Food: Frozen
Offal ready-meals   (+2, -4)  [vote for, against]
A range of frozen meals made with tripe

I had a cunning plan for a range of frozen meals made with various bits of offal and tripe. I was initially inspired when walking around the office zombie-like muttering "Brains! Braaaaiiins!" (as one does), which led to the idea of a ready-meal with brains. The idea gained momentum: intestines, glands, stomach, eyes etc could all form the basis for a range of ready- meals.

Apparently all of these sweetbreads (growing up I never understood why they were sweetbreads and sweet treats were sweetmeats) are tasty and nutritious, and they are certainly cheap. As people move back toward eating 'real' food, and these items become increasingly popular again, the mnarket will boom! I am particularly confident of their reception among kids.

I even have an ad campaign for the brains one: a group of zombies staggering around (surprise surprise) groaning for fresh brains, with a voiceover: "Hungry for tasty, tasty brains? Try a new Mansell Meal with brains! They're offal-ly good!" Other slogans could include "Have you got the stomach for a Mansell Meal? (intestines version)"; "Triple your taste with Tripe!"; "A meal you can look in the eye!"; and "Be Glad wth Glands!". Any other suggestions are welcome.

They also sell pork head, meat with lard, soya chops and dumplings with strawberries. No, I don't know why, except that they're Polish. [angel, Nov 16 2006]

I dunno why everyone makes such a fuss about offal. Never had steak and kidney pie? Delicious. Offal is yummy.

Except for lungs. Don't even TALK to me about lungs.

[angel] thanks for the absolutely disgusting yet hilarious links. Mmm...dry trachea. Just goes to show that reality is often weirder than one can imagine.

[bleh] they wouldn't be people's lungs (or any other body parts); but from more traditional eating animals like, sheep, cows, pigs, goats, giraffes, and yaks etc.

However, good idea! "Lovely, lovely lungs! (or luscious?) So light and airy!"

in the US they have this product known as "Potted Meat". It has a "pop top" lid and you just use your knife to spread out the "innard" goodness onto your white bread. Most US southerner's put a big slice of salted tomato on it too.

yum (not!)

Tripe is a delicacy in Portugal. I think this could really work there. It's not for me to decide whether someone should eat a cows stomach, after all. Just don't invite me to dinner. Unless you want human vomit for dessert.
