SPAM Mints — Not As Gross As It Sounds

SPAM, the canned precooked meat packed by Hormel Foods, has been at the butt of many jokes and tall-tales over the years. For those unfamiliar, SPAM comes from a derivative of Shoulder Pork HAM, and often gets confused with mystery meat.

As if the confusion wasn’t high enough, let’s add another wrinkle in SPAM’s history. Introducing, SPAM Mints  a package of 1.5 ounces of little cinnamon-flavored meat shaped mints. Each tin can is shaped after a retro SPAM container, surely setting the tone for confusion for years to come. ($3.99 @ Amazon)
