Hmmmmmm....... SPAM.


just kidding, don't eat pork

Accoding to Hormel's web site, there’s a variety of SPAM with bacon in it. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen it in stores, along with the elusive hickory-smoked, black-pepper, cheese, hot-and-spicy, and jalapeño flavors. I wonder what part of the country get those varieties if not us.

… Hold up, those are available on Amazon. I might be mail-ordering some SPAM.

I don't like turkey bacon.

I love turkey sausage, though. Chicken sausage too.

Turkey bacon tastes like smoked turkey to me (go figure) which is nice and all... But it's not bacon.

If you close your eyes and imagine hard enough, SPAM is whatever you want it to be. So, yeah, SPAM is healthier than pork. :thumb:

At least the folks at MLE are taking this seriously.

“We cannot, in good conscience, allow Joey Chestnut to eat bacon during a global pork shortage,” said MLE President Richard Shea. “We estimate that Joey alone could eat 20 pounds of bacon in 10 minutes of competition.”

Has anyone seen those shows about large numbers of feral hogs in Texas and other areas. Some of these are 500 pouners. Seems like there shouldn't be a bacon shortage in America.
If they learn to genetically engineer carp to taste like bacon Linesville can become a wealthy area.

I guess back in the 1870s they didn't think there'd ever be a bison shortage either.

http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/09/24/as_global_pork_shortage_looms_will_china_open_its_strategic_pork_reserve

As FP noted last year in our food issue, after a disease outbreak forced millions of pigs to be slaughtered in 2008, driving prices through the roof, the government established a "strategic pork reserve," maintaining "icy warehouses around the country stocked with frozen pork that can be released during times of shortage."

For now, China's pork supplies are ample, but if global pig prices start to rise during China's politically sensitive leadership transition, could we see Beijing releasing reserve pork onto the market?


China has a 'Strategic Pork Reserve' and we don't? We pumped all that oil into the Gulf salt domes when we should have been filling them with delicious ham and bacon. :face:
