When I was growing up my mom always packed me a sandwich for lunch and luckily it wasn't a soggy sandwich. However, now that I'm older I refuse to pack a sandwich for long trips because I always have copious amounts of soggy elements (vegetables) that ruin the sandwich after it has sat for a while. There's nothing worse than making a delicious sandwich and realizing the bread is completely soggy because it has been sitting in a sandwich bag. Well, here's one very interesting new solution to this problem.

My ideal sandwich has delicious wheat bread, cheese, thinly sliced ham, lettuce, tomato, pickles and often roasted red peppers — if I make that sandwich and don't eat it within an hour, it turns into a soggy unappetizing mess (let's not even get started on adding oil & vinegar). So needless to say, I was really happy when I saw that there's a container made to keep sandwiches from getting soggy.
The Perfect Sandwich Container has several different compartments for each element. Place the wet items (vegetables and meat) in the bottom container, then the bread in the second compartment and close the lid. The hard casing will keep the elements safe and sound while preventing them from getting soggy. If you're worried about actually reconstructing the sandwich when it's time to eat, it's really not a hassle. Place a piece of the bread on top of the wet items in the container and flip it over, then put the second piece of bread on top — easy as can be!
