Bizarre Foods!

by Gavan on January 25, 2010

I see a lot of crazy & strange food while surfing the web but these were too brilliant to keep to myself.

I imagine these would make good camping or picnic foods don’t you tink? Here’s how my menu would look (it’s pretty romantic if I do say so myself).

Let’s start with some traditional brown bread

(my granny is turning in her grave right now)

then work our way into a delicious protein-rich appetizer (love the curry flavour!)

Or maybe a little roadkill will get us going.

Next I think I’d fire up the grill to bbq some delicious chicken


or NOT.

Me tinks a burger sounds better.


Burger in a can…I’m going to have to disguise this as best I can and everyone says bacon makes everything better, so…

Of course we’ll need some crisps to go with our burger — I found a lovely array of chips to choose from.

(Actually I think I’ve tried the prawn cocktail crisps and either they were tasty…or I was drunk.)

The flavours below were in a contest to determine which one would be the next introduced to the Walkers line of crisps.
Too bad we didn’t get to taste them here in the States–I’ve always wondered what squirrel tasted like. Would’ve made a great addition to our picnic.


(The Builders Breakfast won the contest. I guess building a tasty gut is all the rage!)

Now if burgers in a can with strange bacon-like stuff on top with a side of crisps isn’t your thing, I’ve got a backup:
HAGGIS. Even Vegetarian Haggis for all of you veg-heads. (Bet you think I’m making this stuff up, don’t you?)

(In case you didn’t know, Haggis is a dish containing sheep’s ‘pluck’ (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal’s stomach for approximately three hours. It somewhat resembles stuffed intestines (pig intestines otherwise known as chitterlings), sausages and savoury puddings of which it is among the largest types.) Wonder what the Vegetarian version is made with….

We need something refreshing to drink don’t we?

Here’s a great snack idea for later when we’ve got the munchies

Now all we need is dessert!

Is that dessert or lunch meat? I can’t tell but I found it at Tesco’s.

This is more like it for dessert


True Spotted Dick isn’t abnormal for those across the pond, but it’s a little off-putting coming a can don’t you agree?

So who’s ready to go camping with me?

DISCLAIMER: I did not make this stuff up, all of it really exists though I’m not sure who’s eating it! If it’s you, do share (not the food, just what it tastes like).

Dear God where did you find this stuff ??? The squeezy bacon thing has me ill, although the chicken in a can is the overall winner, is it covered in fat ? EEUUUUUWWW !

I think it’s some sort of slime or….something. Who knows? Either way I’m not eating it.

So…do they bake it in the can and then put a wrapper around it or stuff some sort of crumbly substance inside until it’s solidified into a “loaf” by pressure?

I must admit, chili&chocolate crisps sounds like a tasty combination. Like chocolate Chex Mix, but with a kick.

I’m not quite sure but I would think they put the dough in the can and bake it. Who knows! The chilli & choc sounds like a Mexican concoction to me.
