Hawaii Special Edition SPAM Can Coming Soon
Honolulu, Hawaii, July 25, (DHN) – Visitors to Hawaii have long been fascinated by the 50thState’s infatuation with the canned meat SPAM. McDonald’s here in Hawaii have long served SPAM on its breakfast menu. Burger King even got in on the craze in 2007 at their island stores. We even have cookbooks here dedicated to cooking with SPAM! And of course, if you walk into a Hawaii 7-11 convenience store you will inevitably see SPAM musubi stacked in neat little rows (SPAM musubi’s are a Hawaiian delicacy consisting of a brick of rice, slice of SPAM fried in teriyaki sauce and wrapped in seaweed). Hormel Foods, the makers of SPAM, recently held a Hawaii SPAM label design contest for their new 25% less sodium SPAM can. The winner was announced at the Waikiki SPAM Jam in April, a huge block party that shuts down Kalakaua Avenue and features bands and all the SPAM you can eat. The winner, Scott Kaneshiro (an art director for The Madden Corporation) won with his design of a hand holding a SPAM musubi and throwing the shaka. The new reduced sodium can of SPAM goes on sale exclusively in Hawaii on August 1, so if you are looking for a rare souvenir here on vacation, SPAM might be the way to go.
