Wow, they have it! Canned Bread!

Canned Bread is bread packed conveniently into a can. It is one of Squidward's favorite foods and appears in the episodes "Squidville," "Atlantis SquarePantis," "Super Evil Aquatic Villain Team Up is Go!," the app game SpongeBob Moves In!, and the Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years episode "The Jellyfish Kid."


The can comes in somewhat resembles a soda can and is silver. There is a horizontal red stripe going around the can near the top. On the stripe reads the food's name in all caps and written in white.

Under the stripe is a picture of a loaf of bread. Under this is a yellow burst shape. It reads "Best Thing Since Sliced," spelling out "Best Thing Since Sliced Bread."

The bread is sold at the store Full of Health at Tentacle Acres. Squidward buys it multiple times in the montage of him doing things in the city.
