Our family loves Spam. We kids make sure our mom grabs Spam (or Spam Lite, which she prefers) so we would always have it on the stock in the pantry. That's why my jaws dropped when I read that Spam recently produced a limited edition Spam Tocino, inspired by another favorite Filipino breakfast, the Tocino.
Luckily, I found Spam Tocino in the supermarket a few days ago and cooked it right away.
How do you cook Spam Tocino? You cook like we cook Tocino: cook it in water.
Make sure that the water is enough to cover the slices. Cook until the water is reduced, then add a small amount of oil before serving.
The taste? It seems to be the sweet version of Spam. It amazed me how they cleverly combined the taste of tocino and spam. I got the verdict of the kids at home: my brother (who loves tocino) liked it, my sister (who loves Spam) didn't. I liked it, but I would still crave the original Spam anytime.
Spam Tocino is available at leading supermarkets. I bought mine at SM Supermarket at Php 105 each.
Note that it is limited edition so if you're curious about how it tastes, you should get one as soon as possible. ;)
