Apocalypse-Proof Sandwiches

The Tactical Sammich Has a Two-Year Shelf Life

— May 14, 2011 — Lifestyle
Looking to fill the cupboards of your nuclear fallout shelter with something other than Ramen and dried milk? Of course you are, which is why ThinkGeek created the Tactical Sammich, a sandwich with an impressive two-year shelf life.

The Tactical Sammich comes in two flavors, honey BBQ and pepperoni, and is reportedly "delicious." Perhaps the best feature of these sandwiches are that each one comes in at under 300 calories. Just because the world has gone to hell doesn't mean your diet has to, right?

Despite being designed for the apocalypse, I actually wouldn't mind stocking up on a few Tactical Sammiches during these times of relative peace. What can I say, I am a sucker for pepperoni. Check out the video to see the Tactical Sammich in action.
