Re: Any Spam eaters here(Yes the canned meat product)?

As far as meat spreads goes, I will avoid any potted meat product made by Amour . FTFY. Stuff is as nasty as the name makes it sound. They aren't as terrible as you might think if prepared the proper, original way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdKzWQOVET4 That being said, I'm not about to go tru...

Re: Any Spam eaters here(Yes the canned meat product)?

I keep some in the house and eat it from time to time. I agree with pps, it has a strong flavor and it's very salty. I don't know how much sodium a can has, but I suspect it's the daily allowance for a week. I like the individual foil packs they sell. Those are handy when you want to just put it on...

Corned beef hash with a fried egg on top is delicious (though not particularly healthy).

Re: Any Spam eaters here(Yes the canned meat product)?

Yeah I wouldn't feed that stuff to my dog either if I had one. In fact I wouldn't eat at all myself unless I was in pretty dire straits, such being homeless with with not much money. Come to think of it, the homeless are probably Armour's biggest costumers of potted meat products. So you'd be the h...

Re: Any Spam eaters here(Yes the canned meat product)?

FTFY. Stuff is as nasty as the name makes it sound. Well the stuff made by Underwood is really good. But that is a premium product to begin with.

I doubt I would eat any more than a can or two a week if even that anyway. As far as meat spreads goes, I will avoid any potted meat product made by Amour.

Oh I agree that canned ham does taste much better than Spam, but you can make either one taste even better with hot sauce or even soy sauce.

You know, I have gotten many more replies to this thread than I expected. In fact I was thinking that most folks here would think I'm really gross for even having a craving for Spam let alone actually eating the stuff. But like I said Spam doesn't taste too bad once you spiced it up a bit.

And yes, both Shop n Save and Walmart are expensive compared to places like Food Ruler and Food for Less. However it is...

Maybe both? I like can goods simply because I can get them on sale every so often and keep them around in case of emergencies and/or for when I'm broke.

I don't know about eating canned pheasant, but if you gave me a decent brand of French canned horse I would eat it just to see what horse meat taste like. Tried to find one, but with no success. Horse meat is known to be much less fatty than beef cow, so I'd wager that your best analog would be bis...

Yes, but do you see cans of "beef" at the grocery? There are plenty of cans of processed taco filling, sloppy joes etc made of beef but not a one to be found if you search for canned beef. Very unlike say, canned chicken chunks. https://www.amazon.com/Keystone-Meats-Natural-Canned-Ground/...

Mmm, Dinty Moore. Hash, stew, or chili, it's all cheap eats I once relied upon.

I used to eat Dinty Moore beef stew over rice or Ramen Noodles.

I'm thinking chicken and turkey would be the best meat to artificially grow and far easier to sell to a wider range of people than beef or pork. If it's all artificial anyway, why would people object based on what kind of meat it is meant to resemble? Well maybe, but I'm thinking that devout Hindus...

Kind of moot at the moment since we are a long way from mass producing artificially grown meat. I wonder how a company could market it to consumers?
