The museum had a theater where they showed a short movie about the history of Spam. While showing it, they delivered pieces of Spam to the audience. I looked at the platter, realized that I had never tasted Spam in my life so took one. I will not eat Spam again.

But the museum was great. I bought a pair of flipflops with "SPAM" indented on the soles so that when you walk in them, it leaves the word SPAM in the sand.

Hawaii has had the largest consumption per capita in the world. The theory is that its a cheap source of meat, as its expensive to ship meat to that state.

It's eons since I ate Spam, usually (as others have noted) sliced and fried like bacon, served with eggs or in a sandwich. Certainly not gourmet fare, but as I recall it was tasty and satisfying, and while it's not something I'd go out of my way for, I wouldn't refuse it, either.

To those who don't like it....the way the economy is heading, you may have the only choice of "meat" - regular meats will be only for the rich.....lol

In that case, I'll be a vegetarian!

I actually don't mind Spam. It's not my favorite thing to eat, but it's OK. I actually just made some for DH not too long ago. He'd never had it (his family had a lot more money than mine did ). He thought it was OK, too. Forest, however, LOOOOVED it. That silly cat crawled all over me until I gave him a piece then sat in the middle of the floor and yowled for more.

OMG! When selecting something to eat when on a fishing trip, I go with the little weenies in can. My family likes Spam and I think it is disgusting.

I don't know if you've ever heard of John Boy and Billy (local radio people who are now national radio people), but they used to do a skit about Spam Animals.

I had never had it untill a few months ago. DH grew up with it and had it alot when he lived in Hawaii. I liked it, I did find it to be a bit on the salty side. I did see that they make a low sodium variety so I will have to try that.

We just fried it up in a pan and had it with eggs for breakfast. DH says its good on the grill too. He also said he remembers in Hawaii that they would use it on pizza instead of Canadian Bacon. I plan on making it soon. A "true" Hawaii pizza, Spam, pineapple, red onion and jalapenos, I think it will be pretty good.

OK, I just have to say that there is no way Spam could be a replacement for Canadian Bacon!

Meowers - if you come to our house in the summer, we'll make our salad with Spam and you can try it then

never had it and never will. i can't eat hot dogs, bologna, chipped beef, sausage and hamburgers either. anything that's been chopped up and put back together i don't eat. if i want hamburger i'll pick out a steak and have the butcher put it through the grinder for me.
i eat fish a lot, especially salmon

Wow, I thought everyone had at least tried Spam once.
We had it a lot when I was growing up (5 kids and not a lot of money).
DH & I had it for supper just a couple of days ago---sliced, fried, and delicious. It's basically just ham with seasonings.
I also had no idea of all the different dishes you could make with Spam until I read the other posts.
