Sure, we loved lunch boxes and music boxes when we were kids. But new musical lunch boxes from a Portugese sandwich company have us scratching our heads.
1000 Tastes Ltd's new product line, "Soundwich," includes seven different sandwiches that each come packed in a music-playing metal box. Each sandwich and its accompanying tune were conceived and picked by a different chef; menu choices include a mango, avocado and tomato sandwich and another of sardine escabeche with eggplant, green pepper and tomato.
At $9.58 (EUR 7.50) a box, they don't cost much more than your average artisanal sandwich. You can hear sample clips for various sandwiches on the line's web site.
