About Steve1989MREInfo

Few accounts on YouTube delve as deep into specialty food history as Steve Thomas, who runs the channel Steve1989MREiinfo. Steve collects up vintage military MREs, which stands for meal ready to eat, then takes his passion to the next level with a detailed unboxing and, when possible, taste test. If you’ve ever wanted to see someone eat peanut butter from the Korean War, or breakfast from World War 2, Steve has something just for you. Steve astounds his 1M+ subscribers on YouTube with his knowledge on military history and food science, explaining what each component of these often antique packs was used and intended for.
