    I tried it once. I was constipated for over two days. Drink plenty of water.

    I think ages ago I recommended it on this or some other site. I like it a lot, that's why it's bad for prepping!
    I always ate it all:D
    My kids aren't fond of it though.
    It's slightly sweetened and some people use it as sort of a desert with fresh whipped cream etc.

    Thanks for the reminder, I might get a few cans again.

    I have it tons of times, with and without raisins. If you didn't guess, I really enjoy it. I typically just eat it with butter. It makes a great snack before heading out early for the days hunt.

    I've used it, my concern is the price more than anything else. Mostly I pack Bisquick and settle for fry-pan biscuits

    I thought "Bread in a can" referred to beer...

    I thought that stuff was full of fiber. I never ate a whole can in one sitting so it never affected me that way.

    In a SHTF situation, (pun intended) being stopped up might be a good thing! Evacuating your bowels while under fire could leave you vulnerable:eek:

    I know rumor had it the old c rations were designed to stop you up. We still had some type of C rations left when I was in, as well as the first MREs.

    Never know till you try it for yourself. Winco carries it. Just hat on down and buy a can. Its not pricey.

    I keep a couple cans in the pantry for when I get a sweet carb craving. Its heavy, sweet brown bread made with molasses. Its not sandwich bread by any measure, but it has its place. I find it pretty satisfying stuff. Takes me a few days to eat a whole can.

    I view it as desert, with some margarine on it. Just a couple half inch slices at a time.

    Good stuff! We ate it a lot when I was a kid and I still like it! It is dense as a ton of lead so eat a lot of veg as well as drink water with it!

    I had fond memories of this stuff from when I was a kid, it seemed much sweeter and richer, having bought a few cases recently, it's not as good as I remember, but still good enough to eat occasionally. I have never eaten a can in one sitting, I'm not sure that's possible, usually I'll have it either as a breakfast (warmed up with a pad of butter), or as a dessert after dinner. I just open the top of the can, and cut a few slices about 1/2" thick and eat 'em, wrapping the top of the rest of the can with foil.

    Hmm good stuff right there.

    Fond memories of hunting trips back in the early 60's when the old man would break out just about when you seemed to need it most, best mind reader I ever knew!

    Fred Meyer carries it locally (they sell it with the canned beans). It's good stuff. We rarely eat it, mostly because we forget it's out there. But it's a nice change of pace from time to time. And no constipation issues for us :)

    When I was a kid in the Boy Scouts we used to take this stuff with us on hikes; hard to crush bread in a can in your backpack.
