    can anyone tell me about Datrex MREs?
    I see them selling in Canada, it says Datrex 3600 calorie food bar, case of 20 is 143.10 CDN dollars, so around a hundred american.
    there is no description given for them, what are they made of, what do they taste like? how many do you eat in a day?

    Datrex , Inc is the manufacturer of the survival food. They started as a supllier of marine safety products. The rations come in 2400 and 3600 calorie versions. I think a standard case of the 3600 cal holds 20 packs. 18 bars in a pack.

    The product is USCG approved. They look and eat like a cookie. They taste like a cross between coconut and vanilla. IMHO, the ration is a good grab and go food supply.

    Here is the link to Datrex web site: http://www.datrex.com

    I like coconut. But not all the time.

    Eating the same thing day in and day out can get kind of dull....but hey they weren't really meant for for long term survival situations.
