I know many people think SPAM is gross, but I love it! It's tasty and it's easy (by itself, or as an added ingredient in dishes.) My only issue with it is the sodium content. There's 3480 mg in one can... of SPAM Lite-- 25% less sodium than the regular kind!

Spam is awesome..to me. I really enjoy it..i like savory stuff, so the saltiness works in my favor. Spam also comes in many flavors..such as light sodium, garlic, macadamian.etc..
I know a lot of people don't like spam..but I think the arguments are pretty poor. Most people tell me that they think it's nasty..but seriously? A hot dog is okay? I feel like the hot dog is the American version of spam..just a bunch of non-good parts mashed together to give you something that's a meat product.
Spam can be used in many dishes. I eat Spam moreso when I'm in Hawaii..spam musubi, mainly..but it's in a lot of other dishes that are good. I've seen it in fried rice..by itself fried up..with eggs..lots of good dishes. I just don't understand why so many people are against it..it's just another salty meat..it's about taste..not health..not quality..just easy good salty meat =)..

My son loves Spam. I'm not a big fan. It isn't nasty, but not something I can think "boy I cold go for a big slab of Spam". My ex loved it...maybe that's why it turns my stomach. ;-). If I do eat it, its pan fried with a little mustard on it.
Spoiler alert...What follows may be a little disgusting.
To follow up on Nimrod's thought...I don't do hotdogs much unless they are Nathan's Famous, and the skinless ones at that. It is the only hotdog that I can eat and if I burp 6 hours later, it doesn't taste like I JUST ate it. Something about a product that sits in stomach acid for extended periods of time and seems unaltered by it just gives me the willies. Besides bananas. They kinds do the same thing...but aren't heavily processed foods.
Hmm...It's very interesting that the meat was supplied by the government and canned by Hormel. My mom always had tons of cans of SPAM and sardines around the house in case of an extreme emergency. Pretty sure she still has the same ones somewhere in the pantry. Surprisingly, we never were in a desperate enough situation to live solely on SPAM. I've had it before and it doesn't taste awful, the thought of it is pretty disgusting though...
