The MREs in the 90s were awful. Take a main meal (if it was worth a damn) and save it. Everything else was hit or miss. The packets that had the tabasco sauce in it were good. M&Ms were there to remind you that candy existed somewhere in the world, but the ones in your MRE usually tasted like chalk. Tootsie rolls were good but you could use them as a tent stake (if you had the luxury of sleeping in a tent). The chicken and rice was good (#11). The beef stew was edible (#2) with hot sauce. The tuna with noodles was ass and so was the omelet with ham. I still have nightmares about those two. Awful. You sure learned to be creative in mixing some ingredients together to make something different. Good times.
