Be Thankful none of THESE foods are on your Thank Thu, 11/25/04 9:28 AM (permalink)
These products are real! Be happy you won't have to choke them down today!

8. Meeter's Kraut Juice (Stokely USA): Yes, that's sauerkraut juice,
which is even worse than it sounds. The taste and smell can be a bit, well,
harsh, but KJ is reputed by its fans to have certain medicinal benefits (as a
source of vitamin C, cure for intestinal bugs, etc.), which adds up to a
classic case of the cure being worse than the disease.

7. Guycan Corned Mutton with Juices Added (Bedessee Imports): The best thing
about this Uruguayan canned good is the very pouty-looking sheep on the
package label -- he seems to be saying, "Go on, eat me already." The
second-best thing is the presence of both "cooked mutton" and "mutton" in
the ingredients listing, which would seem to have all the mutton bases
covered.

6. Armour Pork Brains in Milk Gravy (Dial Corp.): If you're really looking
to clog up those arteries in a hurry, you'll be pleased to learn that a
single serving of pork brains has 1,170 percent of our recommended daily
cholesterol intake. All the more ingenious, then, that the label on this
product helpfully features a recipe for brains and scrambled eggs.

5. Sweet Sue Canned Whole Chicken (Sweet Sue Kitchens, Inc.): From its size
(think growth-impaired Cornish hen) to its overall appearance (it's stewed
in a quivering mass of aspic goop), this product may change forever your
idea of what constitutes a chicken. Gives new meaning to the old line about
meat "falling off the bone."

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I saw the kraut juice yesterday at Kroger's. I thought to myself, "what kind of person goes for that?". OK, so there are more gross foods out there. Who'da thunk?

      I thought this thread was going to be a little different initially.....

      I know that with every year that passes, and that I no longer have to eat Thanksgiving dinner at my Grandmother's house, I am thankful that I will never see gifilte fish on the table with the turkey!

      Thank you, Thank you, Thank You....a hundred times over....

          I don't know about the brand, but I have had canned whole chicken. It really isn't that bad (or that good)

              I can handle the matzoh ball soup -- even maternal Grandma's wimpy, fluffy (the way they're supposed to be) consistency versus paternal Grandma's knife, fork, and jackhammer (the way I likes 'em) consistency. But, I would rather poke my eye with a sharp stick than eat -- or even smell -- gefilte fish ever again.

                Sounds like someone read "Inconspicuous Consumption"!

                  My dear mother had quite a collection of cookbooks. I found one of those old "name brand" ones this summer she had marked some recipes in.
                  One was "Ideal Choo-Choo Wheels with Meat Sauce".

                    You left out the McLivermush sandwich for breakfast in North Carolina.
