    Makes sense....meat product that doesn't need refrigeration.

    And Tennessee is the largest per capita consumer of fish sticks. Go
    figure.

    Terribly old news. Guam and Hawaii lead the pack in SPAM consumption,
    and have for many, many years.
    Kinda like Utah leads in JELLO consumption.

    Here's the delicious link:

    BTW, I like spam. Fried, then with yellow mustard on white bread. I can
    eat a dozen of them. But not too much any other way, and I will eat just
    about anything.

    This is what comes from living in the middle of nowhere. You'll think
    I'm kidding but we can go to McDonald's and get a Spam breakfast with
    rice and eggs. I forgive you my son, for doubting me Thomas ...er, SteveB.

    Our biggest problem with visiting the mainland is that we can't get no
    Spam for breakfast and the restaurants don't have any fruit punch.
    Horrible, just horrible.

    Spam is popular throughout the South Pacific along with canned corned
    beef.

    Strangely, growing up with both during WWII left me with a dislike for
    both, while my wife (who was in Britain during the war) not only likes
    them, but eats Spam and corned beef on occasion in sandwiches or with
    eggs.

    When I lived on Maui during the late-60's the local "Hawaiian
    Breakfast" for the workers was a couple of plain hotdogs, a Pepsi and
    a pack of Kools from "Fuku's Suck'em'ups Eats Bar" down in Kihei. Spam
    was a treat.

    I'm not a big Spam fan either but I've had a few too many Portuguese
    sausage breakfasts - my breakfast of choice at McDonald's would be a
    sausage McMuffin without egg cause it's a buck and doesn't suck. :-)

    Thew article from 1950? or the one from 1960? Or the one from
    1962, or... which one?

    Hawaii has led in the sales of SPAM for decades.

    Hi, Steve.....I saw a 1 hour documentary on cable a few weeks
    back....Discovery Travel & Living Channel.... The program was 'Bizarre
    Foods'.... It was the usual guy that does all the eating of what he calls
    'Bizarre Foods' and most of what he eats IS truly bizarre....In this program
    he is in Hawaii, and going around many places eating 'Spam'..Personally he
    hated spam and had it served up in many different ways....Apparently the
    Hawaiian folk 'love' the stuff and at least one particular place served up
    nothing but Spam.... The guy only really liked it in one 'Breakfast'
    dish...'Cooked on top of cake mixture and served up in squares !!

    The liking for Spam crosses ancestral lines in Hawaii. Spam NIgiri is
    often available in quite good sushi place.

    Old, well-known phenom. This is due to the fact that during WWII,
    when there were so many American troops there, Spam was a frequent
    meal item, and the Hawaiians kind of adopted it as their own.

    (It's pretty good, sliced and fried with brown sugar and crushed
    pineapple on top after it's turned once.)

    My father says the current SPAM is an inferior product to what they got
    in the navy during WWII. What do you think?

    Exactly. It's nothing new. Despite Spam being manufactured, er, canned, in
    Minnesota, it's been popular in Hawaii for decades.

    I think memory is a tricky thing; the product could be identical and not be
    nearly as good now as it was then. When you had nothing to look forward to
    but a hot Spam meal, Spam was mighty tasty treat (not Treet); having been
    deprived improves anything you get. OTOH, living with plenty of great
    choices today makes Spam look like ground hog scraps.

    The best watermelon I have ever had in my life was in Vietnam 40 years ago;
    every watermelon today pales in comparison. I suspect that even a bad
    watermelon would have been perceived as magnificent when eaten on an LZ
    after 10 days in the jungle living on C-rations.

    The original/classic SPAM today is the same as it was when originally made
    in the 1930s... however the tin changed in the mid '50s, used to need a key
    to open the tin (many tinned products did back then). Since there have been
    many new versions of
    SPAM. I've tried them all, I don't like any but the original. I consume on
    average 2 cans a month.

    I should have also added, the ability to taste changes as one ages.
    Apparently sweet is a taste that still works well as one ages, just look at
    the carts of older shoppers - lots of cookies, cakes, etc. My own, elderly,
    mother has acquired a taste for cayenne and other "hot" spices, as well as
    vinegar and other sour flavorings. So, even if the food were identical,
    there ability to taste it has changed.
