Here you have a canned sandwich or the candwich (see what they did there). The tin comes with all the ingredients you need to make up your favorite PB&J sandwich. It has a shelf life of one year and apparently it tastes OK.
Grass jelly
Grass jelly is an Asian dessert found in Asia. It's usually served cool in a bowl, by itself or with fruits. The jelly is cut into cubes and mixed with syrup to make a drink or dessert that will be perfect for hot weather.
Bird's Nest
Bird's nests are very popular in Asia and are revered for their medicinal benefits. The southeast Asian swiflets weave their spittle into nests for their young so there's that ingredient. And if that wasn't enough, there's some white fungus thrown in for good measure, which is a popular thickener in Chinese cuisine and medicine.
Pork brains...
This product is pretty self-explanatory...
Rattlesnake is most commonly found in the US – mainly in western parts. The anatomy of the rattlesnake is very similar to that of a bony fish; a meal you wouldn't want to eat in a hurry. The taste is said to be similar to very mild white meat, mainly chicken.
You can thank the Germans for making cheeseburgers in cans a reality. The cooking process involves cooking the unopened can in boiling water for 10 minutes. Although the idea might be a great one, this hikers' meal hasn't sent critics wild.
Whole chicken
A meal fit for Christmas? Or Thanksgiving? Maybe even Easter? Sweet Sue says you can expect home goodness in every product.
Whole chicken
And here's what it looks like when it's opened...
Silkworms are usually found and enjoyed in Korea, China and Vietnam. The peondegi (silkworm pupae) in Korea are steamed or boiled and are seasoned to your liking and eaten as a snack. And lucky you, you can buy your own silkworm can and take it home to enjoy later. According to The Guardian, silkworms have a pungent, bitter smell and a similar taste, and the worms are said to burst 'juicily' in your mouth. It's probably an acquired taste...
Saba squid in soy sauce is a delicacy in the Philippines. Although in the West, calamares and fried squid is very popular and common, along with octopus, this squid comes out whole.
Chicken and dumplings
Another Sweet Sue chicken dish gracing the list, but this time with the added extra of dumplings! Sweet Sue products promise to give you a made-from-scratch feel with 98% fat-free chicken breast for extra moisture and flavor.
Karhu pate (Bear pate)
Rupi Sen bear pâté, or karhu pâté as it is known in Finland, is a pâté concoction. There's 25.5% bear meat, 22.5% pork, pork liver and more.
Tamales is a much-loved traditional Mesoamerican dish made from masa (a usually corn-based starchy dough) which is then steamed in a banana leaf or corn husk. The canned tamales (pictured) don't look the favorites you would buy at a restaurant, but maybe they'll surprise you?
Just what you've been missing in your life, a can of salted oven-baked zebra tarantula. The can contans one large tarantula, which is around 6-8cm and weighs 8-10 grams. There's no need to rush to eat it as it has a one-year shelf life. Website thailandunique recommends serving it with some sweet chili sauce.
Spam with bacon
Spam has been eaten and enjoyed for decades, especially during World War II. This can of Spam is just another example of trying to jazz up a classic canned food with something a little different. And let's be honest, bacon goes with everything these days!
Haggis is a traditional Scottish sausage made from a sheep's stomach stuffed with diced sheep's liver, lungs and heart, oatmeal, onion, suet and seasoning. You won't meet many Scots who haven't tried the stuff, which is very popular in most eateries. But what does all this goodness look like once it's out of the tin we hear you say?
This. It looks like this. A brown mixture of meat, but who's to say this couldn't be a new favorite of yours?
Thai fried rice with crocodile
Have you ever wanted to have some crocodile with your Thai food but have been disappointed when it isn't on the menu? Well, you don't need to fret anymore, because you can now buy the low-fat, low-calorie, high-protein meat ready-made. You could serve it to guests at a dinner party and see if crocodile really does taste like chicken?
Liver spread
The French and Belgians aren't the only people who enjoy a bit of pâté now and then. In the Philippines, you will find a very popular liver spread brand called Reno. The beef liver spread is commonly enjoyed with a bread called pandesal, but the spread is very different to its European counterparts. The taste is hot a spicy and the texture is a bit gritty, in comparison to pâté's smooth texture.
Sago worms
Here's a new ingredient to use during BBQ season – barbecue-flavored sago worms. These worms are considered a delicacy in much of southeast Asia and are eaten either raw or roasted. The grubs are described as creamy tasting when raw, and like bacon or meat when cooked. But we'll let you be the judge of that.
Pigeon pâté
Like most game meat, pigeon pâté goes well with a crusty French baguette and whole grain breads. Complimentary flavors include cider, red wine, apple, plum or sweet cherries.
No need to order take-out or watch over the oven while you create your favorite creamy, cheesy Italian dish! It comes ready-made now.
Rhino Beetle Larvae
Another grub to chow down on from our friends at The larvae have a shelf life of two-years from the date of manufacturing and you'll receive one rhino beetle larvae in the tin. Rhino beetle larvae are said to be rich in protein, calcium, phosphorus and iron, but that isn't good enough for you, you can always smother it in BBQ seasoning for an added kick!
Reindeer pâté
This Arctic delicacy is made from cuts of Swedish reindeer meat and fat ground up into a spreadable paste. But reindeer meat is said to have one of the lowest fat contents of any red meats – just 2%. This might have to be the go-to pâté at Christmas time then.
Roasted scorpions
Heterometrus Longimanus Scorpions are common in more parts of Thailand and are a north-eastern delicacy. They are said to taste similar to a sea prawn with a slightly bitter taste. In this tin you would get one scorpion – that can be eaten whole if you choose! – covered in a little sugar, soy sauce and BBQ flavoring. And it will keep for two years.
