My son tries an MRE!

Posted by El DiPablo | 6:00 AM | ,

In this episode of my son Braydon's YouTube show, "The Adventures of Brizzle Fo' Shizzle", Brayden decides to try an MRE (Meal Ready to Eat). I have quite a few MRE's on hand for emergency situations, and my son decided to try the Chicken with Noodles (Menu 18) pack. It came with a pack of wheat snack bread, peanut butter, jam, some drink mix powder and of course, the Chicken with Noodles! He actually loved it!

He ate some of it in the morning at home, then the rest while hiking on The Grand Mesa. We explored a trail called Scotland Trail.

This isn't his first MRE. Last year, after my girlfriend's brother gave me an epic ton of MRE's, Brayden had a Ratatouille MRE and hated it. I sort of expected the same this time, but was happy to see that he actually liked it! As you can see in the above video, his sister Kayla really liked it too!

MRE's are pretty good to have on hand in an emergency situation. Natural disasters can strike at any time, and it's good to have some storable food handy when the grocery stores are closed. If you want to get some for your own emergency survival stash, you can get them by clicking here.

Have you had MRE's? What's your favorite? Let us know in the comments!

As I mentioned yesterday, my son Brayden (aka Brizzle) has his own YouTube Channel!

In this episode, Brizzle goes on a hiking excursion with his Cub Scout troop. We ended up hiking to the lower waterfall in Dominguez Canyon near Grand Junction, Colorado! If you live near Grand Junction, you can get here by going to the Bridgeport trailhead!
