~*~ rara avis ~*~
Although this is one of the more peculiar pumpkin spice products on the market, surprisingly, the general consensus was that the flavor really wasn’t bad. It certainly had that soft texture that anyone who’s had Spam will be familiar with, as well as the expected salty, porky Spam flavor. Cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg shared center stage with the rich and savory Spam flavor, however, along with a hint of sweetness.
“It reminds me of breakfast sausage,” one taster said. “Honestly, it would go great with some eggs and waffles.”
“It wasn’t as bad as I expected!” another said. “It definitely seems like it would work best when paired with other elements, like in a scramble or breakfast sandwich, though.”
Indeed, the Spam folks recommend incorporating it into dishes including waffles, frittatas, cornbread, panini or a fall vegetable hash.
