Default SPAM at Costco

I was at Costco (Santa Clara) yesterday they had SPAM for $13.99 The regular price is $17.99 minus $4 manufacturer's instant rebate.

This is the 25% less sodium version that Costco usually sells. There are 8 cans per bundle. Limit 2 rebates per customer. Expires Sunday 5/27.

Wow screamin deal. I'll be sure to grab some.

Works out to $1.75 a can and they last a long time. I know its not gourmet, but in a grid down scenario, this is a close to a rib eye as you'll get for some time.
For reference, they're $2.50, at the market when on sale. More at regular price.

Don't have to eat it since it can always become a trade commodity.

That is a great price. I usually stock up on the canned corned beef when they have a special. Guess I'll have to buy a few packs of Spam.

If it was good enough for Gramps while beating back the Yamatos in the Pacific during a SHTF event like WWII ,it's good enough for me.

Spam, pink slime before pink slime was cool.

I just want to point out that after always loving spam and being told it was full of unspeakable animal parts I actually watched a "how its made" show on Spam on history channel. It's just made by boiling all the pork shoulders to get the remaining meat bits off of them after they've made cold cuts out of the rest of the shoulder. Some guy actually came up with this idea that if you calculated the bajillion pork shoulders Hormel threw out every month with meat scraps all over em it adds up to a butt ton of meat. So.. boil boil boil, press slurry into can with salt.

And your point? It is still nasty . . . don't care if it has lobster and prime rib in it with a touch of cheese cake and fine wine. Still nasty!

BTW, how much is a butt ton?

Two things I wont eat. One is spam and the other is rocky road ice cream. I used to work as a pasteurizer at a milk plant and we dumped all the returns (sour milk and crap spoiled stuff) into the rocky road ice cream because the chunks hid the crap from being detected. I can imagine the stuff that gets dumped into the span pot. "Hey Joe just put that carcase you dropped on the floor into the pig poop into the spam pot". YUK!

I'm more worried at what they use in hotdogs than Spam.

Will go to Costco later.

A can of Smoked Spam Lite saved my life once. It's amazing how great things taste when you're starving.

My dad used to make us Spam all the time when I was a kid. Haven't had it in about 30 years. Does anyone know how long an unopened can lasts?

What is the date code and how is it interpreted on the food container?

The date code for products produced in the United States is most often printed on the bottom of each container to provide the following information:

The first letter indicates the manufacturing facility: S02057
The first two numbers indicate the month it was processed: S02057
The second set of two numbers indicate the day it was processed: S02057
The last number indicates the year it was processed: S02057

Example: date code printed is S02057

Interpretation: Produced in Stockton, California on February 5, 2007

Some imported canned products are manufactured in Brazil or Argentina which will contain a date code structure that is different from products produced in the United States. For assistance with foreign date codes or for any questions concerning our products, please call our consumer hot line number of 1-800-523-4635 anytime between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Central Standard time, Monday through Friday, or in the summer between 7:45 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Friday.

What is the expiration date on a can of Hormel Chili, Stagg Chili or any other Hormel Foods canned product?

For maximum flavor and freshness, we recommend use by the "Best By" date printed on our can. However, the shelf life of the product is indefinite as long as the seal remains intact, unbroken and securely attached to a can that has been well maintained. It is suggested that all canned products be stored in a cool and dry environment to keep the flavor adequately preserved. Our food is processed with a vacuum seal and is cooked at a high temperature which makes it a shelf stable item.

What is the shelf life of a Hormel Foods product in an unopened can?
The processing techniques utilized by Hormel Foods makes the canned product safe for use indefinitely if the product seal remains intact, unbroken and securely attached to a can that has been well maintained. It is suggested that all canned products be stored in a cool and dry environment to keep the flavor adequately preserved. For maximum flavor it is recommended that the product be used within three years of the manufacturing date. After that period of time, the product is still safe to use however, the flavor gradually declines.
