Prepare-aphernalia: The Candwich!

If you brown bag it to work, you’ve probably run into the sad problem of a soggy, smooshed sandwich. Who wants to eat a pulverized PB&J? A torn tuna? A ravaged roast beef?

Well, now there’s a solution to all your sandwich issues. I give you….the CANDWICH!

The Candwich comes in traditional PB&J (grape or strawberry) and, for the more adventurous, BBQ chicken. They don’t require refrigeration — you just pop the top and eat.

They’re perfect for those — like me — who don’t cook (yeah, I know…sandwiches aren’t cooked, but they do require prep work) and they’re guaranteed not to get smashed up in your lunchbox.

But the best part? They have a long shelf life, making them perfect prepare-aphernalia for your disaster kit!

Like astronaut ice cream and other canned foods, Candwiches look like the sort of thing kids would love. They’re a novelty and might be fun to open in the midst of what might be a scary experience. Plus, I’m 99.9% sure they’d taste better than those icky 4,000 calorie food bars.

If you’re interested in buying a Candwich, visit their website. And if you try one, can you promise to give us a full recap?

Big thanks to Lindsay Segersin for the tip!


  • They were talking about this on the radio this morning! Pretty cool idea (the made all sorts of amazing canned goods during WW2 as well), although it sounds like the investors of the project aren't too happy.

  • This is hilarious. Redcrosstalks is all about disaster dining and "food fridays"- I think I'll post it to ours this week. Although, I don't know if you can get this stuff in Canada 🙂
