Super Chef is familiar with Meals Ready to Eat (MREs) those ubiquitous ready meals that bore the brunt of many jokes in the first Gulf War, while other allies’ meals were much sought after by US troops.
Now the secret to at least the MREs’ dessert is out.
Raz spoke to Jeremy Whitsitt of the department, who filled him in on why they needed such an absurdly long recipe:
One thing we like to say is, “What would happen if you cooked a meal, stored it in a stifling hot warehouse, dropped it out of an airplane, dragged it through the mud, left it out with bugs and vermin, and ate it three years later?”
It turns out they taste as bad when freshly made as they do after three years.

Maybe the army needs to encourage citizens to bake real brownies, the kind that take only a few steps to make, for our troops?
Super Chef wonders why the Department of Defense Combat Feeding Directorate has not followed the lead of NASA (see “Emeril Leads Space Race“) and teamed up with a celebrity chef to produce a better brownie?
Isn’t their a publicity-hungry celebrity chef out there eager to make our troops a yummy brownie?
