You Can Now Get A Full Christmas Dinner In A Single Can

Getting together with family, attending holiday parties, and listening to Christmas music are part of the fun during the holiday season.

But if we're really being honest, there's nothing more exciting than finally opening up presents on Christmas morning, then following it up with a delicious dinner in the evening.

Many families host big dinners that usually include favorites like roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and pies. It takes a lot of planning and is very time-consuming, but seeing everyone enjoy the meal is all worth it.

However, if you're someone who would rather spend time watching movies or playing games by the fireplace instead of being in the kitchen for hours, there's a solution for you from GAME.  

The U.K.-based website for gamers have listed a product called the "Christmas Tinner," which is a nine-course Christmas meal, layered into a can.

"The GAME Christmas Tinner is the ultimate innovation for gamers across the nation who can’t tear themselves away from their new consoles and games on Christmas Day,” read the description on the website.

The nine layers include: scrambled eggs and bacon, mince pies, turkey and potatoes, gravy, bread sauce, cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts or broccoli, roast carrots and parsnips, and Christmas pudding for dessert.

Created by graphic designer Chris Godfrey in 2013, the absurdity of it all had people convinced that the Christmas meal in a can was a hoax, but at least one YouTuber was able to prove that the concoction is indeed real.

Steviejacko was able to purchase a can at a GAME store "before they ran out," and gave a full review on his YouTube page.

Christmas Tinner sold out almost instantly, but GAME has not restocked their supplies. This prompted people to speculate that they released the bizzare product for the sake of publicity.

Of course, there were many people who had some very strong reactions over the fact that such a product exists.

Well, if you're brave enough to try this, then more power to you. I think if I'm too lazy to cook a Christmas meal, I would rather just pick up a Swanson turkey dinner instead.

Would you give Christmas Tinner a try?
