Decent price on SPAM for the emergency larder
« on: August 01, 2023, 09:49:21 AM »
A little over $2 a can, which is significantly better than the grocery store price.

I ordered a 12 pack for the emergency shelf and for winter spam and eggs.

If you have a Sam's card, they currently have SPAM classic 8 packs on an "Instant Savings" special for $17.58 ea. Regular is $22.58.

They also have 6 packs of 12.5 oz canned chicken for $12.84. Keep lots of those around.

$2.20/can actually matches the price at Sam's which is sort of unusual for Amazon.

Oh boy! Double the anuses!

That's one thing I'm not particularly worried about on Amazon. The blow back for carrying counterfeit food products can be absolutely extreme. Amazon does a pretty good job at policing that, it seems, at least in the United States.

For anybody wondering…
SPAM is Smoked Pork and Meat. According to my sister in law, retired from a career working for Hormel, it’s actually quite good quality with none of the nasty bits people think it contains.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Works out to the same price though.

I would rather get it at Sam's than take a chance getting something expired or close to from Amazon although the listing has tons of great reviews. Hmmm



You say that like you really believe it expires.   :rofl:

We shipped large amounts to the Russians during WW-II and no doubt just a story but heard they referred to it as Second Front.

Spam isn't smoked, or at least it wasn't until the Hickory Smoked version was introduced in the 1990s. It's got a very mild smoke flavoring, really just a hint, but I've always thought that that could be the other spices giving that impression.

And yes, just like hot dogs, Spam gets a lot of guff for being "made from anything that's not considered edible!" Which is absolute bullshit.

While Spam isn't my favorite food, there are times and situations when I really enjoy it. Spam and eggs brings back very fond memories of winter camping with the Scouts when I was a kid.

A sliced Spam and cheese sandwich can be a tasty change from my normal ham and cheese.

And believe it or not, cubed fried spam with rice sweet chili or sweet and sour sauce is a damned good toss together dinner.

Khrushchev said that without Spam there would have been times that Russian wouldn't have been able to feed the Red Army.

Spam was also widely distributed to the British under Lend Lease food aid.

Hormel has a different formulation for Spam that goes to the Chinese market. Apparently the standard formulation didn't sit well with the Chinese palate.

Yep, we shipped it everywhere. In some places they loved it and still do to this day.

This should have been obligatory in this thread.

I'm surprised it's not been posted yet.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

They love it in Hawaii. I had Spam & eggs at some hole-in-the-wall place on the North Shore that damn near changed my religion.

I'm pretty sure you can get spam and eggs at Hawaii McDonalds, the same as you can get linguica there. The latter because of the Portuguese connection.
