I used to love Spam...haven't had it in a while. My favorite way to have it is thinly sliced, fried w/a fried egg and toast. So good!!!

masarap ang SPAM. mas masarap pa sa LUNCHEONMEAT na MALING. walang binatbat. gusto ko sha kainin ng medium rare na fried, yoko malutong kc nawawala ang totoong lasa at umaalat sha. pero the best kinakain ko sya strait sa lata parang nasa gera. gusto ko flavor tabasco, cheese, hamburger at ang pinaka masarap yung nasa avatar ko. original flavor. kaya lang mahal dito sa pinas,, sana may mag trip lang na mabait padalan ako kahit ilang pcs lang kc gustong gusto ko talaga sha sarap eh. kung my friend lang ako sa states papalibre ako. pero eto fan naman ako. nakuha ko yang SPAM nasa avatar ko nung may nagpadala sakin japanese gurl fan din sha. special edition SPAM and etong christmas ko lang sha kinain grabe sobrang naapreciate ko talaga kahit nagiisa lang sha. pinichuran ko din ng ilan shot katabi ng christmas tree. tinatago ko parin ang lata.. 09275853129 # ko marvin 2

I'm 20 years old and I've still never tasted spam. I'm quite ashamed of myself.

I have had Spam before and I didn't really care for it. Does anyone know if Spam is similar to Taylor Ham (porkroll)?

I only got 3 right :( Dad used to make fried Spam all the time, it's pretty tasty on a hamburger bun, but I don't eat it now.

I have a can of bacon flavoured spam in my "in case of zombie apocalypse emergency food kit" So.. unless the zombies come, we won't be eating it. heh. My dad used to LOVE fried spam and egg sandwiches. I'll admit to enjoying the smell, but all the fat and processed pork products made it something I would never actually eat.

I grew up on Spam--but really didn't do well on the quiz. So much to learn...

I love SPAM and I still sucked at this quiz. I am very surprised to find out it has real meat in it. I thought that it contained "meat" like most hot dogs. My favorite SPAM sandwich recipe

Mix together:
One can of SPAM, grated on a cheese grater
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
One small can of chopped, green chiles, drained
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
Sliced black olives
Mayo to taste, or just enough to help it all stick together if you don't like mayo
Spread on bread and enjoy. You can also put it under the broiler for grilled SPAM. Store the unused mix in the refrigerator and makes the spamwiches as you need them.

It IS meat! I guess some of you have never had Vienna sausages either.

I knew a few, simply because I live in Minnesota. But I loathe Spam, it's disgusting and the slime that comes out of the can makes me want to hurl!

I love Spam! Don't knock it til you try it! I love it fried til it's nice & crispy.. & eat it with eggs & rice. It might be a Filipino thing, but I grew up with it & still love it for breakfast.
