MRE Entrees / MRE Side Dishes

MRE Entrees by Sopakco, AmeriQual MRE-Star and othersMRE Entrees and Side Dishes

We have marked some of the best ones with "high-and extra-high" ratings only. These are ones that TheEpicenter.com's staff think are real standouts! The ones with these ratings will surprise and excite your taste buds and have been personally rated by our crew! You will also find comments from our family, friends and even customers for other stand-outs.

Some items have no comments at all. It's not that they don't have any comments because they "suck" but rather there is not anything special to say. Take Meat loaf as an example: "It's not as good as my Mother made, but it's not bad -- better if warm." If our customers would like comments for all items listed, please note that in the comments section on your order. If enough customers think we should include comments for all the entrees and sides we offer, we would be happy to expand our rating system. For now, we only have comments for the real stand outs on the list.

Also: People might ask why we have some items marked as "New Item" even though the production date has age on the clock. If an item is marked "New Item," it's new to us or is back in stock after being unavailable for an extended period of time. We strive to have the largest selection of items out there. From time to time one of the factories, other suppliers, or Epicenter itself runs across something that has been lost in a warehouse. All of a sudden, something may be available again that our regular return customers have not been able to get from us for some time.

Some people like the regular style, some people like the Vegetable style better. As the owner of TheEpicenter.com, I have always liked the Vegetable Crackers the most. Although not as salty as the regular crackers, the combination of flaked carrots, onions, red and green bell peppers mixed into the wheat flour give these crackers a fancy flavor like high end boxed party crackers.

New style MRE heaterMRE heater, chemical heaterMRE Flameless Ration Heaters

Chemical MRE heaters! These units will make your MREs piping hot in a few minutes using only a little water! But note that MREs don't require cooking. We are offering MRE heaters as an easy way to have an occasional hot meal during a disaster, and could also be used to heat your own food if packaged right.

The MRE heaters work like this:

Over sized MRE heatersOver-Sized MRE Heaters

We also have a limited supply of clear, over-sized MRE heaters.
Shown on the left is an over-sized heater, and a normal one on the right for comparison.

These over-sized heaters are ideal for Hormel Completes or other similar consumer poly tray packed items. They are also great for heating MRE sandwiches or other large MRE items that normally don't fit inside a heater.

MRE Hot Beverage Bag

For use with MRE Heaters.

Now anyone can make a hot beverage using a standard MRE Heater (sold separately), and the new Hot Beverage Bag developed for the military.

These 4.5" x 9" PET / Poly side weld, 3 mil bags are not your normal zipper lock style bag.
These are made to military specifications and have unique features including resistance to the high temperature MRE heaters develop!
They are designed to heat water for beverages but have many, many other uses!

It gets better, read on!

Anything you can put in the special high temperature bag can also be heated using an MRE heater.
Even if the item (once placed inside the beverage bag) can't fit in the MRE heater, it can be placed ON TOP of an activated heater.

When using the bag for beverages, you just fill the bag with the desired amount of water using the printed ounce marks, put the desired mix in (like instant coffee) seal it, place it inside the heater bag and activate the heater. After six minutes it's ready and really hot! These bags also have measuring marks for 6 oz, 8 oz, and 12 oz. with instructions.

Just read the instructions for the beverage you want to make, and determine how much water to use and fill the bag to the mark.

15 oz can of beans in MRE hot beverage bagHot dogs and buns in MRE hot beverage bagTake these hot examples of cool uses for MRE Hot Beverage Bags!

In addition to using these bags for making hot coffee, hot apple cider, or hot tea:

A whole can (15 oz) of pork and beans fit in these special bags. Although the combined package won't fit inside the MRE heater, it can be placed ON TOP of the MRE heater and lets the product spread across the surface of the heater for maximum heat transfer.

How about things that don't fit inside MRE heaters like Hot Dogs and Buns?

In this example, the buns don't need a lot of heat and don't need to be inside the heater. The Hot Dogs can be inside or on top of the heater, and the buns can be warmed with the excess heat.

We have discovered many other uses for these high temperature bags and are offering an emergency food and beverage heating kit as well. See more details below.

NOTE: The Hot Beverage Bags are intended to hold water for use in MRE beverages like coffee, but have many other uses. Use your imagination!
The Hot Beverage Bags do not produce heat and only provide a way to contain items.

Notes about MRE shelf life:

We tell our customers to figure on a 5-year shelf life for MRE items at room temperature. But from the chart, you can see that the cooler you can keep your MREs, the better. If stored at room temperature (75 degrees on the high end), the taste testing indicates slightly over seven (7) years. If you can keep them cooler (like in a basement or like in our warehouse for example), the shelf life is over ten (10) years. Remember, the shelf life of MREs is based on taste testing, and not that the product goes bad and would be harmful to you."I've had 10-year old spaghetti that was in my own supplies and it was just fine. The noodles were not quite as firm as the fresh MREs, but other than that, just fine". TheEpicenter.com owner.

The manufacturer uses an estimated shelf life figure of "3 to 5 years, plus or minus" for its MRE-type pouched food products. Actual shelf life may vary from this estimate. A key factor effecting actual shelf life is the temperature of the storage environment. Storage at temperatures higher than 85°F may shorten the shelf life of MRE-type food products. On the other hand, lowering the storage temperature will help extend the products' shelf life. This effect is common to most processed food products.

The shelf life figures given in the table for MREs are based on taste test studies conducted by the U.S. Army's NATIC Research Laboratories. This study was conducted by NATIC without participation of the MRE manufacturers. As such, the manufacturer cannot verify the test procedures used by the NATIC labs, nor do they adopt these shelf life figures as a guarantee of any sort. The data is useful, though, as a general indication of the effects of storage temperatures on the shelf life of MRE-type food products.
