    It's VI-EENA, and just reading this thread gave me gas.

    How about sardines?

    Where my family is from we called them Vi-eenies. My Dads favorite outdoors food, along with deviled ham and Pork and beans all served cold on a tailgate usually on a cracker box.
    He didnt even give us paper plates or plastic spoons. haha memories.
     
  4. According to Wiki they're supposed to be an Americanized (cheapened?) version of Vienna style sausages, which in Vienna are actually called Frankfurters, because the guy who invented them was from Frankfort Germany but moved to Vienna Austria.

    I've had some dang fine sausage in Germany and one of my favorite foods is Swedish Korv at Christmas. Somehow these have never been in the same ballpark.

    Has anybody ever actually tried that stuff in the similar shaped cans that says "Potted Meat Product"?

    I have had about all of it. Its all some type of tripe salted to hell and back some with tomato sauce added some with smoke flavoring but its all pretty much the same product.

    I like the viennas, ate many a cans growing up and still do sometimes.

    How about the potted meat.

    I like sardines in mustard sauce or louisianna hot sauce. Even better are the fish steaks in louisianna hot sauce.

    ETA: The wife prefers I eat the sardines when shes not home, she can't stand the smell of them.

    I had a Great Aunt who called them "little peters". We used to take her to town to shop and stuff because she was a widow and just right down the road. I can still hear her say get me 4 cans of "little peters", I was traumaized in my youth :( LOL

    I'll never forget the attitude I got from my ex-wife when I picked can up once when we first started going out. she called Vienna sausages and Spam white trash food and refused to let me buy them.

    It was one of those signs I wish I had paid attention too. The misery it would have saved me.

    My Dad loved that stuff, spread it on Ritz crackers. It looked and tasted like shortening mixed with catfood to me.

    Unfortunatly he dined on it just before embarking on a family ocean fishing excursion.

    I distinctly remember the look on his face after he hurled his snack overboard and I turned to my brother and exclaimed, "Alright! Dads chumming the water. We'll catch lots of fish now!"
     
  17. No thanks. I'll stick to Underwood's Deviled Ham and Spam. tom.:cool:

    Ate a Vienna Sausage sandwich last night. I don't read the ingredients. Same with potted meat. Like the taste of both.

    The film they leave on your tongue and teeth is the best.
