All-American as it may be…global popularity

“As a kid growing up in a Filipino family, the SPAM® Brand was a staple of our kitchen, and I’ve spent my life raving about its charms to the uninitiated — those unfortunate souls. All-American as it may be, the SPAM® Brand is an international phenomenon, and The Ultimate SPAM Cookbook does a phenomenal job capturing its remarkable global popularity.”

~ Drew Lazor, Philadelphia Daily News, Food/Drink Columnist

SPAM® products have become part of America’s culinary quilt.

“The Ultimate SPAM® Cookbook shows cooks there’s more to SPAM® Classic than a frying pan with recipes that will make you realize how SPAM® products have become part of America’s culinary quilt.”

~ Anne Braly, Food Columnist, Chattanooga Times Free Press

To think that…American hero

“SPAM® Classic is the first edible American Icon and the only edible icon that is also one of the most used words in the world. To think that SPAM® brand is the root of festivals and museums only adds to the legend. Every chef should have a SPAM® dish on their menu and pay homage to this American hero.”

SPAM Museum

The SPAM® brand has reached icon status. In America, people come from far and wide to visit the SPAM® Museum. Located in Austin, Minnesota (the birthplace of the SPAM® brand), this museum contains all things SPAM® brand, and pays tribute to its presence across the world. In 1998, SPAM® product packaging was donated to the Smithsonian. How many meat products can boast such a distinction? All of this passion and demand has amounted to this: in 2012, the eight-billionth can of SPAM® product was produced.
