    Or the vicinity, the more remote the better. It's considered a delicacy out there. Especially where there's a history of cannibalism. Supposedly it tastes like people! Your friend in a roll-top can.

    There’s a place here in town that sells spam burritos.

    When Grand daughter lived in Hawaii, she was amazed to go in Walmart, and see a whole wall of different flavored Spam. Plus at most meals, there was some form of Spam or pineapple.

    On the internet.

    If you Google > spam menu < for images you will see a lot of SPAM and a few images of menus with spam.

    What do the letters SPAM represent?

    From internet Q&A:

    The letters have also been said to be an acronym for 'specially processed American meat'. There are however other suggestions that it stands for 'shoulders of pork and ham' or 'specially processed animal meat'.
    From Wikipedia:

    Spam was introduced by Hormel on July 5, 1937. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America states that the product was intended to increase the sale of pork shoulder which was not a very popular cut. Ken Daigneau, brother of a company executive, won a $100 prize that year in a competition to name the new item. Hormel claims that the meaning of the name "is known by only a small circle of former Hormel Foods executives", but popular beliefs are that the name is an abbreviation of "spiced ham". The difficulty of delivering fresh meat to the front during World War II saw Spam become a ubiquitous part of the U.S. soldier's diet. It became variously referred to as "ham that didn't pass its physical", "meatloaf without basic training", and "Special Army Meat". Over 68,000 tonnes (150 million pounds) of Spam were purchased by the military before the war's end.
    My mother grew up as an Army brat. Maybe this explains our dinners of baked beans and SPAM.
