i ate it as a kid and had no problem with it. I still dont have a problem with it. Of course, i dont eat in oriental restaurants and such so as far as im concerned the only place to get chow mein IS from a can.

Spagetti'O or ever how you spell them have been around for ages also. For me, there is no food out of a can (no meals that is) I would bother with; frozen maybe, even then I go for the real thing 99% of the time. I have to admit I have fallen in love with a couple of Bob Evans side dishes. They are not healthy or cheap, but they sure are good.

Like a few others have said, many of us were raised with "eat it cause you get nothing else til the next meal" That makes some things taste better than they really do. Today's kids (I was it with my grandkids and now my little great granddaughter) "what would you like to eat?"

I cannot believe that no one has posted a recipe for:

SPIDERS!!!

[CENTER]
1 6oz pkg butterscotch morsels
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 3oz can chow mein noodles

Combine morsels and peanut butter and microwave on high 2 minutes, stirring once. Add noodles, stirring to coat. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto wax paper on a cookie sheet. Chill in refrigerator to set. Yummy!
Recipe can be doubled/tripled

Funny that you mentioned about Chow Mein. I never had it in the can. The other day, I called Chinese food to deliver. I normally chose a dish that I can turn it into something else with the left overs. For example, with Egg Fu Yung, I make sandwiches out of them. The steam rice, I later make fried rice with it. With dishes that are stir fried, I boil some spaghetti (or any noodle that I have on hand), mix in a little of hoisin sauce and soy sauce, then I add the stir fry dishes to make Chow Mein! Try it sometimes, you'd throw away those cans in a sec!

Wow, I never heard of it until now. You might as well make it yourself, fresh and healthy.

Can tasty Asian food ever come out of a can?
NO! Unless it's soup (as always).
