Happy 75th Birthday, Spam


That's right, folks, America's favorite spiced ham in a can is celebrating its 75th birthday this July. If you've never cracked a can of the WWII-era staple, one way to start is by making spam musubi, a ridiculously simple creation composed of four ingredients: spam, rice, nori, and a sweet soy sauce. If musubi isn't quite your speed, feel free to consult Hormel Food's knight-cum-mascot Sir Can-a-Lot for recipes. Happy birthday, Spam. We're glad you're still in good health!
