    MREs are really not too bad. I ate ‘em going through survival training in the Air Force. I also ate K-Rations before MRE came out. The MRE were a big improvement, though I wouldn’t order them in a restaurant.

    I don't think that's a bad idea, but I'm someone who has two weeks of non perishable supplies assembled as part of my personal emergency kit, which includes MREs, sanitizer, water treatment, first aid, etc. There are actually lower sodium MREs available, but the salt content is lower relative to the regular ones and not actually low salt food. These supplies have to be rotated out and replaced periodically. It is definitely an investment of time and money to keep up a kit, though components can be assembled over time.

    Yeah, with all these shortages, pretty soon we'll be using our vodka as a disinfectant.

    I have been tracking back to find out what an MRE is and whether I should have stocked up on them. Please enlighten me, someone!

    MRE means Meals Ready To Eat. They replaced K-Rations ( army grub) in the military. I think they sell them now in outdoorsy stores. The meals are in plastic bags, and one adds water and shakes ‘em up. There’s other stuff to use or eat in the box too.

    Not too bad if one is hungry. Bon Appetit!
