Whole Chicken in A Can.

A review:

After following the directions to chill the product, I opened the can, dumped the contents into a large pan, and found myself staring at a quivering mound of congealed goop. Figuring there must be a fowl in there somewhere, I pawed my way through the gelatinous mass and, sure enough, discovered one very sorry-looking chicken about the size of a Cornish hen. I poked at a wing; it fell off. At this point it was hard to imagine anyone following the label’s suggestion to “serve cold just as [the] chicken comes from the can,” but I’d been planning on a hot meal anyway, so I popped the pan into the oven for the specified 15 minutes and then sat down to some of the blandest chicken it has ever been my duty to consume.

But hey… at least it’s cheap:

    Actually, I have used those a few times. You got to break out your Spice Weasel and kick it up a bunch of notches!

    I’d initially missed the “6 count” in the Amazon ad.
    Its slightly cheaper here.

    Might be decent for a hurricane kit but if you have sterno…cause I don’t wanna THINK about eating that cold.

    Thanks for the link, Brick! Making soup from them is pretty easy, it peels right off the bones and the larger cartlidge/tends separate well.

    It ain’t purty! But you can live on it. I have eaten far worse.

    Dear god in heaven, why would you want to?

    BAM!!

    >>It ain’t purty! But you can live on it.

    The reviews indicate that the chicken itself has the approximate flavor of… well, nothing. All things considered, that’s probably *more* than you can realistically hope for out of something that looks that bad and conceptually sounds that awful/offal.
