Not quite hard tack (I might get around to making some one day)

Slightly tangential, but anyway-

Weet Bix (Aussies know what I'm talking about) now do Weet Bix Go Biscuits, basically just hard (and dry, so very dry) compressed wheat biscuits.

The website says they are delicious (they mostly just taste Dry. Best have a water bottle nearby)

For better or worse I've taken a few on my travels. If nothing else they are probably nutritious and full of energy.

(If you've got nothing else on at the moment, the Weet Bix Challenge is one of our many tests of manhood, along with croc wrestling and dropbear baiting, I'm sure youtube has much to offer)

You say Weet Bix, I say Weetabix.



I'm only guessing these are the same type of thing.  The trend for a "breakfast biscuit" has really taken off here, though I have to say it's one I've avoided so far.  Might give them a look.

That pic makes them look you need four cups of coffee to get them down. Not that I need a reason for multiple cups of coffee...... ::)

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

I've cut back on my coffee (and sugar) intake over the last year or so.  Not a concerted effort mind you, just something I've fallen out of the habit of drinking lots of.  If I have three coffees through the day I'd be surprised.  Not sure I could ever give up my morning cup though. :)

Eating a 153 year old Hardtack is pretty hard core!
Looks like the ones I made look very much like the real thing. :)

Just got around to watching that video.  Hard core indeed. :D  I'll need to make some more of this at some point as I've ether eaten it or given it all away.  Like Gaute I'm happy to see that mine turned out looking very much like the Civil War stuff.

Most bakers would not be very happy with their bisquits looking like they have been in storage for over 140 years.
