Believe it or not, GAME, a well-known tech retrailer in the UK, has been making the Christmas dinner in a can since 2013. The idea was that instead of spending time with actual people eating their Christmas dinner, some gamers just wanted to eat in a hurry and get back to playing as quickly as possible.
The original “Christmas Tinner” (pictured above) contained 9 seperate courses, all stacked in layers to optimize the order of consumption. Here’s a review of the original can:
Unfortunately, if you were a vegan gamer, you were out of luck since the can contained animal products. But now, the company has just unveiled their new vegan version!
There’s vegan gravy, mushroom wellington, pigs in aubergine blankets, tofu and stuffing, as well as your go-to winter veggies including squash, sprouts, and parsnips.
Each of those layers sound pretty good, it’s just the aspect of it being crammed into a cylinder that might (definitely) alter the tastes and textures.
There’s also a dessert layer, including vegan custard and choccy cake. Which raises the obvious question, are festive feasters meant to meticulously section off the dessert portion, or simply enjoy a bit of sweetness with every savoury bite?
All that for just £2! Looks… *ahem* … yummy, right?
