Feast your eyes on the Mini Piglet! This pressure-formed pig-shaped pork monstrosity is a revolution in culinary alliteration (looks and tastes like the animal it began as). And it's on sale at Costco right now!
The photo was snapped by a reader of The Consumerist.
Here's a larger version of the pic.
The Mini Piglet, it turns out, is made by Illinois-based Greenfield Farms and can be purchased online here for $59.12.
The molded meat log has quite a quirky personality too! It apparently can't wait to be cooked up "crisp and tasty."
Hello! My name is Banquet Fiesta Piglet!
My middle name IS BONELESS!!!
I'M EASY, just fire up the oven to 300F (I fit almost each of them).
Cover me with the aluminum foil for the first 2 hours, then bake me at 350-400F for additional 1.5 hour or until golden brown.
I'LL BE PERFECTLY CRISP AND TASTY.
Serves from 8-12 HUNGRY GUESTS.
Thanks, Mr. Piglet!
Given that Costco just got liquor sales privatized in Washington state, we're hoping they'll soon have some potato-shaped vodka bottles to help people drink away the shame of having consumed the porky likeness of baby pig.
