I'm sorry but I will NOT be making these

SPAM™ Cupcakes

Mrs. Bun: Have you got anything without SPAM?

Waitress: Well, there's SPAM, egg, sausage and SPAM. That's not got much SPAM in it.

**update** In case you didn't spend your childhood eating fried SPAM™, here's some vital information:

SPAM™ Fact Sheet

Get a load of those crazy Hawaiians, eh?

My God Spam. I haven't eaten that for at least a thousand years.

Can't say that I was a bigger lover and my frenchie husband will defintely turn his nose up at that !!!

Leon's life - I don't think I've eaten SPAM since about 1975! Thank goodness.

Belinda - can you imagine? And with the mashed potatoes on the top?

Elemm - I'm sure whatever you make will be a thousand times better than those cupcakes!

Sandra - these could be sold as an appetite suppresent, I think.

cmhl - Don't worry - so did we!! I guess SPAM was more socially acceptable back then. :-)

The recipe says "grate Spam". How can you grate something that has the consistency of poorly-set jelly?

I think they can only market this stuff to an american market. However, I only think crazy people who can stand processed food can eat this stuff. Or those people who's staples are mac and cheese, top ramen noodles and spam are clear candidates for this recipe.

Once you see how the stuff is processed, I'd say spam eaters could convert. Maybe they should display those things in a museum. You wouldn't have to add anything to it to preserve its contents. YUCK!

Maybe it's a good way to loose your appetite for the evening.

i also was raised in a spam household. my mother would fry the hell out of it and flatten it with a very fried peppered, salted and cheesed egg...yummm... hehehe...haven't had it in a very long time. there is a bar in Alaska that only serves spam-orientated foods, as well as spam shots (which are great to buy for people to give them a hint to either go away or come hither...they really make a market for it even as super kitsch (when it was mostly just kitsch or gross in most peoples minds)

No, tragically, SPAM is not only for an American market. We also export it. It's incredibly popular in Korea. It got popular here during the Korean War, which makes me wonder if that whole war was a Hormel marketing campaign. There's a large SPAM section in every grocery store here, and there are SPAM gift packs sold during the holidays. It's a sad fact: the rest of the world knows us by George Bush and SPAM.

Sandra - Scary, isn't it? According to the SPAM Fact Sheet, the U.S. doesn't even have to export SPAM to Korea because it's already produced there, as well as in Denmark and the Philippines. Yum! :-)

You know what the sick thing is. NOW, I'm just curious. Spam Muffins make baby jesus cry and I sooooo want to make them "Just to see".

Curiosity has always been a weak point.

Ok, I'll make 'em damn it and if you don't ever hear from me again, you'll know why lol
