I love this stuff! I keep several boxes around at all times. I've even made impromptu "pizzas" with sauce, pepperoni, and cheese in my toaster oven!
They also taste great with peanut butter, and never seen to go bad.
I've seen them sold in cans online, but I've only seen them for sale in boxes like the picture above.
I'm not sure about worms, I suppose in a hot, humid environment that may become a problem...
It's called many names -- sailor boys, Eskimo cookies, hockey pucks and qa-qu-lik-daqs (something "like bread).
In the Arctic it's called "'qaqqulaaq" (Inupiaq for "sailor boy"), on Little Diomede they are sometimes called Diomede Donuts (since people
there "eat them like cops eat donuts"). "Postmodern Eskimo" blogger Patti Oksoktaruk Lillie, from White Mountain, calls it "Native biscotti."
It is, of course, the Sailor Boy Pilot Bread Cracker. And perhaps no other humble saltine has inspired such fervor.

Add a little canned cheese and you're ready to rock and roll.
Canned pilot bread can last 30 years or more in the right storage IE: Dark, 50 degrees
When i was in the army in the 80s our (C rats) came with cans of hard tack crackers from the 60's and they were fresh, although not very tasty
