Don’t you dare say that NOW they’ve gone too far.
Hormel Foods announced Monday that it is “allowing customers to look beyond lattes and donuts” by introducing a pumpkin spice version of Spam.
The Austin, Minnesota-based global food giant said Spam Pumpkin Spice will be available as a limited edition product and sold online only at Walmart.com and Spam.com beginning at 8 a.m. Monday.
“Although the new variety may sound too good to be true, it’s true,” Hormel said. “The makers of the iconic SPAM brand have created a flavor that can be incorporated into a variety of craveable recipes perfect for fall, including sweet and savory waffles, decadent grilled cheeses and fall hashes.”

True to form, Hormel included a recipe for “Spam Pumpkin Spice, Apple and Cheddar Grilled Cheese with Carmelized Onions.” Make sure you cook the Spam Pumpkin Spice slices for three to five minutes or until they’re browned.
Mouth watering yet?
Apparently Spam Pumpkin Spice “features a blend of seasonal spices including cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg” and is particularly good as a breakfast item.
