    I couldn't resist buying Spam when I saw the 70th Anniversary can at Wal-Mart. Eating it brought back memories of my Army days--1943-1946. I saved the can and recently shot this image on my kitchen table using existing ight.

      I named our dog "Spam" in 1988 in honor of the 50th anniversary. He's no longer with us, however.

      When I go camping, I occasionally take a can or two. I slice it and roast it on a stick over the fire. I like it, but I prefer the low sodium kind these days--better for the blood pressure. I'll have to look for this can in the Wal-Mart when I go later this week. Thanks for sharing your memories Don!

      I have never heard about it, but it is nice to see it and read about it on Flickr.

      Dad would fix the best SPAM suppers -- sometime SPAMburgers, sometimes baked glazed SPAM w/pineapple. He would ask if everything was alright. I was quick to tell him NO 'cause it was never enough. He added another can for future SPAM meals. SPAM is heavenly. I bet Wal-Mart didn't do a price rollback to match the original cost.

      We used to buy and eat it on maneuvers in the Army. It was better than some of the K rations.

      what a neat photo!
      i had a great aunt and uncle who loved this stuff...along with vienna sausages! i couldn't eat either one though..didn't like the looks of the gook that came out of the can with it!
      your picture prompted me to find out just exactly what IS in that can of spam...interesting!
