    MRE’s over the years have gotten better and better. The 2018 MRE’s really aren’t that bad, well most of them 🙂

    i think you should try all the different MRE’s from different countries, would be fun to see, what country has the tastiest MRE

    • David Jankowski says:

      when i was in Afghan the Afghan National Army that we were working with had Kosher meals called Halal Meals, they were amazing. We would take boxes of them for ourselves. They had things lamb and bagel ships, it was all Kosher which made them delicious. I would rank them as the best or the ones we stole from the Air Force guys that never left the FOB.

    • PyroNinja713 says:

      +David Jankowski Halal and Kosher are similar, but two entirely different dietary restrictions for two entirely different religions.

  7. Koko says:

    Please do another one with Steve from Steve1989MREInfo! That would be….

    Hey for the taco meal, don’t forget the accessory pack that has a hot sauce/salsa pack and a seasoning pack. It really helps the taco meat “wake up”. Most of the meals come with a condiment of some sort. And you need to drink the powdered drink mix or instant coffee. Your missing the best part! And don’t forget to eat the gum! Save a bunch of the gum and chew a bunch all at once. LoL. (it may or may not be a laxative) the mint gum is better than the cinnamon gum.

  9. scottcol23 says:

    Hey don’t forget to chew the Gum!

  10. scottcol23 says:

    au gratin means to cover something with cheese and bread crumbs and then brown it in the oven to give it a golden crunch…

    • Mermaid Atlantica says:

      Gratin (French pronunciation: ​[ɡʁatɛ̃]) is a widespread culinary technique in which an ingredient is topped with a browned crust, often using breadcrumbs, grated cheese, egg and / or butter. Gratin originated in French cuisine and is usually prepared in a shallow dish of some kind.

      Potatoes dauphinois with cheese is Potatoes Dauphinoise Au Gratin. The Au Gratin signifies cheese and breadcrumbs.

    • julienfdm says:

      +Mermaid Atlantica well I’m french (and an ex-chef) and there’s no cheese in a gratin dauphinois , if you add cheese in it it’s called a “gratin Savoyard” so “gratin” = not necessarily cheese or bread crumbs in it (for exemple a “cassoulet gratiné” contains bread crumbs but no cheese…) Hope my English is on my point though because I left school years ago ?

    • scottcol23 says:

      +julienfdm your English is better than many people that speak it as their native language. LoL

    • Dr. Fittentick says:

      +Mermaid Atlantica julien is right

    • MyGenSucks says:

      Gotta buncho chefs in here

  11. Sarah Shae says:

    I’ve seen my husband eat hundreds of these on FaceTime while he’s away in the Marine Corps! He watches GMM when he can and he really enjoyed this one, also said you got the ranking 100% correct?

  12. scottcol23 says:

    The metallic taste in the meals is from the vitamins they fortify it with. They try to get a whole day of nutrients into one meal. These meals are designed to give you enough calories and vitamins for a whole day in case you only get a chance to eat once a day. These are not designed to be eaten every day for an extended period of time. They are for combat field use. Once you are not in a combat situation you would eat normally prepared food. MRE’s will definitely stop you up if you eat them for a long time… Hence the reason they give you the laxative gum.

    • Eric Breen says:

      That’s not correct, a common misconception is that they’re designed for 1 meal a day but that’s just not true. MRE’s are made to be eaten 3 times a day and everything added to them is balanced for that. Don’t believe me? Look it up, super easy to find. We definitely didn’t eat MRE’s deployed that often, chow halls get set up. It’s also a myth about the gum being a laxative. It has xylitol in it, that’s about it. And the food isn’t designed to stop you up either, it’s just the way it is, it’s a change in your diet and your body reacts accordingly, eventually you’d get more regular, and if you eat the real bad ones it will have the opposite effect.

    • Anon _rah says:

      +missychelle33 Yes. You get chefs to set up tents and cook for you and your boys.

    • missychelle33 says:

      Jonathan Martin well I’m not really informed on it that’s all. I’ve watched shows like Army Wives lol and they seemed to eat them a ton. So I guess I assumed.

    • missychelle33 says:

      Anon _rah well that’s good! That’s how it should be! I would think they would try to bring some comforts of home to the people who are sacrificing everything for our country. They deserve so much more.

    • Illyasviel Von Einzbern says:

      scottcol23  That’s a myth. It’s just gum. Mint and Caffeine are natural diahrettics, but they’re not expressly included as to induce shitting.

    I genuinely feel like Link dies a bit inside when Rhett doesn’t dink it.

  14. Tessa Baird says:

    Not gonna lie, when I go on really long camping trips I’ve taken MRE’S they’re bomb ??? sometimes they have desserts too

  15. Fluffymonkeyem says:

    Crazy Russian Hacker would have been great on this one. He does tons of MRE tests on his side channel

  16. Smart Rapper says:

    You guys are pretty dang awesome. Get your money! Stay Smart! I know I will 🙂

  17. deprofundis says:

    You guys had wayyyy too much fun with what MRE could stand for in this game… ?

  18. MrDanish ButterCookie says:

    Dang if Steve 1989 was a guest that would’ve been awesome

  19. Dawn Louis-Jean says:

    my dad was one of the developers of MRE’s. we ate A LOT of them during the taste-test stage. i used to love the beef stroganoff one they had. also a chicken a la king one. i don’t think they offer either of them anymore. on a side note, when my dad died, our family member ate MREs in his honor. 🙂

  20. Mallorie Louann says:

    I actually have an uncle named Chad in the Army and he gives us MRE’s all the time. I would not recommend the peanut butter and jelly though. Lol.
