 or more days straight. “If you got stuck with one, you just took everyone else’s Tabasco sauce and made the best of it.”

The four new meals include a penne pasta dish, chicken fajitas with soft tortillas, Sloppy Joe sauce to put on wheat snack bread and a cheese omelet breakfast meal.

The new meals were put on trial to ensure quality.

“All of our meals are put through field tests, which allows us to see how well the new meals fare against the current menus,” said Aylward.

The Operational Forces Interface Group is a team that takes surveys from Marine and Army installations throughout the nation. These surveys are used to get an accurate look at what the servicemembers enjoy, and what they just throw back in the box.

“Troop preference is the biggest consideration. We can make the meal fit every regulation, but if you don’t like it you’re not going to eat it,” said Aylward.

The new meals did well in recent taste tests with chicken fajitas being the favorite.

“I might be a little cautious about eating chicken fajitas from an MRE, but the idea does sound fairly appetizing,” said Sgt. Wayne R. Welty, a security specialist at Marine Corps Forces, Pacific.

Main meals are not the only thing needed to make an MRE the gourmet meals they are; sometimes little treats can make an unpopular meal great.

Snacks like the cinnamon scone and the orange carbohydrate drink, which has a strong resemblance to Gatorade, both scored high in the taste test. However, one item surpassed them all; Walnettos, a caramel and walnut flavored candy.

“The Walnettos went over surprisingly well, so we have started to work on a similar chocolate flavored candy,” said Alyward. “We have also been looking at adding more commercial items such as M&M’s, which are big moral boosters.”

Coming up with new menu ideas is a rather large challenge. Nutritionists like Alyward have to meet all sorts of standards.

These standards include nutritional value, weight & volume, and variety. There are even certain stipulations that require MREs to be made with only American-made products.

“There are so many factors to juggle, but the by far the most influential one is whether or not you like them,” said Alyward.

There shouldn’t be too much to worry about if you don’t like the taste of some of the items. Chances are if a lot of people share your opinion, the item will be gone by next year.

According to Alyward, the items for 2006 and 2007 have already been selected and the list for 2008 will be approved sometime in Feb. 2006.

“In the end, we may complain about it but we will still eat it,” said Campbell. “Its just a bonus if it tastes edible.”

Here is a sneak preview at the items slated for 2006 and 2007.

2006 What’s in:
· HooAH! Bar
· Chili with beef
· Tuna fish
· Mango peach apple sauce
· Raisin nut mix with pan coated chocolate discs

Tabasco tastes like fermented shit; Chalula's hot sauce is frickin' awesome.

It's been ten years since I've had an MRE and I'm curious to try the discontinued ones before they're all dried up. Anybody feel like sending me a free MRE or two they don't like or are near expiration so I can try them out?

Music to my ears.

What the hell were they thinking when they cooked that vile recipe up.

Country Captain Chicken was good right after it came out. It was a spicy little curry surprise, but didn't take long to get really, really old.

I'm surprised they're bring back another evolution of the MRE omelette. The idea of being stuck with #4 (I think) "Omelette w/Ham" still turns my stomach.

No.

I don't get why they keep introducing exotic shit that doesn't even taste decent.

I never have understood it. They can put a man on the fucking moon but they can't pack a meal that doesn't taste like Elmer's Glue with a disgusting sauce.

Thai chicken. Of all the meals in the world, they pick the one that is least likely to have ever been taste by the average American soldier.

Country Captain Chicken. I never even heard of that before.

For God's sake, vacuum seal something that people in America eat on a regular basis.

mmmmm I love that wheat bread snack with jalapaneo sauce over it!
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 4:44:50 PM EDT
This article is pretty out-dated cuz those new mre's came out like 2 months ago. So far I like the fajita the best (maybe out of all of them), omelet is just ok, sloppy joe is too sloppy and gets everywhere and tastes just ok, and I like all the pasta meals.

I'm happy to see country captain go. Nasty suff. They also added new plastic bags to mix up the beverage powders. Way useful.

All mres still suck imo though.
Link Posted: 1/4/2006 4:46:10 PM EDT
thank god, possibly the worst mre ever, even worse than omlette with ham, and im allergic to eggs.

to bad about the cajun rice sausage though, that was pretty damn good heated up with hot cheese spread in it.

i miss the beef franks though, they were good as a snack.

as long as they don't fuck with beef ravioli i will remain a happy camper, when they pull that one it will be my sign to stop reupping.

HAHAAHA !

The first time that I ever opened one I had been saving it for a couple days and waiting to eat it for breakfast. Another Marine and I were on OP/LP early in the morning and I finally decided to eat my breakfast.

Oh yuck ! Green eggs and ham !!! I alsmost puked when I put it in my mouth. I ended up slinging it out into the boonies.

Many months later I was a little late to the MRE cases and all that was left were 7 Omlette& Hams. I whined, pleaded and cried to my fellow Marine's that this was not fair but they just acted like nobody heard me. I was able to acquire a taste for the damn things by heating them up and adding a little salt, a heated cheese spread and Tobasco sauce. Sometimes if I was real hungry I would add one cracker to the mix.

Hell, after awhile I got to where it was all I wanted to eat. For the remainder of my years in the Corps I would ALWAYS raid the MRE cases early and pick out good meals. I would remove the main entree and maybe a powdered beverage and pack the rest into my ALICE pack. I always had tons of TP =)

I would then search out those Marines unfortunately stuck with Omlette& Ham and trade them a GOOD entree for a complete Omlette& Ham MRE. My trades were hardly ever turned down =)

I wish I had an ol' Omlette&Ham just for good ol' times sake.

My favorite is the Chicken with Salsa.

Country Captain Chicken = fucksnot in a bag. It really does suck, and I would rank it up there with the Chili Mac MRE.

Eat any of the MREs long enough and your sweat and pee will smell like the ever-present acidic tomato-ish sauce that they use as a base for almost every meal.

Damn, those bastards are getting rid of both the cajun meals. Don't think it'll affect the rest of my tour, though, I think we just finished the '04s last month!

I never had a problem with Country Captain Chicken. They fucked it up last year by taking out the buttered noodles. Country Captain Chicken + Buttered Noodles + Tobasco = good eatin!

I have limited experience with MRE's .
Mainly because I haven't ever been forced
to survive on them , but the 5-6 I have tried
were pretty nasty .

I understand that Mil-Spec has something to
do with it , but come on . I have eaten other
commercially available freeze dried and vacuum
packed camping/survival food that looked smelled
and tasted 10 times better .

Would it really be so hard to supply decent food
to the troops out there who have no choice but
to eat this stuff ?

It is the single worst MRE there is. Even the new omelette is just a tad better than it.


I wouldnt wish CCC upon my worst enemy to eat for 10years straight.

I have several boxes of pork BBQ...YUM!!

I dont understand all of the griping about MREs. Ive yet to eat one that wasn't VERY good. The only nit I can pick is that the bottle of hot sauce should be 3 or 4 times bigger and ALL MREs MUST come w/ cheese spread.

Oh, I thought the dehydrated beef patties were excellent...sort of a crunchy burger and not messy at all.

Country Captain Chicken – A curried chicken dish. The chicken is browned and then stewed in a sauce of tomatoes, onion, garlic, and curry powder. At the end, golden raisins are added. The dish is served over rice sprinkled with toasted almonds. As with all chicken recipes in the South, Country Captain Chicken varies with the cook. Some recipes call for a long cooking time and other use quick-cooking chicken breasts. One thing is always certain about this dish; it is perfumed and slightly spiced with curry.

The Hobson Jobson Dictionary
states the following:

COUNTRY-CAPTAIN. This is in Bengal the name of a peculiar dry kind of curry, often served as a breakfast dish. We can only conjecture that it was a favourite dish at the table of the skippers of ‘country ships,’ who were themselves called ‘country captains,’ as in our first quotation. In Madras the term is applied to a spatchcock dressed with onions and curry stuff, which is probably the original form. [Riddell says: “Country-captain.—Cut a fowl in pieces; shred an onion small and fry it brown in butter; sprinkle the fowl with fine salt and curry powder and fry it brown; then put it into a stewpan with a pint of soup; stew it slowly down to a half and serve it with rice” (Ind. Dom. Econ. 176).]

1792.—“But now, Sir, a Country Captain is not to be known from an ordinary man, or a Christian, by any certain mark whatever.”—Madras Courier, April 26.

c. 1825.—“The local name for their business was the ‘Country Trade,’ the ships were ‘Country Ships,’ and the masters of them ‘Country Captains.’ Some of my readers may recall a dish which was often placed before us when dining on board these vessels at Whampoa, viz. ‘Country Captain.’”—The Fankwae at Canton (1882), p. 33.

This delicious dish, known throughout Georgia, dates to the early 1800s. It is thought that this dish was brought to Georgia by a British sea captain who had been stationed in Bengali, India and shared the recipe with some friends in the port city of Savannah, Georgia. Savannah was then a major shipping port for the spice trade. The dish was named for the officers in India called “Country Captains.”

In the 1940s, Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945), 32nd President of the United States and General George S. Patton (1885-1945), U.S. Army General, were served this dish in Warm Springs, Georgia, by Mrs. W. L. Bullard. Their praise and love of this dish helped to rekindle its Southern classic status. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who first gave national recognition to Warm Springs when, in 1924, he visited the town's naturally heated mineral springs as treatment for his polio related paralysis. Roosevelt was so enchanted with Warm Springs that he built the only home he ever owned here - a modest, six room cottage called the Little White House which served as a relaxing, comfortable haven for him.



Any dish involving "perfumed" aromas will not survive as an MRE entree.

yep, anybody sending care packages overseas really needs to send some real hot sauce. chalulas is one of my favorites but i sent 2 69cent bottles of louisiana hot sauce to a buddy in baghdad and he sold one bottle to a buddy of his for $30 after a bidding war between some other guys after they saw them.................

BTW, i checked and i don't have any country captain chicken but of the list i do have thai chicken, beef teriyaki and chicken tetrazzini. the chicken tetrazzini stays with me but i may be willing to unass one of the other two. fairly fresh stuff too, 4344

Yes... yes I have!

They even came with four cigarettes in the package!

You all have it so good now. C rats were just something to survive!

Lord help you if you got stuck with the Ham and mutherfuckers (ham and lima beans). The omlet in a can was an experience too.

One can opener per case. It took a bit to get a "John Wayne" (P38 can opener) for everyone. It had a hole to put it on your dogtag chain. BRILLIANT idea! Until it came open when you were sleeping and you rolled over on it!

Then there were LRRPs (Lurps). The meal before the MRE. Packaged much the same, but dehydrated. You had to add water to the main course. What no water to spare or on the go... what a goof! BUT they ended up becoming MRE.

Yes, I ate C-rats.Just before we left Berlin is when we got the first generation MRE's.As I said I'd eat C-rats before chicken ala puke. Chalula's is one we sent and a bunch of different ones and different strengths also. My brother gets some in Texas that we can not find up here. Between the 2 of us we keep him well supplied.
