    I did when I was a kid and then I didn't. I haven't tried it in a very long time.

    My friend is in Hawaii and has been e-mailing me photos of Spam sushi (they look huge; size of your palm huge). I believe Hawaiins are the largest consumers of Spam.

    When I was a kid, my mom would make Spam sandwiches. She mashed the Spam then mixed it with mayo and sweet relish.

    Spam sushi is da bomb yo!!! :p

    I like a spam sandwich every once in awhile.

    Oh, I like to cut it up and put it in my Top Ramen. I crack an egg into it too and if I have some I'll add a bit of kim chee. Then I have a noodle dinner with protein, and a spicy kick!

    I really like it. I used to eat it occasionally, but haven't in abotu 10+ yrs. I'd dice it up when I made fried rice mainly. It's just got too much sodium.

    ICK - but my great-grandmother would put mustard and brown sugar on the outside like a ham and bake it.

    Spam and taters are good. :) YUM! Spam sandwiches, too. But I don't fix them too often.

    My 10th grade history teacher told us his grandfather wouldn't touch Spam, because he grew up in the Depression and that's all the meat they had.

    Never have eaten it, would like to keep that trend going, personally.

    For you Spam fans, though, you might want to check their website- you can join the Spam fan club.

    My mom used to fix it fried with pineapple and I loved it. She'd throw the pineapple in the frying pan for a few minutes with the the spam. I haven't eaten it in probably 15 years though - so I couldn't tell you if I like it now or not!
