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

30 April 2009

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?

    I actually feel physically sick just looking at image 2... wrong on so many levels!
  • Andy D.
    I think it's got something to do with lasers. Pretty sure Sweet Sue does animal corspe-shrinking lasers too.
  • Lumoruk
    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.

    mmmmm. Chicken. as Homer might say. Almost as good as Spam.
  • sedgwick
    You're all just pussies, I'd eat it no problem. It's just a cooked chicken....in a can.

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

    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.

    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.

    [...] Pizza’s zijn onhandig om mee te nemen als je op de fiets zit. Een doos onder je arm klemmen lukt nog wel, maar daarbij glijden alle ingrediënten naar één kant. Bij 1finecookie hebben ze daarom iets slimmers bedacht: stop de pizza in een pot. Na een eindeloze introductie over Ricky Martin en DMX komen ze eindelijk toe aan het recept: pizzadeeg, tomatensaus, mozzarella-kaas en optionele extra’s zoals basilicum en plakjes salami. Alles wat je hoeft te doen is de pizzaingrediënten in een glazen pot stoppen. Om te voorkomen dat het deeg een zompige massa wordt, moet je één laag deeg bovenop gebruiken of eerst de bodem bakken en pas dan de overige ingrediënten toevoegen. Smaakt vast beter dan kip uit blik. [...]
