The silver pack had a bunch of packaged items including, pepperoni pizza with cheese, blueberry cobbler, cheese spread with jalapeños, vegetable crackers, an oatmeal cookie and a chocolate protein drink.

“I don’t like the cookies, they’re really dry,” Guerrero said as he nibbled a piece of the oatmeal cookie before setting it aside.

Guerrero also traded the blueberry cobbler for granola.

“The jalapeño cheese spread is something I treasure when I find,” one user commented.

“Yes! With tortillas,” Guerrero responded.

The MRE packs are largely eaten during missions to ensure the soldiers get enough calories. As for Guerrero’s military duties go, he’s a truck driver.

“I drive trucks, all kinds! Anything that I have to pick up,” he told In The Know. “[I also do] small tasks like sweeping and mopping.”

He added that he plans to continue sharing MRE reviews and other aspects of military life.

“It just popped up in my head, it was legit original,” Guerrero said of how he started posting the reviews. “I was eating a MRE PB&J and a cappuccino and I thought to myself, ‘What the hell, let me show my small fanbase what it’s like to eat breakfast when on a mission.'”

After receiving positive feedback, Guerrero decided to continue posting them. He told In The Know his favorite MRE food is hash browns and his least favorite is elbow macaroni.
