This might be of interest........

I visited a large freezer warehouse yesterday and on their dock was a 40 ‘ refrigerated container load of premium extra large chicken paws. I learned that chicken paws are chicken feet but are labeled as paws to comply with Chinese nomenclature. The cartons were labeled in both English and Chinese. The product is shipped on a more or less continuing or regular basis.

The Amish aren’t buying out the Congress and the administration.

I remember my mother skinning the chicken legs and then adding them to soup broth. They were then discarded.

Could they be used in the manufacturing of chicken broth or dog food? I imagine they contain a lot of collagen.

What in the world are chicken feet used for? Esp. a trailer load.
Probably adulterated with buzzard feet anyway.

I know it’s next to impossible to avoid Chinese foodstuffs but I won’t buy any edible products that I can identify as Chinese.

Avian collagen is used in skin care products and is being used in experimentation to help burn victims...

It is actually quite a remarkable product...

When you go to a movie theater in Asia it is not a bucket of popcorn but a bucket of chicken feet.
There is a small bit of meat to chew on as you watch the movie.
Barbequed if I remember correctly, not bad!

A healthy alternative to fake butter soaked popcorn.

You may also try the flavored watermelon seeds.

Just about every toddler in the US drinks apple juice from China every day.

I’ve been waiting for a few years now of news reports stating how a couple of million kids has been poison by these people.

The sludge that is brewed, then reconstituted and called "chicken" should curdle your hair. If I can't identify it as breast meat I won't eat it, there's really no way to know what's in there. It's as nauseating as those dyed red hotdogs with multiple species of meat byproducts. The sheer stupidity and the disdain for those who eat this stuff is just appalling. The only hotdogs I'll eat are Kosher. The whole nightmare makes me understand the rigor and strictness of Leviticus, that's for sure.

You've never been to a real Chinese restaurant that does serious dim sum, have you? If you had, you'd have seen these on the carts:

I’m with you, on all points.

At the price being charged for ground beef, I would rather grind my own from whole muscle cuts. Lord knows what is in those plastic tubes called *hamburger*.

But, I grew up with whole, butchered chickens, only minus the feathers and the head. My mother would gut them and we would fight over who got the single large unlayed egg, which would be poached on a slotted spoon in the water already boiling for the soup. It tasted halfway between egg and chicken. The skin rolled down over the chicken legs like a stocking and the legs added body to the broth, from all the collegen.

THE best chicken soup, ever.

I think you forgot the roasted rooster heads. I picked one up once, not recognizing it, at a Lion Dance my class did for a local restaurant. My classmates got a great kick out of making me queasy. They told me that sea cucumbers were veggies, then told me the truth after I ate one.

Americans are eating chicken breasts, Chinese prefer feets, Russians are eating legs.
Exporting that is a good way to utilize all the chicken to get profit.
