#MREReviewMonday Menu 8 Marinara Sauce with Meatballs:


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.

MRE Review Monday Menu 16 Pork Rib


This time I did a review on Menu 16 Pork Rib for my MRE review Mondays. And it has:Pork Rib, Potato cheddar soup, Ranger bar
Cheese spread, Wheat snack bread (2),Reese’s Pieces candies,Orange flavored carbo drink,BBQ Sauce, Lemon Tea, Salt, Chewing Gum, Toilet Tissue, Towelette, Spoon,Flameless ration heater, Hot beverage bag. After heating it up and trying the soup it tasted pretty good like it came out of a can. The actual entree pork rib when I added barbecue sauce tasted like a tv dinner one. It wasn’t too bad. I loved the caramel apple bar since it tasted good. The wheat snack bread isn’t bad too since it doesn’t taste bad when you add something to it never eat it plain. Overall it was a good MRE. Good for something when it’s a cold day, and you want something hot to eat. That’s it for today. And I did a video review of it too and here is the link: https://youtu.be/C3v29zNp4NA

Until next monday,

Update: Some of the updated versions have cool mints with caffeine, tortillas, beef snack, apple jelly, and peanut butter instead of the other items.
