No, not SPAM that you get in your email. I'm talking Spam, the pseudo-food.
I have a friend who is stockpiling the stuff as part of his when TSHTF preparation. I took a look at it today at the store. They had 3 varieties: Original Spam, Turkey Spam, and Bacon Spam. They also had "low sodium" Spam but I ruled it out without further thought.
Has anyone tried these? My friend says that, as long as you don't eat them more than 2 meals at a time, they aren't half bad. He especially likes the regular, original Spam. There was an old woman at the store who bought several cans at the same time I was looking. Says she doesn't buy it because of the low cost....she buys it because she genuinely likes the taste.
Shelf life from the info on the tin is about 2.5 years but I read a discussion on another forum in which several guys said they had kept it up to 4 years and eaten it with no problem. The label says it has absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever....it's just filler food.
So.....it's obviously not a Porterhouse from your favorite restaurant but....is this stuff tolerable in times of desperation? I know.....the easy way is to just open up a can and find out the hard way. Have any of you eaten this stuff recently?
i love it. my wife gets a coupon so i get 3 cans every two weeks. try the jalapeno kind or the hot and spicy. i love to cut it thin and fry it with a little olive oil.

Spam! Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm................Goooooooooooooooooo ooooddddddddddddddddddddddd!
I like spam! It tastes good cooked over a campfire. Spam and eggs is awesome.
I wouldn't buy it for extremely long-term storage, but it has a shelf life of a few years.

HAHAHAHA its hilarious you posted this, Longstreet! I just had some yesterday!
My GF and I were shopping for supplies because of WINTER TEMPEST 2 that was about to hit the Southeast and we saw the spam. We laughed about it and ended up getting a can as a joke. I sliced it up and cooked it in a cast iron skillet and my GF made a homemade honey mustard that I slathered all over it. We ate it on toast with mac n cheese. We got the regular variety and it tasted kinda like bacon? It wasn't "good" but it wasn't bad either. Kinda fun I guess with all the snow and ice.
I understand its considered a delicacy in Hawaii and the Polynesian islands.

I like the original. I personally don't like the taste of the other variations. Does taste good fried in olive oil or baked. I don't like it "raw". Cut it up, fry it and mix it in with scrambled eggs tastes pretty good also. Try It, You'll Like It.
I love the stuff, I have a bunch of it stored away. I never tried the flavored kind, and canned ham is similar, got some of that too along with salmon and tuna. Good stuff for the emergency scenario. I like mine fried to a dark brown.
I like it raw, i like it in salads, I like it fried. I like it on bread, It is pork shoulders, basically ham that has been run through a meat grinder. It is good for you.
