Lilly is here... The party can start
Brian is looking for spam sliders... really!
Did You Know? - Spam was introduced by Hormel in 1937. Ken Daigneau, brother of a company executive, won a $100 prize that year in a competition to name the new item.
Hormel claims that the meaning of the name "is known by only a small circle of former Hormel Foods executives", but popular beliefs are that the name is an abbreviation of "spiced ham" or "shoulders of pork and ham".
Another popular explanation is that Spam is an acronym standing for "Specially Processed American Meat".
