|The ThinkGeek thing was an April Fool's joke which angered the National Pork Board (!!!) since they used the expression "the other white meat."
And if you're too pressed for time to go to the website, here is the text:
Pâté is passé. Unicorn - the new white meat.
Excellent source of sparkles! (Note: the purported meat does, indeed, have sparkles.)
Unicorns, as we all know, frolic all over the world, pooping rainbows and marshmallows wherever they go. What you don't know is that when unicorns reach the end of their lifespan, they are drawn to County Meath, Ireland. The Sisters at Radiant Farms have dedicated their lives to nursing these elegant creatures through their final days. Taking a cue from the Kobe beef industry, they massage each unicorn's coat with Guinness daily and fatten them on a diet comprised entirely of candy corn.
As the unicorn ages, its meat becomes fatty and marbled and the living bone in the horn loses density in a process much like osteoporosis. The horn's outer layer of keratin begins to develop a flavor very similar to candied almonds. Blending the crushed unicorn horn into the meat adds delightful, crispy flavor notes in each bite. We are confident you will find a world of bewilderment in every mouthful of scrumptious unicorn meat.
Savory Unicorn & Heirloom Tomato Bruchetta Recipe
•14 ounce can of Unicorn Meat
•6 or 7 ripe plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs)
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
•1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
•6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped.
•Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
•1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread
•1/4 cup olive oil
Chop the tomatoes and mix with garlic, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and basil leaves. Toss well. Slice baguettes on the diagonal about 1/2" thick. Brush each slice with olive oil and add a full rounded tablespoon of Unicorn Meat, spreading over each piece. Toast in a 450 degree directly on over rock for 5-6 minutes. Do a little funky dance by yourself until it's toasted. Serve with tomato mixture and some flaming Absinthe.
