Foundation staff noted that the box was discovered in a poor state, but the dessert not only in appearance, but the smell, was “almost edible”.

It is assumed that the pie was part of the provisions of the Northern party of the expedition, “Terra Nova”. That is, the participants lived on the Cape Adair.
