get out of my head... I was about to post the same thing

"The 78 McDonald's outlets in Hawaii have begun test-marketing a breakfast meal that consists of egg, rice and Spam.
Spam has been a laughing matter on the mainland since babyboomers were babies, but the Hormel product made from pork parts is staggeringly popular in Hawaii, which has the highest Spam consumption per capita of any state.
Spam musubi ("moo-soo-BEE"), consisting of a strip of cooked Spam sitting on a block of rice and held in place by a sushi-style seaweed girdle, is a popular breakfast food and lunchtime or picnic snack.
Hawaii residents are mystified by the scorn that mainlanders heap on Spam until they hear that many mainlanders first tried in as a lunchmeat, sliced cold. In Hawaii it is never served that way but is always cooked.
McDonald's says it will serve Spam for breakfast through the end of July and then decide if it is selling well enough to add to a menu that already includes rice, Portuguese sausage (another Hawaii favorite -- Portuguese sailors, mostly from the Canary Islands, were among the first non-indigenous people to take up residence in Hawaii) and saimin."

of course this was back in 02, but they still serve it.

Hormel Foods > SPAM® family of products

 

Seventy Years and Counting

The first can of SPAM® luncheon meat was produced in 1937 in Austin, Minn. From the beginning, SPAM® was unique—it stood alone in its low price, convenience and delicious taste. It immediately became America’s favorite luncheon meat, and by 1941, 40 million pounds of SPAM® had been sold.

 

With America’s entry into World War II, SPAM® luncheon meat was called into action overseas. With Allied forces fighting to liberate Europe, we provided 15 million cans of luncheon meat to troops every week. SPAM® luncheon meat became an essential item in soldiers’ diets, often serving as the last line of defense between battle-weary soldiers and starvation. Following the war, world leaders the likes of Dwight Eisenhower, Margaret Thatcher and Nikita Khrushchev all credited SPAM® luncheon meat for its role in the Allied victory.
