They laughed at you when you warned them about the zombies. They called you crazy, paranoid—a lunatic. Now, the economy has collapsed. Civil unrest has rocked the cities and suburbs. Food is scarce, and what little can be found is unappetizing. Fortunately, you don't care, because you were smart enough to stock up on CMMG's Tactical Sammich.

In the midst of the post-apocalyptic wasteland, you have a tasty sandwich that stays fresh for up to five years. There's even a flavor choice from the company that gave us Tactical Bacon a few years ago: pepperoni or barbecued beef.

How does it taste? Well, again, it is a Tactical Sammich, designed for consumption when things deserving of the tactical moniker are needed, so taste is not your number one concern. That said, the sandwich is not awful. The bread was surprisingly spongy—not at all stale—and the beef wasn't as dry as one might expect from a vacuum-sealed food product. We'd describe the taste as similar to beef jerky on under-baked focaccia.

Compared to other survival foods we've tried, it's quite good, and it will almost certainly be a nice dose of variety to freeze-dried chicken and Spam or dehydrated lasagna, Spam and Spam dinners. Plus, you'll be the only guy on your block with a Tactical Sammich, which means you'll be the only one left when the zombies come.
