Freeze Dried Double Chocolate Pound Cake

These are REAL Iced Double Chocolate pound cakes - freeze dried for a 25+ year shelf life. All cans were sealed in an oxygen/moisture free environment.

There are 8 pound cake slices per can (4" long by 3.5" wide). They are between 3/4" and 1" inch thick. We just purchased a large lot of these direct from a Defense Reutilization Office (DRO) Source.

Although actual use is always classified on these kinds of bids, our information is that these are purchased for Executive Branch use, not for our troops in the field.

That usually means these go to underground bunkers for continuity of government use by strategic military leaders, congressional members and sometimes even the White House staff or leadership. 

You can expect to get 25+ years out of them in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil the bread!!! 

Preparation: Either eat right out of the can or rehydrate and use like regular pound cake. To rehydrate the cakes, just wet them in the water, milk, coffee, tea, or any other beverage of choice, and let it sit for 10 minutes in a sealed container (zip lock bags work great). Alternatively, you rehydrate them with steaming. Then use as a delicious dessert. 

Once opened they will last:

  • up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated

  • up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated

  • up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated

These are perfect for storing and using for many years! You can have a great tasting dessert in seconds with no mess and no waste - and it doesn't matter if the power goes out!!! Perfect for camping, boating, traveling, or at the cabin.

What is Military Surplus?

Military surplus refers to the goods and equipment that are no longer needed by the military, typically due to advances in technology or changes in strategic or tactical needs. The surplus is often sold through government auctions or to private buyers for use in other fields, such as recreational activities (like camping) or military reenactments.

Is Military Food Good?

The quality of military food varies depending on a number of factors. Generally speaking, military meals are designed to be nutritious and filling, but not necessarily gourmet. Much of the food served in the military is pre-packaged, shelf-stable items that require little to no preparation.

How long do military Surplus food last?

Shelf life of 10 to 25 years, depending on the type and storage conditions.
