I just tried these for the first time the other day actually, not impressed, lol.

They were .50 a pop at walmart though so a cheap protein prep.... guess I gotta eat at least a few cans if only to rotate through them.

You're right!!! I'd totally forgotten this.

I like em rinsed and a lil bit of mustard as a dip. Or on Crackers.

I must get some one day.... My wife gives me the "Stink Eye" when I reach for them or the Spam Can. I love the stuff. And have eaten it all my life, of and an!

I had some a couple weeks ago. I used to like them when I was younger, but I didn't enjoy this last can too much.

"ingredients: Mechanically Separated Chicken, Chicken Broth, Water, Beef, Pork..."

I've wondered for a while, what that is?

Never had them and from the looks of your picture, I will not go out and find some anytime soon.

They are nasty but I confess to getting a can or two once or twice a year. After I eat them I ask myself, "Why???" I did get them in school lunch boxes some so maybe it's a nostalgia thing. Or maybe I forget how nasty they are. For what it's worth the BBQ one are slightly better.

My grandmother used to serve them to us cut in halves on a saltine cracker with a thin slice of red onion on top. I remember them as tasting pretty good. I wouldn't buy them to try it again though

At least on that end, she was probably actually looking out for you. I would expect my GF to give me a hard time if she saw me buying that crap. Not because it's white trash food, I wouldn't care about that, but it's just plain bad for you.

Pretty much ground-up leftovers from meat processing. I saw a clip on how hot dogs are made. Haven't touched one since.

In fact, here you go:


Watch it through the Youtube site in 1080p quality, so you get the full effect.

They are bad. Bad for you.

Watch "Food Inc." and you won't want to eat 1/2 the food you see.

Whether they're "bad for you" isn't really the question. Everything's bad in excess.

Are they worse for you than M&M's, Snicker Bars, Potato Chips, and cookies? That's the question.

I eat sweets and carbs, I always want more. Protein, fats, sardines, and vienna sausages satisfy. So a 50 cent can of Vienna sausages vs. a bag of chocolate chip cookies that leaves you hungry - which is worse?

Years ago they had just come out with chicken Vienna sausages and I was making a delivery to a grocery store. The store mgr told me the crew wouldn't be in for another 45 min to unload the truck. I bought an box of saltines and a can of the chicken sausages and went back to my truck. I ate a couple of saltines while I opened the can and noticed a little dog sniffing around the dumpster. I got one of the sausages out but 1/2 of it was all I could handle. I whistled at the dog and said here boy. When I got the dog's attention I threw the sausages to him by the dumpster. He went over and sniffed them, them went to the other end of the dumpster and started sniffing again without ever taking a bite.

Sitting on my white throne for half the freakin' night. I shouldn't have eaten the damn thing and I was already nauseous after consuming them.

The crazy thing is that once upon a time, I thought that they were good pogie baits - a great alternative to choking down MREs. Now I'm not so sure.

Here in KY they are considered a traditional native food. It is pronounced Vi-Ay-Nee and you don't say "sausage" - it's just a "can of vi-ay-nees."

I went to a meeting in the supreme court conference room at the state capitol during a court recess a few months ago. The supreme court justice who was chairman of the committee had his lunch of viennas and saltines during the meeting.

I'm not a big fan of those or beanee weenee, but my father usually brings both on hunting trips, so I eat them sometimes.

I have never eaten one. I do however have a couple cases at the house. For the price and shelf life, I figured it was a decent calorie booster to my SHFT stock in the event I made a miscalculation or as a last ditch reserve.

Vienna sausages and potted meat is classic camping food, but when guests are over we break out the Spam.
