Every year more and more trending pumpkin spice-flavored items hit the grocery shelves. Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts sell their famous pumpkin spice lattes, Nature's Path sells pumpkin spice waffles, and now it looks like Spam, the canned meat product that gained popularity during World War II is introducing Pumpkin Spice Spam to the world.
What Is Spam?
Made by Hormel Foods, Spam was introduced in 1937 as a way to increase the sales of pork shoulders. Then a few years later when World War II began and delivering fresh meat to the frontline proved to be a challenge, Spam became a staple item in the American soldier's diet. In total, over 150 million pounds of Spam were purchased by the US military before the war ended.
Today there are over 20 different varieties of the food brand with flavors such as Spam Teriyaki, Spam with bacon, and Spam hot and spicy.

Ok, I think we may have taken this trend TOO far. It's August, 15 and we've already started advertising fall products?! Oh-my-god! But, hold ya horses folks because this hot item doesn't get released till September, 23.#pumpkinspice #spamgonewild #pumpkinspicespam #pumpkinspicegonewild #spam
Available only on Spam.com and Walmart.com starting on September 23rd, Pumpkin Spice Spam will be taking center stage with its characteristic savory Spam flavor and a hint of sweetness from nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Some lucky tasters have already gotten the chance to taste the new Spam flavor and the general consensus is that it tastes pretty good! One taster commented that it tastes like breakfast sausage with sweet pumpkin spice.
Use this new Spam to make yourself a hearty breakfast sandwich or charge up your pumpkin spice game by serving up a fall vegetable hash alongside your PSL or coffee doctored up with pumpkin spice coffee creamer. We suggest cooking it on the stovetop and using it in your Sunday brunch frittatas to add a porky spam flavor with a hint of spice to your eggs.
