SPAM® produced by Hormel Foods Corporation, traces its history to 1937. The canned cooked pork was one of the staples for WWII U.S. service personnel. Today SPAM® is sold in over 40 countries.
In Hawaii, SPAM® musubi, made of cooked SPAM®, rice and wrapped with nori, a sheet of seaweed is one of the favorites local snack.
The product can be served hot or cold. Due to affordability, accessibility, and storable without refrigeration makes it very popular.
It is interesting to see that Hormel Corporation has launched a national advertising campaign promoting the versatility of SPAM® which can be cooked and prepared in multiple ways.
