Rachel Baxter is a food blogger based in North Yorkshire, and when we made her aware of our delicious SPAM™apés she decided to create her own.
It’s 1937. In the year that President D.Roosevelt pushed the button to signal the first traffic over the Golden Gate Bridge, President of Hormel foods, Jay Hormel, pressed the button to start the production line of a great innovation. Ground pork shoulder and ham, cooked in a can then sealed to create one of the first ‘long life’ meat product. Perhaps even he couldn’t have foreseen just how long-lived the SPAM® Brand would become.
In the UK we’ve gone through a World War, 2 monarchs, 14 different Prime Ministers and 17 England Football Team Managers.
