The last time we had Spam was perhaps 12 or so years ago - it was sliced very thin and fried until it was crisp - much like bacon. As I said it's been a long time and I can still remember it being very salty.
They make a low sodium one now along with a bunch of other varieties.
There are several different flavors of Spam products, including:
Spam Classic – original flavor
Spam Hot & Spicy – with Tabasco
Spam Less Sodium – "25% less sodium"[
Spam Lite – "33% less calories and 50% less fat" – made from pork shoulder meat, ham, and mechanically separated chicken
Spam Oven Roasted Turkey
Spam Hickory Smoke flavor
Spam Spread – "if you're a spreader, not a slicer ... just like Spam Classic, but in a spreadable form"
Spam with Bacon
Spam with Cheese
In addition to the variety of flavors, Spam is sold in tins smaller than the twelve-ounce standard size.
Spam Singles are also available, which are single sandwich-sized slices of Spam Classic or Lite, sealed in retort pouches
