    Ah yes, that strange food that was my first memory of fried spam sandwiches my sister made me at a very young age.
    My grandfather and his brother worked for wilson food packing for 40 years, we had alot of boloney and olive loaf.

    More spam is consumed in Hawaii than anywhere else in the nation. It even appears on the menu at Hawaiian McDonalds'.

    You're so lucky. Not everybody can afford the fresh Spam.

    I'm going to keep it until it's 100 years old, bet I'll get a good price for it. I'll sell it to American Pickers.
