SPAM (food)

More than eight billion cans of SPAM® Products have been opened since its launch back in 1937

They may only be islands, but Hawaii and Guam go crazy for SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham.

In Aloha State more than 7 million SPAM® products are sold per year and Hawaii even hosts its own annual SPAM JAM® festival in Honolulu.

While in Guam an average of 16 SPAM® products are consumed by every person per year.

SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is made from more than 90% prime shoulder pork and ham.

In South Korea, SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is considered a gourmet delicacy and is often given as a gift. Who knew?!

  1. I won some spam a few years ago but I confess I didn't enjoy it. But I do love frittata!

  2. I love a frittata for brunch! So easy to customise too.

  3. Love the look of your frittata, a great lunch idea!

  4. That looks colourful and fresh. I wouldn't think of something as appealing as this when I hear the word SPAM - great job!
