Documentarian, YouTuber and food adventurer “Steven1989” has “a passion for the ration” – so much so that he has produced a series of videos showing the unboxing and consumption of decades old military MREs (or Meal, Ready-to-Eat).
He describes the packaging, texture, smells and taste of the edible antiques and, needless to say, the initial reaction is typically sheer revulsion. However, since MREs are notoriously disgusting, chances are they tasted just as nasty when they were new.
Check out some examples in the videos below.
