Once on a search nd rescue mission a long time ago, my partner and I were tasked with an assignment that involved a cold overnight bivouac.  t We had a relatively normal evening meal, but I a brilliant (I thought) brainstorm and had prepared a concoction of oatmeal flavored with powdered Gatorade.  Just add water and enjoy.  I heated the water and prepped my breakfast before the unbelieving eyes of my companion.  "You are actually going to eat that?" he inquired unbelievingly.  I  was and I did, and the concoction stayed down and I suffered no lasting ill effects.  At least it was hot and we went on to achieve the rescue.

Funny thing, I don't recall him ever teaming with me of any operations after that....

Gatoroatmealade never became a commercial product for some odd reason....
