I been gypped! A week ago I bought two cans of Goya HOT! (their words) vienna sausages. That night I opened a can and they were not hot, at all. They were positively mild. No spice taste whatsoever. I thought maybe it was a fluke until I opened the second can tonight. Mild again. I added some tabasco, but still that was their job. Shaking that bottle took 30 seconds out of my life. I'm steamed.
and the ingredients say 'paprika,' and 'garlic powder.' Where? In the wrapper?

Goya has betrayed me. O-boya.

Wait, let me get this straight-- you bought canned vienna sausages and ended up disappointed by the flavor?

Dude, that's crazy talk.

Oddly, we had Goya refried beans with chipotle for dinner and they had some heat. This inconsistency is weird.

jesus christ. For the good of all mankind please never buy vienna sausages again. Even thinking about them gives me the chills.

oh yeah, also: I stopped eating vienna sausages when I looked at the can and saw that one of the ingredients was "mechanically separated chicken".

One time I bought a bag of chips or some other bit of junk food from a vending machine in a hospital waiting room. I was bored enough to read the ingredients. One was "bat extract" or something similar. Um...

Vienna Sausage Sandwich Spread:

2 (5 ounce) cans vienna sausages, drained
2 hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped
4 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
1/2-3/4 cup mayonnaise (may need a little more to make it more spreadable)
1 1/2-2 teaspoons granulated sugar (depending on your sweet tooth)
garlic powder

1. in a medium sized bowl add vienna sausage,mashing well.
2. add rest of ingredients,mixing well.
3. chill for at least 2 hours.
4. serve as a sandwich spread or as a dip for assorted crackers and veggies.

That sounds yummy, Otis. Perhaps Miracle Whip and Tabasco instead of mayo and relish? Jon doesn't dig relish, and Miracle Whip, well, Miracle Whip's just one of those nectar-of-the-gods foods.

(Yes, I'm just that sick a woman...)

If there's anything ruder than vienna sausages, it's mashed vienna sausages.

With eggs!

Useless fact of the day:

Did you know that Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas is the World Champ Vienna Sausage eater? She ate 8.31 pounds of the stuff in 10 minutes.
