The canned bacon looks better than the typical field rations to me. Trust me, when you are hungry and have no other options, you'll eat it. Put it this way: MREs have a pita-like bread in them. The shelf life for an MRE is something like 10 years.
One of the meals that has the bread in them is sort of a salsibury steak. What you do is get another piece of bread from another meal, and use the bag of cheeze whiz and make yourself a cheese burger. Man, I'm glad I got out of the military.
oh shit! i noticed that too! except, the bacon background pic doesn't really do the bacon justice. i saw it on myspace and it took me a minute to realise that it was bacon. it doesn't really look like bacon. at first i thought it was a close-up of Seven's happy time bits, but i didn't see any of my Lee press-on nails lodged anywhere. and then i saw the advertisement for the new baconator and i put 2 and 2 together. though, if you ask me, a strip of Seven's beef snail is more tasty than a strip of bacon, and it's twice as salty.
