Hilarious “Canned Cheeseburger” Review! Wacky Food Reviewed!

“It Tastes Like Beef-Flavored Something. Beef-flavored Matter.”

Talk about a back-handed compliment! Time for one of my favorite reviews of all time!


A Face Only A Reviewer Could Love!

What can make a food reviewer look like this? Well, the title of my story gave it away, but if you’ve never seen one, get a look at this!


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’s like Upton Sinclair nightmare bratwurst.”

• “It tastes like Spam. Spam, but chewy. The texture’s about the same.”

• “It is a little smushy. It’s spongy. I don’t hate it. I think I could eat it if it was hotter, and I could dip it in Ranch dressing.”

• “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! Here is the reviewer trying the “canned cheeseburger” – and boy, is he struggling!

I can watch this over and over…I have to give credit to the company that decided we needed Cheeseburgers anywhere and anytime…and I also have to give credits to the foodie minds who came up with this:

Fried Chicken Bloody Mary

A “Fried Chicken Bloody Mary!”

This is one of the most hilarious things I’ve seen: an entire fried chicken served up in a Bloody Mary…and if you want pizza, well I have you covered as well:

world's wildest bloody mary

I have to give big props to the folks who come up with this stuff…you can see it all here:


Now, we started with a “canned cheeseburger”, so what else do you want in a can?

Hungarian Canned Bacon!

You can never go wrong starting with bacon!

unique bacon product canned bacon

Yes, our good friend bacon is also available in a canned version. And I see why it works so well – just stand it up on end, roll it up and slide it in! Now you have the goodness of bacon whenever you want it – just pop the top and unroll some deliciousness!

I can imagine taking a can of bacon along on my next camping trip to adding it to my cheeseburger in a can – once we have canned mayo, it’s all golden!

Canned Bacon

It’s hard to criticize canned bacon, which seems like a very normal canned food product…unlike THIS:

Hold Your Tongue!

OK, time to edge into wacky territory, and here’s an idea for you: canned sheep tongue!

Many cultures eat tongue, so it is something you will find on more progressive ethnic menus…beef tongue is eaten like bologna, so it’s not THAT unusual:

Well, after looking at ten pounds of sheep’s tongue, maybe it IS UNUSUAL:

Armadillo Meat!

Now, from the wacky to the bizarre, let’s take a look at other mystery meats coming out of a can soon:

bizarre canned food

Yes, you can keep a can of Armadillo at the ready, just in case you have the need – now you have the ability as well!

Creamed Armadillo On The Half Shell!

bizarre food

I can only imagine that if you want some Armadillo, but don’t have the time to “cream” it yourself, this is for you…and speaking of strange “creamed meats in a can”:

Creamed Possum!

bizarre canned food items

I almost wish this was a joke – unless I am missing something, Possum doesn’t come to mind as a meat to eat in any way, especially creamed.

But, just in case this sparks some sort of cooking frenzy in you, I actually found a website that is all for you – here is a possum recipe!


Pork Brain In Milk Gravy – Hold The Cholesterol!

Time now to move onto a “smarter” meal:

bizarre canned food

Yes, if you need a week’s worth of cholesterol in a single day – with “milk gravy” no less, then I guess pork brains are for you! And here is a canned food product that doesn’t beat around the bush!


“Potted Meat Food Product!”

Hey, talk about “truth in advertising!” It’s a potted meat food product – there are many on the market, and this is NO knock against the quality of Libby’s version: it’s a product, much like spam, that uses lesser parts of an animal, and adds seasoning and spices…it’s mostly used on crackers as a sort of pate:

canned meat

Among the ingredients: Mechanically separated chicken, pork skin, partially defatted cooked pork fatty tissue, partially defatted cooked beef fatty tissue, vinegar, less than 2% of: salt, spices, sugar, flavorings, sodium erythorbate and sodium nitrite.

Again, there is no knock against this type of food – it’s just a unique packaging style to be sure! And, to end on a very pointless note, I leave you with this:

spotted dick

Spotted Dick!

That’s right! Look it up! And yes, they sell it in a can!

STILL not enough for you? Then what about this new way to eat sushi!

sushi in a tube

Yes, sushi poppers! Sushi in a tube is close to food in a can, right?

Enjoy all of this unique food goodness – and remember to bite down hard!

  1. I have to speak up in defence of spotted dick. It’s delicious! I like Spam too, makes a tasty sandwich, if you don’t read the ingredients!
    The chicken and pizza Bloody Marys were hilarious. As for the canned cheeseburger, enough said…
    Best wishes, Pete.
