what are you talking about MRE's are the shit, you can heat them in the field, they come with a desert. and some other good stuff, you just add water. plus they pack around 2500 calories a piece If I ever got into serious BC skiing I would always have two or three in my pack.
The one I ate I opened the ham and juice shot everywhere, and it was sticky... Then the rest of the meal was meant to be eaten cold except the hot chocolate. Maybe some are better than others, but I'd much prefer a dehydrated meal from like... REI.

freeze dried foods are the shit. so delicious when youre climbing, backpacking, or just plain hungry. I'll pay $4-$5+ at REI (good ol dividend) for a solid freeze dried meal. Calories to price and weight isn't exactly fantastic, but its still delicious.
MREs are... interesting. Somewhat ok of a price for a "meal" but they only pack like 1200 calories, not 2000 plus. So really, freeze dried>MRE
