And Old Bay seasoning can make almost anything edible.

Straying from the topic slightly, during my coillege years, I spent a lot of time in Northern Ontario and ski country out west in the winter, and I got a great piece of advice from a truck driver. Keep food in your glovebox. but NOT candy bars, or granola bars or energy bars. Keep a can of dog food. See, if you're just sitting at a RR crossing waiting for a long train, or you're in a traffic jam, you'll snarfle down a hershey bar or a bag of M&Ms, if you know you've got 'em... but you've gotta be in serious trouble before you will gag down a can of Alpo.
