2 x Sugar 20gr, 3 x instant coffee, Ceylon Tea, chewing gum, 3 x napkins/tissues, wet wipes, hand disinfectant gel, compostable wooden spoon, information sheet. 

Heating up the contents - The Latvian MRE has a very large Magtech brand heater that can fit this massive 380 gram main meal pouch. It was very hot and fast (less than 10 mins to heat the meal).  
Beef Goulash with Buckwheat and Mushrooms
  • Huge main providing over 500 calories almost 2x a US MRE main.
  • 30% beef which is unheard of in most MREs.
  • Not soupy, mild beef flavor with hint of tomato.
  • Very balanced with 12% mushrooms a nice touch. 
  • Wooden spoon held up very well, worked great. 

Rye Bread - this is unique to Latvia. Vacuum sealed fresh bread. Rich malty flavor, two thick slices. No spread is provided which was odd. 

  • Protein flour added 
  • Good to -4 F and 95 F
  • A marvel of food science with a 3 year shelf life

Roasted Lentils - also unique to Latvia.

  • One of the few legumes in any MRE in the world  
  • High quality, roasted until split
  • Slightly peppery
  • High fiber (11 gr), high protein (13gr)

Raisin and Cranberries - pretty standard but very flavorful. A nice natural snack in contrast to most other MREs. 

Chocolate Bar - 60% cocoa, standard but good. Not too sweet or bitter. 

PROs: good quality natural homestyle food.
Lots of meat.
Very high quality ingredients, subtle but nice flavors. 
Rugged packaging.
Lots of fiber and protein which is usually missing in MREs. 
Zero chemical taste. 
CONS: no electrolyte drinks. 
No salt, no pepper
No spreads.
Not alot of snacks but don't need as many since the main is huge.
