"MILWAUKEE — Love it, hate it or laugh at it — at least it's inexpensive. Sales of Spam — that much maligned meat — are rising as consumers are turning more to lunch meats and other lower-cost foods to extend their already stretched food budgets." Read More Here
I am just amazed the fact that people decided to turn to SPAM because of the rising cost of food. Usually eating or talking about spam - it gets easily mocked by society. But not anymore, since the rising cost of food and fuel, spam has had an increase of sales of at least 14%!
I have always loved Spam. So the increase in sales of it just made my day and amused me. I love spam because it brings back memories of my dad making it on a toasted sandwich with mustard. So one year they had you can earn a shirt with proof of purchase for their 70th anniversary, so I bought a few and then got my free shirt.
To celebrate, I had decided to buy more Spam and take a picture (as you can see).
And buy Spam at a Grocer near you. ;)
