  • Spam has a long history as a convenience product, a food ration, a luxury item and a leftover from US colonialism.
  • At the time, other companies were using waste products and offcuts like pork noses to make their deli meat, so Spam’s comparative high quality and affordability made it a hit with families struggling through the Great Depression.
  • Spam has a long history in Asia, where it was imported from the US and sometimes considered a luxury product because of its proximity to western culture.
