One of the mini-marts has a 2kg tin (from memory, it might be 1kg) of "chicken meat" it's been trying to flog off for as long as I can recall. I'll grab a photo next time I'm in there.

Yep, that looks like the same product, but in a bigger can. Tempting, no?

WTF, and kinda gives 'Only in Cambodia' a bit of a pass. What could they possibly have been thinking.

Careful with those asian cans of chicken, duck or squib.
If they taste a bit fishy they are probably canned Mutton Birds from Australia. (Short-tailed shearwaters, a sea bird). Apparently that is how most of australian exports of frozen mutton birds to asia end up.
True story, big biz. i bought one myself in Indonesia. Sardine tasting "duck".

So stick to Heinz Mean Beanz only, from cans.
(and The Chocolate Shop on St 240 for peppered dark chocolate)

Sweet Sue is a brand marketed by Bumblebee Seafoods, an American company. There's no need for concern, I wouldn't eat that canned chicken unless I'd been starved for a long time.

please explain why american beans are like hershey so your firends asked for "heinz beans" (american>) and Cadbuty's?
and "a full English (with Heinz baked beans)."
methinks the tog is wriggling like maybottrying to explain away explaining her chats with karl marx :stir:
The nicest thing I can think about you is that English is not your first language and you have trouble understanding it.

I have never seen any member on any forum try and twist and spin like you.

Still, as trolling seems to be your main occupation you have to try something.
So is that your explanation? thinking a full english(with heinz baked beans) implies heinz is English is my poor English and not your ignorance of heinz's history?
