The SPAM® Musubi: An Iconic Hawai‘i Dish
Comprised of a slice of fried and seasoned SPAM®, a block of white rice, and a ribbon of nori (seaweed), this simple and tasty treat is a staple of Hawaiian Island fare. But the SPAM® Musubi is more than just an ʻono snack; it is part of Hawaiʻi’s history. The pink product in a can was introduced to the Islands during World War II, when fresh meat was scarce. As years went on, Hawaiʻi residents created countless ways to utilize SPAM® in their meals, eventually securing SPAM® Musubi’s place in the Aloha State’s diverse culinary landscape.
