situation, if you can provide an uplifting smile of encouragement
with a sweet treat.

Your survival life can be sweeter when you boost morale with
sweets too, including hard candies, freeze dried puddings,
brownie mixes, ice cream sandwiches and more. These desserts
are tasty and "not" to die for!
