Worst canned foods ever.
Everyone loves convenience but there's only so much quality that can be preserved when companies start canning foods like BBQ chicken sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly, cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Then again, hot dogs even fresh are not the definition of fine food to begin with.
For many of these canned foods, the dish is considered a delicacy in one part of the world or another. Haggis is wildly popular in Scotland. Duck fat is big in France. Silkworm pupae is sold on the streets in Korea. None of the above are considered close to normal in these parts and we would probably never seen them in cans in the US. Then again, the people who enjoy those weird foods probably frown on the canned buzzard gizzards and canned creamed possum, two foods that also make this list.
What are the most disgusting canned food in the world? Other foods on this list are just weird. Canned huitlacoche is something along the lines of hibernating excrement fungi that grows on corn. Canned birds nest drink is made from actual birds nests. Canned Russian herring is literally a can of fish mouths, complete with big, scary teeth. Whoever decided these things are edible needs to get their head examined.All of these foods are way worse than the gross foods that other cultures actually love.

Canned Creamed Possum
For the unfamiliar, a possum is nothing more than a really big rat. Creaming possum and putting it in a can with sweet potato and "coon fat gravy" does not make it any less inedible. Please tell me people don't actually call this food.
Canned Fish Assholes
If you're not into canned fish mouths from Russia, perhaps you're more of a canned fish assholes kind of person. We don't even want to think about where the asshole is on a fish or what it tastes like let alone why this strange canned food is popular enough to come in Manhattan and Wisconsin style.
Available in peanut butter and jelly in strawberry and grape varieties, as well as BBQ chicken, the Candwich is a ready to eat sandwich in a can. As a bonus, there's also a candy surprise in each can. Here we thought a sandwich in a can was a scary enough surprise on its own.
Canned Duck Fat
Many people meticulously trim their meat before cooking it and simply discard the fat. Somewhere, someone had a brilliant idea to can that fat and sell it for $60 for a tiny can, like with canned duck fat. They do say that one man's trash is another man's treasure.
