Celebrating the Week of Eating In with the nine “grossest packaged foods ever”

Pork brains in milk gravy contain 1,170 per cent of an adult’s recommended daily intake of cholesterol (though the upchuck factor may mitigate any long-term effects). This is just one of the meals featured in the Huffington Post’s new assemblage of “grossest packaged foods ever”—a parade of grotesqueries that break virtually every food rule in the book. Number one, Armour Potted Meat Food Product, contains traces of meat from several different species (beef hearts, separated chicken, partially defatted “tissue”). The canned eels occupying the penultimate slot are jellied, as if they weren’t putrid enough on their own. HuffPo is running the slide show to honour the Week of Eating In, which encourages readers to cook from scratch in their own kitchens. To be sure, even those faced with the barest of larders could do no worse.
