Waikiki’s SPAM Jam festival returns to Honolulu, Hawaii every April. The annual street festival offers three stages hosting free musical concerts along with crafts, souvenirs, and food booths serving up (you guessed it) a wide and surprising variety of dishes incorporating the canned ham product first introduced in 1937. Spam remains especially popular with locals, and if you’re in town for the festival, be sure to order at least one loco moco breakfast with rice, a fried egg, and spam.
Spam has entered the mainstream of American food. I have even seen Spam musubi at golf courses in California. Certainly, every general store, ABC, 7-11, and grocery has some form of Spam available.
I enjoy Spam musubi the most, followed by Spam and eggs. But the Spam must be teriyaki style in preparation. When I was the college, we often threw some cubed Spam on top of the steamed rice in my rice cooker, along with a can of vegetables for a midnight snack.
Despite everything you have heard about Span, I think you should give it a try. It is a BEST snack for the golf course!
