    Regular spam is actually pretty good. However that may be because of many reasons to me. Maybe I am a masochist, or maybe its because I grew up on it? Or the third and most likely reason is I have ruined my taste buds and everything tastes like salt anyways these days.

    After The Great Flood, and after the waters subsided, the Lord said “Now you can eat meat.”-Excepting the blending of the meat; nor shall you combine the animals into a sludge nor tin the sludge to congeal and leave jiggly fat upon the bottom of the tin.
    Yea, nor shall ye spread animals upon baked goods of any kind.”
    I think I saw that in Genesis.. 🤔

    Hi there, my grandmother passed away last week and when I called to tell me father (who lives quite far away) he was trying to cheer me up and made me watch this video while I was on the phone so he could hear my reaction. It was very sweet of him and it started me off watching loads of your videos -- so I just wanted to say Thank You all for helping me laugh and get through this sad time. You're all wonderful. Keep up the ridiculous work :)

    Canned meats are the leftover parts that aren't normally eaten but the general public like tongue, anus, tendons, tail and snout/nose ground into a gelatinous mass then canned. The only difference between this stuff and moist pet food is that it hasn't been shoveled off the floor and reboiled, ground up and sent off to Purina or Alpo for canning. Yuck.

    Never seen spam spread. But all of them are what we call sandwich spreads. Usually you use mayo, that's why they are salty. You use your choice of SANDWICH toppings.

    I watch these and cringe. As an American, these people sending in this stuff or suggesting this stuff, at least send in proper crackers to eat it with or instructions about proper way to eat it! Take the stuff and stir it some!!

    I don’t know what the Americans are saying here, I’ve heard of them all. By the way, I’m not eating canned spam, rather canned corned beef with crackers. Well, I was eating this, I just finished. Yummy!
    I would so love to go to their live show!! Please come to the states sometimes!

    Spam is Very popular in Hawaii. During WW Two it was used as a meat substitute ...some what. I have never had any except the Spam and I would never again!! Not even in US Marine Corps boot camp did we have to eat Any of those. Its consider cruel and unusual punishment. Semper FI.

    Everyone claiming Americans don't eat these has never been poor. Why do you think they're available in every grocery store in the country if nobody eats them? They're pretty common fare among the poor in Asia and South America as well.

    Done right they can be pretty darned tasty as well as stretch far enough to feed an entire family.

    You guys get Spam in ROUND tins? We only get them in rectangular! I feel robbed! But here's the thing. You didn't prepare any of it properly. You're supposed to mix the tin of meat with a little mayo in a bowl, then spread it on some toast, maybe a little lettuce, tomato, avocado, and salt/pepper as well. Then it's actually quite tasty. You're not supposed to eat it straight out of the tin. That's nasty.

    The deviled ham, you have to mix it with mayo and chopped up sweet pickles and make a sandwich. Totally changes the flavor of it in a good way.
