Spam with rice and eggs is fine, classic pairing. Macadamia nuts with Spam flavoring is something new altogether.
I’ve been obsessing about where I can find myself a can of Spam-flavored macadamia nuts after I saw them available late last year. They couldn’t be ordered online until just recently. When they were finally available, I ordered up a few cans. Funny thing was that JustJenn had gone to Hawaii later that same week and sent me a can when she returned to Los Angeles. It was like she was reading my mind.
I love fried Spam with white rice and scrambled eggs, but Spam used as a flavoring for macadamia nuts is a bit of Spam overload. Much like how you need white as a side to fried Spam, the macadamia nut helps to counter the saltiness of the Spam flavor. It only kind of works. They are extremely salty and if it has the same shelf life as its hammy namesake, will come in handy when the year 3000 rolls around. Or maybe I’ll just integrate them into a Spam-flavored macadamia musubi.
You can order your own can here.
