My father had an irrational love for canned Spam. He loved everything about it. He loved the little key that you used to open the can. He loved the way that a thick piece of Spam would fry up with eggs in the morning. Around our house there was nothing better than finding out that Dad made our lunches (fried spam with cheese and ketchup sammiches) or supper (chuck wagon diner with fried spam). I would never eat raw Spam and I still puke every time I see the jelly that is attached to it when it's taken out of the can. With that said you still can't deny that fried Spam is a delicacy of the highest order. Well it's a delicacy to us simple folks.
Despite looking like a slimy pink mutant in a can, SPAM has all of the ingredients you need to stay alive — calories, protein and water content. And with 33% of the average man’s daily sodium allowance in each can, it’ll be a cold day in hell before the “meat” spoils.
