It has been TOO LONG since I shared this, and since there is still time to get me a holiday gift this season, I wanted to give you this option:
The Cheeseburger In A Can!
I love this so much!
Sold by a German outdoor supply company, this amazing blend of science and nature allows you to take a cheeseburger out for a hike, or an overnight camping trip!
Now of course, as funny as the can looks, you DO have to bite into it at some point – and you will get this:
There was a pretty funny review on The Onion’s website – including some good quotes about what the “Cheeseburger In A Can” tastes like…for example:
• “Oh, auuugh. It’s awful. Have these people ever had hamburger before?”
• “Boy, that taste really stays in your mouth, doesn’t it?”
• “That was so bad.”
• “I think it’s more the soggy bun than the meat.”
• “No, it really is the meat that’s the problem. Oh God.”
• “It’s like the Salisbury steak in a cheap TV dinner.”
• “It tastes like Spam. Spam, but chewy. The texture’s about the same.”
• “I cannot swallow this. It will not go down.”
• “It’s not quite meat, is it? It looks like freaky airline food.”
• “It tastes like beef-flavored something. Beef-flavored matter.”
• “It’s a really dense meat-like puck.”
• “When I first tasted it, it didn’t bother me, but it festered.” “Really? I gagged the second it hit my tongue.”
What else is there to say? Well, there may be THIS!
