Yup.  Had the "pleasure" of being fed that a few times.  Most recently in US J from CDG-PHL.
Decidedly not ro'ey l'achilas kelev. 

Bring your own double wrapped food.

But when you can bring your own food that tastes so much better?

Then I'd go with whatever route is more convenient, assuming, of course, a fully enclosed suite doesn't nudge the decision to OZ.
