Oscar Mayer says distribution will be expanded in '97. It would not however discuss packaging specs. Stores can display the pouches in refrigerated meat cases either on a shelf or from hooks as the pouches are punched for peg display. A use-by date is ink-jet coded at the top right of the front panel which provides a colorful serving suggestion. A notch at the side allows the user to neatly tear the pouch horizontally before standing it in the microwave. Product can be seen through a small window on the pouch's back panel and on the bottom gusset. Oscar Mayer touts the home-meal replacement product with the phrase "zero to sandwich in 70 seconds." That's if the product is heated in the microwave oven of course. The 4.5-oz meat-and-sauce combination sells for around $1.50. After heating product may be placed on a bread roll or pita to create a quick sandwich.
