Strange Canned Foods

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.

Canned Whole Chicken

a96711_chickenCanned 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.”

Canned Scorpion

a96711_scorpScorpions are a delicacy in most of Thailand. These are already cooked and they can be eaten whole without risk of poison from their venom.

Canned Reindeer

a96711_reindeerThis 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.

The Sliver House designed by Boyarsky Murphy was built on the site of a single-storey wine vault that served an adjacent pub. From the street it looks impossibly small, with a 3m frontage and 8m height. It looks even smaller because of its wide and high neighbours.
