    Nothing foodwise will top that! I don't understand its existence! It's not exotic or anything (like balut which is gruesome but I get why people eat it). It's just....gross.

    ....anyway i had a look on amazon US$18
    you can buy 2 frozen chickens for that price, not even taking the exchange rate into account and just imangine the shipping to NZ
    still it had some good reviews beleave it or not ! moist and tasty
    i bet the cat would love all that jelly and gross rubber/fatty skin
    im sure I'll wake up tomorrow and i dreamed this thread
    a whole chicken in a can is redicoulss!

    I think I’m going to vomit... The picture of it part way out if the can looks like something from a horror film, while somehow also making a chicken look like a squid.

    Why would anyone buy that when you can spatchcock a fresh, whole chicken and have it cooked within 40 minutes?!

    To answer your question, my list of things that should not exist (in a much less gross vein than your post!) would include automatic doors (complete waste of electricity when 99.9% of people can push open a door perfectly adequately, and society should hopefully include enough considerate people to hold open a door for the remaining 0.1%) and those spray/glitter painted flower arrangements that seem to pop up at Christmas - flowers are naturally beautiful and glitter paint just makes them look gaudy and artificial. Rant over!

    I watched this cooking YouTuber cook the canned chicken once. Her name is Emmy-something, really cute woman. It did not inspire me at all. :sick:

    Yeah, the chicken makes me nauseous. I'm an adventurous eater and tried Balut years ago. It's surprisingly good!

    We carried these Sweet Sue canned chickens in a grocery store where I used to work.
    We also carried pickled pigs feet in a jar,

    Men's ties. Really, like, really? Why? Women don't wear pantyhose much anymore, can't we give men a break with ties.

    They're tight on the neck, get into your lunch. I just don't get it?

    I would be curious to try that. I guess it’s good for the end of the world, when you want one last meal to remember the world as it was.

    What the hell is that??

    If that's all that's left at the end of the world, I'm driving to the nearest city and waiting for the bombs to drop.

    I will admit I've been cooking since I was 10 years old. And I enjoy challenging myself with new flavors and methods. So I'm usually not the right person to ask the question "how hard is it to cook..."

    But Ina Garten has an simple recipe for roast chicken I give people who are just learning to cook. With a video. And it is seriously the easiest recipe ever. If you can handle peeling and chopping some veggies and washing and rubbing butter and salt and pepper on a chicken, you can do it. It's easier than even those meal kits they sell.

    So yeah, I don't get the chicken in a can. I'd even take chicken boiled in plain salted water (which sounds disgusting but is till better) over that. Forget the roasting.

    LMAO @doberman: it totally looks like a spell ingredient for the busy witch on the go.
