Is Spam that bad? What is in it?!

Question: Is Spam that bad? What is in it?
I'm talking about canned Spam of course.

I don't love it, but I don't hate either. I've tried the regular fatty one, the light version, turkey and spicy. So, what's it made of? Brain, intestines, tongue or what??


Ewwwww.... Lol it's left over byproducts just like hot dogs and bologna. It's fat, beaks, cuts of animals they have no use for. It's pork, chicken and beef parts.I hate spam, srapple, bologna and hot dogs for that simple fact. Read the back of the can near the bottom of the nutrition facts.

Spam (officially trademarked as SPAM?, a portmanteau of "Spiced Ham") is a canned precooked meat product made by the Hormel Foods Corporation. The labeled ingredients in the classic variety of Spam are chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, and sodium nitrite as a preservative. Spam's gelatinous glaze, or aspic, forms from the cooling of meat stock.[1] The product has become part of many jokes and urban legends about mystery meat, which has made it part of pop culture and folklore.[2]

Varieties of Spam vary by region and include Spam Classic, Spam Hot & Spicy, Spam Less Sodium, Spam Lite, Spam Oven Roasted Turkey, Hickory Smoked, and Spam Spread.[3]

Spam which is sold in North America, South America, and Australia is produced in Austin, Minnesota, (also known as Spam Town USA) and in Fremont, Nebraska. Spam for the UK market is produced in Denmark by Tulip under license from Hormel.[4] Spam is also made in the Philippines and in South Korea.[5] In 2007, the seven billionth can of Spam was sold.[6] On average, 3.8 cans are consumed every second in the United States.[7
And in my opinion, it is one of the nastiest 'foods' on Earth.

It is Spiced Ham and is made of chopped shoulder meat.

Spam ( SPiced hAM ) or pork luncheon meat is processed pork it can be use in stir fry dishes stews pies fritters and even as a bacon substitute. It used to be cheap meat as was corned beef. Anyway do not dismiss it as rubbish.

Shoulder of Pork And Ham. It's just like any other processed meat. The fact that it comes in a can just makes it look rank.
