We can now take Spam into the BWCA in the form of Spam SIngles, slabs wrapped in foil pouches. Our prayers have been answered!
google spam and you will never eat it
how could you even put that sh#t in your body?
Only time I’ve eaten it…
…was on my last trip into the swamp. first time, maybe be the last, but it was suprisingly not terrible and actually pretty good…i’m embarrassed to say it, but what the hell? who knows me here?
Now only if…
If they come out with a ready-made fried egg single, I can probably manage to successfully prepare a spam, egg & cheese breakfast sandwich! I am SO looking forward to having something other than oatmeal or power bars for breakfast!! WOOHOOO!
-rs (I can boil water, but not much else)
I packed some on my Lake Nipigon trip, but couldn’t get past the smell!
Edible if fried REAL CRISP.
Real men eat SPAM !!!
the famous travel writer, mentions in this book about Paddling islands in the south Pacific that spam is very poplular among the natives there because its taste is very close to that of "long pig", an item that has been a traditional favorite in many of those islands for centuries.
I like it
I bought one of the singles to try and my wife was just grossed out by it.
I ate it a lot as a kid. My mom told us it was ham. Her scalopped potatoes alway had spam. When I left home and went to college I had scalopped potatoes at the food service and nearly spit them out. “What is this meat in it!?” My room mate said, “Ham.” I said, “Well, it’s not like any ham I ever had!!!” … and I was right.
Must be a generation thing
My mom was nothing short of a gourmet cook, though I had no clue at the time. Yet she too used Spam in all sorts of ways, including - if I’m not mistaken - in scalloped potatoes. I think the stuff was pretty popular well before my time, and she probably learned to use it then. Even when I was a kid, nobody made jokes about it like they do now. I think I ate some when I was in college, and I can hardly remember what it was like. Hmmm. Should I refresh my memory?

Important Spam link
You might want to turn down the volume if you are a cubicle dweller. Play teh Monty Python Spam game!
For those Spam haters, what’s worse?
Spam or “Potted Meat”?
My dad used to love a can of that for lunch, spread on a cracker with his car keys, of course. He’s 80 now and still relatively healthy, so who can argue . . . .
Why would you want unsolicited junk e-mail in individual foil pouches???
Sorry, couldn’t resist.
Sounds like a bad Monty Python skit.
It’s easier to take tghe whole can and jsut eat the whole can in one sitting.
If you’re going to do yourself in it might as well be all at once.
I use to work at SPAM in my younger days and I know what they put into a can.
You’re better off eating the can.
Didn’t the guy who paddled
from California to Hawaii (Ned Gilette?) pretty much live on Spam during the trip?
Foreskins . . .
. . . are nutritious.
But are not found in Spam.
Walter, if we ever spend an evening around a campfire I have a great foreskin joke to tell you!
I’m . . .
. . . disappointed. I alway thought that was what gave Spam and hotdogs their great taste.
