Spam Slicer – A Spam Musubi Must-Have

Spam Slicer Food Fashionista

I'm not one for processed or mystery meat, but with a Japanese background and family in Hawaii, Spam was definitely a part of family gatherings growing up. I used to spend a lot of time in Hawaii, and along with Leonard's Malasadas and Matsumoto Shaved Ice, a Spam Musubi was part of the culinary check off list.

In recent times, I don't remember the last time I ate Spam, but at a family gathering in Northern California, my cousin Annie, knowing I'm obsessed with all things cookery and gadgety, busted out a Spam slicer to amuse me. The packaging was appropriately generic and the item resembled an egg slicer, but only in Spam form.

Spam Musubi

Spam musubi is a common and popular snack in Hawaii combining a teriyaki glazed slice of grilled spam atop a shaped chunky block of rice with seaweed wrapping. You can readily find it at casual convenience stores in Hawaii like ABC and 7-Eleven. Hawaiian families also commonly prepare it as a snack or party food.

If you are in the market for your own Spam slicer, purchase one on Ebay here…but hurry, they're going faster than a loco moco at Zippy's. Now if I could only find a slicer for the Spam in my inbox.
