I know what I'd choose.

Give me a minute.  I'll think of something.

As long as they're not all the vegetarian omelet MREs, I'm okay.  If they are, every other choice is preferable.

Those, or the Tuna, Lemon Pepper.

I was going to participate in a Natick Labs study where participants would be split into 2 groups to measure the effect of MREs on digestive health. The first group would eat only MREs for 3 weeks straight, the second control group would eat normal food. I would have to provide stool samples, get my vitals measured and pick up MREs from the lab a couple of times a week.

Maybe you're waiting for the punch line...there isn't one. This was a real study.

Knowing that the Vegetarian Omelet and Tuna, Lemon Pepper were out there, combined with the time I'd have to take off from work made me bail out.

I still have second thoughts about it. I'm one of those weirdos that genuinely enjoys MREs.

I don't think I ever saw the lemon pepper tuna.  On its face, it sounds like it should be decent...but I'll take your word for it.   :D

I ate MRE's for six months straight and had to get medevaced to Landstuhl, and I took the colonoscopy prep stuff to get cleared to go back to work.  Never Again.

Human has been referred to as long pig before so I guess I'll be having the other other white meat.

I mean, you do get the pound cake and the cheddar cheese spread, but the main entree is a (camouflaged) pouch of StartKist tuna, some tortillas, and a packet of mayo. It's got to be one of the only, if not THE only MRE with no flameless ration heater.

It's the MRE equivalent of raiding the kitchen cabinet because you forgot to pay for hot lunch, and it's your turn to pack a lunch box for your kid before the school bus goes by.
