Honey Garlic Chicken 200gr - we were pretty hyped for this new main and honestly it was a let down. 

  • Very watery, more like chicken stew
  • Same cooked chicken as any US/Canada MRE, very chewy
  • Potatoes was an odd choice, did not seem to fit
  • There was a sort of strange artificial honey flavor but it wasn't nice

Hamburger Bun - been an IMP standard for years. We made a PB and J hamburger sand which. Basic but very good. Better PB than USA MREs.


Wunderbar - the best part of this MRE. It's a Butterfinger wrapped in a Baby Ruth. Very very good! Wish they were in the US! 

Held up great in the hot temps.

Apple Slices - Just OK. Basically shelf stable McDonald's apples. 

Small portion, not much flavor. Fruit is always welcome though.

Almonds - Basic but good. Interesting flavor of salt, soy and sugar coating almost like Cracker Jacks. 

Ice Sports Drink - Like blue PowerAde but not as sweet. Good. 

Beverage bag -

  • great design for hot or cold drinks.
  • Very strong and can be reused.
  • Very good gusset lets you set it down to pour. 

New Bag Design -

  • long needed change from paper bag. 
  • Nice zip-loc seal can be resealed. 
  • fully waterproof, very strong unlike the old bag
PROs: Strong and waterproof packaging. 
Well thought out contents. 
Good electrolytes. 
The return of the "Pain" the hamburger bun.
Compressed tablet towel may be the best accessory in any MRE.
Good strong spork.
Best candy in the world. 
CONS: no heater
Matches are not great quality
Strange tasting main
