Mmm! Mmm! Ick! A Whole Chicken in a Can!

"Chicken in the Can" products have been around a long time -- how have we been lucky enough not to know about them?

We thought Liquid Cereal was unappetizing, and then we found out about chicken in a can.
Yes, an entire chicken ... shoved into a 50-ounce can from Sweet Sue. Should food look like a scene from "Alien"?

Sweet Sue isn't the only brand that produces a chicken in a can -- a momlogic staffer has evidence of another chicken-in-a-can product ... and a baby in a bear suit.

OMG! That is so DISGUSTING! What is that yellow goo? I can’t believe someone put a WHOLE chicken in a CAN! And that people would actually buy it. So gross!

If you’re getting food from the food bank, I wouldn’t gripe about it. They’re doing you a favorby feeding you.

The food at food banks doesn’t have to be bad. If people with means contributed more to their local food banks they could afford to procure higher-quality food for seniors and other people suffering from these hard economic times.

I dunno…I’ve used the chicken in a can several times when I’m in a rush, and it isn’t bad at all. Makes great chicken and dumplings, and great in one dish meals. I’ll buy it again. No difference than buying tuna in a can!

I hear that chicken in a can goo is good for getting rid of cellulite… and long term house guests. That’s a plus in my book.

OMG, this is hysterical! I can’t stop laughing. You made my Monday.

As a young kid, I liked potted meat sandwiches. It was in a small can & had a smooth creamy consistancy, which should have been a hint right there. When I was older I read “beef tripe” on the ingredient list, ran to the dictionary, and wanted to vomit.
Spam: how the heck do they even make that? Don’t get me started on pickled pig’s feet and canned pork brains. :)

Wow lookit that weird spam post above mine.

Also… that is definitely NOT a ‘bear suit’.

And we wonder why girls in America have 34dd at the age of 11.

How the hell do you cook that?

Vanessa June 2, 2010, 6:03 AM

OMG. No word could do justice to how revolting that ‘chicken’ looks :|

And by the way…that thing is fully cooked?! Gosh!!
