    I agree on the pumpkin flavor spam, just ewwwwww. However, I love spam perhaps because I grew up in Hawaii and I still eat it, even more so since I started Keto, as IMHO it has the perfect macros of fat, salt protein.

    I do like the "original" Spam.

    I can live nicely without pumpkin pie spiced anything.

    I have never tasted Spam and have no intention of ever doing so. My father ate it fried. It was one thing he never made me try. Thankfully!!!!l

    I have a secret affection for SPAM. I have it maybe once a year. But a fried SPAM sandwich with mustard is a yummy little treat. I know SPAM has a crummy reputation but in its day it was a staple on many pantry shelves. Pumpkin Spice? Oh, I would try it but have low expectations. I heard that when cooking this new edition of SPAM smelled like breakfast sausage.

    I like spam. But I don't cook it often. I think I have made a recipe before flavoring meat with cinnamon/nutmeg. It was ok but not for me. That's essentially pumpkin spice seasoning. I think I will pass.

    I sometimes fry it for sandwiches. I slice it very thin and fry until crisp. Tastes great with lettuce and tomato, about like a BLT. I'll eat Spam but I wont' touch pre packaged cold cuts.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I do eat Spam occasionally. I like it fried to crispy. And, I love pumpkin bread! But, pumpkin flavored Spam? I don't think I'll even try it. Sounds yucky!

    I make spam salad with mayo, pickles, hard boiled eggs and chopped onion. Tastes exactly like ham salad and everyone eats the sandwiches without complaint. It is really good for a summer day and is pretty served on a lettuce leaf.

    Another Spam eater here, couple times a year. Not a pumpkin spice everything fan though. I do like it in pumpkin pie and candles and that's about it. I don't get the appeal of eggnog lattes either.

    My favorite spam treatment is with cornmeal mush, or polenta I guess the foodie types say Make a batch of cornmeal mush the night before and pour it into a bread pan. When ready to cook the spam, cut the mush into slices the same size as your spam slices. Fry both to get a crisp edge and serve with maple syrup.

    I like spam occasionally, and I bought some not too long ago for its keto friendliness. I thought I remember it being cheap, but it's not! I guess no protein is cheap anymore. Even sardines.
    I can live without trying the pumpkin spice though.

    What's wierd is when you fry spam, not a whole lot of fat comes out. I think it's the sodium t hat gives it a bad rap. Plus being canned. LOL.

    Pumpkin spice Spam. No way. Spam is always in my cupboard. I like it fried or quickly warmed in the microwave. While in school my mother would dip it in an egg batter, deep fry and put it my school lunch. Ugg, so greasy!! I asked her to not do that, but at least once a week there it was. One day a classmate asked to trade, so a trend was established, as long as it wasn't fried pinwheel balonga.(baloney) There is a reciepe on the internet to make your own spam.

    I admit, I love Spam. We also used to eat it fried and in sandwiches, growing up. In fact, I may go and buy some tonight haven't had any in a while.

    I appreciate their 25% lower salt edition, can't taste the difference myself but my heart can I'm sure
    I broil it to release some of the fat, blacked around the edges.

    Spam is just ham and chicken, packed in a tin. A lot purer than fast food mystery meat I'm sure.

    This is exactly what my mom would do for our family. My family hates it so I haven't had it in years.
