It's real! It's revolting! It's CHEESEBURGER-IN-A-CAN!!
I kid you not. It's made, oddly enough, in Germany. There's a hilarious review (and movies!) here:

Enjoy!

1. avclub.com is one of The Onion's sites, isn't it?
This is guaranteed to be good reading.

Thanks!

2. My favorite reaction:
"Boy, that taste really stays in your mouth, doesn't it?"


It just seems to summarize that entire article so very, very well.

3. That got posted in the C&B group
last week. We need MissHoneyChurch to translate for us. Couldn't tell if he ate the whole thing to be funny or if he liked it.

9. I can't find the post in C&B. But there's a link in redpen's post that has the ingredients
in English. (There seems to be a lot of "wheat our" in that thing.)

Note the dates: SA covered this on Feb 5, and well looky looky looky, AV Club "discovers" it a couple of weeks later.

Sorry about that.

10. How funny!
Look at the difference in the two pictures of the burger at the link!

I've had the frozen White Castle and they're bad enough. I can't imagine why anyone would try to put it in a can!!!

16. I wonder how this compared to the old Army C-Rations...
Perhaps our Resident former military personnell would care to weigh in on this?

17. Those rats varied wildly in taste. Some were actually not horrible,
but of course it depended on your hunger level. Or if you're strange like me and actually LIKe Lima beans.

24. I was never in the service
But my dad thought that C-rats from the surplus store were the greatest thing ever.

Some are not actualy so bad. Others really are.

18. My favorite line...
"Sort of beef-esque, in a way that would only fool someone who never actually eats beef. " :puke:

That doesn't EVEN sound appetizing. I would eat my arm first, I think. :rofl:

19. The same company makes dehydrated red wine
Not sold in the U.S., unfortunately - it would be a fun thing for a backpacking trip. Next time I'm in Europe I plan to hunt some down...

20. Now wait just a cotton-pickin minute. How can they dehydrate wine, and still
have any alcohol content in it? I don't think they can.

I smell a rat. But who knows, maybe they use the rats for the cheeseburgers-in-a-can?

21. I wondered that too, but they claim an alcohol content of ~9%
By the time I'd wrapped my brain around 'cheeseburger-in-a-can' I was ready to believe anything...

26. Indeed. Even if for no other reason than you'll never be humiliated by having to say:
"Yeah, I ate a Cheeseburger-in-a-Can."

Hey, you'll like this: the Little Guy wanted to eat some Corn Dogs tonight. The store was out of "real" ones, so we bought a box of non-meat (I won't use the word "veggie") corn dogs, and he actually like them better than the hog-and-cow-based ones! He ate four of them in fact.

Morning Star Farms ones and they are really good. I bet he'd like their chik'n nuggets, too. They are very good.

28. That's disturbing on SO many levels...
good job.

I'm off up the stairs in a few minutes to see if I can sleep with all this goddamn wind howling around fr the second night in a row.

And as for you, m'dear, it's off to bed with you as well if you know what's good for you. There's art to be made tomorrow, and it's waiting for you.

31. I've seen the cheeseburger-in-a-can in an article before
but the writers of that article weren't brave enough to test it themselves.

They also mentioned another product, I think it was by the same company: Powdered wine. That's right. It looks like kool-aid powder, but it's supposed to be wine. For when you can't carry the bottle with you when you're going camping. :\

CheezBurgerWhiz, if you will.
