These Freeze Dried Orange Poppyseed Pound Cakes are current production and were manufactured in 2024 by a large military defense contractor. There are 8 pound cake slices per can (3.5" long by 3.5" wide). They are between 1/2" 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.
