What's with the different color labels? All I ever had was one flavor - spam.

A recipe for every can-!!

There are many flavors, and bacon flavor has the lowest sodium content that I've seen.

It may not be true, but I have read that the popularity of SPAM in the Pacific islands is due to tasting somewhat like long pig.

Look closely on the left and you'll see Oreos.

Spam costs too much. Whatever happened to cheap meats?

The "cheap meats"
sit in Capitol seats.
They don't call it sausage-making
for nothing.

Hey, try living in Minnesota. We have deep-fried Spam curds at the state fair. We have the Spam museum in Austin, which is touting its soon-to-be-unveiled upgrade. Go to their website and one can order all kinds of Spam toys and memorabilia.

But one will not find more than a tiny fraction of that display in any grocery store here.

I really like Spam and eat it fairly often, but stay away from the chorizo flavored offering. It's god-awful. Even my dogs flipped me off when I tried to give it to them. I don't know how the Spam folks could have missed the mark so badly.

I'm thinking of Spam, Spam, Spam, eggs and Spam.

Whoops- didn't see the other BillH up top there- pardon me. I can change to my other screen name- Hotrodelectric.

I've read Spam became a staple in HI during
WWII. My Army son there eats a mesubi made of rice and Spam rolled inside seaweed. Been to HI 5 times but won't touch it. Too many bad memories of Spam as a kid in Omaha in the 1950s.

If this is true how did the post appear in the first place?

Every language seems to have an expression of "no accounting for taste".
Spam, the most decisive food? Or maybe deep fried crickets, popular in Thailand.
