I haven’t had SPAM in decades, but I used to eat it a lot. I bought a can last month, and finally opened it.
How SPAM Has Changed
I remember the block of meat glopping out, coated with translucent glop like the juice that congeals when you put your baked ham in the refrigerator. No glop, now. I miss the glop.
Probably because the glop is missing, possibly because there seems to be less fat in the product, it doesn’t brown and crisp the way I remember.
How SPAM Is the Same
I still like it. It tastes kind of hammy and kind of pork-roast-y. Too salty, but they have a low-sodium version I might try the next time I buy a can, forty-odd years from now.
How We Et It
Spam and eggs, o’ course. Classic.
I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a food even less appetizing than this.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Your character eats an “unappetizing” food and loves it.
