No, alas, there's no "-mite" involved. It's just canned veggies. Kind of succotash (lima beans & corn) (emphasis on the "suck") with diced carrot and sliced green beans, blanched/boiled to flavorlessness and canned. I guess if you're expecting a nuclear holocaust, it'd be okay to take down into the shelter. It also pops up as a key ingredient in what we New Englanders call a "casserole" or what Mid-Westerners call <shudder, ack> "hot dish" ("Madge, pass me some more of that peanut butter, tuna, and VegAll hot dish....Erm, where's the ketchup?").
