Shock-A-Lots Menu 22

Post by Aircrashinfo » Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:24 pm

I am doing a review on Menu 22 Chicken and dumplings. It has a component called chocolate covered coffee beans. I never expected it to be a product called Shock-a-lots. Kinda scared to try them.

Has anyone else had any experience with these? I might add that they were manufactured in January of 2008.

Very cool to say the least.

I've had similar products before, and really liked them. I'm not familiar with that brand though. I had no idea that any MREs came with chocolate covered coffee beans, that's awesome!

I have never seen them before either. They were not in good shape. Crushed up and such but man what a kick!

Sweet! I'm a caffeine junkie... my kind of snack! :shock:
I love the smell of 2 stroke oil and MRE coffee in the morning!

My daughter loves them. She would rather have them then candy.
