    I can't say much about the nutritional benefits of this product but it is yummy when you microwave a few slices and slam it onto some buttered toast. If you have more time, fry it up like bacon.

    "Is Don, is good"

    Isn't this the thing that forms the generous topping of meat lovers pizzas. Not expensive, very tasty, wonderful as an occasional treat.

  •  

    Don sliced ham/chicken lunch meat is also 40% off, so cheaper than the Aldi/Coles/WW bulk packs.

    You've got to wonder what goes into a product that costs $5.80 a kg when you factor in processing, packaging, shipping, marketing, profit and supermarket mark up.

    How much did the raw ingredients cost? What are the raw ingredients?

      If only there was an ingredients list we could look at.

    Yummy, mystery meat, a Kinder Surprise for all ages!

  •  

    A combination of lung,ears, brain matter, intestine, anus and crotch, assorted shredded soft tissue, testicle, bones, skin which is processed into mush

    Think a whole chicken which is available for purchase at the supermarket. What remains from that chook after being defeathered and before entering the packet is manufactured into meat shapes eg kransky, don meat rolls,nuggets, pet food etc.

    When they say contains real beef, and you imagine a steak what you are probably getting is manufactured meat. Tasty as it contains fat and salt. Healthy probably not

      I know it sounds gross but I think there’s something to be said for transforming all the waste products into something edible. If you’re going to kill an animal, it’s nice to appreciate and use every part of it.

        Probably started decades ago, when the US had a bumper crop of corn. They spruiked corn oil as the healthiest oil. Then with what was left they made high fructose corn syrup, which began to replace sugar. Back then a person with a BMI of >25 was overweight and >30 was considered obese. Nowadays there are people with BMI of >60 and 25-30 considered normal.

        I'm not talking about the muscular people, but if you have a normal person with a BMI 26, and tell them they are overweight, you will be laughed at simply because they appear lean in comparison. BMI 20-25 (was normal) but now considered skinny

        Starts with early childhood with parents with normal children think that they are not feeding their kids enough as fat appears to be the new normal. We are not as bad as the US, we don't yet operate cranes to put the super obese onto the operating tables

        No different to meat pies, 5% real meat and 95% lucky dip assortment of organs, offal, skin, tendons etc.

        The chunky meat pies are probably 50% real meat and 50% lucky dip.

        If you think about all the processed meat products we have such as nuggets, soups, battered frozen fish, sausage rolls, canned meats, you're lucky at times to even have 50% of the product being "meat", the other 50% is water, salt, preservatives, flour etc

          Which is why they are probably ok as an occasional treat, and not as a regular meal.

          We pay for the convenience factor with our health sadly.
