30 Canned Foods You Never Knew Existed
i'm not sure i would try anything on that list!!
I wonder why the candwich comes with a candy surprise inside. (Possibly to make up for the bad tasting sandwich.)
The chicken almost made me want to puke, and it didn't get better as I scrolled down...
oh i know. it was disgusting looking uke:
And you just HAD to post this during lunch!
The cheeseburger looks delicious.
not lunch time for me!!
the pizza flavored meat sounds.....interesting
Did you all see number 30? Fish Azzholes (Manhattan Style). WTF is that :laugh:
Oh nasty!! I've heard of the Pork Brains - I work with a printer who sent me a pic of the label a couple years ago. It all looks so gross
I wouldn't eat most of those things even if they weren't canned.
We ate the canned chicken years ago. We were hungry so it wasn't that bad.
Reindeer pate, no - but reindeer meatballs, yes. Taste like spam (the lunchmeat) We had a roommate that was into weird food.
Nothing seems particularly unusual here, certainly whole chicken in a can is quite normal, most of the others are just various meat products. Although the idea of canned cheeseburger or strawberry jam sandwiches sounds a rather....ewww!
I think a lot of what you see and don't see in a can, is down to the country you're in. In the UK you don't see canned donkey meat or camel meat AFAIK, but they're available in a can here. Appears to be a USA article, so I think the idea of canned scorpions is unusual for that country, but not unusual for China.
Pork brains are OK, we boil them in a hotpot style usually with chili beans, coriander, garlic mixed with other meats and vegetables, it's quite spicy. It's like a mala tang dish.
I'd probably try it IF I didn't know what it was.
if it looks funky, i usually wont eat it...and most of those look funky!
Whole chicken in a can? *pukes*
I hope the can of warm is for fishing...
Only (international) can food that I crave for is Fois Gras
Does anyone want to try some Surstromming?
Reminds me of when I was in France. I didn't speak a word of French and was in several restaurants where the menu was entirely in French. I would generally point at the least expensive menu item and eat that. No clue what I was eating half of the time.
I bet some of it was spectacular
I bet those Doomsday Preppers have a bunch of that crap in their hidey holes lol.
When I was in France, I just knew to look for certain words on the menu, like escargot, cheval and grenouille. Had no problem eating them though, I'm not fussy.
Now I know much more Chinese than French, so when I see a Chinese menu I can usually order dishes no problem and know what they are.
I remember looking at a friend saying something like, "Holy crap!! They serve poison here and it's right on the menu!!! Who would order that???"
ROFL...all I have to say is American haha XD How long were you in France?
