If you think eating canned spam or maggots was gross, you ain’t seen nothing yet. From savoury meats to delectable desserts, nothing is sacred from the power of the cannery. Yes, the picture above is of a canned WHOLE CHICKEN – although why anyone would prefer this to fresh or frozen chicken is beyond us. Convenience foods has certainly gone out of control. Here are some more examples of canned foods gone mad:

AND THEN THERE ARE DESSERTS…
Who says canned stuff has to be savoury foods? Here are some of the weirdest sweet stuff we’ve seen canned.
Instant Pancake Flavoured Milkshake
Forget the Shake and Bake versions of pancakes, here’s an even easier way to get your pancake fix. Although we’re not sure how ‘pancake-flavoured’ milkshake tastes like without being cold or shaken…
