Please don’t tell me I’m alone.
Am I the only foodie who likes SPAM? This giveaway is my desperate call to all fellow SPAM-lovers. Okay, you don’t have to love SPAM. But I’m betting you still love a good dish, and you definitely love $1,000 in cash.
If not, I suggest to halt whatever medication you’re on right now. It’s not working.
Anyway, SPAM may not be the most sexy thing ever, but it holds a lot of nostalgia for me because I grew up eating SPAM. My mom is not an idiot; she knows SPAM isn’t the healthiest thing on earth, but she allowed SPAM to slip into our meals from time to time, because she’s also wise enough to know that a little SPAM won’t kill you.
Plus, it’s tasty. It’s got that salty bacony taste, but it’s fat and plump and juicy without all the grease. It tastes to me like…bacon pate. Mmm.
If I got your attention on that $1,000 award, listen up.
From now until April 14th, upload a crowd-pleasing recipe that uses a SPAM product to SPAM.com. And then you can ask your family, your work friends, your Twitter friends, your Facebook friends, your MySpace friends, and any human being to rate your recipe.
The top rated recipe will win $1,000.
You know what you can buy with a thousand bucks? 500 Supersize McDonald’s french fries. Or a decent DSLR camera. Your choice.
Now the SPAM folks have a specific recipe they are looking for. They want something that suggests a potluck meal. Here’s what they say:

Now, I’m sure some of you have memories of SPAM…Perhaps you should start calling your mother and grandmother and aunts and grandaunts?
But for now, let me get to the other goodie part.
SPAM is giving away a SPAM starter-kit to ONE lucky SPAM-loving READER to get you spamming away in your kitchen. Here’s what you’ll get:
- A SPAM spatula (use to eat)
- A SPAM artwork (do not eat)
- 4 SPAM products (can eat)
Those of you watching your diet, lookie here!
1) Tell me what you want to make with SPAM.
2) Follow SPAM on Facebook and let me know you do (secretly if you wish)
3) Follow SPAM on Twitter and again, let me know you did so. Don’t worry, they won’t spam you. I think.
I’m probably going to enter this contest myself. $1,000 is money that could pay a month’s rent.
I already have several ideas, but I think I might just stick to a nostalgic dish. I’ll post it once I make it!
