I clicked what I thought was the slideshow but it was about some university guy resigning for plagiarism so here's a canned chicken that's probably funnier anyway.

I've actually had canned haggis and believe it or not, it wasn't bad.

"Spam ("spiced ham") is actually mainly made of pork, with some ham meat added "

Used to love the B&M brown bread as a kid, though that was prolly 50 years ago.

And Spam? Don't care for it, but it's way too popular to be weird.

I have a sealed can of whale meat identical to the one above sitting on a bookshelf in my home office - wifey brought it back from Japan 15-ish years ago. I wonder sometimes just how starving (or insane, or both) I'd have to be to actually crack the can and feast on the goo inside.

yeah, a lot of the brown bread recipes you see, even involve cooking in a can. stuff's fine for what it is, very classic with pork'n'beans. don't always see too often the retail B&M much outside new england, tho'

back in the day, my favorite was always turkey SPAM, sliced thing, grilled to crispetty. didn't care for the original, too salty+strong. and, agreed, hardly-weird.

I've seen canned poutine in Canada, but I've been put off by the concept to investigate.  To this day, I'm not sure if it's the whole deal or just brown gravy and cheese nurdles.  The photo on the can makes it look like it was the complete package, but that may be a "Serving Suggestion."

Objecting to the brown bread seems like the reaction of someone who was too scared to try it.

I didn't look at the slideshow, but I have seen some things in the asian market. Oddest off the top of my head is silkworm larvae in a can.

Came for the canned reindeer, leaving satisfied.
/start weak csb
Saw it on the way through Helsinki airport on the way to Holland and vowed to get some on the return trip. Sadly our return flight from Berlin to Helsinki landed 5mins after our Helsinki to Singapore leg was meant to leave, so we had to sprint the length of said airport with all our baggage and somehow made it as they were closing the gate. So no reindeer meat in a can for us lol

Eww. That's disgusting! Rice and macaroni together??? Hard pass.

I've never had commercially canned chicken, but mom used to can it (and other meats) back in the day. It's really farking good! It has the same flavor and texture as if it came out of a crockpot. Fall off the bone tender and juicy.

Maybe this version is more to your liking:

whale meat, cut into bite-size pieces (from 1 medium-sized whale)
5 tons alaskan potatoes
17 gross ostrich eggs
6 (55 gallon) drums chili peppers
1 ton salt (add to taste)
2 truckloads carrots
1 snowshoe rabbit

Mix ingredients (except eggs) in an Olympic size pool filled with non-chlorinated water.
Heat to boiling.
Simmer 2 to 3 weeks, or until tender.
If it appears that the stew may not serve the entire group, add snowshoe rabbit. This requires caution, however, as some people dislike hare in their food.

/ I like this version because it uses only traditional Inuit ingredients, like ostrich and chili peppers
