The official SPAM® Appreciation Week starts on 5th March 2016 and to get the party started there will be a SPAM® Can Tour (fresh from a successful tour of the US) which will start in Liverpool and go on throughout the summer. Fans of SPAM® Chopped Pork and Ham can bring the whole family to visit the specially designed eye catching airstream van and sample the increasingly popular SPAM® Fries which are appearing in popular restaurants across the country. Regional chefs and special guests will also be on hand at some of the venues to show just how versatile SPAM® Can be!
As well as eating there’s lots of fun to be had with family and friends! How about having your photo taken in the Giant SPAM® Can or even playing the specially created SPAM® Can Alley game at the more family orientated events. Fans can round off their day by bringing home a free commemorative tour lanyard that shows the various ways SPAM® Can be enjoyed, from the ultimate breakfast fry up to traditional favourites such as SPAM® Hash, plus a free branded trolley coin that can be used in all major UK supermarkets.
It’s 75 years since SPAM® Products came to the UK and as they were originally manufactured in Liverpool this is where the SPAM® Can Tour will start. Visiting eight locations across the UK in 2016, the confirmed dates for the are:
