    less of the spam bashing please. I like a spam and brown sauce sandwich or some spam fritters. I will be the guardian of tinned meat the world over. Corned beef, pek chopped pork, the list continues!

    It's connective tissue on bones that they get of the bones with a pressure water gun. Like stringy muscly bits you would throw away if you normally had chicken. Yum, now eat up!

    The Princes tinned ones are disgusting. Hot dogs from a jar are usually quite nice though.

    mostly rusk and mechainicaly recovered meat (i.e constructive tissue from bones etc)
    I actually think they're alright, and they're v. cheap and light compared to most sausages. However having just read the above sentence, I don't think I will ever eat them again. I mean, I knew they weren't 'normal' sausage meat, but tissue and bones? *shudder*

    You poor deprived soul - the hot dogs at the end of a trip to Ikea are your reward as a child for putting up with looking at mass produced swedish minimalist furniture for 2 hours.

    I used to eat them when I was younger. A couple of weeks ago I was out with my dad and he said 'God, I can't eat hot dogs anymore!'. When I asked him why, he pointed out the list of ingredients... Now I can't bring myself to eat hot dogs at all :/

    I don't understand why people have a fear of mechanically removed meat. Yes, it's tendons, skin and other bits, but it's reconstituted into something that some people enjoy the taste of. If you like the taste, why would you not eat it? There is nothing scary about offal or other animal parts. And it's good to use every part of an animal.

    Although, personally, I despise the artifical sweet smokey smell of hot dogs, and thus don't eat them.

    I suppose in a way it's good that every useable part of the animal is being used in some way. It's what the native Americans do when they kill a buffalo - use every single bit!

    I used to love those hot dogs when I was younger but never straight from the tin, I'd microwave them, not for too long as they'd explode

    I like them. But then again I often seem to prefer cheap, rubbish, plain food to the 'good' stuff.
    This. :yep:

    Those hot dogs are lush. I could eat some right now.
