This is a very good treat with a nice flavor. Just a smidge on the dry side but delicious never the less and still rates a five. Very handy to keep on hand for emergencies and have in the backpack on a hike or on the commute. Serves one but my wife and I can easily split a slice and have just enough to satisfy the craving for something lemony and sweet.

I was skeptical but ordered due to the reviews on this item. Wasn't disappointed at all. These are quite good. Will definitely be ordering more. Great for the price, and high calorie count will be needed when times are tough.

Dry cake

I ordered the Lemon-Poppy seed cake based on the glowing reviews. I find it very, very dry. Perhaps I just got a bad batch. The flavor is good, but it is too dry to eat without dipping in a glass of milk. Am glad I ordered just a few before stocking up.

Go with what you know

Go with what you know....I am always leery about ordering anything on-line. I like to see it, touch it; try it ... so when ordering something for the first time I went with a product I am familiar with. I was extremely happy with my purchase! The MRE's were fresh! They were produced the very end of 2009 and the first few months of 2010. This would make the first inspection date the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013 and properly stored will last up to ten years. Very fresh products and tasted great!!! Also, best price I have found on similar products on other sites. Thanks Emergency Essentials, I will be placing another order soon!

Surprise Surprise

Great taste and moist. Great surprise from a MRE package. I had some skeptical friends at a black powder shoot give it a try and watched jaws drop at their surprise at the taste. I plan on ordering more.

Will not be disappointed.

I ordered one to try and was amazed. It was delicious. I will be ordering more to add to my camping/evacuation supplies. I have kids who are picky eaters and they loved it also. It was wonderful warmed with a cold glass of milk. You can't go wrong with this one.

Good enough for company!

These were so delicious. My children and I L-O-V-E-D them! While they're great just by themselves, I can picture them served to company with some reconstituted berries and sour cream on top. They're THAT good!

Absolutely Perfect. Hard to believe it will last for years.

now I have to share

Lemon poppy seed cakes are very good. They had been in my cellar for 4 years took some out to try, Shared with people who have been making fun of my stash of food. Now I need to order more, For them and myself. Thanks for the great tasting lemon poppy seed cakes.

Perfect and *not* oily

This tastes better than the Starbucks pound cakes I buy every so often. Just sweet enough, but not too overpowering, the pound cake even has the right amount of moisture. It is not dry or crumbly, nor is it too oily. 40g of carbs, 14g Fat, and 300 calories of fat, a very energizing snack for emergency or camping out. Very tasty!

better than good

the texture and taste is well worth the cost of adding this desert to your food storage reserve
