Whoa, hold on there. We're still requiring the mothers to come, boil the water, pour into the bags, feed the boys and tuck them into bed. I mean, c'mon! Be reasonable! Do the crime, do the time, mama!
Yeah, I don't find that looking at bright, shiny packages is more effective for shopping than getting advice from folks who've tried the food before. In terms of the "meated" meals and one or two of the vegetarian offerings, I have personally tried many of them and I'm able to describe them in terms understandable to the youths' palate. (I may look old like you folks, but it's a facade!) However, I haven't really tried many of the no-meat options and so I'm putting out feelers for folks that maybe have. Since I've got one or two Scouts who've taken enough autonomy to decide to go Vegetarian, but who have to "sell" their diet to others in their patrol, I'm willing to ask around and get them some advice regarding what might be good options. I've gotten a few nuggets in this thread and another, so thanks folks --keep'em coming.
