* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3'', there are three foods that will never go rotten (other food makes Snake prone to randomly throwing up at the worst possible time if it goes rotten): [=CalorieMates=] (tm), which are delicious, Instant Noodles, which are delicious ''and'' a delicacy, having not really made it out of Japan in 1964, and Russian Army Rations, which are absolutely disgusting, though if you feed him enough of them, he'll develop a taste for them.

It's also fairly realistic when you consider the prologue takes place over the course of just one day, and the main mission takes place over the course of four days. Their indestructibility is more in a meta sense - you can go a decade before resuming a saved game, and these items will still be fine, while waiting just one week before resuming a saved game will cause your wild-caught foods to spoil.

* [[http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/century-old-fruitcake-found-perfectly-preserved-in-abandoned-antarctic-hut/ar-AApU1xq A perfectly preserved fruitcake]] was discovered at the Cape Adare camp in Antarctica from an expidition that ended in 1911. The cake itself was perfectly preserved and is still edible, even though the tin that contained it was decayed and rotting away.

*** It is also meant to parody Tolkien's elven Lembas "bread". Lembas can take away a man's hunger with one or two mouthfuls. You usually just need to ''look'' at Dwarf bread to not be hungry anymore.

* Ship's biscuits or hardtack, a very durable cracker/biscuit, has a few samples in museums that are a century and a half old. Some say the "hardtack made 140 years ago 'tastes just as good' now as it did back then." This is not an impressive claim; however, it may be as close to {{Defictionalization}} as dwarf bread will get. There was one incident which some people made some hardtack according to the old recipes and fired it from a cannon. It went over a hill and through the windshield of a parked car. The hardtack was undamaged (The people performing the experiment paid to replace the windshield).

* In 1908 the Arctic expedition of Baron Toll left a food cache in the permafrost of Novaya Zemlya island, consisting mostly of the canned foods that was in Russian Army standard issue rations. In 2008, another expedition opened that cache and tested some of the cans -- both chemically... and directly. The permafrost had done its job so well (hey, it's -40C below there!) that the food remained perfectly edible for a full hundred years. Or at least as edible as it had ever been.

They can be stored without refrigeration for up to two years, and requires no cooking or preparation.

* The sailors and Marines of ''Literature/TheLostFleet'' (by the same author, writing as Jack Campbell) frequently have to subsist on ration bars left behind on mothballed enemy facilities in [[DyingTown worlds bypassed by the]] [[PortalNetwork hyperspace gate network]]. The best that can be said about them is that they make fewer sailors complain about short rations. Their still being edible despite being WayPastTheExpirationDate -by ''decades'' in many cases- is justified by their usually being stored in hard vacuum. A possible example also exists in the utterly revolting Danaka Yoruk bars, which nobody on either side will eat if they have an alternative (They apparently taste better than stale Syndic rations, but that's their only known virtue). Geary is amazed that they're still making the things, given that they were reviled back when he was put into cryo a century previous, and Desjani counters that they stopped making them a century ago, but the Alliance is still trying to get rid of the ones they already made.
