Hey, moms and lazy college kids! There's a new way to get fat and diabetes -- the Candwich! This sandwich in a can might actually migrate from the bowels of someone's sick imagination to vending machines and store shelves across the country.
But wait! There's more! This sandwich in a can is also a con.
The New York Times is reporting that Utah investors gave $145 million to an investment manager named Travis L. Wright who, instead of investing in real estate as promised, put the money into Candwich development and other equally untried ideas.Along with sales of canned sandwiches, Pepperoni Pizza Pocket and French Toast in a can were in the works.
But before you go canceling your plans for a canned Christmas, you should know that the Candwich's actual inventor, Mark Kirkland, told the Times he still believes that canned sandwiches will sell and hopes they'll go into production later this year.
