    BK and Mickey D's serve spam in Hawaii and several really nice restaurants have Spam dishes. There are some delicious, very mean SPAM sandwiches.

    I'm weird. I love potted meats and a lot of canned stuff that sophisticated folks turn their noses up at.

    I heard on a radio talk show, (so take it for what it is worth) That on many items the best by date is there not because the food is bad on that date, rather that the manufacturer believes that after that date the food tastes will be degraded below what they want their brand associated with.

    Those dates are very conservative,I have canned food that is 8+ years old and no problem at all.'08.
