I've tried many, many variations of the homemade stuff, searching for the perfect mac & cheese .... and for me, it's Kraft.

I realize this makes me completely weird. I can live with that.

I'm having homemade mac and cheese (Dubliner, Parmesan and Romano cheeses) tonight. Tasty stuff.

Pasta with fresh vegetables and a little bit of prosciutto or porchetta is cheaper and nicer than spam.

Dubliner? Really? Keep it up, you will help to save the Irish economy from collapse.

Why are so quick to judge without knowing any information on these two food products?
Um, I had the misfortune of trying this food "product" once and it was really disgusting.

I don't eat Ramen either. Find it equally as disgusting.

All this talk about the economy - a 2 lb bag of lentils is like 99 cents. Why I'd eat SPAM instead is beyond me.

Spam is well-marketed processed rubbish.

In other words Spam is part of the problem with globalised capitalism, gang, not part of the solution.

I buy a (nearly) 1 pound block of Dubliner every few weeks and at $6.49 USD per pound, you are probably right about the Irish economy!

Veggies don't keep, that's the appeal of spam, ramen, k'mac.... plus ramen is 15 cents here. I doubt your pasta dish can beat that. I like ramen but rarely eat it. The sodium content alone is enough to make even a salt lover like me hesitate.

The typhoid fever comment was a low blow
Why are you so quick to judge that she doesn't know the information?

It has nothing to do with propaganda; it's unhealthy and disgusting.

Do you happen to own Spam stock or something?

The preservatives and chemicals found in many foods we eat are a lot more disgusting than Spam, yet not many people react with the same level of aversion to those elements.

I think the gelatinous part has a lot to do with that. It's not so much what goes into the product that elicits such a visceral response, it's the sliminess of the final product that does it.

Yeah, it's the taste/texture of it that's really gross to me.

But also, I grew up in a house where we weren't allowed to drink pop or eat anything that was canned, pre-prepared, etc. Even now, my parents still subsist on things like quinoa, bulgur, millet, oat flour, and on and on. My brother and I picked up pretty good habits from them.

The only thing I really struggle with is keeping fresh fruit/veggies because they do spoil really fast. If you live alone and you're busy so that you end up eating out a lot of nights, next thing you know, everything in the fridge has gone bad. I wish I had time to go get fresh stuff every couple of days, but that's just not realistic.

Are your parents characters from Charles Dickens? I'm just curious here.
