CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE DoP 1983

Post by mreheater72 » Sun Feb 26, 2012 4:10 am

Hi guys,

again a MRE NUT CAKE review, this time I tried a CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE with DoP 1983 :D , see the photos:

The closed CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE pouch with date code 3034, which means February 3, 1983. The outer card board was missing as I achieved it. Due to the "design" of the pouch it seems that is was packed by "Southern Packaging & Storage Co."

View into the opened CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE pouch, the early spring sun covers the cake after nearly 30 years for the first time since packaging :mrgreen:

The CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE out of the pouch, some tears can be seen that surely are the result of rough storage, but the general appearance is absolute ok :D

The CHOCOLATE NUT CAKE broken in two halves, note the large amount of big chocolate drops :D

The taste test: As with all NUT CAKES I opened the last years the flavor was very fine :D , just the right moisture :D , no loss in quality even after nearly 30 years storing :D . Those kinds of cakes were made for eternity…, I guess they are still edible in 2050… :mrgreen: ; I hope I can try that :)

So long mreheater72
