While Spam is admittedly not the healthiest food choice, for starving students, or those of us just trying to make ends meet at the end of the month, Spam is a cheap, affordable source of protein that keeps hunger at bay a lot longer than Top Ramen.
Spam was first introduced in 1937 and contains chopped pork shoulder meat, ham meat, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, sugar, and sodium nitrite as a preservative.
There are several different flavors of Spam products, including:
Spam Hot & Spicy
Spam Black Pepper
Spam Less Sodium
Spam Oven Roasted Turkey
Spam Hickory Smoke flavor
Spam with Bacon
Spam with Cheese
