DH and I visited Maui, Kuai and Oahu many, many times and I remember the towering displays of Spam offered in the drug stores as well as Costco.  The native Hawaiians clearly love the stuff.

My sister always made spam fried rice which was always great, if you cut it into small cubes its a great dish...

 

I've seen Spam® fried rice here in China, too. That said, real Spam is expensive here and not that easy to find, so cheaper Chinese clone brands are often used instead. These clones are sometimes canned but more often sausage shaped in plastic tubes.

 

It somewhat amused me to find out that Spam in Chinese is "世棒® (shì bàng)"

If my memory serves me correctly, both my Mom and Grandmas used to make grilled Spam and cheese sandwiches. It was so long ago, but I believe they fried the Spam slices first and the cheese slice would kind of attached to it. Then that brick was slid onto the bread, and fried up like a grilled cheese.

I believe that spam is more than 50% fat.

 

According to the published nutritional information, Classic Spam is 29%  fat. Spam Lite is 14%.

I bought it once. I figured fried would be best but I couldn't get past the smell of it in the tin.  Au revoir!
