I see you are not up to speed then.

WHO€™s dubious claims on processed meats - Daily News Egypt

(Hence why I said moderation!)

Oh yes, I forgot about that. There isn't really any new information there.

My point is simply that Taylor ham and Spam are not much different from any other processed meat.

OH MY!
I very first time my husband took me "Back East" and I had Taylor's Ham
I said, "MMM, it's like Spam" OH MY, wrong thing to say.
I brought some home and made a Sunday Brunch and invited my parents.
My Dad said, "MMM, it's like Spam".
My husband was fit to be tied!

Apparently in some rural areas of the great plains (and maybe elsewhere, but this is where I'm familiar with it), bologna (baloney) goes incognito too. My wife grew up calling it "minced ham" here in NE Colorado, as did her girlfriend from SW Iowa. The first time she said that she was going to get minced ham at the store, I thought she was talking about something like Underwood deviled ham. It was a surprise to me when she came home with plain old baloney. I gave her a look and said "Oh, you meant baloney!" She said (semi tongue in cheek) "No, minced ham."

Her father still calls it minced ham - for 92 years he always has and he isn't going to change now.

Buy it cin!! Chorizo Spam is far superior!! I've been using it since it recently came on the market. Great flavor, and consistent texture.
It sure makes killer Mexican breakfast burritos!

Shoot, we had a coupon for two cans of Spam and I was planning on trying a different flavor, but I wasn't feeling well so DH did the shopping and just got the original. Maybe next time.
