Quick Overview

MRE Complete / Case of 12 / Hungry Man

Meals-Ready-to-Eat Big Eater "Hungry Man" MREs Our HIGHEST Calorie MRE we have EVER Offered!


MRE U.S. Military Style Meals with 12 Different Entrees.  AWESOME Savings -- Buy NOW.

I have had many requests for a "Hungry Man" or Tactical, Big Eater sized version of our MREs for those who like, or need, big filling meals. Well, here it is. We went to our suppliers and asked them to put together a super beefy "affordable" MRE meal case for our customers! These MREs are EXCLUSIVE to NITRO-PAK and cannot be found anywhere else.

 The MRE business has been tough for some time. Supplies have been very short.  We work hard  to provide our customers with all FRESH component MREs and meals.   If you are ordering MREs after a disaster, good luck. Supplies ALWAYS VAPORIZE just after a crisis strikes. Remember, when the Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake or Disaster warnings go out (or hits), the time to prepare is over, like trying to buy fire insurance when the house is on fire.

As we have recommended for years, IT'S BETTER TO BE PREPARED WAY TOO EARLY, than just one minute too late. Now is the time to GET PREPARED! Order sufficient for your current and future needs NOW! MREs, which stands for "Meals Ready to Eat", are the latest U.S. Military field rations (meals) that are perfect for short backpacking treks, campers, hunters, and emergency reserves. MREs were developed to be eaten anywhere, anytime.

How long will an MRE store for? MRE military entrees and side dishes will remain nutritionally good for approximately 5 to 6 years when stored at room temperature according to rigid military testing. (Our current stock has a 4+ year shelf life) We suggest storing them in a cool dry place, the same as with all food reserves to maximized their shelf-lives. Storage temperature DOES affect the shelf-life of MREs as well as ALL foods.   Each meal comes packed in a rugged clear bag to protect each meal from the elements and provides convenient meal organization

Other components in each MRE meal will vary for shelf-life like crackers, candy and cookies. We have typically found these items still very good tasting after years of storage though sometimes harder or dryer but still very tasty to eat. Cracker spread will have a shorter shelf-life, around 2 years.

 Everything you need for a complete meal is included.

 MRE Advantages:

 1. Each Entree Meal is Pre-Cooked, Ready-to-Eat

2. Can be Eaten Hot or Cold Straight from the Pouch

3. Long Shelf-Life

4. Complete Meal in One Package

5. Great for Emergency Evacuation 6. No Cooking, Preparation or Water Needed.


 ***These MREs do not come with heater*** A typical complete meal provides approximately 1700 calories compared to most other civilian MREs at 500-1000 calories MRE Box Dimensions: approx. 10"w x 17.5"l x 15"h. Approx. 26 lbs. per case

Customer Reviews

  1. About Chainsaw Review by Paulino J.S.

    This Chainsaw guy has no clue of what to expect from MRE's These are great if he finds himself when SHTF he will die cause there are'ntany gourmet meals in dumpsters,, @Nitropack,, you have a great selection and great products , I see "chainsaw" is not a military guy just a punk with a tuff wanna be name (Posted on 3/21/12)

  2. Hungry Man MRS's Review by Wally55

    WOW, these are great!!! Alot of food and filling to. Well worth the money. Only thing you betterlike the coffee candy, there are bout 25 pieces of coffee candy in each one. I would buy these again and from Nitro-pak. Great service and fast delivery. (Posted on 3/3/12)

  3. Only tried one Review by Chainsaw

    I only tried one of the MRE's. It was edible but not quite as good as I expected. Maybe the next one will be better. (Posted on 12/14/11)

  4. Buy this product Review by Mr.funktastic

    If they weren't currently sold out I would be ordering more today.
    Buy my count 2000 + calories per meal (at least the one I opened, you gotta try one to be sure what you got). Everything tasted fresh and delicious.
    Truly a pleasure to do business with this company. (Posted on 4/27/11)

  5. Kid tested and Kid approved:) Review by H

    These arrived yesterday.
    Good shipping and great condition when arrived. The selections are VERY acceptable and come packaged with extra cookies, snacks, crackers, candy etc. I sampled the grilled beef patty along with the mexican corn, poppy seed pound cake, french toast, cookies and candy. I enlisted my 4 and 6 year old girls to help daddy execute a taste test. Overall my girls were very excited to be involved with unpackaging, heating and reviewing.

    The end result EVERYTHING was a higher quality than i expected, my two girls enjoyed tasting each, giving me their thoughts and approving them as a keeper. These will now replace the ones i have ordered in the past as they did not pass my girls approval.

  6. Literally twice the size of a normal 12 meal MRE case Review by Daniel

    I ordered both a case of 12 MREs and a case of 12 Hungry Man MREs and the Hungry Man MRE case was literally twice the size with the added extras, larger portions, and the addition of the French toast. (Posted on 3/10/11)

  7. Literally twice the size of a normal 12 MRE case Review by Dan G.

    I ordered both a case of 12 MREs and a case of 12 Humgry Man MREs and the box was literally twice the size with the added extras including the breakfast entree. (Posted on 3/10/11)

  8. Great MRE's Review by Jack

    I typically buy the regular MRE cases-

    These have the addition of the breakfast french toast (big), a big brownie, 3 packs of M&M's, and 2 packs of animal cracker type cookies, so in theory would cover almost an entire day's nutrition needs. Add the main entree and the side dish and it is lots of calories.
    Just an FYI- they don't come with heaters which I recommend buying. (Posted on 12/1/10)

  9. This is the good stuff. Review by Kai Moser

    Just ordered another case. These are the Hungry Man MREs that are better than the others with more goodies, snacks, and larger portions. I think this one even includes a free sample french toast, so you've got essentially two good meals per person a day in an emergency situation for just about a week per case.

    I personally figure 4-6 cases for two adults at any given time, plus plenty of canned goods and water, along with a pallet or boatload of baby food, diapers, and gear to cover my little guy makes a decent one month family safety net for us in the case of any sort of interruption to our food and water supply. We'll rotate the canned goods and MREs with fresh stock like we do now as we consume it while camping each year. Diapers are only good while they FIT.... ;)

    With the standard MREs, if you're a bigger guy like me that burns calories while I work then you'll end up eating two per meal. A single meal of these fills me up and doesn't have me staring at a second pouch like the standard rations do.

    Remember, you'll often burn far more calories in emergencies than usual unless you have an extremely physical job and you'll need more calories in colder climates to keep the core temperature up. Like they taught us in Boy Scouts; Be prepared! It brings peach of mind knowing you've got that contingency plan for your family. We all gotta eat... (Posted on 11/19/10)
