Candwich: Great For Hurricanes And Zombie Attacks
The Candwich: Because we're sick of canned tuna.
Here's a great new food for those of you worrying how you're going to get fresh bread to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches after the world ends by apocalypse, terrorist attack, or zombie takeover.
Mark One Foods in Salt Lake City, Utah, has come up with the Candwich,
a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a can.
Just pop the top and
you'll have a soft, chemical-laden peanut butter and grape jelly
sandwich -- a perfect alternative to Army-issued K-rations and powdered
Plus, every can has a bonus prize -- a piece of individually
wrapped Laffy Taffy.
The Candwich is packed in a 24-ounce, gas-flushed pop-top can, which
gives it a shelf life of at least one year. Inside, you'll find a packet of peanut butter, a packet of grape jelly, and a "hot dog sized bun made from a
special military developed formulation that allows it to stay sweet,
soft, and fresh for over a year," according to the company's website. That means that little Timmy can have
his favorite meal for at least a year while riding out nuclear fallout
in the family bomb shelter.
So far there's only one flavor available, but plans are in the works to
introduce barbecue chicken and peanut butter and strawberry jelly
If you want to add some candwiches to your 2012 hurricane (or zombie
survival) kit, they're available online. Buy a four-pack for $10 (plus
$7 shipping) or large families can get two dozen for $54 (plus $10
