This is an M.R.E., Meal Ready to Eat or as we like to call it “Three lies in one”. It’s a prepackaged food that’s easy to carry, has a fairly long shelf life and comes in a wide variety of “flavors”. If you don’t have an emergency food source stashed away already, these will keep you alive and they’re cost effective if you shop around for them…If you’re a chef, food critic or a picky eater, your experiences with this type of food may vary. Regardless, always have at least three days of food per person on hand up to date and ready to eat. Three days isn’t a long time but it will give you a little breathing room and time to think if there ever comes a day when the stores aren’t getting stocked or a loaf of bread goes up to $500.00 over night.
