    Lifelong American & the only one I've heard of is the deviled ham. I know of Spam but not 'spreadable' spam. It's all pretty gross but here's a hint: Stir it after you open it so you won't see the coagulated jelly bits. After that, throw it in the trash & go get a hamburger.

    I would not eat any of these meats because they're gross - but the deviled ham at least (and likely the others) is meant to be mixed with a condiment (usually mustard or mayo) and put on a sandwich, not put on a cracker like it's a fancy pate. Straight out of the can is going to be concentrated pure salt.

    Sorry but I'm not eating something that comes in the same can and looks exactly like what I feed my cat. Wouldn't surprise me if that crap was made in the same factory. That being said, I do love me some sardines. Can't eat them at home though, the cat goes apeshit when I open a can of those things, bastard won't leave me alone.

    For me the over reaction and constant bad language, which would work much better as empathis, are taking about of the fun out of watching these. At least my autistic grandson has reasons for his the occasional time he'll try something new to eat.

    Latinos like me, we love the last one, deviled should always ALWAYS GO ON TOAST NOT A FOOKING CRACKER! Also so you know the yellow stuff is the fat from the ham, you can either mix it all together or like I do, scrap it away...but again it NEEDS TO GO ON TOAST!!

    The letters stand for Spiced Ham and was created just prior to WWII but that spread is not something I've seen.

    I remember when I was a child in the 70s having sandwiches made with spam, potted meat, and devilled ham (not all in the same sandwich). They were better than bologna, which isn't saying much.

    American canned meat is worse than dog food and their dog food is chemical shite. A lot of American food you find in the stores is completely devoid of recognizable normalcy, flavor, or quality. In fact, it isn't really food. It's laboratory created chemical shite masquerading and advertised as food.

    Underwood Chicken is actually really good...the best product that Underwood Makes. Also, I would try spreadable corned beef, as they tend to be pretty good. I'm personally a big fan of canned formed meats in general (Teriyaki Spam is phenomenal), so I'm actually well-versed in all of these products.

    Most of those canned meat to the Irish people and I love the Irish people the American canned Meats are a survival can food in the event of an emergency where one must or provisions in an emergency this is what they are used for however the canned spam you removed from the can is slice it in thin slices and fry it by itself or if with a little olive oil or butter until Brown you can serve it on dark bread with a heavy grain mustard and some onion it's not that bad I've had it for 30 years but to each his own I just finished a bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey it may not be the top of the line but I like Irish whiskey bon appetit
