Dammit, where was this BEFORE I became allergic to antibiotics found in most pork? I cannot catch a break.

It can if the can is big enough. Ask Palama as I hear Hawaii has a larger selection of Spam varieties than anywhere else. They even have a place there that is famous for its spamburger.

The Hawaiians eat more spam per capita than any other place on earth. I have 4 or 5 variants in the pantry. I love it fried crispy for my breakfast sandwiches. Or just a spamwich. Beer

Amazon and Walmart online carry a ton of different flavors.

That pumpkin spice abomination need not apply though. d'oh!

Afaik, it’s mainly attributed to WWII and the long shelf life the cans had. Plus, at one point in time, it was rather inexpensive so it easily became a staple in local homes.

Thank you. Not a fan of pumpkin spice... or pumpkin for that matter.

Love me some spam, though.

Cuz they ripen during months when it's too hot to use the oven but they'll keep until fall...

I've got 4 sitting in my dining room that were harvested in June... Can't do anything with em till fall...

#7 I hear you, but I cannot eat it any more. Not until they take antibiotics out of the pork supply (Grrrrrr).

#9 Do you have any albatross-flavored?

#13 Because that's the only time I can get her to come over when the wife is away at her son's house.


Oh no he di'nt!

As a lawyer, I can definitively say that pumpkin spice is not a "protected group" for discrimination laws, in contrast with, say, race, religion, sex, etc. Ergo, "Pumpkin Spice Discrimination" is either (a) a non sequitur, and/or (b) a sign of good taste. It is not, however, legally actionable. It ranks somewhere between "discriminating" by not wanting your neighbor's Saint Bernard to crap on your lawn and "discriminating" by refusing to listen to the musical stylings of Miley Cyrus.

Now if they could make a good dairy-free gluten-free pumpkin spice Cinnabon...oh hell, I might as well talk about what I'll do when I win the lottery or marry Jennifer Aniston.

Could be. If so, Pumpkin Spam would be wholly appropriate....


I read once that Spam is so popular in Micronesia because it tastes more like humans than other meats....something in the cannibalistic genes or something is fond of the flavor
