Where can I try Pink Slime?

I'm curious to see what exactly this stuff tastes like and it's nutrition info but how do I find some? Budget chicken-fried steak frozen dinners? Fast food dollar menus? Generic potted meat?

If anyone can back up and verify a product that uses this slime please share it's name.

  1. Try your local elementary school!

    1. grocery store ground beef. especially the frozen stuff in a tube.

      1. If you buy the cheapest ground beef you can find, that is packed at an offsite packer, I imagine you will have some pink slime in the contents. If you do this, make a hamburger, and let us know how it tastes!

        Has anyone noticed an improvement in McD's hamburgers since they stopped using this adulterated meat? I had a McD's hamburger several months ago and it was very disappointing. Perhaps the quality has improved?

        1. The problem is, you need not only a product made with it, such as a beef hot dog, but a control — a hot dog made without it but otherwise identical. You can't buy these, you need to find reports from the food scientists who developed it, and take their word for it. Here's a link to an example:

          Or find a source of the product and conduct your own experiments.

          1. There is a brand of frozen hamburger patties by the name of "Flanders", if you really want to try what pink slime is, you'll be sorry. They got them at WM.
