    Foreign MREs

    My daughter, whom I love to death, is a little daredevil, student pilot and just a good damn kid..
    Well, she was going to military surplus stores and buying MRE's, C rations etc, and trying them out.
    She would lay them out, and eat and review them...
    Well, I went and ordered a French MRE for her.
    It wasnt the best financial thing I ever did, but, you only live once, and the smile she gave me when it finally came in from customs was worth it.
    Of course, she said it was great, but DID not wait for me to come home and share, lol.

    They look pretty good. How much additional cost did you pay over the $45? 24 hour MRE is certainly a different concept than the U.S. military has.

    It was about 12 more bucks, shipping and it did go through customs in Jamaica NY, from Germany..
    They have allot to look at and choose. I am going to research more on this.. I figure if I can find them stateside, or through friends overseas, maybe having a few odd ball ones like this would change things up a bit when camping or something..
    Supposedly some came with a little bit of liquor too.

    Money doesn’t matter as long as you combine reason with a realization of what is affordable.

    I was surprised at the editorial outcome on this issue. Since I assumed most of this food is canned when it clears customs, I wondered about the quality and safety, unless some items are randomly checked.

    Yes, I know we buy beer from Germany and Austria, but canned food might be different.

    I like the South Korean ones. We use to trade with them often
