Spam has become an iconic brand that traditionally offers canned meats but recently unveiled its newest product -- Spam snacks. The fresh product will be hitting shelves this month to bring consumers a more convenient and accessible meat snack.
The new snacks are packaged in bright blue bags and are being labeled as "dried spam bites." There are a few different flavors of these meat chunks, which include bacon, teriyaki and classic.
The canned meats will still be available of course but the brand is now catering to a wider audience. Those with on-the-go lifestyles will find these Spam snacks and ideal mid-day treat. While the snacks will only be on shelves in specific locations such as Hawaii, the brand hopes to release the tasty treats on a global scale in the near future.
