I remember on TV commercials they said it was made from pork shoulders and ham. I just checked their website and it listed the ingredients as:

1. Pork with ham
2. Salt
3. Water
4. Potato starch
5. Sugar
6. Sodium nitrite

There's no gelatin added, it forms as it's cooked in the cans. And no mystery meat.

I found this at Wikipedia: Spam was introduced by Hormel in 1937. Ken Daigneau, brother of a company executive, won a $100 prize that year in a competition to name the new item. Hormel claims that the meaning of the name "is known by only a small circle of former Hormel Foods executives", but popular beliefs are that the name is an abbreviation of "spiced ham", "spare meat", or "shoulders of pork and ham". Another popular explanation is that Spam is an acronym standing for "Specially Processed American Meat" or "Specially Processed Army Meat".

I see bologna mentioned in a couple of posts. I don't recall having any in several years. I don't have anything against it, I just like other lunch-meats better, like sliced chicken, smoked turkey, and ham. I do have a problem with fried bologna. I haven't had it since I was a kid and always hated the smell of it. As I recall it smelled like someone whizzed in the frying pan.

Fried salami with provolone cheese.... ;D

Smoked baloney is a big deal here in Oklahoma.  It's not bad.

I haven't had it since I was a kid and always hated the smell of it. As I recall it smelled like someone whizzed in the frying pan.

There was a little store in our hometown that had a small meat counter. The old guy that ran it had a "log" of bologna (baloney as we called it) and would slice it to whatever thickness the customer wanted. I liked it thin and my dad liked it thicker. It was good on a sandwich with mayo, lettuce, and tomato.
You can still get it at walmart's deli, sliced as you want it.

I eat Spam now and then, and keep some on hand. I love to take it along camping as it does not need to be in the cooler.  I have not tried any of the other varieties, and I actually prefer Dak ham; hard to find around here at times.

If I remember correctly, Hawaii is the largest consumer of Spam.  Also, there are two items that spike in usage when times are tough, Spam and Peanut Butter. LOL

My grand babies are in Hawaii and according to my daughter, them kids love them some Spam.

I can't get by the old tale that the Samoans liked to feast on Spam.  Said it tasted like missionary.  The Hormel people made a special formulation of Spam for those down-island natives.  It had significantly more fat and at room temperature it would be liquid which allowed the Big Kahunas to drink it straight from the can.

My own theory is I can ALWAYS find something better to eat than Spam. 

But, if you have the need to eat missionary, go for it, boys.  As for me, I'll pass.
