Question about MRE’s

Personally, I don’t know the answer to this question but maybe you do.

From Aggie (WornOut) Mississippi Preppers Network

I have a few cases of Military MREs stored for the last three years and they don’t have an expiration date on them. I have heard stories of people eating MREs from WWII lol, but do these expire? How long can you keep them?

I would appreciate this, whenever you get around to it if you can.

Aggie, I’m thinking the shelf life on most MRE’s is 10 years, but you can go much longer. The problem is, most of the food will be very stale, hard, and taste like cardboard. I’m sure you can get some nutritional value for decades, but I’d rather rotate out my stock and keep it fresh.
Here’s what I would do, take your MRE’s and have some meals with them, take them out on a hunting trip or a camping trip and use them up, but at the same time replace them with new stock….Store what you eat and eat what you store.

I’m not an expert on MRE’s, so let’s see what some of the readers have to say.
