Yay or Nay? Would you eat a “My Little Pony” Burger?
First off, we here at Brony.com would like to extend our sincere apologies if this article offends anyone. We’re not exactly sure how we feel about this as of the posting of this article ourselves.
There’s a “My Little Pony’ burger that has gained some traction in Europe. And yes, this burger is made of horse meat. In the Europe the approach to animal consumption is very different than it is here in the United States. In the USA we waste parts of the animals we use, whereas in Europe for many, no part of the animal goes to waste. The My Little Pony burger has popped up in a new restaurant called Food Guerilla. The burger is made from aged ponies from the amusement park called “Slagharen.”
Although there are many how many be offended by reading this article, it is important to note that sometimes elderly animals are considered disposable and destined for slaughter because they are deemed useless. But in recent years there has been a movement in the Europe to use hose meat for exotic dishes as the meat is very lean and healthier than beef, some argue.
The goal here is to not waste food, and some say that horse meet is not only more healthy than beef, but in fact it tastes better as well–with a wild game flavor much in the same manner that animals that are commonly eaten in the United States like Wild Boar or Elk have when consumed.
