They are sending me a replacement case and have apologized for the mistake.

I’ll let you know what I get.

old post:

Minimum order is one case of 12meals, 2 each meals repeated twice. Unable to read the entree package without opening each one. Not going to do that. I’ll just take them camping and see what I get.

I did think about just openig them and repackaging them in a zip-lock type container, but decided not to.

This is contained in one meal package. The weights for the entrees, along with the nutrition info, is on the heater sleeve and a separate sheet of light cardboard. One entree on the sleeve and one on a smaller rectangle of light carboard.

1) entree: Asian style beef strips with vegetables, 8 oz, 227 g.

2) side dish: black beans in a seasonsed sauce, 5 oz, 142g.

3) crackers, 1.45 oz, 41 g

4) Appalesauce cake ttf, 71g

5) strawberry jam, 1 oz, 28 g

6) beverage base powder grape, 1.2 oz, 34g. makes 12 ounces

7) flameless heater with sleeve,

8) Acessory pack: opened and put in a zip lock bag: brown paper knapkin, a spoon, pepper, salt, 2 sugars, and coffee instant type II sprayed. And a CoffeeMate creamer. And one FreshNap moist towlette.

Sorry Steve1989MREinfo on youtube, no Coffee instant type I.

I tried to open it above where the package ‘peelable seal’ was printed, but I was unable to do so and had to use a pocket knife to open it.

The outside of the pouch isn’t labeled. So the only way I can find out what the entree is, is to cut the clear outer plastic bag open. Everything inside is in its own sealed bag and labeled.

Did notice that on one side of the carboard sleeve that goes around the self heater, has the entree contents printed on it. So if thats visible on the outside of the meal pouch, I can find out without opening.

I ate the applesace cake a few days ago. Tasted good. I reached into the box and pulled out another MRE. It turns out to be the same one.

This time the applesauce cake was bland. I gave it to one of the kids.

I heated the Asian beef strips and black beans with the same self heater. The beef was warm, the beans were less warm.

I think I got the water amount wrong, and its not really designed to heat two items.

I have tried the big chocolate chip cookie out of another one. That tasted good.

But the cookies, etc. are shelf stable. No idea what that means as far as contents of the item. They are high in calories. The applesauce cake is 320 calories.

Overall, its easy to use. I hope to do better next time I try it. The entree and side dish are certainly filling.
