Army Eats: What Does Your Country Feed Their Soldiers?
THURSDAY 07.31.2014 , POSTED BY SHAWN SALEME
Around the world there are millions of soldiers, and all of them need to eat. Some are currently in a conflict, others are in training and some are just waiting. When in the field, the standard meal is an MRE, or “Meal, Ready-to-Eat.” Typically, these ready made meals come with a small instant heat pack to warm the contents of the foods provided.
Redditor itsrattlesnake created a photo series of the MREs from a number of countries and each one has its own unique taste. The French have their pate, the Italians have their biscotti, and the Estonians have their liver sausage. Check out the contents of each of these 11 countries arranged below, and be glad you don’t have to be in the field.
Contents: Cassoulet with duck confit, Deer pâté, creole-style pork, crème chocolate pudding, coffee, flavored drink powder, muesli, caramel candy.
