5 of 5 Can't believe how good they are September 22, 2023
Reviewer: Robert from Fort Wayne, IN  
These MREs are delicious. Probably the best MREs in the world IMO. Got my shipping very fast, within 2 days. Ordered on Monday noon, received on Wednesday morning. Couldn't be happier with the service and quality of the product.

5 of 5 Great Memories June 22, 2021
Reviewer: Rufus T. Firefly from SC, United States  
The last time I had one of these, was almost 40 years ago, while on a joint training mission with the French Parachute Infantry Marines. The U.S. MRE was brand new to us then, recently replacing our C Rations. Those initial MRE's were not very pleasing; so we jumped at the chance at these Frenchy meals. They were awesome, truly enjoyable, complete with little bottles of wine or cognac. You won't get the libations here, but if you can afford $60 for one box of this, three meals in one box; I'd go for it. If they were comparable in price to our MRE's, I'd buy three or four cases.....Au revoir mes amis
