This item hit the news cycle because the man behind the idea is accused of playing it fast and loose with his investors. But the idea itself is so far out there that it deserves some ridicule, er attention, on its own:

According to the article, there are also plans for canned french toast.

Meals in cans... Wasn't canned beer already invented?

He, he, he. Had a good laugh when I saw this the other day; decided then that this is what bucket lists are for.

I grew up with a lot of the '50s and '60s canned "convenience foods" like the potato sticks in a can, the fried onions you put in the green bean casserole, canned date nut bread, and I love sandwiches, so the Candwich is kind of a dream come true. Just not sure why the blurb on the can calls them "pocket sandwiches."

Oh, and I also loved C-Rations. Pork Loaf, anyone?

this was on the Colbert report, some guy invested $145,000 into "candwiches" and ultimately succeeded? Found this : [markonefoods.com ]

If people will eat spam, potted meat and vienna sausages, anything is possible.

Although this is probably the most disgusting thing I've ever heard of since vegemite which is made from left-over brewers yeast.

Blech.

LOL. And the thing is that the canwich will most likely be a very successful product. Americans go for all this fancy stuff. I used to sell food at the fair and these weird food items were the best sellers, the longer lines:

- fried coca cola, fried lemonade, fried ice cream, coke on a stick, fried oreo cookies, fried Twinkies, fried candy bars.

I can picture the fried oreos, twinkies, and candy bars. I've heard of fried ice cream enough to know it can be done. And coke on a stick I can guess is frozen. But how do you fry coca-cola or lemonade? Next it will be fried lard. Or fried canwiches.

Next thing you know they'll have instant H20 in a can.

<added> Wouldn't you know it? It's already been done [bernardfoods.com]. </added> ;)

They are mainly crowd pulling names, but people go nuts for this food; especially kids. You fry dough soaked in coke. Here is a pic of the fried coke: [digitalheadbutt.files.wordpress.com...]

Add lemonade instead of coke for the fried lemonade one. Replace the cup for a stick and you have the fried coke or lemonade on a stick. People go crazy for these artery cloggers!

fried ice cream


Fried ice cream is a popular dessert at Mexican restaurants. At least the ones around here, anyway.

OK, someone already beat this guy to a real product with a CHEESEBURGER IN A CAN - for real
[oddee.com...]

There's 14 other bizarre canned things on that page, my fave is roasted crickets with eggs.

If you're still not queasy, try this list of canned fare:

Lots of yummy bugs toward the bottom.

This is old technology, we used to eat peas out of a can now we eat frozen peas. I'm putting my money into "Icewiches" (frozen sandwiches) -ideal for that extra fresh lunchtime experience - all you need is a portable freezer unit and mini-microwave for defrosting...

>"Icewiches"
I do that, already. :)
In the morning, remove the frozen slices of bread from the freezer, add fillings, wrap in a container (bag, box, whatever you want), and it keeps fresh 'til lunchitime. :)

As for the can, well, how ludricrous.

A Today Show [today.msnbc.msn.com] producer got to try the PB&J version. Her's didn't come in the actual can because the product still has to undergo "hurdle technology":

...hurdles to prevent the growth of any pathogens or unwanted organisms in the food. By controlling the amount of oxygen, acidity and water inside the packaging and the sandwich itself, pathogens can be stopped in their tracks...

The most disappointing thing is that you have to assemble it yourself. Yeah, I can see myself with a hot dog bun on my lap squeezing pb&j out of plastic packets.
