Candwich: Great For Hurricanes And Zombie Attacks

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

shipping) here.
