Hardtack is similar in taste to salty sawdust, depending on your recipe. I think John Wayne used to keep them in his vest pocket mixed up with his coins. Always had to look down before taking the first bite.

Well, when I am hunkered down in my basement before leaving at dawn for the Zombie Patrol, a piece of hardtack soaked in reconsitituted powdered milk and covered with honey will hit the spot.

Just saying, they tend to come out a bit tougher than they go in...

The internet is a wonderful thing.

I gonna store most of it, but I'm gonna take a couple of the pieces to the cigar shop to show Joe. He's been bragging about the bulletproof vest he made out of ceramic tile. Yeah, no kidding. Don't think it will work? Check out youtube --several videos of ordinary flooring ceramic tile stopping rifle bullets.
How about a bulletproof vest made of hardtack? Not much difference between hardtack and ceramic...
