Hormel Foods has announced the national availability of a new SPAM® Teriyaki flavor, hoping to capitalize on the emergence of the SPAM Musubi dish on mainland U.S. menus. SPAM Teriyaki is inspired by the rising popularity of Asian and Island cuisine, and specifically that of Musubi — a slice of fried SPAM® Teriyaki and rice wrapped in nori (seaweed).
SPAM Teriyaki is available in supermarkets nationwide, and with this introduction, the SPAM family of products now offers 12 different varieties in the U.S., including recent additions of chorizo and jalapeño. Furthermore, SPAM has also launched a new flavor in the Phillippines — SPAM Tocino — that will also be available for purchase on SPAM.com. Tocino is a sweetened cured pork dish with Spanish influence.
