Weekend WTF: Bread… In A Can?

by Erika Nicole Kendall

We started out with chicken… in a can. Then we went to sandwiches… in cans. And really, I thought we were done with the canned craziness.

I guess not.

You can thank Sibyl for this tragedy:

So… a little digging presented the following:

I… well… um… goodnight, y’all. I need a nap after looking at this.

This is actually a variation of an english food called “spotted dick”, it is also sold in a can.
Once My mom made banana breads in mason jars, weirdest thing ever, but tasty and when it was sealed it stayed good for months.

Being canned at home is one thing…. but buying bread in a can? That’s something else entirely.

No one said processed foods weren’t “tasty.” We DEFINITELY said they’re creepy and [often] unhealthy. Regardless of the details… this is hellacreepy. LOL

thats just nasty…I took some for your awhile ago i’m
going to send it to you.

Being that I shop the perimeter of the store unless I’m
getting baking ingredients or seasonings, I would have never seen
this. I’ve heard of baking bread in a can but never purchasing
bread in a can. Disgusting . . .

Gross dude, gross. 🙁

At first glance I was thinking of the Pillsbury rolls but
this right here, this is another thing entirely! One huge WTF for

Latonia January 15, 2011 - 2:26 PM

Ok, I have seen it all now. I went to their website to see
what else they offer and pretty much just beans and bread in a
can…..Interesting. Not something I would try, has anyone tried

What is the significance of bread in a can??? Another way
to increase the rate of obesity in America!!!! I wonder how may
preservatives and additives is in that can of bread!!!!!

But Erika … it’s “99% FAT FREE” though! Surely, this
cylindrical, visibly-perspiring baked good, is good for me.

Sonya January 15, 2011 - 10:25 PM

See…smdh…this right here…smdh….this is a
crime…still smdh!!!! Really? Really Dude? I mean REALLY? Yeah i’m
done also, i’m going to bed!! *still smdh*

Well someone is buying it and eating it and I’m glad that
it’s not me. As a chef I find this to be extremely offensive and
disgusting. I’m always shocked at people’s lack of sense when it
comes to food. Even more shocked at grown adults with the palate of
a two year old. A child didn’t make this a grown person did and I
don’t have to taste it to know for a fact it is nasty. Yea I’m a
food snob and proud of it because if I wasn’t I might not think
something like this was so bad. The minute bread is removed from
the oven and I mean the minute it starts to go stale so this I can
only imagine.

The B&M, the acronym, says it all…. more like bowel movement in a can.. ick. The same company that produces this brand also makes Cream of Wheat, Emeril’s and Ortega brand products, as well as Accent (100% pure MSG) seasoning. Mmmmmm. Actually surprised at the Emeril LaGasse one though since he’s a chef.. just… surprised. I guess real food takes second place when money talks.

I took a pic of the “Spotted Dick” with my cell phone a few months ago when I saw it in the grocery store. I thought it was an odd product and found the name hilarious. I still don’t know what’s in it, and I don’t wanna know either o_O

Erika January 18, 2011 - 1:27 PM

See…. and I try to keep everyone well-behaved on here… ROFL! LMAO!

Lasciel January 18, 2011 - 2:12 PM

Oh gross…is it supposed to be bread dough of some kind or is that made to eat out of the can? o_0 I can’t imagine how anyone could stomach it if that’s ready-to-eat.

Considering most bread doesn’t have much fat anyway 99% fat-free isn’t a real seller.

JoAnna January 18, 2011 - 7:56 PM

I found a photo and site for “Spotted Dick”. It’s a British sponge cake studded with raisins and suet, baked in a can and served with cream.


So I’m thinking that the stuff above was supposed to be like a canned bread pudding… minus the hard whisky sauce.

Eva January 19, 2011 - 12:34 PM


When I was a child everybody had plenty of canned foods because of the fear of “the bomb.” But I never remember seeing canned bread. Yuk.

Lauren January 24, 2011 - 6:35 PM

Lol! I saw this in the store for the first time on a vacation to South Carolina. It was so bizarre and revolting that I had to take a picture with my phone and share the news!

Honey January 25, 2011 - 12:36 PM

Believe it or not I actually ate this years ago when in college. The brown bread, a can of baked beans and hot dogs was dinner! On a good week (money wise) we might have a salad too. I didn’t know this was still being sold.

Okay, okay.. I am from New England, so I know of Boston and New England Brown Bread; It’s something from ‘back in the day’. I don’t know the whole history of it, but they are quick breads which are steamed instead of dry-baked. New England Brown Bread was made from stale bread, like a bread pudding of sorts.

I’ve had it, it appears strange to see it at the market – I’m used to having it home made by someone’s Grandmother. 🙂

All jokes aside, there’s an episode of Spongebob where Squidward discovers canned bread at this grocery store. I never in my life thought I would see such a thing for real.
