January 29, 2008: Cheeseburger in a can



Via our old IotD haunt Spluch comes this item... an item most foul. now this is obviously a product photo, and thus barely qualifies for IotD but... uh... it's a cheeseburger in a can.

Now take your eyes off the nice plump ordinary cheeseburger in the front of this image.. and look at the can. And consider what, exactly, might be in there. What it might look like. What it might smell like. How long it can last, and why.

Yes. A new low, of sorts, has been achieved here.



fredsonic  Wednesday Jan 30 03:41 AM

Ahh yes... I remember as a boy in the Scouts being fed a miserable device called a "Westlers" burger. These came in a can withno bread bun. And come to think of it, no meat! The firm had illegal vendors carts in Newcastle. When the Police used to turn up, the operatives used to run away & hide. The only people who ate them were drunk.



Gravdigr  Wednesday Jan 30 05:08 AM

I'm always surprised by the things people eat/buy in other countries. I would expect that nowhere in the U.S. could you buy cheeseburgers in a can. Actually it doesn't look too bad, but, like the man said, obviously a promotional photo. No telling what they really look like. It reminds of a phrase my buddy used to describe me the morning after a hard night out. He said I looked like a can of smashed assholes. And that was from a friend...



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Jan 30 06:40 AM

Probably better than chewing pine cones and sucking a wet mitten.

Cheeseburger in a can is indeed grim (as are Westlers tinned hamburgers, as I can attest).
But you guys have Cheez Whiz for goodness sake. And Easy Cheese. Like normal cheese is too tricky for Americans?


ZenGum  Wednesday Jan 30 09:09 AM

Trekking Mahlzeiten is a subsidiary of Katadyn, who are famous for hiking gear, especially water filtration equipment.

T.M. also make a powdered wine to go with your canned cheeseburger.

Attachment 16664

And a powdered chocolate mousse for dessert.

I expect the cheeseburger would taste like rubber, and I cannot believe that it has lettuce on it - the picture on the can doesn't show this and I can't see how it would survive the canning process.
They have, nevertheless, answered a very important question:


Yez. You can haz cheezeburger. Anywhere.



Spexxvet  Wednesday Jan 30 09:27 AM

I'll bet White Castle burgers come in a can.



Chocolatl  Wednesday Jan 30 09:37 AM

I can't imagine how the lettuce and tomato on this thing would taste/feel. Burgers get gooey after sitting around for more than a few minutes -- and this thing exists for weeks at a time inside a can?

Looking at the can itself, I find the choice of packaging to be amusing. Peaceful, coastal landscape to evoke tasty cheeseburger... as if beef came from the sea.



gmr2048  Wednesday Jan 30 11:48 AM

Where's that "Buy it now" button when you really need it?

Ask any Bovine you happen to see
What's the best burger?
Ground Beef of the Sea


Flint  Wednesday Jan 30 12:01 PM

The real question is: when is somebody going to order one of these things, and post a video on YouTube of themselves eating it?

You could be the first! Imagine the instant fame and celebrity you could achieve! Act now, strike while the iron is hot! Do it now!

I really doubt the lettuce, tomato, pickle, onions are in the can. I bet its a *serving suggestion.

For a second i thought the IotD was Nick Cannon's Special edition of "Drumline." Now thats hilarious. Then again i ask myself the same question when looking at the two...

Why?

I was thinking exactly the same thing. You lot in the US eat some pretty weird stuff yourselves you know.

On the subject of spray on cheese. It recently showed up in one of the supermarkets over here, so my husband bought some. We threw it in the bin after opening it. I can't imagine why you'd eat it.

Your problem was that you were expecting it to taste like cheese. That stuff tastes like artificial nothing.


Aliantha  Wednesday Jan 30 07:52 PM

yes silly me. I should know that if I want something to taste like cheese I should eat something labled cheese.



lumberjim  Wednesday Jan 30 08:21 PM

i'd try one. what the fuck?

Somebody at Something Awful forums actually bought and tried the canned cheezburger. With pics and full review: And the dude ate it!

xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Jan 30 11:33 PM

It didn't look nearly as bad as I expected.



lumberjim  Wednesday Jan 30 11:41 PM

i thought the can farting on his hand when he opened it was rather unappetizing.



spudcon  Thursday Jan 31 01:20 AM

I think the Rat King looked more appetizing.



morie  Thursday Jan 31 07:41 AM

well has anyone tried it yet? curious about how it tastes

What? You never heard of seacows?????


be-bop  Thursday Jan 31 07:25 PM

I remember years ago when we were kids my mother gave us canned whole roast chicken and I nearly barfed when this gloopy thing slid out of the tin covered in jelly.
God knows how old it was but because of the canning process i guess the actual bones of the chicken were soft,I'm just about heaving thinking about it now



Elspode  Thursday Jan 31 10:34 PM

Unless you've been clandestinely fed octopus flavored crackers by one of your kids, you really don't grasp the full import of just how fucked up other nationalities dietary oddities can get.



Aliantha  Thursday Jan 31 10:36 PM

We only eat normal stuff in Australia.



Sheldonrs  Thursday Jan 31 11:17 PM

I get the feeling that you will spend more time in the can than the burger if you eat it.



lumberjim  Friday Feb 1 01:11 AM

and that comes from an authority on having meat in the can.



Flint  Friday Feb 1 09:56 AM

ha ha ha ... lumberjim must have been lurking around this thread, waiting for Sheldon to post!

Oh, I dunno. Some of us just like to lurk...

(Admittedly, 8 posts in 4 years is more "impressive" than 37 in 6.)


Shawnee123  Friday Feb 1 03:39 PM

I'd take "cheese" (sorry, cheesestuff) in a can over that slimy looking meat in the pics of the guy actually eating one of those things. That looks like botulism just waiting to happen.



bbro  Friday Feb 1 04:10 PM

To go with it, how about a pickle in a can

http://www.germanpickles.com/shfgetonedill.html



monster  Friday Feb 1 08:52 PM

Hey, Dana,

You may have to spell out to these merkins that you find that combination a little weird....

(when I try to explain the sweet/savory thing, it doesn't work. Savory means strong-tasting, not non-sweet. Sweet only being for dessert is a WTF type-of-idea here)



classicman  Saturday Feb 2 01:25 AM

you guys amaze me - srsly.



DanaC  Tuesday Feb 5 10:22 AM

I just cannot reconcile chocolate chip pancake with meat product....that's like eating ice cream sprinkled with bacon bits....the two are not meant to coexist.



Aliantha  Tuesday Feb 5 05:51 PM

I totally agree with you Dana. Those yanks are weirdos.

talk about odd food combinations!

Okay, TW, you can come out now. Something about traceable to management? Hmm.

I agree on the chocolate chip pancake and sausage thing, only because it is probable that the ingredients are not what one would expect.

What, there's no pancake involved? Or no chocolate chip?

If the pancake, chocolate chip and sausage were all made out of the expected ingredients would that be ok? :P


monster  Wednesday Feb 6 06:04 PM

you're asking the people who put maple syrup on bacon.

(and bacon bits on ice cream, I'm sure)

It's taken me 5 days to realize it, but a Yorkshirewoman is mocking us for our food??!



Black pudding: blood and offal tied into natural intestine wrappers. The blood makes it black. Have a nice day!



lumberjim  Wednesday Feb 6 09:30 PM

some times a black pudding is just a black pudding.




and sometimes, it's a big black cock.



Aliantha  Wednesday Feb 6 10:06 PM

I wondered when someone would remember the black pudding.



zippyt  Wednesday Feb 6 10:24 PM

And vegamite :BARF:



Aliantha  Wednesday Feb 6 10:27 PM

Hey now, that's good stuff!



Shawnee123  Thursday Feb 7 11:39 AM

Weird. This morning getting ready for work for some reason the song Land Down Under was running through my head. I remembered when it came out we had never heard of vegamite, I thought he was saying "he just smiled and gave me a bit of my sandwich." LOL

I've tried it. Um...yuck!



DanaC  Thursday Feb 7 12:22 PM

Nowt wrong with a good bit o'black pud with yer Full English breakfast!

You are frightening me.

Oh, and anytime you have prepackaged "pancake" I can't imagine many of the ingredients are pronounceable, let alone real ingredients used to make pancakes. Same with sausage...wait...that might not matter much in this case.

Aliantha  Sunday Feb 24 05:37 PM

My husband just sent me an email with a picture of the cheeseburger in a can. When I told him I'd already seen it on the cellar, he said, "I should have known that all knowledge springs forth from the cellar.
xoxoxoxoxoxoxox"



beauregaardhooligan  Monday Feb 25 12:59 PM

My favorite breakfast, one pineapple pancake (with the crushed fruit in the batter, not on it) one slice of ham, one egg sunny-side-up.
Stack it up and cover with maple syrup. Simply awesome. Since moving to the south I want to try it with a slice of country ham.
For lunch, try a peanut butter sandwich made with toasted pumpernickle and a thick slice of onion.

My uncle was just saying the other day that he's very upset that one of the stores around here recently stopped carrying their "bacon in a can" apparently it was a whole pound of bacon, wrapped up, and stuck into a can...so you didn't have to refrigerate it see....so he stocked his RV with it.
