I have been after this one for a while ever since Youtube Emmymadeinjapan did her review for it, and instead of doing a video review I will just blog about it. I will also link to other Youtube channels I watch that review MRES too since I’ve been doing this for a while. I’m still trying to get a handle on being in front of a camera, so that’s why I will review some but not others on camera. At some point I’ll get over it to the point where I will have no issue with doing video reviews.
Here is the review. Items it comes with: Meatballs in Marinara Sauce, Au Gratin Potatoes, Wheat snack bread twin pack, First Strike energy bar, flameless ration heater, cheese spread, orange based powder, spoon, gum, toilet tissue, coffee and creamer, salt, splenda, and moist towelette.
The entree tastes pretty good like the ones that come in a can. The meatballs are tender, and it tastes good. The potatoes taste good too, and it feels like a real meal to eat. The first strike energy bar doesn’t taste bad either, and once you add stuff to the bread it actually tastes good. Overall not a bad meal if you are out in the field, and want something hearty and filling.
Here are the other Youtube channels I watch for MRE Reviews:
gschultz9, gundog4314, and Kiwi Dude.
I hope you enjoyed my review on Menu 8, and see you next Monday which is Menu 3 Chicken with Noodles.
Until next time,
