M.R.E's aren't "Meals Rarely Edible" Anymore...

in fact, they are often quite tasty.

We all grabbed forks and sampled. The pasta was mushy, but the sauce was not unpleasant. The rice on the thai chicken was crunchy — in a good way — but could have benefited from a way of heating it, as the hot chicken on top didn’t melt the gluey clumps quite enough. Everything else tasted more or less like their civilian counterparts.
