"The XMRE 1300XT Beef is a MRE (Meal Ready to Eat), which is a quick no hassle meal, that contains roughly 1300 calories. XMRE, and other MREs, are completely self contained meals the don't need to be cooked and have everything you need to eat, comes with spoon, and clean up afterwards"

"Featuring ready-to-eat components, XMRE meals utilize current US Military MRE components. While being fully cooked and not requiring water, an optional flameless heater can heat up your meal in 5-10 minutes. What’s also great about XMREs is that they not only sell them by the case and pallet, but individually too." Click to read the full MRE review!

"The last ration heater I tried took a couple of minutes to get warm, but not the heater from XRME. It started smoking almost immediately and was definitely doing a good job. My meal was nice and toasty in no time which if you think about a Bug out scenario could be an advantage." Click to read the full MRE review!
MRE Reviews Menu No.5 Shredded Beef in BBQ Sauce by XMRE 2015 Lot # 5041" It was a very good meal, and I have to say that the new Shredded Beef in BBQ Sauce entree is now one of my favorites. It has a strong BBQ flavor which is a little sweet and smoky. It's not terribly spicy but does have a little kick. Someone looking for a lot of heat might want to add some of their favorite hot sauce, but overall it's an excellent entree. " Review by Gschultz [embed]https://youtu.be/KcQ7ChslX7s[/embed]
XMRE are a commercially available brand of MRE meals that contains many similar items to the military issue ones. They arrive in the familiar khaki bags. Inside, you'll find an entree, a cracker/bread item, another snack item, jam/peanut butter, dessert, drink powder, heater, hot drink bag, and accessory pack with spoon, salt/pepper, wet nap, napkin, sugar, instant coffee, and instant creamer.
The menus vary, and having tried several, they are very consistent in terms of taste. So how do they taste? Well, I would compare them to major-brand canned food. That is to say, they're actually pretty good, especially considering the packaging, shelf-life, and price. If you need to stock these in a 72-hour emergency kit, you'll be very pleased. But please note: You will need water to prepare and enjoy these MRE meals. In the first place, the beverage powder needs to be mixed with at least 12 ounces of water. And the mixing bag will not stand on its own while you drink it, so have a cup of some kind handy. Similarly, you need a few ounces of water to activate the heater to warm your entree (unless you want to eat it cold). I recommend having at least 24 ounces of water at hand for every meal. Also, I would like to see a better napkin in the accessory pack as the supplied one is mostly useless. It's a small point but when this may be all you have with you, the small things count. I've used these on day hikes and on a few bicycle day-treks. They're relatively light, easy to prepare, and when you're finished, you can stuff all the packing into the main bag and dispose of properly. Again, for a 72-hour kit, these will work great.
