Weekend WTF: Chicken In A Can?

by Erika Nicole Kendall

I… I give up. I’m not even going to try… I just.. in advance, I give up.

I’m not entirely sure if I can even say anything about this or how one… I don’t know… I’m just gonna roll that beautiful chicken footage, I guess. Hope you’re not eating.

Now, Tracy was gracious enough to share with us her experience of purchasing – and cooking – this incredible, incredible product… that has easily – easily – ruined my appetite this morning.

You’ve got to read her post on it, though… it’s amazing. There are incredible quotes like “I initially wanted to pull out the chicken and reserve the broth in the can, but the bones were too wiggly, so I had to pour it out.” and “Realized I did not in fact want to keep [the goo] and tossed it down the garbage disposal. I did taste it (the broth part, not the fat globs and mystery bits) with my finger and it was very weak like somebody had just dunked a chicken in some water.

That is… epic.

I can’t say for sure whether or not this product is still being sold, but it doesn’t matter. Thanks to the Internet… the lore of Chicken in a Can will live on.

Probably not as long as the chicken inside, though. Just sayin’.

Thanks to Sakyie for ruining my appetite! Got something else that belongs on Weekend WTF? Send it to wtf@blackgirlsguidetoweightloss.com!

I just threw up a little…Why on earth would someone earth that mess? That is just trifling.

When a fellow tweeter showed it to me, I felt like screaming. This has to be one of the most awful things I’ve seen in a long time, the nerve of them to not even attempt to make it look presentable! I’m going to go cry into my pillow now, this thing makes my skin crawl.

BAnjeeB October 17, 2010 - 8:37 AM

I would just like to go on the record as say…bleh! The pictures, then the “wiggly bones”….*shudders*

Ugh, I was eating, I thought I could take it. Nope, that is disgusting. See, now you probably can get that mess with food stamps…

So i’m wondering if resturants use this? my aunt ordered a roasted Chicken and it looks like this, and tasted very strange like all chemically and stuff. I instantly thought of this.

Marjorie January 8, 2011 - 2:47 PM

Why, just why? It still has “fur” on it! I don’t understand
. . .

Marjorie January 8, 2011 - 2:48 PM

It looks like it stank!

Lisa January 11, 2011 - 10:55 PM

Oh my lawd! That’s nasty. I can’t believe there are ppl who would actually buy that. Doesn’t seem healthy at all! One great thing about it is that if you’re trying to lose weight, you can view that pic when you want to lose your appetite! LOL

Pam Andrews April 9, 2011 - 8:35 PM

That must be some big can!

Lisa May 23, 2011 - 10:08 AM

OMG ewww, ewwww EEEEEWWWW!!!! Why did you show us this? I’m traumatized.

Johnnie July 21, 2011 - 1:23 AM

Wow….that is just…wrong. Ugh.

Lizz September 13, 2011 - 1:12 PM

I am soooo glad to have seen this . . . maybe. My Sister and I just had this conversation about “chicken in a can”. A few years ago a senior keep telling me about this product and how good it was and where to buy it. I just had lunch I need to lay down, feel my lunch . . . and not in a good way either!!
