    Haa, that is too funny. Eww tandorri chicken…that is nasty!

  2. Ricki

    Too funny! But that “stuff” really does not bear even the vaguest resemblance to chicken. . . orange, gooey sauce?? You definitely did much better with the pomegranate ice cream. 😉

  3. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    OoOooO Australia’s products~! This is exciting. Don’t mind me. I’m just strange! Hahaha the way you describe the chicken is too funny! Really makes me squirm. 😛

  4. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    haha oh god! Reminds me of the SPAM challenge I took 🙂

  5. Simply Life

    Isn’t Vitamin D a wonderful thing?!

  6. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Pomegranate ice cream?! I want some!

    I often see tinned chicken and similar products in the supermarket and wonder who buys them. Now I know 😉

  8. Agnes

    Oh my god. It looks worse than I imagined. Thank goodness for interfriendtions!

  9. Monique

    hahahhahahha good story, that does look sick. I’m guilty of eating canned tuna like this though… Lesson learned, my friend. Lesson learned 🙂

    canned meat is wrong! we don’t even buy it for our cat (she has bikkies instead) – if I were you I would just steer clear of those shelves – though I suspect they are near the canned legumes which are brilliant! And the ironic thing is that people can make faux vegetarian chicken which probably looks more like the real thing than that stuff in a tin!

    Hannah! I gave you the Versatile Blogger Award, so check out my post. 😛

    YOU CAN NOW GET MILO OATS? The Hungry One mixes his own, has been doing it for years. I’m not sure if this is a terrible, or a wonderful day. As for the chicken in a can, my thoughts to to you. Hope the days are getting brighter.

  13. Maria @ Scandifoodie

    I’ve seen that in the supermarket and all I could think of was “that is just so wrong…” The pomegranate ice cream, on the other hand, looks delicious!!

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha you’re hilarious Hannah! 😛 And I tried it once and it tasted way too much like tuna. I won’t be returning to buy more! You did the wise thing that’s for sure.

    I have seen several work colleagues weaken to the lure of canned chicken. Why? I have no idea. It universally looks like cat food. And it all seems to be produced in Thailand. I remain aloof from it’s dubious charms. I haven’t seen the Milo Oats, it seems something I’m unlikely to try- nutella oats maybe, or I did just buy a big jar of hainanese kaya on the weekend, maybe kaya oats…. when it gets just a teeny bit cooler.

    All I can say is I’m gobsmacked! Canned chicken. What WERE you thinking.

  17. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Eew 😯 😯 … looks disgusting! I’ve never been a friend of canned foods, especially meat, it’s rather dry or slimy and tends to have an unnatural taste. Good to change it in for the icecream! 😀

  18. Rach

    Hahahah! This was hilarious! Sorry you got sucked into that, but I’m glad you had a BFF to help you see the light! 🙂

  19. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Chicken in a can? I’d be chickening out of this one too.

    But Milo oats on the other hand!? I can’t wait to make up my own version asap!

  20. Alisa Fleming

    You are hilarious! What a strange impulse buying habit. That chicken sounds repulsive … glad you passed 🙂

  21. ASHLEA

    yikes, that looks scary. I will stick with the marzipan chocolate please! 🙂

  22. Erin@TheFoodMentalist

    Chicken in a can, I remember when this came out, oh so strange! The milo oats have me intrigued 🙂

  23. Margaret

    Hannah you are a very talented writer. You could write a story about brushing your teeth and I’m sure we’d find it extremely entertaining.
    Canned chicken does not belong with creative people like you!

  24. Anna Johnston

    Wow Hannah…., you take this doldrums & a lack of Vitamin D to extremes girlfriend…, I think you’ve got a dangerous streak tucked in there somewhere which of course we all admire in you, especially when you bite into foreign chocolates & come up praising or naming & shaming…., but canned chicken!!!!! Thank goodness for BFF’s is all I can say 🙂

  25. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    What a coincidence! I can’t believe you bought milo oats! I did that a few days back too even when I have milo and oats in my pantry too. I guess curiosity got the better of me. I tried it, and it’s not too bad actually:) I added another teaspoon of milo to it though.

  26. Teresa @ Teresa Tastes & Travels

    On behalf of your dog, thanks for just throwing it away 😉

  27. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    haha, so you didn’t eat it? What about the milo oats? I saw that a few days ago in the supermarket and have been curious about it – not for me, but perhaps as a way to entice clients to eat oats?? I love your stories.
    Heidi xo

    I remember seeing those advertisements on TV and all three of us said ‘YUCK!’ at the same time. Just….. no.

  29. Camille

    “it looked so disgusting that I couldn’t help myself.”

    Bah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    I love you.

  30. Chobani Yoghurt Fun and Vanilla Craisin Muffins - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] In my defense, I still detest the majority of yoghurts available in supermarkets (thin-runny-mucus-like-gloopy-overly-sweetened travesties). I once found myself lured by a Fat-Free No Sugar Cheesecake-Flavoured yoghurt, and I’m almost certain a fairy lost its wings the moment I peeled back the plastic lid. I ate it, because I’d paid for it, but that was a sad day in the life of Hannah. (See also: canned chicken.) […]

    I tried canned chicken for the first time the other day on a recommendation from a friend. NEVER AGAIN. I have never tasted anything so awful.
