Mock Chicken

Jim Wong | Sep 12, 2000 02:35 AM

Safeway Canada sells a cold cut called "Mock Chicken" (subtitle: "Smoked Mock Chicken and Meatloaf"), which is composed mainly of "pork and/or beef". I can't find it in the US branches.

What is the point to this stuff? Are there any religions that shun chicken? Since it is generally considered the HEALTHIEST of the three meats, I can't see any reason from that angle either. Are chicken allergies common?

Tasted pretty much like standard balogna to me -- I wasn't fooled. But even if I had been, why not just eat sliced chicken in the first place?

Or are chickens simply that rare/expensive in Canada? Hard to believe.
