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.
Nuts packed in shipping peanuts is a funny sight. But these actually sound pretty good.. 🙂
Heh… I never thought of it that way! It is good but in small amounts at least for me. Maybe I just had a can that was overly dusted with Spam powder.
Wow, I know what the hubby is getting for his birthday!!!
Shipment was really fast when I ordered them online and actually left for the post office the same day I placed the order. I love Hawaii time!
Thanks for the nuts!
Surely I must purchase these for someone for Christmas. I don’t know who yet, but someone.
Maybe for yourself? It’s worth a taste…
Wow, I had no idea this flavor of mac nuts existed.
These are the things I do when I have some downtime: look for unique food combinations.
hi darlene – i would totally eat those! ha ha, that has got to be the BEST flavor of mac nutz EVER!
better than the chocolate ones too! unless the company combined them to make chocolate cover spam macadamia nutz!
i heard about these from a podcast i subscribe to, The Impulsive Buy
Here’s a link to Marvo’s review (the dude is from Hawaii):
I would totally pimp these in chocolate for an ultra flavor combination! Thanks for the review. It seems like the guy really like them too.
I love macadamia nuts and I love Spam, but this does not soind good to this Hawaii-raised girl…
