    I have Spam about twice a year when I want some for some weird, unknown reason. The only way I like it is thin cut and fried crispy on bread with lots of mayonnaise. I typically only buy the jalapeno Spam.

    I haven’t eaten Spam since my Navy days back in the 70s.

    This thread is just crying out for a SPAMalama Ding Dong:

    2 slices of SPAM
    Marshmallows
    Chocolate sauce

    Put the marshmallows between the slices of spam and cover with chocolate sauce.

    A SPAMarama festival winner!

    I hate the stuff. We had it sliced and fried nice and black every Wednesday for supper when I was a kid. Sometimes to be gourmet about it, Mom would brush some brown sugar and mustard over the top. Ugh. I'm really making a face right now and I can't help it.

    When I think of Spam, I think of bomb shelter food. After The Day After, the radio station did a hilarious imitation of a Connecticut diva whining about the Spam as the family sat in the bomb shelter after a nuclear shelling. LOL

    Close....I think of it as survival food.
    As in I'm in the woods hunting or fishing for a few days and it doesnt need refrigeration.
    Would I prefer a Prime dry aged ribeye? Of course,but that isnt an option when hitting the boonies.

    We used to go on canoe trips and carried a portable grill and grilled steaks in the middle of nowhere. Carried them in an ice chest that used frozen gallon water jugs. When it melted we had ice water.

    No, but peanut butter is. And jerky.
    I gotta stay out of this thread. My face is all scrunching up again.

    I used to take cans of the low sodium spam on backpacking trips to supplement freeze dried meals. I hadn't had it in years, but tried it again not too long ago. Again, the low sodium variety, but I couldn't eat it as that even tasted way to salty to me.
