I got to "enjoy" the first-generation MREs back in the 80s in the Air Force...they weren't great, but from what I heard, they were a great improvement over C rations. In the aftermath of Katrina, we all got boxes of MREs, the next generation. Overall, they are pretty good, with some better than others - the jambalaya was particularly good. The problem is, at least with the ones we got, you couldn't pick and choose - you got a big box with about 20 in them, a variety pack. Perhaps you can order the ones you like. They are more than filling, and very convenient.
