Something I May Never Understand

This is something I have never understood, and maybe YOU understand it and can explain.

Why do they, once they take the giblets out of a chicken and package them in plastic, then put them back inside the chicken?

Does anyone know why? Is it to save space? Would it really be that hard to put them next to the chicken? They would look very disgusting, though.

I have no idea. What do you think?

  1. I believe it’s so that you can get to them and the neck etc. in order to make gravy
    and add it to the scrapings from the bottom of the pan in which you baked the chicken. At least that is what one does who doesn’t want to go to the supermarket and buy a bottle of chicken gravy.

  2. To keep them both protected from being crushed and to keep them as cool as possible. Organs are the first to taste funky if not treated right so the cavity of the bird is a good ‘hard case’ as well as being the place that stays frozen the longest.

    It’s also convenient, like packing your socks in your shoes when you fly. :)

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
