  • “Is putting a sandwich in a can and calling it a “Candwich” the next can’t-miss billion-dollar idea?”

    The New York Times, Money in the Bank? No, Sandwich in a Can, by Kirk Johnson, July 7, 2010

  • I hate to say, but they don't look particularly appetising. I mean, what is that stuff spilling out of the third sandwich? because it sure as hell does not look like chicken, barbequed or not. Give me a good fresh Vegemite sandwich in cling wrap anyday! ;-)

    However, I must admit, it's an interesting concept.

  • Great, now even sandwiches are sold in a can. I'm so glad aluminum resources are infinite.

  • Haha! Ruzuzu added this to Mandles, Candles for Men. Brilliant move, ru!

  • Thanks. Brilliant list, f!

  • Hm. If the makers of the famous canned ham try to market their own version of the Candwich, I wonder whether they'll call it a SPAMmich.

  • SPAM!

  • The third one isn't technically a sandwich, either - rather a stuffed roll.

  • Next thing you know "they" will be putting beer in cans.

  • I'm confused by the pop-top on the can. How do you get the sandwich out through that small hole?

  • If the can were swaddled in bubble wrap, then enclosed in a spiffy carton cylinder, and that cylinder enclosed in a colorful helium-filled mylar balloon, and then thousands of those balloons sent aloft, we humans could roundly cheer a generous rainbow of over-packaged food being scattered to the four winds to feed the hungry wherever and whenever they find themselves in the company of a lost and punctured balloon. That's the ticket, more packaging!
