Sopacko Reduced Sodium meals. Government contracted meals for disaster relief. Do not contain coffee or drink mixes, just the entree, heater, bread and spread, and utensils. As a backup for when you can't get or forgot to bring lunch they will work great, or to throw in a pack for hikes.

Honest thoughts, meals are kinda bland, you can tell they are reduced sodium. But, they are still decent. Most of us keep salt or seasoning/hot sauce with us anyway, so that would not be an issue.

Pricewise, they are decently priced, overall deal seems to be pretty decent. If you have the funds, may be worth picking up.

If anyone gets them and wants further info once they arrive, like manufacture date, let me know.

I ordered two 7 packs. What I received was marked low sodium MRE's on each meal. Since I was just ordering because it is a good deal, I have not opened any of them. These are indeed low calorie MRE's without a drink option but will work great as camping or emergency meals on the go. Thanks for the tip Lilburner!

The first mre i opened was dated Nov, 13th 2012. That was a whole lot older then expected. Ate it anyway. The heater did not work but the crackers still hissed and the pop tart haddent discolored much. As stated they are low sodium so yeah add some salt makes em better. The spaghetti and meatballs tasted a little off but its 7 yrs old and eddible so i give it a get what you pay for value.

Took 12 days to come in from order, they did however have a disclaimer that they were short staffed from sickness.

I'd contact them.

They're advertising them as three year shelf life, so being seven years old is problematic.

A non-working heater is a straight up defect.

This deal comes and goes a lot and gets a lot of buzz on prepper sites. The company is always slow to ship, and many people don't care for the low sodium meals, but I've never heard either one of those problems.
