Candwich: Sandwich in a can goes on sale


The Candwich, which has a shelf life of a year, has just gone on sale in the US and online, selling for £7 for a four-pack or £44 for 24.

Twelve flavours are planned, including US-style peanut butter and grape jelly, BBQ chicken and pepperoni pizza.

The peanut butter version requires diners to spread sachets of the filling on to the bread but the rest have the fillings baked inside, like a pasty.

Creator Mark Kirkland, from Markonefoods, said: ‘My original idea was to stack cookies in a soft drink can to sell in soft drink vending machines.

'I started looking for a technology for shelf stable sandwiches, which I wanted because it was a healthy and convenient meal.’

The Candwich’s long shelf life is achieved by controlling water, pH and oxygen levels in the packaging.

This will catch on, just like the microwaveable omelette.

This solves a real problem. I cannot count the number of times that I have fancied a sandwich, made 400 then realised probably 2 would have done. Such a waste... :lol:

Providing they taste basically nice, they will catch on.

They will be cheaper than shop bought 'real' sandwiches and moe convenient for the lazy amongst us that can't be bothered to make a sandwich at home.
