Some of the strangest things I've seen canned:

- Hot Dogs - I saw this quite often when I lived in England.
- Pâté - It's one thing to see pâté in a refrigerated area, it's another to see it in a can that's on a shelf away from any form of refrigeration.
- Sandwiches - Yep, Peanut Butter and Jelly (Grape or Strawberry) or Barbecue Chicken sandwiches... no, thank you.
- Roadkill - While stopping for gas on the east side of Texas, I spotted something abnormal on the shelves ... canned, local, roadkill meat. Apparently, it was a thing to the locals that sold quickly.
- Bread - Here in the US and in England, I spotted quite a few cans of bread (raisin bread, cinnamon bread, "sandwich loaf bread".. you name it).

I guess it stems from a culture of ours just a good 40-60 years ago. It's just funny that we're still in that state, to a degree.

Boiled Peanuts.

Just because it can be canned doesn't mean one should can it...

Where on Earth is there a supermarket shelf filled with canned mole crickets or roasted scorpions?


Quick search of the internetting suggests Thailand, maybe. Bugs are big in Asia, I guess. The mole crickets on Buzzfeed were 'brown curry' flavored, so that seems to add up.

I think the only time I'd eat a meal from a can that wasn't soup or fruit would be in the middle of an apocalypse.

How has anyone not mentioned the king of canned mystery meats? SPAM :D

Best served cubed, fried and in a bowl of rice. No wait, best served on thick slices, fried, and wrapped in seaweed paper and rice. Nonono, that can't me. It is best served sliced thinly, fried, and atop Trisket crackers. Bahh, who am I kidding, the best way to eat spam is sliced cubed, fried, over a bowl of rice, covering said bowl of rice with a fried egg fried in the grease of SPAM, then cover it all up in brown gravy! SPAM loco mocos are the best. ;o,

And lets not forget panko breaded deep fried S... (someone throws a frying pan at my face, shutting me up.)

My nephew got curious and asked for spam when we were shopping for camping food. At camp we made him eat it because he asked for it

Oh and I got canned stuffed vine leaves and another was canned okra with tomatoes.
Here's one supermarket that considers this to be one of your basic kitchen ingredients in their essential range.

Thanks to you and Google I am now aware that possum comes in canned form.

My world is now slightly weirder.

Not to be confused with a small stuffed toy that has been canned.

Replying to the canned tongue: I bit into pickled cow tongue once, not realizing what it was. It felt like biting my own tongue (very unsettling). I did not continue long enough to get a taste of the meat.

Just to say that I've eaten bear meat....... You know?

But if you read the ingredients, you'll see they've cheated a little bit. It's 87% bear meat, 5% pork..., and 8% ????

They marked it as '92% meat'. The 8% is water, seasonings, and preservatives, coming to a little under 20 grams of Not Meat.

Not sure why they used pork as a filler, but maybe it had to do with the 'fish' thing.
