To the younger readers out there, this might be something of a novelty. Spam you can eat? How is such a thing possible?
Well, I’m not talking about the e. mail kind of Spam. I’m talking about the gross-in-concept meat in a can kind of Spam. I have to admit, I’ve never tried the stuff, so I couldn’t tell you if it’s even marginally delicious. But I can tell you that in times of recession, Spam sells like hotcakes (like…meat cakes…?). It’s cheap and, in theory, healthy and, in theory, meat. On Thursday it was announced that Hormel as a company beat its profits forecast, mostly on strong sales of Spam and its Dinty Moore soups.
I don’t expect a great deal of long term growth in this area. But if you’re looking for a bridge job, or perhaps somewhere to advance, it wouldn’t hurt to check out their website.
