Hot(damn!) n Spicy Spam!

  • 5

Did you know there are flavors of that meaty treat called Spam? There's Bacon and Hot n Spicy (it's injected with Tabasco sauce!), to name two that I like. Alot. But I've only seen Hot n Spicy at the Marukai Market in Gardena. I live in Pasadena. You see the problem? Last time, I asked a friend to buy my five cans, thinking that would last me at least 5 months, but then my dad ate some at my house and took a can home and my aunt did too and before I knew it, I was down to 1 lonely can. Can anyone tell me where I can get it? I've looked at 168 and 99 Ranch in Alhambra with no luck. Forget about Ralphs and Vons.

  1. You try the Marukai in Little Tokyo?
    I usually get it at the one in Gardena too...even though I live near S.Pas.

        Yep! They have it at the Marukai in Little Tokyo. It's waaay down at the bottom of the shelf and the stock is not extensive, but it's there. I've also seen it in a store in K-Town. It's on Olympic with a Lee's Electronics Store in the same mini mall. Sorry, I don't know the name. Have never seen it in SGV.

          Try the Marukai on Azusa. Pretty sure they have a bunch of flavors in the Hawaii section.

        2. Have you tried online www.spam.com
          or
          www.marukaiestore.com/p-1172-hormel-s...

          Might be costly versus just driving down to Gardena to buy some.
          Costco and Sam's only sell the regular and low sodium.
          I haven't found the Macadamia Nut flavored spam yet...
