Never been a fan of Spam, or potted meat food products.  Actually, I've seen potted meat used as a negative reinforcement during a knowledge quiz that a senior Marine was inflicting on us many years ago (I was a Private or Lance Corporal at the time).  So, "What is the effective range of the M16A2 against a point target?" meant you had better answer 550 meters or you were eating a heaping spoonful of potted meat.  I've never felt mean enough to do that to my Marines.

For my part, I'll take some nicely fried Scrapple if I have the choice of picking "whatever" meat.

By the way, when I was young, my Dad for some reason thought potted meat was "required" eating on fishing trips.  I guess I'll have to pass that "tradition" to my children.

As long as you don't tell us your Dad's name is Carl and he also enjoys mustard and biscuits.  TongueOut

That's the funny thing about all of these products. A lot of people must like them or they wouldn't be available. I ponder that whenever I'm at the deli counter. Along with all the nice salami, pastrami, corned beef, roast beef, turkey and so forth, there is always head cheese, blood and tongue sausage, liquid ham-like substance cast into huge blocks, and something that looks like jellied barf. I've never seen anyone buy them, but the store stocks an awful lot.

I suspect it's the older generation consuming this stuff, but it does get passed down. Every time I buy cold cuts, I think about getting a few slices of that canned corned beef - the stuff that comes as a big block in a huge can. My mom used to give it to me in sandwiches, way back when. I recall really enjoying it. Still, Cajun roast turkey breast always seems to win out over flaky corned beef log.

Now I feel compelled to post a video of me trying potted meat!   Smile

This thread makes me want to go out and buy a can of spam right away. And for those who will be near San Diego County during the running of the San Diego State Fair, each year they offer a food speciality. This year it looks like the speciality food will be deep-fat fried spam. Can we say: "Yum!"

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
