Who’s hungry for a whole chicken in a can then?

April 30th, 2009 38 Comments By Andy Dawson

It’s almost lunchtime here at Bitterwallet HQ and today, we’ve each got one of these… a tin of Sweet Sue’s Canned Whole Chicken.

There isn’t a single part of the experience that isn’t utterly to die for. The way it slides out of the can as though it’s being born, the jelly that it comes daubed in and the thought that Sweet Sue personally stuffed the bloody thing into the can in the first place.

Mmmmmm… whole chicken in a can…..

    Do they actually grow the chicken in a can in a sort of banzai kiten kind of way, and the juices are it’s own bodily fluids. I presume as they put the lid on, this cuts the poor little fuckers head off?

  2. I actually feel physically sick just looking at image 2… wrong on so many levels!

  3. I think it’s got something to do with lasers. Pretty sure Sweet Sue does animal corspe-shrinking lasers too.

  4. it’s just wrong on so many levels

    I would let that chicken slide out, I would then proceed to part said chicken, I would then personally stuff it with manfat by humping the shit out of it. Only THEN would I actually eat it.

    Throw it on the barbie, it will cook fine, might not look like a chicken but it will taste similar

  18. Loving the expression on the kid’s face as the chicken slides out of the can!

    I almost barfed. This has got to be the sickest thing I’ve seen. Maybe it’s a good tool to use when I go on a diet.

    It’s just a chicken in it’s own congealed juices…. you guts are stupid.

  23. That makes me want to vomit… so did you EAT it?

    Is it just me or does anyone else look at image 2 and expect it to start dancing cabaret style?

    It looks like a British politician in a can , gutless , slimeball, chicken hearted , bald , absolutly tasteless. canned as well.

    The label also shows in true politicial coverage something qiute different to the actual mess your left with.

    YUK…. only for the consumption of political and food numpties

    I have eaten canned whole chicken many times, and it makes great chicken and dumplings, or chicken and needles. The juice makes the gravy delicious. Try it and see. The same brand was sold in grocery stores in the mid west in the 1950′s and 1960′s, the time of my childhood.
