Taste test of ready to eat hot pot vs MREs

Imagine a hot meal — made from a single kit, and nothing but cold water. They use it in the military: and now, they are using it in homes in China.

There has been some debate about how good these kits are, and if they taste good. So our Digital Hub team decided to try them to see if convenience really pays off.  And compare the hot pot meals to the MREs (Meal Ready to Eat) that U.S. military members eat when deployed.

CGTN’s Audrey Siek brings us a special Digital Special with taste testing partner Jim Spellman.
