This may gross the living hell out of viewers, be sure to not eat any food while watching...think happy thoughts as well. I still cna't believe an airline allowed this to happen...and only $400 taken off the $1600 flight? I'd demand an entire free flight at least.
Consider what kind of food was available aboard ships before refrigeration was invented. Maggots and weevils were present more often than not, once you got into the third or fourth month away from land. Compared to that, MRE's (or even K-rations) are paradise.
This could go a very long way down the logistics chain.
The entire batch would contain maggots in them, whether they be dead or alive. A friend of mine found a couple of them in a Snickers bar a while back, wrote the company and they filed a recall. I know for a fact, b/c I was there when she bit into it.
However, they're an excellent source of protein!.. if you're Bear Grylls, that is.
