Canned Cheeseburger

Canned Cheeseburger
This delicious cheeseburger originates from Sweden. It is strange simply because of the pieces used to make the cheeseburger. I would be worried about the quality of the bread, cheese, and meat after getting this shipped across seas. For the price of $6 you can get a cheeseburger in a can, or you can head over to McDonalds and get 6 of them for the same price.
NOTE: one reader explains "those canned cheesburgers are not from Sweden, but from Switzerland. They're made from katadyngroup, a Swiss company." (Source)

Canned Whole Chicken

Canned Whole Chicken
Canned meats generally don't put a rumbly in our tumbly, but in a pinch, perhaps in the event of a major cataclysm, we'd throw down with some Vienna Sausages. However, this canned chicken takes the canned-meat cake. The impossibly tiny chicken crammed into this 50-ounce can slides out with a generous portion of gelatinous goop, or rather, "delicious gravy." (Source)

Canned Scorpion

Canned Scorpion
Scorpions are a delicacy in most of Thailand. These are already cooked and they can be eaten whole without risk of poison from their venom. (Source)


4
Canned Reindeer

Canned Reindeer
This delicacy is actually very healthy for you compared to other red meats. Since reindeer are raised on a farm on diets of moss and lichen these animals have only a 2 percent fat content. Due to the time and costs in farming these animals you will have to dish out close to $30 for a can of this arctic delicacy. (Source)

Canned Silkworm Pupae

Canned Silkworm Pupae
Literally meaning pupa or chrysalis, beondegi are popular Korean street snacks, often dished out by the cupful to eager passers-by. The stewed and seasoned silkworm treats come highly recommended as bar bites. Next time you crave a quick mouthful on the go, grab a can of these crunchy chrysalises. (Source)

Canned Rattlesnake meat

In some parts of the US, you can buy cans of genuine Rattlesnake meat, which tastes a bit like tough chicken/pork. (Source)

Canned Bird's Nest Drink

Canned Bird's Nest Drink
The Chinese have served bird's nest soup, considered a delicacy, for hundreds of years. It's made using the nests of swiftlets, or cave swifts. The nests are collected by hunters on precariously tall ladders and then dissolved into soup. Said to stimulate cell growth, raise libido and boost the immune system, these edible abodes are among the most expensive animal-food products consumed; they are rare, difficult to harvest and require a labor-intensive cleaning process. Don't feel like dropping the coin to get a taste of the cure-all nectar? Pop a tab on the canned bird's nest drink, and get your vitamins on the go. (Source)

Canned Pork Brains

Canned Pork Brains
Did they think that the milk gravy would make them a little more appealing? If it said Pork Brains in tangy chipotle BBQ sauce, you may have a winner. (By the way, check out the Cholesterol level on this baby...ouch!) (Source)

Canned Tongues

Canned Tongues
Lamb tongues are definitely something that is not seen in many American grocery stores. The prices range depending on the brand, expect to pay around $5 for this can of tongues. (Source)


13
Canned Haggis

Canned Haggis
Classic Scottish haggis has several variations, but a common cooking method involves stuffing oatmeal, onions, seasonings and a mixture of minced organ meats (think heart, liver, lungs) into the stomach of a sheep. (Source)


14
Canned Duck Fat

Canned Duck Fat
This is a product that doesn't get much attention in the United States food markets. Canned duck fat is actually a rather rare treat for people in France. For 67.5 oz of duck fat you can expect to pay around $60. We usually cut the fat off of our meat which makes this a very weird canned food. (Source)
