 UNCRUSTABLES PATENT: NOT AMUSING

A factual report by Jesse Elias

"People think it is amusing to talk about patents on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but it is a patent that never should have been issued. This is a technology -- if you can call it that -- that has been around in many forms for many years." -- Adam Jaffe, professor of economics at Brandeis University, Mass.. From U.S. Patent 6,004,596 , "Sealed Crustless Sandwich":
Filing date: Dec 8, 1997 Issue date: Dec 21, 1999 We claim: 1. A sealed crustless sandwich, comprising: a first bread layer having a first perimeter surface coplanar to a contact surface; at least one filling of an edible food juxtaposed to said contact surface; a second bread layer juxtaposed to said at least one filling opposite of said first bread layer, wherein said second bread layer includes a second perimeter surface similar to said first perimeter surface; a crimped edge directly between said first perimeter surface and said second perimeter surface for sealing said at least one filling between said first bread layer and said second bread layer; wherein a crust portion of said first bread layer and said second bread layer has been removed.
 

2. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 1, wherein said crimped edge includes a plurality of spaced apart depressions for increasing a bond of said crimped edge. 3. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 2, wherein said crimped edge is a finite distance from said at least one filling for increasing said bond.|

4. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 3, wherein said at least one filling comprises: a first filling; a second filling; a third filling; and wherein said second filling is completely surrounded by said first filling and said third filling for preventing said second filling from engaging said first bread layer and said second bread layer. 5. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 4, wherein said first filling and third filling have sealing characteristics. 6. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 5, wherein: said first filling is juxtaposed to said first bread layer; said third filling is juxtaposed to said second bread layer; and an outer edge of said first filling and said third filling are engaged to one another to form a reservoir for retaining said second filling in between. 7. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 6, wherein said first filling and said third filling are comprised of peanut butter; and said second filling is comprised of a jelly. 8. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 7, wherein said crimped edge is formed into a substantially circular shape. 9. A sealed crustless sandwich, comprising: a first bread layer having a first perimeter surface, a first crust portion and a first contact surface; a first filling juxtaposed to said first contact surface; a second bread layer having a second perimeter surface, a second crust portion and a second contact surface; a second filling juxtaposed to said second contact surface; a third filling; a crimped edge directly between said first and second perimeter surfaces for sealing said first, second, and third fillings between said first and second bread layers; wherein said first and second crust portions have been removed and said third filling is encapsulated by said first and second fillings. 10. The sealed crustless sandwich of claim 9 wherein said first filling and said second filling have sealing characteristics.
