    A collection of canned stuff. To eat. Well, some people eat it.

    More canned... goods..., including bird's nest soup, canned whole chicken, reindeer paté ("arctic delicacy, made from farm-raised relative of Rudolf") and, of course, canned haggis: here.


    And, as an afterthought: Canned insects!
    Scorpions, crickets, cricket eggs, and of course, BBQ flavoured bamboo worms.

    Inna can.

    I've actually tried beondegi when I went to Korea 3 or 4 years ago. I didn't know what I was eating at the time and when I was told.. well, all hell broke loose*

    *read: I screamed like a little girl and spat it out

    That swedish herring stuff is actually not too bad. I don't remember it smelling that bad though, maybe I didn't keep it around lying in the sun long enough.

    Canned haggis kind of depends on the brand. Some are just like meatloaf, others keep all the interesting bits in one part..which is less..erm..edible. When I lived in England for a while I've seen people eat that jellified eel stuff.....for breakfast...yeeeeaaah.

    I like oysters, mackerel, sardines, etc right outta the can. Also I prefer canned green beans to fresh.

    I've had this before.
    It's only twice as bad as you think it would be.
