    funny part is that liver pate can be canned and yet people go ga-ga for that yet they're freaking out about spreadable meat here.

    OK, I finally came up with a scenario where I would open one of those cans. World War III has broken out and after all of the nukes have been used up, we are fighting hand to hand. I’m trapped behind enemy lines and I haven’t eaten for six days. As I rummage through the rubble of some destroyed building, I find a can of Spam spread. Exhausted, starving, and desperate, I pop the top and peel the lid back. Then I spread some on a rat trap in the hopes that a rat is more desperate than I am and will try to eat it. Once he has died from that, I feed on his carcass, hoping that digested Spam spread isn’t as deadly as the original lump of gelatinous vomit.

    I've never had the meat spreads, but cooked spam isn't bad. Good with a fried egg on toast or on a grilled cheese sandwich. It's not something I'd pick out to eat normally, but it's cheap and has a long shelf life if you find yourself on a budget.

      Slice it really thin, fry until crisp like bacon then add a ton of BBQ sauce, keep frying until the sauce starts to almost burn. That's the only way to eat spam.

    This stuff is pretty good if you mix it with mayo(miracle whip), diced sweet pickles, diced dill pickles and diced hard boiled eggs. And yes it should be in a sandwich, but crackers will work.

    Lifelong American & the only one I've heard of is the deviled ham. I know of Spam but not 'spreadable' spam. It's all pretty gross but here's a hint: Stir it after you open it so you won't see the coagulated jelly bits. After that, throw it in the trash & go get a hamburger.

    I would not eat any of these meats because they're gross - but the deviled ham at least (and likely the others) is meant to be mixed with a condiment (usually mustard or mayo) and put on a sandwich, not put on a cracker like it's a fancy pate. Straight out of the can is going to be concentrated pure salt.

    Sorry but I'm not eating something that comes in the same can and looks exactly like what I feed my cat. Wouldn't surprise me if that crap was made in the same factory. That being said, I do love me some sardines. Can't eat them at home though, the cat goes apeshit when I open a can of those things, bastard won't leave me alone.

    Latinos like me, we love the last one, deviled ham...it should always ALWAYS GO ON TOAST NOT A FOOKING CRACKER! Also so you know the yellow stuff is the fat from the ham, you can either mix it all together or like I do, scrap it away...but again it NEEDS TO GO ON TOAST!!

    I remember when I was a child in the 70s having sandwiches made with spam, potted meat, and devilled ham (not all in the same sandwich). They were better than bologna, which isn't saying much.

    American canned meat is worse than dog food and their dog food is chemical shite. A lot of American food you find in the stores is completely devoid of recognizable normalcy, flavor, or quality. In fact, it isn't really food. It's laboratory created chemical shite masquerading and advertised as food.

    Underwood Chicken is actually really good...the best product that Underwood Makes. Also, I would try spreadable corned beef, as they tend to be pretty good. I'm personally a big fan of canned formed meats in general (Teriyaki Spam is phenomenal), so I'm actually well-versed in all of these products.

    Most of those canned meat to the Irish people and I love the Irish people the American canned Meats are a survival can food in the event of an emergency where one must or provisions in an emergency this is what they are used for however the canned spam you removed from the can is slice it in thin slices and fry it by itself or if with a little olive oil or butter until Brown you can serve it on dark bread with a heavy grain mustard and some onion it's not that bad I've had it for 30 years but to each his own I just finished a bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey it may not be the top of the line but I like Irish whiskey bon appetit
