Bridgford Ready to Eat Sandwiches - Review

I am a bit of a food snob when camping.  I am not afraid to throw a couple extra pounds on my pack to ensure that I eat well in the woods.  When I first saw the Ready to Eat Sandwiches from Bridgford Foods I was a bit skeptical.  The possibility of these things tasting like cat food wrapped in play-doh was a real concern.  What I found was that they are not just tolerable, they are really tasty.   

I took a few different flavors, the Italian Style, Pepperoni Stick and BBQ Chicken, and threw them over the campfire for a few minutes.   I grabbed the Italian Style sandwich, which was now golden brown and steaming hot.  My first bite was nothing short of shocking. This was less sandwich and more calzone, a fluffy crust-like shell held in a sausage, pepperoni and sauce mixture that was packed with flavor.  There was nothing bland or boring about this and having toasted it over the open fire infused it with a little of the smokey flavor that makes back-country cooking so special.  

We tried nearly every flavor available and not a single one was disappointing.  The fan favorites were the Italian Style and the Pepperoni Stick.  It didn't matter what time of day it was, when someone got a little hungry around camp and was feeling too lazy to actually "make" a meal, we'd tear open one of these little packages and drop it over the fire.

Originally created for the US military these sandwiches deliver a shelf life longer than most of us would ever consider reasonable.  They promise that these will taste as good THREE YEARS from now as they do today.  Yeah, 3 years! But trust me when I tell  you, they are never going to survive that long, they are too tasty to sit on a shelf for 1,095 days...

MSRP: $14.99 for a 4-pack
