    Absolutely--from time to time that's good stuff although I usually have to wait until Mrs. JV is off on a work trip for a few days, lest she walk into the kitchen and say something like "You're not actually going to eat THAT, are you?"

    Only the Turkey Spam. I won't touch the regular stuff or the knock off brands.

    You have standards and expectations for spam? Did I hear that correctly?

    I love the stuff... but maybe that's because I'm a poor college student and I can't afford any of that fancy real stuff :(

    Though marginal, Turkey spam is a little more heathy for you, as it's made with turkey breast, rather than cholesterol laden pork. ;)

    According to the nutrition data I found, a serving of regular spam has 40mg of cholesterol, and a serving of turkey spam still has 30mg of cholesterol. Perhaps you need to move to vegan spam? ;)

    (Sorry, adjusted the numbers to try to use the same site for both kinds of spam)

    Vegan lunch meat does actually taste better than spam, though! :eek: Not nearly as cheap, though.... :rolleyes:

    vegan. no, not quite as good. I have had my share of Boco Burgers and so forth, not as tasty unless you pour on the ketchup and so forth. ;)

    Someone once told me that they went "bobbing for Spam" once and that it was a blast. The next time a random game event came up I decided I would provide the water and spam. Turns out it doesn't float. Bust.

    I've never forgiven Spam. :mad:

    Nope I don't like it :)

    A couple of years ago I went out for a big hike over the moors, only they were shut off due to some fire hazard (heatwave season). Thought I'd treat myself instead to a Burger from one of them caravan/cafe/thingies. A burger which was a slice of spam and a Tesco cheese slice on an oven bottom muffin. Not too bad snack food but for £3... Urgh.

    according to this article, spam :eek: is becoming popular once again!

    personally, i find spam to be rather gross. (the texture is just nasty!) besides being "internet" related, it also reminds me of the classic monty python skit.

    :p

    The best way to make spam tolerable, is to fry it, pat dry, and eat it like you would bacon.

    Never liked Spam much in my childhood household.

    We preferred to step it up a bit with Prem. :D
