Canned quail eggs
Here’s a fun one. And the can needs to be admired from all angles.
Canned quail eggs. I assume hard boiled.
Many different kinds were available. I picked this brand because it was the least descriptive of the actual product. Appetizing brown.
$1.59! What a steal!
Upon cracking open the packaging, here are my first impressions:
The water is much clearer than I had imagined.
The whole thing is much less stinky than I assumed it would be. Very faint eggy smell.
Aww. Look at them. So cute and harmless.
Notice the Trix cereal in the background? That’s there because I’m an adult, and I can do anything I want.
The yolks are not nearly as florescent as advertised. That is a good thing.
I feel pretty good about this. It seems easy.
O.K. The whites are a touch leathery. Not much flavor there.
The yolks are a bit softer than I expected. Kind of creamy almost, with a flavor slightly gamier and grassier than standard non-canned chicken yolks.
With no other flavors to speak of, the creamy, gamey yolk takes over my mouth.
It’s not a powerful flavor, but it is unpleasant and persistent.
Nope. Not a winner.
I needed to rinse out my mouth a couple times. Then I ate a couple handfuls of Trix.
I would much prefer a quick, terrible flavor to the long-lasting, mild unpleasantness of those eggs.
Better luck next time.
