Battle Butties, The Sandwich That’s Fresh Two Years After You Buy It

The military has had a tradition of feeding personnel long-lasting, freeze-dried meals, but soldiers would always ask for the one thing they’d rather be eating: a simple fresh sandwich.
Scientists found two problems while trying to create a non-perishable sandwich. Bread goes stale, and the filling makes the bread soggy. Both problems may have been solved with the invention of “Battle Butties” a new, long-lasting sandwich that can sit for an astounding two years before going stale.
The creators say their ultimate goal is to create an immortal peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but in the meantime, soldiers have been generally positive about the fillings already on offer.
As once soldier put it, “They’re the best two-year-old sandwiches I’ve ever eaten.” We guess that’s as a good a review as they’re going to get.
Ya know, maybe a two year old PB&J would hit the spot. I reckon it would all depend on how hungry you were. I'd give it a try!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Kinda cool, but that's alright.
