Question: What does Big Boss and Jack Bauer have in common (besides being played by Kiefer Sutherland)? Answer: They both enjoy CalorieMate.

CalorieMate is a brand of nutritional energy bar and gel foods that is available in flavor like cheese, chocolate or maple. While sold only in Japan, the brand has gained a cult following in the West thanks to its inclusion as a health boost item in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
