    I'm not giving Amazon a plug, do your own on line shopping.
    Amazon is just one example.
    However Amazon does have great prices.
    Just a thort.
    I like canned tuna.
    I've had fresh tuna and canned is better.
    Heart healthy and great source of protein.
    Canned foods will tide you over 'till you perfect your
    shooting skills, atalatl throwing, knife throwing, sling shot
    shooting..........................just kidding.

    Small Canned hams, sardines, Spam (YUK!), Vienna Sausages, Tuna, Corned beef, canned chicken, Underwood deviled meats... I devote one entire cabinet to canned meats. There used to be a canned bacon that was GREAT and I always used it when camping but it is gone and the new stuff is not even close to the same. The stuff I used to get was just raw smoked bacon and cheap the new stuff is precooked and very expensive.. I wonder how the precooked boxed bacon holds up these days. I haven't tried it yet. It isn't meat but I generally keep a gallon of lard on hand. It is pure calories and you can add it to anything you cook in a pot.

    I look at most of these things as seasoning to go into beans and rice, soups and stews rather than as stand alone foods. When food is short you cook everything in a pot so you don't lose any of the available nutrition. Roasting things over a fire wastes a lot of the fat and stuff that you really need.

    Meat is important because you need the L-carnitine in it to help your body metabolize fats.

    Good afternoon Jeagar,

    Yes, am a believer in canned meats, especially seafood categories like kippers, sardines, tuna, anchovies, salmon

    There's an Asian grocery store south of here in the big town where there are many canned meat products not seen in the Krogers, Walmarts, Aldis. My Prep Gp has a co-op so we must get the basic stuff that our member-restaurant owner uses in his place. The Asian stuff is personal purchase and usually not needed.

    Ages ago, there were cans of Canadian bacon. Haven't seen in, well, ages, ... at least here in Virginia.

    I'm the same. Especially fish. I've never seen canned bacon. It would be interesting to taste it and see what it's like.

    We used to buy canned pies (I can't remember the name of them), either steak or steak and kidney, which primarily came from the UK. You would take the lid off with a can opener, put them in the oven for 40 minutes or so and the puff pastry would rise. They were absolutely delicious but unfortunately they stopped selling them over here. The canned pie base was handy to reuse too. We had several of them kicking around. Not sure if you can still get them in the UK. Wish I could remember the name of them. It's really annoying me!

    There used to be some canned bacon that was cheap and great for camping and such. Celebrity sliced bacon, it was sold by K-mart. It was basically just raw bacon rolled up tight and then canned. I'm not sure what happened it disappeared. There is a new caned bacon, Yodders I think, but it is insanely expensive, precooked and not worth it. Being pre-cooked means that most of the fat is cooked away. I liked the Celebrity because I could fry the bacon and then fry eggs and such.

    That is $30.00 for 9 ounces!!!!

    I have a bit of commercial canned protein on the shelf. Over the years I've canned salmon, smoked salmon, beans and ham, caribou, moose, corned moose, and beef. I'm probably missing some.

    I have tons of canned tuna. It is staple of my diet, and I eat it almost every day. I have not ventured out into the other canned meats. I don't know why. Just some reluctance.

    I also like tinned fruit. You can get some wonderful varieties. Great if you can't get fresh fruit. Also great for making pies.

    Yes! That's them! Do they still make them?

    Used to love them with mashed spuds and peas. Yum!

    I wonder why we can't buy them here anymore. I'll have to investigate other shops to see if they may sell them.

    I have seen canned ape that my grandfather accidently bought . No one wanted to eat something that looked that close to being human so it got throwed away . That was many years ago and I don't know if that is something that is still on the market .

    What? I've never heard of canned ape. I can't imagine the Sudanese or any other country in Africa canning ape - ever. I know some nefarious groups have tried to smuggle different illegal meats into western countries under the guise of other meats but never canned. It certainly shouldn't be on the market now, seeing as they're an endangered species. I think they've been endangered for quite a number of years now. Geez ... what a disturbing thought. Are you sure it wasn't canned food for monkeys?

    Taking my third load of food stuff to work and augment my cache in my locker...

    Ravioli, two cans of spam, two cans of chicken meat, a can of soup.

    Will eventually be adding some packages of dried fruit and nuts as well. I like this stuff called tropical fruit mix..

    Been staying close to home but need to go out and located two fresh cans of sterno fuel to replace the cans I've had in
    that locker for years now.

    Never cared for sardines or Vienna Sausages but will tolerate them as need be. They are compact...in size.

    Though it is not long term storage..I will often take to work with me a can of Pringles chips....but the chips have been devoured. I use the can and lid for inserting a tube of saltine crackers and putting them in my daily locker...not this locker on which I am stocking up.

    it is important that you have a balanced diet, therefore you need protein, fruit & vegetable, grain, Fat. Meat with it high protein even if canned filled out that requirement for protein and fat . Beans are also an excellent source of protein . I have bought all sort of corned beef, spam, canned ham, click and clam , canned luncheon meats tuna , salmon , That were on sale at a very low price. some of this stuff i remember from my youth. It might not be that satisfying but it will keep you healthy and able to work. I watch a lot of survival reality shows like alone ect. and one thing i have learned is that without good nutrition your body and energy levels drop to places where you can not do anything other than sleep.

    It said on the can canned ape . The can looked sorta like a canned ham thus the mistake buying it .That was about 55 years ago . Back then you could send off and buy you a mail order monkey for a pet . I guess things have changed some since then .

    Hahahaha. Same as you Caribou. I found some smoked anchovies which I've tucked into. Absolutely divine! I've also got some smoked muscles and oysters but I keep them for special occasions. Am tempted though ...
