ND Must Have Been Naughty As MN Sends Us Figgy Spam!
Yes Virginia there is a Santa Clause. And he hates you!
Full disclosure, I don't mind Spam. Maybe once every couple of years. But it has to be fried. I'm talking crispy-black kinda fried. I'm pretty sure I currently have a can in my cupboard that's been there from a previous decade. I'm also pretty sure IT DOESN'T HAVE FIGS IN IT!
Actually, who can actually be "pretty sure" what's actually in Spam?
Austin Minnesota's Spam brand will probably land another hit for the holidays with their new figgy pudding flavored Spam. It follows the 2019 release of pumpkin spice Spam. Don't laugh, it sold out in about seven hours. So if you want your figgy pudding flavor Spam you best get online NOW at Walmart.com, Amazon.com or of course Spam.com.
The hosts of WUSA9 have a hard time wrapping their heads around it

Like so many old-timey holiday dishes, figgy pudding has traditionally been made with suet. Sure beef fat isn't the first ingredient I'd consider for pudding, but who knew gelatin was made from cow parts?
Gelatin is made from animal collagen — a protein that makes up connective tissues, such as skin, tendons, ligaments, and bones. The hides and bones of certain animals — often cows and pigs — are boiled, dried, treated with a strong acid or base, and finally filtered until the collagen is extracted.
Look at it this way, now it's not only just your better-than-thou friends and family members who can whip up a snooty charcuterie board. You, my friend, can now prepare one for the common people!
Welcome to the high-class world, you've earned it!
With tongue-in-cheek and cans flying off the shelf, Spam.com wrapped their new creation in holiday cheer! With a YouTube animation campaign. Let's all enjoy "We Wish You A Figgy Christmas"! It's cute and it's short.
