Apparently, Spam is Getting a Flavor Makeover and it's Pumpkin Spice!


According to CNN, the new product, which started as a somewhat of a joke, will be available at Wal-Mart and as soon as September 23, just in time for the fall, all things pumpkin spice food frenzy.


While just the thought of pumpkin spiced Spam may turn up most noses, Daily Mail shared that a few of their staff sampled the limited -edition goods, and well, it was good. One person said the taste was similar to maple breakfast sausage.


So, what's the deal? How is the pumpkin spice season still gaining momentum? Longwood University assistant professor of psychology Catherin Franssen told CNN in 2017, "Sugar and pumpkin spice are an addictive combination that the brain learns to crave. And with seasonal marketing from pumpkin spice pushers like Starbucks, brains and bodies begin to associate autumn and comfort with the flavor."


I guess we can say, it's all in our head. Our own neurology created this new Spam?

  • Unless you've been in a hole for the last month, you have heard about the rave and crave following the release of fast food chain Popeye's Chicken's new chicken sandwich. People waiting in line for hours, cars wrapped around buildings, and restaurant doors decorated with "WE ARE SOLD OUT OF THE CHICKEN SANDWICH" signs all across the U.S. Well, KFC refused to be left behind. Not only did they release their new chicken sandwich, but they've one-upped the caloric game by partnering with Atlanta native doughnuts mega chain, Krispy Kreme to produce the fried chicken sandwich on a doughnut bun. Yep, you've guessed it D.C. is on the list of the first metro areas to offer it on their local store menus.
