That is, if you celebrate Christmas at all...
The folks at edible.com are selling Reindeer Pate for those interested in getting a taste of Comet, Cupid, or those unfortunate reindeer that didn't make Santa's cut.
Well, at least, they were. The delicacy was so popular, they sold out quicker than expected. At £15 for 190 grams (a little over 6oz), this spendy snack intrigued a lot of people.
And, of course, any popular-yet-odd food is going to attract a handful of protesters as well. VIVA, the Vegetarians International Voice for Animals, are 'politely' protesting the sellers of this product, claiming inhumane treatment of the reindeer, as well as stressful conditions for the poor animals.
I have to admit, there's nothing more stressful than being killed...

1 - I'm intrigued. People are buying this left and right, and it may in fact be tasty.
2 - The shock factor. I'd love to have this on the Christmas table as a fun conversation piece. I can see my mom in law going "This is DELICIOUS... what is it??" I smirk, say "Blitzen," and watch her eyes slowly widen...
Besides, I've been on Santa's Naughty list since 1987. If I'm going to be one of the bad boys, I better live up to my persona, right??
What do you think of this product? Is this a bad exploitation of the holidays, or just a sign of the times? Nothing is sacred in the 21st century, and munching on Rudolph's kin is no exception.
