Spotted by a coworker of mine while on a visit to the Philippines is this here SPAM JAM™ kiosk. It’s located in the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, which borders Manila. I wonder if Hormel has approved them trademarking that name, as we all know how big they are on promoting the Waikiki SPAM JAM.
Whatever the case, looking at the prices, at the current exchange rate of 44 peso to the dollar, the SPAM Musubi for 38 peso comes out to 86¢, and the SPAM Burger and SPAM Breakfast Platter for 72 peso comes out $1.64 each.
While on the subject, a local radio station was sharing this photo on their Facebook page this morning…

This Hash Brown, Bacon SPAM & Egg Breakfast Musubi idea originally comes courtesy of JustJennRecipes.com, which Jenn explains was inspired when Hormel sent her a can of SPAM Bacon to try. Genius! I shall try making this myself!
While we’re at her website, just when you THOUGHT you’ve seen it all at the annual Waikiki SPAM JAM, Jenn busts out SPAM Musubi Push Pops!…

How cool is that! Definitely never seen this done before.

Only thing is, she should have created a SPAM Maki Sushi first by centering the SPAM lengthwise within the rice, sprinkled on the outside with Furikake, then somehow getting that into the push pop and compressing it tight. That way as you push it up, you get a balanced, equal amount of SPAM, rice and Furikake in each bite.
I think I’ll submit my application for a booth at next year’s Waikiki SPAM JAM, selling SPAM Musubi Push Pops. Guaranteed would bank! I’ll have to work with Jenn on royalty fees for that. ;-)
