    My first serious bulk was like 100% Turkey Spam. I ate a good 60 cans of that a month.

    I used to love that ****. Ate it cold right out of the can. 60 grams of protein in a tin, not bad.

    I've never actually tried this before. I gave a can of it away as a booby prize for a contest at work once.

    What does turkey spam taste like? Is it just basically turkey, or are there a bunch of other things included that would factor into the macro breakdown?

    Fried SPAM and cous cous is one of my favorites.

    I've been to the SPAM factory/museum in Austin. It kicks ass, though the entire town indeed smells like ass. In fact, I drank my coffee from my SPAM mug.

    The turkey actually tastes decently close to turkey.

    I don't recall everything about it, but there was quite a bit of fat in it and sodium too.

    Some nutritional info in the varieties in case anyone is interested.
    (based on 6 servings per can)

    SPAM
    16g fat (6 saturated)
    40mg cholesterol
    790mg sodium
    1g carbohydrate
    7g protein.

    SPAM 25 percent less sodium
    180 calories
    16g fat (6 saturated)
    40mg cholesterol
    580mg sodium
    1g carbohydrate
    7g protein

    SPAM Lite
    110 calories
    8g fat (3 saturated)
    40mg cholesterol
    580mg sodium
    1g carbohydrate
    9g protein.

    SPAM Oven Roasted Turkey
    4g fat (1 saturated)
    30mg cholesterol
    420mg sodium
    1g carbohydrate
    10g protein

    the process by which SPAM is made is similar in most versions of the products. After the choice cuts of meat are removed from carcasses, meat and bones are ground together and pushed through sieves to get off all the still-clinging meat bits. The resulting meat has the consistency of paste or batter and contains small amounts of ground-up bone

    Has anybody ever seen any of the imitation SPAM crap?? I read the label of some canned meat... I think it was called "Holidae Luncheon Meat"

    I am completely serious.. The ingredients went something along the lines of

    Ingredients: Beef and/or Pork and/or Chicken. Flour and/or Starch, etc....

    It was like they had no bloody idea what was in it. I wouldn't eat it.
    Maybe I was big in a past life...

    Minotaur got it right! It's SPAM, all caps. "Spam" refers to unsolicted bulk email. Hormel gets mad if you ignore this distinction.

    Minotaur, you're not from southern Minnesota, are you?
