Low fat, low sodium spam .....

11 posts in this topic

Usually i buy regular spam in some form... hickory or garlic....

But... yesterday i thought i would try the low sodium ....

I usually eat it with rice for breakfast... followed by papaya or pinapple.

This spam is terrible... it has no flavor. i usually cube a slice and fry it gently till crisp ...then spread on rice. i had to add hot sauce to give it flavor.

Really! I mean whats the point?

I hear from people all the time they cant tell the difference. is it me? or what?

i think its awful.

the honey variety is pretty bad as well. what do you buy?

The reason spam is spam is because of the sodium. And the nitrates etc...but if you're gonna eat it why f... with it??? It's like no salt peanut butter, or no fat cheese. You're going for the whole effect. Don't screw with it!

my thoughts exactly.... but a lot of people here in da islands love it and say they cant tell the difference....buy my GOD its just plain awful. i use just enough of the regular stuff to flavour my rice....but this low fat low sodium thing is nasty.

yeah my diet generally sucks ...but i do cut my own pinapples and pick my own mangos and papayas....cant live without da spam and rice though. i see its on sale this week ... $1.59/can.... all varities. wont be buying that low sodium stuff again...maybe can use whats left as a door stop.

Spam without the salty taste is not spam at all. A true-blue Filipino would eat spam morning, noon and night. A family favorite is to slice thinly and fry until crisp. It almost taste like bacon!

spam and rice are best mates! i absolutely have to have it for breakfast every morning. i think its better than bacon. now.. that said..... i am a hugh fan of the pig. but something about spam with rice is SO good.....all cripsy on the outside and soft on the inside ...a little hawaiian sweet sauce on it mmm....... delicious!

The sodium and fat content are major sources of flavor in spam. It is like taking the cheese and oil out of pizza. You may as well eat white bread with tomato sauce!
