Sopakco MRE Reviews

MRE

In my quest to find the best military mres for sale I have discovered that for hiking, camping, hunting, and long-term food storage both the Sure-Pack Sopakco mre and the Ameriqual APack mres were the most favored ready to eat meals out of all those mentioned on forums and on various review sites I found. These military ready to eat meals are in a class of their own since they come the closest to genuine military grade mres but are sold to the public by Sopacko which is one of the oldest suppliers of mres to the United States armed forces. Below I have listed several of the four and five star reviews that I found. Furthermore, the mres sold by Sopakco do not contain chemicals and perservatives that are used in some other brands to extend the shelf life. This is very important for your health. Enjoy !!!

"I have over the years eaten many MRE's, military and civilian and found these by Sopakco to be the best that I have ever had. The quality and taste of the new Sopakco product is heads and shoulders above any that I have tasted in the past. I am a big guy ( 6'3" and 265 lbs.) and it takes no small amount of fuel to fill my tank, but thse MRE's really did the job and were tasty doing it. The real kicker is that I'm a picky eater and I ate the whole MRE, even stuff that I thought I wouldn't like. I'm buying more as soon as I can. I would buy a pallet of them if I could afford it."

"I know a lot of people with recent military experience, and they all agree that SurePak MRE's are the real thing. I like them. I intend to use them as an emergency food supply, and order them frequently enough so that I can also eat one when I have nothing better. They contain rather a large amount of calories, so an MRE would have to be my only large meal of the day."

"The quality of the Sopacs is excellent. There is plenty of food. Every Sopak MRE comes with a moist side dish like a military MRE. This is a slight plus over the A-packs because it helps to give greater variety to the meals. Besides, if you are in a survival situation you want to be reminded of the "good ole days" through the foods that you eat. I imagine most people have corn, rice, and the like as side dishes most nights... and that's exactly what you get in each Sopac. However no-one in my family was really thrilled with the "Mexican corn" or the "fried rice" sides. I guess we eat too much authentic ethnic cuisine to enjoy either one.

With that said I have purchased a supply of Sopac in case of a "rainy day" and I plan on purchasing more in the near future. I also have a few cases of the other two brands on hand just in case. Remember that during a multi-week disaster situation you will need to eat a variety of foods to avoid "menu fatigue" - you don't want to get so tired of eating the same thing over and over to the point that you just don't want to eat anything. Thus it's a good idea to include multiple types of entrees in your disaster store for variety. You also need to remember that the U.S. government has stated that a person shouldn't eat MREs for more then 20 days at the time. So if you're planning to store more than three weeks worth of food you will want to include some freeze dried foods in addition to MREs. You will also need some multi vitamins as well..."

The last testimonial mentioned the need to avoid food monotony when he suggested also having freeze-dried food for the purpose of avoiding menu fatigue if you are buying mres for the purpose of long-term food storage survival reasons and not just for camping, hunting, or hiking. Among the brands of freeze-dried food (which lasts up to 25 years) this writer found the highest reviews and recommendations given by active users were for the AlpineAire and especially the Mountain House freeze dried food. These brands get four and five star ratings pretty consistently by people who have used these freeze dry food brands. So when buying Sopakco mre ready to eat meals, be sure and also purchase freeze-dried food packets which keep longer than mres and take less space than the mres. You need both for a well rounded survival plan.
