I remember trying MRE's back in the '80's (I think) when they were first being tried out on the Marines. I liked 'em, particularly the thick crackers. I know they have WAY more varieties these days. But has anyone tried MRE's from other countries? I hear the French have decent rats. But I'm looking for reviews of any and all modern or not so modern military rations that would be carried my an individual soldier. Only things that have been consumed by the poster. I must reiterate that I'm a fan of both hardtack AND jerky!
