MRE Unboxing Videos: Fun but Hard to Stomach

Have you ever heard the old expression that an army travels on its stomach?

Well, I don’t know about you folks, but I can relate. Staying at home during the pandemic has me not only watching more war movies these days but snacking more in the process.

Eating His Way Through History

So I thought I’d try a little something different this week and highlight a YouTube channel run by Steve Thomas, known online as Steve1989MREInfo or Steve1989 for short.

As profiled in GQ a few years back, “Steve Thomas films himself eating his way through military history — peanut butter from the Korean War, beef bouillon from WWII, biscuits from the Civil War — and his surprisingly rabid YouTube viewership can’t get enough.”

See what you think. Myself? I’m sticking to cold day-old pizza!

Speaking of which, watch Steve’s MRE pepperoni pizza review here:

    Wow, this is proof positive that anything can be found on the internet! But I love that Steve1989 is so serious about his MRE reviews. He acts like he's at a 4-star restaurant, which is pretty cute.
