It looks absolutely gross!

No I have not ever tried it and do not intend to -and I don't often say YUK to food, but this one, I say YUK to.....

I like almost all foods but this looks like utter rubbish food and always has -Monty Python did a skit on it even, or a song.

forgot to say, while looking for a picture of spam on computer, I got several of the eating type spam which made me think of the question!

Sounds to me like you need adware or spyware of anti-virus software, Finy.

Find this question clever after the previous question about how much internet spam one gets!....think I have tasted it years ago., certainly wouldn't now being more aware of preservatives and other crap in this type of food.

No way! But my husband eats it. Just the smell of it makes me feel sick and then there's that disgusting jelly stuff! Eeewwww!
I am proud to say that I have never eaten Spam before. I'm also proud to say I have never eaten McDonald's beef. There are just some things that should not be ingested.
LOL Damien -I dont think you are trying to be funny, but it is! McDonalds are always advertising about how good their beef is!

I have eaten SPAM. Not the best tasting product that's for sure!
I have never tried it - it doesn't look very appealing to me

I eat it 2-3 times a year.
I do on those occasions like it, and if ever there was a food that you can take with you, and you were starving! it would be the one.
Spam is made I believe for people who hike, camp and need something that will feed them....It is not something I would eat every week or even once a month.
My friend made a wonderful fresh spinach and spam slice, for afternoon tea.
No baking, and it was very nice indeed.
I have asked her for the last 25 years to tell me, 'how' to make it.
She won't tell me....I really was very nice, she did use a lot of raw spinach of course.
It has it's place on the Supermarket shelf, and not something one should 'knock' unless you have given it a go!

It came about in 1937...and was used for the men in the WWII.
Hawaii has the highest use of this product, than the mainland of the States.

As I said before, it has it's place:Maybe not in our kitchen as other foods, but
it has fed men at war, and if push came to shove I and my family had only
Spam, we sure would eat it.
Yes! I love the stuff. When I was pregnant with my first child I had huge cravings for it. I only buy it occasionally and cook it in a frying pan with fried eggs on the side. Delicious!
good for you :) nice to hear.

Spam is ok. I don't eat it anymore, but I used to as a kid. Mum would fry it up with eggs or put it in a potato salad.

I believe that we were given this at a Brownie and guide camp which I attended when I was 9 or 10.It was so long ago that all I really remember about it was that the leaders actually b-b-q'd it so we did not have to eat the awful jelly which is such a major turn off! I would not even feed this stuff to my dogs!!!
I ate it a few times as a kid. It was ok, and I think like thriftyfrugalfun I might have craved it as some point during a pregnancy (not as a regular thing, but once or twice). It doesn't appeal to me, but if I needed a protein source and that's all I could get, I'd eat it.
not anymore, better choices I can afford today
I though SPAM was a type of ham or pork offal creation. Bully beef was a type of beef or beef offal creation.
Bully beef (or tinned corned beef) did feed men during the war (WW2) and most returned soldiers would never go near it again.
In Australia we didn't and don't need to return to eating that cheap source of protein. In the USA, home of cattle ranches and cowboys, they can't afford to buy the meat cuts that we can in Australia, so they still probably employ those type of tinned products to make the dollars go around for a week or fortnight and certainly I would expect that you would find room for both Spam and Bully Beef in some homes in the UK.
Me, I'm just please that this week shopping in Melbourne I could buy a leg of lamb to roast for $19 for 2.2 kilos and not the $100 leg of lamb Joe Hockey had forecast. Amazing!

As a child, due to financial necessity. Thankfully not since I became an adult.
When camping as a kid, but not since. Didn't really like it.
I have only eaten spam when it is heavily reduced in price.
I have always regretted buying it.
The low fat style seemed tastier than the full fat or maybe I was extra hungry.

No no no and no it is.
SP iced h AM . . It's more fat than ham but it was a rival to Bully Beef as my dad used to call it from his army days. Ah, if I could count the Spam and mustard sandwiches I've eaten . . . . . . ! I haven't had any for over forty years, I reckon. The trick is to slice it wafer thin. LOL

NO, I've never eaten it either, although I have seen it in the supermarkets heaps of times when I've been doing the shopping.
