Sopakco's Sure-Pack MRE's normally have a shelf life of 5.5 years when stored at 70F. These boxes look like the type of order Sopakco created to FEMA guidelines in preparation for hurricane season. These should have been prepared to the standard MRE lifespan of 5.5 years at 70F.

The deal looks like a surplus batch about to expire within a year. Pity they did not include a photo of the 'pack date'.

For those who bought them: I'm pretty sure Sopakco still places a pack date on the bottom of the case in the form of a four-digit number such as for example"1123". the "1" represents the year "2011"; the "123" represents the actual day of that year or Julian date. So this hypothetical case this case was packed on the 123rd day of 2011.

As the lifespan of MRE's depends on the temperature they are stored at, they are generally identified by a pack date rather than an expiration date.

Average storage life:
22 months when stored in 100 degrees
55 months when stored in 90 degrees
60 months when stored in 85 degrees
76 months when stored in 80 degrees
88 months when stored in 75 degrees
100 months when stored in 70 degrees
130+ months when stored in 60 degrees

I think two years past the "Best Buy" date.

Less than $3 a meal is a great deal if you're going to consume all 14 this year. Otherwise, I'd pass. I know I'll use on road trips but I think they're meant for camping.
