Soldiers will get MRE pizza that stays good for three years

Wikimedia/Neutrality

The Army has created a packaged pizza MRE ration that can sit in 80-degree heat for three years without going bad.

After five years of research and development, the U.S. Army has finally achieved the Holy Grail of meal pouches and created a ready-to-eat pizza that can last three years without going bad.

According to Tech Insider, the US Army's Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center has been working for years to create pizza version of the military’s meals-ready-to-eat (MRE) rations, but it was difficult to develop a piece of pizza that could sit on a shelf for three years in 80-degree temperatures and still be edible when opened. Pizza was a specific goal, though, because it appeals to many soldiers and could hopefully lift morale in a combat zone.

"We've actually had feedback from the warfighter for years," said food technologist Lauren Oleksysk. "Pizza just seems appealing to all."

Oleksysk says the pizza is “a fully assembled and baked piece of pizza in one package.” It can be eaten cold or heated up with a water-activated heater that comes with the MRE. The pizza might not taste quite as good as a fresh slice, but it’s a passable approximation of day-old pizza, or the pizza one might get from a school cafeteria. It has reportedly “received high marks” from soldiers.

The pizza MREs are expected to be on the menu for soldiers sometime in 2017.


The Top 18 from MasterChef US Season Three: Where Are They Now?

The third season of MasterChef US aired on FOX from June through September 2012. Now that several years have passed since that time, fans of the show might be wondering what happened to some of their favorite contestants from the series. They were spotlighted at the time as some of the most “talented home cooks in all of America”, so which of them have continued to pursue their love for food and cooking—and which have gone on to or gone back to jobs in other fields of interest? I thought it would be interesting to look up the Top 18 for the season and provide some updates here for the curious.

Going in order of their elimination from the show…
