Military Pizza Called “Pizza MRE” Has A Three Year Shelf Life
Would you eat pizza that has a 3 year shelf life? Well the military thinks so and they are in the process of delivering a new project called "Pizza MRE" which will give pizza a much longer shelf life. Tax paying dollars spent at their finest!
Soldiers have been asking for pizza, and what ever we can do to help our troops out seems like a good idea. Fox News reports researchers at a U.S. military lab in Massachusetts are have developed a pizza recipe that doesn't require any refrigeration or freezing.
"You can basically take the pizza, leave it on the counter, packaged, for three years and it'd still be edible," said Michelle Richardson, a food scientist at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center. "It pretty much tastes just like a typical pan pizza that you would make at home and take out of the oven or the toaster oven."
Could this pizza possibly taste good? Troops haven't tested it yet, however scientists have and they report it taste great. Maybe it taste better than gas station pizza. This pizza has not been released as of 2/17/2014.
