I know. I actually used to eat a lot of Span sandwiches. Mustard, mayo, and sweet pickles spruce it up pretty well. If I had time to fry it, that was even better...

I never liked SPAM and I think it was the smell more than the taste that turned me off at an early age. My father on the other hand, absolutely loved it.

And so, one Thanksgiving at my father's house, he asked me to come help him in the kitchen. He told me that the turkey needed to come out of the oven and that it was so glorious a bird, enormous and weighted down with stuffing and all the accoutrements, that he had to have help just to get it to the table.

I was excited to help.

He opened up the oven door, and the smell of SPAM hit me full on like a freight train. There in the oven was a perfectly sculpted turkey made entirely of SPAM.

It was both hilarious, and completely sickening. laugh

There are very few things that I wont even consider especially in a survival situation. Spam, chicken livers,sardines and kippers being at the top of the list. You should know your limits. Some things are just bait for better things.

my local supermarket has an excellent scotch broth, mutton/pearl barley/split peas/turnip/carrots, while i admit there is not much mutton 4% it has alot of veg and i like the taste. i have several hundred tins of the stuff stacked away (312) and always add more to my weekly shop 10-12 tins extra just for backup.

I'm not fan of Spam, but after a long time without food, it would be delicious.

I'd have to just use it for bait to catch something better, either that or go vegeterian.

"...sardines..."

Yuk. Give me Spam over that any day! Never had kippers, but they don't sound good either. Corned beef hash is good, 'specially with lots of ketchup...
