Old School or Modern Desserts?

Postby Simon2002mre » Thu Aug 17, 2017 10:50 pm

Which do you find better tasting, and what holds up longer. I've heard oatmeal bars are just amazing, and at some point I would like to review the deserts. But yea, what do you find more appealing?
Have a good one!
-PS

If you have any old desserts lying around, that you wouldn't mind selling, I would like to buy some. :D
Oatmeal bars, brownie bars, charms, etc.

Sorry, I need all the sugar. The Brits have the sweetist deserts. What the hell is a chocolate pudding with choc. sauce? Somebody do a Utube review on just the chocolate puddin/cake. Boil i n bag, just like entree.

Dehydrated fruit, cereal bars, chocolate covered oatmeal cookie.. think I gotta go with the old school. :lol: :lol:

Doesn't mean the modern ones are bad either. Really a big fan of Lemon Poppy-seed Pound cake.

They never told ya, the Lemon-Poppy pound cake makes you come up hot, on drug-piss-test. For opiates.

I'd go old school like Elevatorfan73 mentions. Those FD fruits are on point - and if no pinholes they last forever.

Hey Dave, you would have to be eating a ton of those lemon poppy seed pound cakes to fail a drug test - but then again those might be some potent poppy seeds and it only takes one to get ya. 8)

This took me a few minutes to think about, but I think I like the deserts from the brown bag MREs the best. Specifically, I really enjoyed the fruitcake and pineapple cakes. Of course, it's hard to go wrong with freeze dried fruit and the chocolate covered cookie. When I was a kid, M&Ms, Skittles and Charms were always a treat. They still are!

In terms of longevity, I've eaten just about every desert from the 1980s here in the mid 2010s and I never got sick. The only desert item I can think of that didn't hold up was a Munch bar from a 1997 US MRE.

I just did a Sikh/Hindu review on YouTube and it had the chocolate pudding in chocolate sauce. It was amazing warmed up.

I have no sweet tooth. I enjoy sweets on the rare occasion I eat them, but I don't crave them at all. So the modern super-sweet items seldom get eaten. I really liked the few times I've had dehydrated fruit and compressed cereal bars from the old days, probably because they aren't very sweet. Of the modern items, the lemon-poppy seed cake is my favorite.

I've honestly only ever had the marble pound cake, but all the old school ones sound so good! I really wanna try the chocolate covered cookie; everyone says it's amazing and I love stuff like that.
