Our supermarket only carries two variaties: SPAM, and Low Salt SPAM.

The Malaysian inlaws eat SPAM, or rice with SPAM, or fried rice with SPAM , as the mood hits them.

That store page didn't have every flavor. The video clip I posted showed macadamia flavored SPAM on the shelves.

Must not be too civilized because he said he couldn't find the Chorizo SPAM where he is.

When I ordered the variety case, it didn't take too long to get here. But then I'm only one state over from the home state of SPAM.

Watch it again, it's actually SPAM-flavored macadamia nuts, not the other way around.

Also, the Armour Meat rotten meat scandal of 1898-9 was a direct influence on Upton Sinclair's novel The Jungle.
I think you mean Treet. It's still around.

I think I only ate Spam one time growing up, most likely while camping, but I tried it (again) a few years ago, and I realized that a fried Spam, egg and cheese on toasted rye with mustard wasn't half bad. So I'll make it once or twice a year for brunch at home on a weekend.

Never with baked beans. Y'all be trifling.

I once had a coworker who was raised in Hawaii and I asked her if Spam was as popular there as I'd heard. Most emphatically she said it was.

Just last week, on "Delicious Destinations", with Andrew Zimmern, the show was in Hawaii and they really did feature places that had Spam dishes.

Spam! I like Spam. The supermarket nearest me carries the widest range of Spam varieties of any supermarket I've ever been in. My personal favorite is the Spam with bacon, closely followed by the hickory smoked and the classic Spam.

The "healthy" varieties (Lite, low sodium and turkey) are edible but not enticing. Spam with garlic is OK if you like garlic. Teriyaki Spam I found to border on disgusting, would not eat again. Spam with Cheese was OK but added more grease than cheese flavor, IMHO.

Haven't tried chorizo, hot & spicy or Spam with jalapenos, since I'm on Team "Pain is Not a Flavor" when it comes to spicy food.

The wife yesterday sliced up and fried up some jalapeno Spam. We put it in soft taco shells with mushrooms. Our nod Cinco de Mayo the day before.

Last time I visited Hawaii was 18 years ago, and I clearly remember enjoying "Hawaiian Breakfast" at McDonald's: rice, sausage, egg and fried Spam
