In what has to rank near the top of anyone's list for either most delicious-sounding or most disgusting flavor of the year, Hormel brand SPAM announced that it has already sold out of the limited edition pumpkin spice flavor. The fall-themed/tasting canned meat went on sale online only and was gone in a matter of hours yesterday.

According to a press release the limited edition online only flavor was gone in about 7 hours after being available at 7 A.M. The press release went on to say:

"SPAM® Pumpkin Spice is a celebration of the flavors of fall and the brand's latest variety to debut in four years. The limited edition flavor features a blend of seasonal spices including cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg to give it a subtle sweetness. SPAM® Pumpkin Spice can be incorporated to several warm recipes, ranging from grilled cheeses to fall hashes." - Hormal Press Release

If you read that blurb it states that the canned meat would be a perfect pairing with, grilled cheese or a fall hash. <gag> Not for me. Hot ham and cheese? Yes. Hot pumpkin spice and cheese? Nope

Have no fear if you just enjoy the regular flavor of SPAM or one of the other 14 flavors as there are still plenty of those available both online and in retail stores.
