Posh scrapple doesn't count. This is a gross meat throwdown, no high-end versions are competing. Hey, I wonder if we can talk Charleen Badman into Frankensteining up for Spam for LNL-? Sounds yummy.

Bracket # 2 of the Convenience Food Death Match is live-! Spout off or sit down and shut up. This is a poll, so look at it on a real browser, okay? Only poll votes count.

Mustard and/grape jelly with scrapple.

But being from MN, Spam wins.

Okay, so, I have never witnessed Scrapple, properly prepared, on a plate. Is it fried up with a crispy crust, like a meat hash brown? Are the mustard and jelly mixed together, like that 1950s "Swedish" meatball dish?

Mmmm, lovely SPAM. Especially in musubi. I ever make it to a PHXFN potluck, remind me that I agreed to bring a big honking platter of them.

Key to SPAM deliciousness is that it must be crisped in a pan before doing anything else with it. If you skip that step, the flavor and texture are off-putting at best.

I must confess, I've never had either, at least to my knowledge (although God knows what was force-fed me as a child in Michigan...).

So I feel I am not qualified to vote. But: GROSS.

I like that Spam Misubi sits out in convenience store check out counters un-refrigerated. Truly a convenience or death situation.

The sodium kills the bacteria-! Very few halophilic bacterial strains out there.

That Spam with the Playa dust all over it looks disgusting... (Of course, from what I understand, Playa dust is not pleasant in any form...)

Anywho... I was up with Arden at his 5 a.m. feeding watching the ABC 15 morning news... This commercial came on and I thought it was good timing... Also, who are they targeting at 5 a.m.?



I'm not a huge fan of ham in my mac and cheese and I don't know if Spam would be much better...

For better or worse, it causes your hair to freeze solid about 18 hours in -- like, three cans of Aqua Net solid. And five years later, you'll still be finding small piles of it in your car.
