In association with SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham
The world’s most iconic meat is celebrating 80 years as a global brand this year and what better time to celebrate than with the official SPAM® Appreciation Week, 6-12 March 2017, a time when SPAM® fans can come together and their share their stories.
SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham is so versatile and certainly more than just a square meal! SPAM® Can… be sliced, diced, chopped, grilled and fried to make delicious quick and easy meals and snacks. Why not try SPAM® as a pizza topping or crisped up and mixed with melted cheese for SPAMTASTIC™ potato skins. I love it fried and tossed into a salad with garlic croutons!
Following its debut last year the popular SPAM® Can Tour is returning for a second year, launching in Liverpool on 6 May and touring the country until the end of August.
