MRE Menu Item Review: Cherry Blueberry Cobbler
I had the luxury of eating the Cherry Blueberry Cobbler desert item which I got from a 2007 Spaghetti with Meat Sauce MRE. I have to say it was a delight to eat. It was moist, sweet, and the blueberries tasted surprising fresh. I do admit that the blueberries were a bit tart, but that is how most blue berries taste.
The cobbler or bread portion was moist and sweet and frankly the whole dessert tasted as though it was only a few days old. The biggest difference between Cherry Blueberry Cobbler and the other bread desserts was the moistness of the bread. I love the MRE pound cakes, but they are normally dry and require a liquid during or after eating.
I'd say that the Cherry Blueberry Cobbler has to be the best overall dessert I've tasted to date. If the Spaghetti MRE wasn't good enough, now you get the bonus awesome Cherry Blueberry Cobbler dessert.
The only reason its not a perfect 5 star rating is the sweetness wasn't quite enough and balanced with the tart of the blueberry. More cherry would make it a 5 star dessert. Enjoy it when you can as it only comes in the 2006-2008 Spaghetti w/ Meat Sauce MRE.
