A really, incredibly long time. I bought some two or three years ago and the best by date is 2018. If I haven't used them by then, I'll keep them as long as the packages are intact--or I eat them.

these would be a great to have around the house during power outages or snow storms
Or you could just have plenty of extra non-perishable food (which you constantly rotate, so you always have some) and a non-electric can opener.

With all due respect---I'm not sure how these "hot" meals would work as an emergency food for use in a car. Some of them need to have water added to the outer pouch to start the chemical reaction. The following video, however, shows newer "air activated" MREs. It's new to me. Ain't science great?

I always have water in the car. Who doesn't? I also have food-snacks, jumper cables and tools, a first aid kit, a lighter, matches, plastic bags, tissues, wet wipes, and some other stuff and junk like a towel and a space blanket.

ETA soldiers in the desert will appreciate this.
