A Grocery Store Challenge

9 Jun

Here is a challenge for all of you. Go to your neighborhood grocery store – just your typical Ralph’s, Albertson’s, Publix, Harris Teeter, etc. – and find a can like this:


Yep, that is “horseflesh stew” (I prefer the Google Translate translation when the words are typed in on separate lines – if typed on one line it changes to “horse meat stew”).  This was taken at the corner grocery where Ben and I shop most often, but they also have it at the store directly across the street from us.  Neither one is a specialty store of any kind.  It is located in the canned meat section with canned tuna, anchovies, calamari, foie gras, beef stew, lamb stew (see the can next to the horse?), and many others.  This definitely caught me off guard when I saw it shortly after we arrived.  Since then I have also seen horse meat on menus.

So, can any of you find horseflesh in your grocery?

до свидания!

    To be fair, the can is pretty clear as to the contents!

    Then again, Gerber uses a baby’s head on its products.
