Carol, Hormel has come out with a whole new line of Spam. I will occasionally buy the Lite. Less salt and seasoning. I almost bought some yesterday when I was shopping. But the cans were on the top shelf and I didn't feel like stretching.

Fry up some thin sliced Spam, add some Velveeta, and grill on Wonder type bread in butter.

Pure comfort food.



Just don't eat it everyday.

Then you're not a food snob.


I simply believe folks should eat what they enjoy and not sweat the small stuff.

Excess of anything could cause problems but enjoyment of life is what really matters.

Too many times products are demonized yet there is nothing wrong with them.

Eat them to excess and you might suffer health problems.

No magic formula as far as I'm concerned.

True. Nothing in excess. Think of how eggs, coffee and wine have been demonized as well, and are now recommended.

And I can't imagine life without bacon, but I'm just not gonna eat it everyday.

Cubed 25% less salt Spam, par-boiled potato chunks, green peppers and oinions, frid up till golden and top with egg...that's about a once a month breakfast for us.

Bacon makes the world go around.

Life without bacon is not worth living.

I haven't had bacon for awhile but let me assure every speck of bacon has been used to flavor the dishes I've made since I last fried bacon.

(Still waiting at the PO for my SASSC from Pac.)



PF. If the low salt Spam fits the bill then go for it.

Spam is spam and sausage is sausage, and never the twain shall meat! LOL!
I couldn't agree more! To get that gel in your mouth is like invisioning an eyeball or something, just plain nastey!

It's the texture! Utterly revolting! (The flavour isn't so bad).
