Hawaiian Company Adds Spam Flavored Macadamia Nuts
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm David Greene.
Spam brings two things to mind: unwanted email or that gelatinous, pre-cooked meat product you find at the store. Well, some people would rather see both in the trash. But many people like eating Spam and now, there's a new way to do it.
