Eat A Gorilla Sandwich

Gorilla SandwichWhen I saw that this food was called a Gorilla Sandwich, I immediately wanted one. Who wouldn’t want to be a strong monkey?!

There was no need to cut the cucumber into the salad, because I could now stuff the salad into the cucumber, and my all raw sandwich was ready to go. I had a great surf session, and afterwards, my first Gorilla Sandwich tasted awesome.

I had overcome the challenge by accident or inspiration. Sometimes the two are hard to keep apart. However, the solution turned out to be the best possible. I was able to get rid of the pulp, the part of the cucumber that was very high in water content, which was one of the main reasons the other ingredients would spoil so easily.

It is supposed to be available at Whole Foods. I was so excited about this that I went to my Whole Foods that evening and looked for a Gorilla Sandwich for myself. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one.

Have any of you tried this? I’m tempted to make one for myself!

    second thought: the outside of a cucumber can be pretty bitter. hmmmm, wonder how it tastes? Wonder how long it fills you?

    Hi Laura, I crunched the numbers on the “Gorilla Sandwich” nutritional label, and got this:

    fat 25 grams x 9 calories/gram = 225 fat cals Protein 10 grams x 4 calories/gram = 40 protein cals Carbs 23 grams x 4 calories/gram = 92 carb cals

    Sounds like way too much fat for me, if my calculations are ok. Thanks for the great blog.

    Hey Guys,

    I’m Alex the creator of the Gorilla Sandwich. We are currently talking to Whole Foods to have them make it fresh in their Deli department instead of having it in the pre packed raw food section. So be patient. We’ll get it back out there. Regarding the fats. Those are all good fats from vegetables and nuts. They are good for you.
