Default Best Place to Buy MREs?



Advertise Here

I'm used to eating Mountain House and Alpine Aire (because of camping/hiking..and they are lightweight).

However, I'm looking at trying to find a good price on MREs, when light weight isn't a concern.

Any suggestions?

Evidently I'm not searching good enough on the forums.

Thanks!

been using this site for a while now. best prices i have seen but ALWAYS look at the production date. most are usually within 1-2 year production from when you order but i did get one case that was 6 months away from its 5-6 year life.

I only buy the entree's...it saves a lot of money. You can get more food with the money you save, just buying the main meal, instead of all the extra. Throw in your own dessert, your own condiments from whereever. Vacbag'em or throw'em in a ziplock bag and your good. It saves space too.-WW

Not sure where I read this so please don't credit me with this idea.....

Some folks who buy a lot of MREs would rather not have a paper trail showing that they have lots of food. One of the ways around this is to buy them at gun shows with cash.

Why are most of the local brick and mortar stores not selling the Mountain House in which the air has been vacuumed out? I like those much better as they do not take as much space.

As for ordering online, I can't tell from the list which of the MH items on BePrepared are the fat pouches with air and which are the squeezed down ones. I guess I could go research the item number but that's a PITA.

You can sometimes get great deals at gun shows on them too. I regularly see them here from $45 to $60 a case for military surplus MREs. And you can often negotiate an even lower price for a bulk buy.

I agree. I have a good amount of sides and condiments from MREs, but I mainly focus on the entrees. If I have enough rice/beans/etc then I can use the entrees with those.

I never was issued an MRE while on active duty that was not at least 5 years old.... Some were 15.

Do the meals (Entree) or kits come with the heaters or can you purchase them separately?

The individual entrées don't come with MRE heaters but we do have the Emergency Backup Meals that include a heater along with a main dish, side dish, dessert, drink mix, bread or cracker, peanut butter packet, jam packet, cheese packet, utensils, wet wipe, and hard candy.

We also have the Improved MRE 72-Hour Food & Water Supply that also comes with MRE heaters.

Unfortunately the MRE heaters aren't available to purchase individually on our website.

While in USAF basic training we given a MRE once. My MRE contained a small bag of M&M's which advertised that they were a proud sponsor of the 1984 olympics. This was in 1995. I think they last awhile. Oh, and all of the candy and matches out of the MRE's were confiscated.
