Tabasco Mini Bottles - Used to Be in MRE's

Tabasco is great for adding a little flavor to your least favorite MRE (Highly sought after in the field), some wild edible's or maybe some wild game that might not be your favorite. It's a great addition to your camping gear, novelty gift or emergency survival kit.

These are the same size hot sauce that are in the MRE's, Meals Ready to Eat. They are also great for Bug Out Bags or just your fanny pack or backpack or even your pocket to add to any meal.

  • In an effort that will save taxpayers $700,000 a year, the folks from the Defense Department Combat Feeding Program are swapping out the bottles for small, silver pouches made from material tough enough to – as one expert said – “withstand the aggressive nature” of the sauce. Officials wouldn’t say what materials were used to make the durable pouches, but they did say that previous attempts to replace the bottles were unsuccessful because the materials didn’t hold up against the beloved hot sauce.
  • If all goes as planned, the bottles, which each hold one-eighth of an ounce of Tabasco and have been a staple in MREs since 1988, will be history soon.
  • These were purchased from the manufacturer, NOT recycled from old kits or supplies
