Yes but they don't make it anymore. The USDA contracts with major food brands now also they expanded food stamps so people in rural areas no longer get a box of this stuff every month like we used to when I was a kid. My parents were farmers and in the off seasons this is what we had to eat. 

Quoting luckysevenwow: Is that government issued food?
