A Review of APack MREs

image

So, today I just happened to have a little extra time with Bearded Husband. It was a lovely sunny day, around lunchtime, so we decided to sit down to a nice romantic MRE. Really, best husband ever.

This is review is for the APack Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini meal. I have to admit I wasn’t going into this with the highest of expectations, but Bearded Husband was going along with my prepper shenanigans so I decided to roll with it. We opened the package and examined the contents.

  • 1 Creamy Chicken Tetrazzini entree with warmer
  • 1 Spoon for shoveling said entree into gullet
  • 1 Package of crackers
  • 1 Package of peanut butter, presumably to decorate crackers
  • 1 Oatmeal cookie
  • 1 Package of raisins
  • 1 Pack of M&Ms
  • 1 Drink mix (Lemon)
  • Pepper (no salt), and wet wipe

We followed the instructions for heating up the meal pouch. You take the pouch and put it in the green heating bag, and add the little packet of salt water. Then you put it back in the little cardboard box and wait 12 minutes. You can hear it bubbling!

While we waited for it to heat, we tried the other stuff.

The crackers tasted like saltines without the salt. The peanut butter tasted like any other creamy peanut butter out there.

The cookie was dry but actually quite good.

The drink mix tasted an awful lot like Gatorade mix.

The raisins…. oh boy. Not good. There was something definitely wrong there. They had an off flavor, Bearded Husband thought it might be the glycerol preservative. I thought it was a plastic flavor.

Then it was time for the big reveal!

The Chicken Tetrazzini was totally NOT GROSS! It was actually quite tasty. There were bits of chicken, of course. And bits of vegetable (red and green bell pepper). There was a bit of spice to it, and the sauce was surprisingly creamy.

All in all, if the SHTF I would really consider myself fortunate if I had a few of these socked away. It was fast, easy, and filling. I think I’ll get some for camping too! And maybe some for the auto emergency kit…and a few for the bug out bag…
