I live somewhat near the Spam Museum in Austin, MN and its HUGE... and funny to go to
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.
