Once again we have managed to get a limited supply of these MRE's. They are a special configuration made for emergency disaster relief by the same company that makes military MRE's. Where most cases of MRE's have 12 to a case, these have 16 meals in every case. There are 4 different meals in this batch, each case will typically have 4 each of beef ravioli, vegetable lasagna, chili-mac macaroni and beef in sauce, and cheese tortellini in tomato sauce. Each meal also has a snack, dessert or candy, crackers or bread, peanut butter or strawberry jam or cheese spread, iodized salt packet, spoon and moist towelette. In addition, each meal includes the heater- lots of MREs sold for less do not include the heaters.
These MRE's were produced in 2018 and purchased by the government agency that maintains a stock for disaster relief. There were kept in controlled storage at 50 degrees or less for maximum shelf life. At 50 degrees they have a MIMIMUM shelf life of 5 years, and our experience is that as long as you maintain the storage in cool spaces they are edible longer just like canned goods are- but the lawyers say that we have to say 5 years, so these are good by them at a minimum until 2023. Use your own judgement after that.
Please note that we have made sure we knew the chain of custody of these MREs from the factory to us so we know how they were stored. Storage in high heat shortens the life span considerably, even a few months in a hot warehouse or connex or trunk of someone's car will greatly reduce the shelf life. So while our MRE's may cost a little more it is because we take the effort to make sure they are the same kind of quality we would want for ourselves.
Limited quantity on these.
—- Shipping alert! If you are ordering multiple cases and get an error saying that shipping options are unavailable you may have to break your order into quantities of 4 cases or less. We are working g to correct this glitch but in the meantime breaking your order into multiple smaller orders is the way around it—-
