Ready to Eat Sandwiches were originally developed for the United States Military as combat rations for troops on-the-go. The Military required a sandwich with a three year shelf life, that tastes as great on day 1,095 as it does on day 1!

When originally tested by Natick (the division of the U.S. Army, responsible for researching and managing food, clothing, shelters, and support items for soldiers), the product received one of the highest acceptance scores of any new product introduction!

Our Ready to Eat Sandwiches were also tested with the United States Marines during an operation in Fallujah, and are currently incorporated into the US Military "First Strike Ration" MRE.

Bridgford Ready to Eat Sandwiches are produced in our Statesville production facility, under a grant of inspection with the USDA/FSIS. We are also inspected by the USDA/AMS, FDA, NCDA, VETCOM, Silliker and a handful of other agencies.

All of the meat and poultry that we use is purchased from USDA facilities and BSE tested to ensure the highest quality.

Storage of Ready to Eat Sandwiches

All Bridgford shelf stable sandwiches have a 3-year shelf-life if maintained at 80 degrees or less. Sandwiches can be stored at 100 degrees for six months.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is put in the sandwiches to make them stand up to shelf life?

    It's a combination of packaging and processing. In terms of packaging no light breaches the tri-laminated foil pouch and no oxygen is contained with in the package and hence no bacteria formation. In terms of processing sodium is utilized in the preservation of the product however the product contains less than a can of soup.

    Are there any made with gluten-free breads?

Very Good

These are great for backpacking breakfast. I have mine with a hot cup of Starbucks Via coffee followed by a bowl of oatmeal. Great start to the day.

I hadn\'t tried the cinnamon one yet of the Bridgeford foods. Jovi is sitting next to me eating one and I got to try it. Wow!! I am shocked at how good it is. "Survival food" as some people call some of the products we sell isn\'t to be put away and forgotten about. You don\'t want to change your diet in the middle of a stressful situation and make it even worse. Check these out, you\'ll love them.

Ready to Eat Sandwiches

Ok we tried the Italian Style Sandwich, the Flatbread, Bacon Cheddar and the Cinnamon Bun. While they don\'t look too far from the depictions here they were all quite similar in appearance and texture. As a long term item to have on hand that doesn\'t need to be heated to be eaten this could be a unique niche item to have in your car/boat/truck/work pack to chow down on and keep moving. Certainly what the military had in mind when they chose them. You won\'t think they came from the deli counter but not much sealed in mylar does but they fill you up. Take note if you have reactions to MSG or Lactose as some items list them on the contents. For everyday practicality over MRE\'s or Freeze Dried items they get a 5. Appearance/taste is a 4 - but don\'t worry because when you are starving no one is going to care!
