Ready to chow down on a candwich?

Craig MedredAlaska Dispatch

Kodiak radio station KMXT claims its staff receives a lot of generic solicitations from various public relations offices, inventors, media firms and the like, but rarely are they intrigued enough to follow any up with a story. Until this: the Candwich.

That's right. The Candwich. A sandwich, but canned for longevity on the shelf: a Candwich. Sounds disgusting, right? Others beg to differ.

Mark Kirkland, of Utah, got into the canned sandwich game when he started his business Mark One Foods. Currently, Mark One offers two flavors, BBQ Chicken and, of course, Peanut Butter and Jelly, but it has plans to sell a line of over a dozen different kinds. If Kirkland has his way, we will soon see pizza and burrito pockets in a can.

For those who remain skeptical, or weirded out, KMXT says, be cool, "it's not nearly as weird as it sounds." The station did its own research, so they would know. KMXT staff sampled the PB-n-J and the report is in:

The peanut butter and jam comes with a bun a little bigger than a dinner roll and large packets of creamy peanut butter and grape jelly. And the taste? Just like a PB&J should.

At least they didn't say it tastes like chicken (a food which, incedentally, has been available in cans for generations).
