Had a milkshake that was actually a milkshake, there, way way back.
Sign read: "Over 20 million burgers sold".
What's it now? "Over 100 billion sold" ? The shakes are too thick now.

Great video, thanks Casey.

I completely agree about the onion nuggets. Unless you have sharp teeth, rings make onion strings, leaving the breading.

Our Saimin can come fully loaded or simple with very few goodies in it. We like ours with as many ad-ins as I have available.

Our Saimin is different from Ramen noodles, their fat and a bit of a chew to them, very satisfying ... dang it NOW I want Saimin!
If I don't have any Char Siu to put in the bowl, then it's Spam.

Well, now I know what to do with that can of Spam that I bought on a whim thatís been sitting in my cupboard for probably six months. Thanks, Kgirl!

This throws a whole new light on McDonalds. In the UK they do nothing but boring burgers - different names but roughly the same.

I found this old article interesting as well:

We had Taro Pie for a while too, but I don't think it went over well in Hawaii

Spam is in just about everything, everywhere in Hawaii
Of course it is. WWII limited the import of meat from the mainland. And Spam was served to our servicemen. Any leftover, the natives got and loved it.

I don't understand why some folks constantly knock a food that fed hungry American citizens in a time of need. And I am referring to the Hawaiians who were very happy to have it.

Addie, its was really all of those canned meats that we got and that was it for meat, really. Unless you had the ways and means to produce your own.
For instance:
Vienna Sausage
Conned Beef
Chipped Beef
those nasty "whole canned hams"-my mother bought that alot of those
oh yeah, whole canned chickens-she loved that one too

I do mostly like canned meats, other than the spread types, but so high in sodium! A little goes a long way, maybe that's why we used so much of it back when... mix up some Spam and veg in a stir fry, so many other appilcations!

It came across "the pond" too. Not sure if it was part of "Lend-Lease", courtesy of Mr Roosevelt, or if we'd had it before the war. Quite popular (and still is, I think) over here both in war and in peace.

My mother was rather fond of it but Dad and I weren't keen. I think Dad had had too much of it while in the army and, later, after it was a choice not a necessity, I couldn't stand the texture. Right up to Mum becoming infirm she always had a tin of Spam in the cupboard "for emergencies". ("Emergencies" covered all situations from an unexpected visitor on laundry day to a Martian invasion.)

Mcds do a kiwi burger, with egg and Beetroot. I like them.
