What The Walking Dead's Zombies Are Actually Eating

On TV's The Walking Dead, no punches are pulled when it comes to showing the zombies ringing the dinner bell. There is gnashing, and gnawing, and the swallowing of flesh. But did you ever wonder just what kind of flesh it was?

Turns out all those zombie actors/extras get a pretty sweet deal, because the chunks of meat they're eating isn't some generic TV prop, it's ham. Sweet, delicious ham. In earlier seasons, the ham was covered in BBQ sauce, but it turns out the vinegar was messing up their zombie make-up, so now it's "just" ham.

WARNING: If you're not up-to-date on the show, you'll probably want to avoid the video below. One of the zombies pictured is a spoiler.
