Culinary WTF: Canned Whole Chicken!!


cannedchicken No, you aren’t looking at a scene out of the movie Poltergeist or Alien.  You’re basically observing’s experiment with Sweet Sue’s Canned Whole Chicken.  At $50 a can, this definitely wasn’t a cheap study. 

Essentially, the author of the posting removed the bird from the canister (ectoplasm and all) and then prepared it using the recipe provided on the label. And, this was her end result:


Yes, it's disgusting, unappetizing and perhaps even nightmare inducing. In fact, if you visit the site, she even has more detailed photos which can help you re-taste your last meal.

But, the question is: Who the F*** would spend $50 + shipping for this hot mess?!  At what point did the makers say, “Hey, this demographic would LOVE gelatinous poultry oozing out of a vacuum sealed container!!”

STUDY: Most People Can’t Taste Difference Between Dog Food and Pâté


The next time your host says “Here’s your pâté, YOU BITCH!!!”, be very, very careful.

According to a recent study, most people can't differentiate between dog food and the French delicacy.

In the report titled "Can People Distinguish Pâté from Dog Food?" the researchers concluded that, well, they can't.

The experiment involved running (1) Newman's Own organic Canned Turkey & Chicken Formula for Puppies/Active Dogs, (2) duck liver mousse, (3) pork liver pâté, (4) liverwurst, and (5) spam separately through a food processor.  The resulting five meat purees were then ladled into five different bowls and garnished with parsley.

In the end, the human volunteers in this culinary experiment didn't exactly prefer the dog food, but they couldn't identify it either. "Only 3 of 18 subjects correctly identified sample C as the dog food," the paper says. “Although human beings do not enjoy eating dog food, they are also not able to distinguish its flavor profile from other meat-based products that are intended for human consumption."
