Food Scientists Have Developed Military-Grade Pizza That Lasts For 36 Months

Finally, a justification for all that military spending.

The combat field rations developed for the US military, called MRE’s (Meals, Ready to Eat), are, historically speaking, pretty terrible. A recent article for the New York Times, however, outlines the creation of a new ration - MRE pizza slices.

The item is the latest effort to create food a little more palatable than the typical “mystery meat and no-name casseroles,” described in the article. To qualify as an acceptable MRE food item, the food has to have a shelf life of well over a year and be able to survive a variety of climates and conditions, including inclement weather and high-altitude parachute drops.

Apparently, these new slices fit the bill. They also come in a variety of styles and flavors. Early reviews from civilians and YouTubers have glowingly reviewed it as “not that bad,” and comparing it to high school cafeteria pizza.

The product is now being shipped to military bases around the world, so soldiers will soon be able to enjoy the joys of non-perishable pizzas in no time. We doubt this new menu item will prompt anyone to rush out and enlist, but we couldn’t think of a better way to combat those military-grade munchies right here at home.
