January 29, 2008: Cheeseburger in a can
fredsonic Wednesday Jan 30 03:41 AM
Ahh yes... I remember as a boy in the Scouts being fed a miserable device called a "Westlers" burger. These came in a can withno bread bun. And come to think of it, no meat! The firm had illegal vendors carts in Newcastle. When the Police used to turn up, the operatives used to run away & hide. The only people who ate them were drunk.

I'm always surprised by the things people eat/buy in other countries. I would expect that nowhere in the U.S. could you buy cheeseburgers in a can. Actually it doesn't look too bad, but, like the man said, obviously a promotional photo. No telling what they really look like. It reminds of a phrase my buddy used to describe me the morning after a hard night out. He said I looked like a can of smashed assholes. And that was from a friend...

Probably better than chewing pine cones and sucking a wet mitten.

But you guys have Cheez Whiz for goodness sake. And Easy Cheese. Like normal cheese is too tricky for Americans?

Trekking Mahlzeiten is a subsidiary of Katadyn, who are famous for hiking gear, especially water filtration equipment.

I'll bet White Castle burgers come in a can.
Chocolatl Wednesday Jan 30 09:37 AM
I can't imagine how the lettuce and tomato on this thing would taste/feel. Burgers get gooey after sitting around for more than a few minutes -- and this thing exists for weeks at a time inside a can?

Where's that "Buy it now" button when you really need it?

The real question is: when is somebody going to order one of these things, and post a video on YouTube of themselves eating it?

On the subject of spray on cheese. It recently showed up in one of the supermarkets over here, so my husband bought some. We threw it in the bin after opening it. I can't imagine why you'd eat it.
HungLikeJesus Wednesday Jan 30 07:45 PM
Aliantha Wednesday Jan 30 07:52 PM
yes silly me. I should know that if I want something to taste like cheese I should eat something labled cheese.
lumberjim Wednesday Jan 30 08:21 PM
i'd try one. what the fuck?

Somebody at Something Awful forums actually bought and tried the canned cheezburger. With pics and full review: And the dude ate it!

It doesn't look as bad as I thought it would
xoxoxoBruce Wednesday Jan 30 11:33 PM
It didn't look nearly as bad as I expected.
lumberjim Wednesday Jan 30 11:41 PM
i thought the can farting on his hand when he opened it was rather unappetizing.
spudcon Thursday Jan 31 01:20 AM
I think the Rat King looked more appetizing.
morie Thursday Jan 31 07:41 AM
well has anyone tried it yet? curious about how it tastes

I remember years ago when we were kids my mother gave us canned whole roast chicken and I nearly barfed when this gloopy thing slid out of the tin covered in jelly.
Elspode Thursday Jan 31 10:34 PM
Unless you've been clandestinely fed octopus flavored crackers by one of your kids, you really don't grasp the full import of just how fucked up other nationalities dietary oddities can get.
Aliantha Thursday Jan 31 10:36 PM
We only eat normal stuff in Australia.
Sheldonrs Thursday Jan 31 11:17 PM
I get the feeling that you will spend more time in the can than the burger if you eat it.
lumberjim Friday Feb 1 01:11 AM
and that comes from an authority on having meat in the can.
Flint Friday Feb 1 09:56 AM
ha ha ha ... lumberjim must have been lurking around this thread, waiting for Sheldon to post!

Shawnee123 Friday Feb 1 03:39 PM
I'd take "cheese" (sorry, cheesestuff) in a can over that slimy looking meat in the pics of the guy actually eating one of those things. That looks like botulism just waiting to happen.
bbro Friday Feb 1 04:10 PM
To go with it, how about a pickle in a can

I just cannot reconcile chocolate chip pancake with meat product....that's like eating ice cream sprinkled with bacon bits....the two are not meant to coexist.
Aliantha Tuesday Feb 5 05:51 PM
I totally agree with you Dana. Those yanks are weirdos.
kerosene Tuesday Feb 5 09:09 PM
I agree on the chocolate chip pancake and sausage thing, only because it is probable that the ingredients are not what one would expect.
DanaC Wednesday Feb 6 05:36 PM
If the pancake, chocolate chip and sausage were all made out of the expected ingredients would that be ok? :P
monster Wednesday Feb 6 06:04 PM
you're asking the people who put maple syrup on bacon.

I wondered when someone would remember the black pudding.

Aliantha Wednesday Feb 6 10:27 PM
Hey now, that's good stuff!
Shawnee123 Thursday Feb 7 11:39 AM
Weird. This morning getting ready for work for some reason the song Land Down Under was running through my head. I remembered when it came out we had never heard of vegamite, I thought he was saying "he just smiled and gave me a bit of my sandwich." LOL

Ooooh. I love haggis!
kerosene Thursday Feb 7 01:38 PM
Oh, and anytime you have prepackaged "pancake" I can't imagine many of the ingredients are pronounceable, let alone real ingredients used to make pancakes. Same with sausage...wait...that might not matter much in this case.

"How could you tell?"
Aliantha Sunday Feb 24 05:37 PM
My husband just sent me an email with a picture of the cheeseburger in a can. When I told him I'd already seen it on the cellar, he said, "I should have known that all knowledge springs forth from the cellar.

My favorite breakfast, one pineapple pancake (with the crushed fruit in the batter, not on it) one slice of ham, one egg sunny-side-up.

My uncle was just saying the other day that he's very upset that one of the stores around here recently stopped carrying their "bacon in a can" apparently it was a whole pound of bacon, wrapped up, and stuck into a can...so you didn't have to refrigerate it see....so he stocked his RV with it.

Dazza wants to know when they're going to invent 'fries in a can' to go with the cheeseburger.
