Long Life Sandwich

KELLAN

The U.S. Army has announced a big technological advance. It has come up with a sandwich fit for the battlefield. More from Gail Huff of CNN affiliate WCBB.

GAIL HUFF, CORRESPONDENT

The Army’s new pocket sandwich may not look like a miracle, but consider the fact that it’s made of real bread, real pepperoni, and its expiration date is June of 2007.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

Oh, it’s huge. It’s absolutely huge.

HUFF

For seven years, researchers here at Natick Labs have been trying to develop the technology that uses chemical and natural preservatives to lock moisture in place and stop bacteria and mold from growing. Well, finally they found a way to keep a sandwich fresh for up to five years.

GERALD DARSCH

Suspending time indefinitely. That product will be just as safe and wholesome three to five years from now as it was the day it was born.

HUFF

Soldiers, who are used to MREs consisting of freeze-dried meat and vegetables, say this sandwich equals a meal in a five-star restaurant.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

It’s good. It tastes like something you’d buy from Hickory Farms or something. It’s very good.

HUFF

I tried them, barbecue chicken, bacon and cheese, and pepperoni.

HUFF

Um, that’s good.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

Isn’t that good?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

It’s all right.

HUFF

I like that better.

HUFF

I passed them around the Channel 5 newsroom and cafeteria without tasters knowing they were Army rations.

HUFF

Would you buy it?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

No.

HUFF

No. Would you eat it?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

I’m eating it now.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

Well, it’s interesting.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE

Yeah, it needs some sauce or something to dress it up.

HUFF

No, it’s not home cooking, but during combat, it’s perfect. No preparation, no refrigerator needed. You’re no doubt looking at the sandwich of the future.

美国军方宣布了一项重大的技术进步。一种战地三明治问世了。 WCBB的盖尔·哈夫向您报道。

记者盖尔·哈夫

军方的这种新型袖珍三明治看起来也许并没有什么神奇之处,但想想看,这可是真的面包,真的意大利香肠,而且保质期一直到2007年6月。

男被访者

哦,它真够大个的。真够大的。

哈夫

纳迪克物理实验室的研究人员七年来一直在研究一种技术,它能结合化学和天然防腐剂锁住水分并阻止细菌和霉菌生长。现在他们终于能成功地研制出了能够使三明治保鲜五年的方法。
