The food product that is
I watched a video about this on CNN just before you posted...
Kinda made me want some fried Spam
Hm, I have never actually tried SPAM. I wonder what it tastes like ?
SPAM is an "aquired taste", hehehehe...
I've worked at their HQ, in Austin, MN and lemme tell'ya, they're proud of it! It was made as a war-time staple but now a delicacy... Either you get it, or you don't...
I tried it once when my college roommate bought some. I gagged and spit it out. <shudder>
I'm told it tastes a lot like canned ham... but I'm not all that sure. I know I really like canned ham for no particular reason.
Yeeesh, I don't think I want to try it after taking a look at their packaging again.
you mainland people dont appreciate the awesomeness of SPAM here in Hawaii! xD
I can go for some spam musubi any day. In fact, let me go to Walmart and buy some right now...
Raw Spam is an acquired taste.
But fried up in some butter is an entirely different matter.
Had many a fried Spam sandwich in my youth. We were skint, to put it mildly.
An afterthought. Swift's Prem was the cream-de-la-cream of luncheon meats for us.
Years ago I was a YMCA camp counselor and when camping we would make "Boxcars"
A small slab of SPAM fried up with some brown sugar and a 1/2 slice of cheese on top...
Mmmm....I still make them occasionally, but my wife hates them so it is a rare treat...
Last time I had Spam - I was in the woods in Maine for 3 weeks. (well over a decade ago)
I'd like to keep it that way.
Does anyone else think of cat food when they open the can and get that first whiff?
Be upwind when you open it.
SPAM is good. Was just at the store and picked some up. Didn't know you can buy it in individually sliced packages! How cool!
As if a gelatinous mass of protein was hard to cut in the first pace.
Does anyone else's cat look at them like they're an @$$hole when they pop open a can of Spam, and then cook it. (the cat thinking, WTF?!? that's MY food!)
Yes, Especially when you don't give the cat any. And the cat won't leave you alone until it is gone.
Protein is protein.
The time to satiate your more delicate tastes might be in remission.
Hahaha, I don't make it enough for our cats to know what it is. I can tell you that tuna drives them crazy! And my wife is a push over for her cats, so if she's making the tuna sammich (Yep, now I'm stealin' that term as well ) the cats get more of the tuna then my sammich.
Haha interesting eh?
When times get tough, the cats get TCD.
My family is from Hawaii so I grew up on spam, egg and rice for breakfast. LOL, I'm surprised I turned out so petite as I did considering I ate spam so much as a kid.
I rarely eat it now but the smell of fried spam brings back memories.
Hahaha, let's hope times don't get that tough!
I used to work at Macromedia on a development team. Whenever we were working on a new product, we referred to it by a code name in all communications to prevent word of an unreleased product leaking to the outside world. One time we chose "Spam" as a code name for one of our products (I think it was a version of FreeHand).
We called Hormel and told them that we were using "Spam" as a code name for one of our products and asked if they could send some fun Spam-related stuff for our development team. They sent a ton of stuff. Spam t-shirts, Spam toys, Spam stickers, you name it. I think they even sent us a bunch of Spam. It was wacky, Spammy fun.
I have 12 cans of low-sodium SPAM sitting in my cupboard right now. It tastes really good diced up and stir-fried with green onions over rice.
SPAM is eaten by 3 types of people:
- University Students
But with that said I have on occasions had some SPAM.... mmmmm SPAM
