To cleanse the palate, I can't help but watch this news through the Jeffrey Epstein saga prism.
How can we, a culture capable of producing something like Pumpkin Spice Spam, dare to judge someone else's perversion?
Who is the target demographic for this product? Spam is the lowest of low-rented meat options in the supermarket; Pumpkin spice is a taste preferred by the type of person who is willing to spend eight dollars on a cup of coffee. Go lowbrow or go middlebrow, but you can't go both at the same time. It's like marketing a Lincoln with stainless steel truck nutz welded to the back.
A publicist for Hormel Foods Corp. confirmed to NBC News Wednesday that the company will begin selling a limited edition of Pumpkin Spice Spam online at walmart.com and spam.com September 23.
Hormel first came up with the idea two years ago in a hoax Facebook post. But this time, Hormel swears that the product is real.
"True to the brand's roots, SPAM® Pumpkin Spice combines deliciousness with creativity, and allows the latest variant to be integrated into a variety of dishes, from trendy brunch recipes to a simple, fetch me snack," an e-

While this is one of the more distinctive pumpkin spice products on the market, surprisingly enough, the general consensus was that the taste was really not bad. It certainly had the soft texture that anyone with spam will get to know, as well as the expected salty, piggy junk flavor. Cinnamon, cloves, spices and nutmeg shared the middle stage with the rich and savory Spam flavor, but with a hint of sweetness.
"It reminds me of breakfast sausage," said a taster. "Honestly, some eggs and waffles will go well."
Is this really that different from sprinkling some maple syrup on your bacon after you've cooked a morning pile of pancakes? It's obviously a breakfast meat. No one suggests putting it between two slices of rye and slice on a mustard.
As a low-born idiot who will still sometimes pay eight bucks at Starbucks for an elaborate caffeinated milkshake, I'll order it and I'll enjoy it. If you really want to apologize for an abominable food, start with this. That's what we get for teaching millennials how to grow fruits and vegetables.
