Lil Dude Troll heard about the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota and just had to go. Yes, Spam, king of the mystery meats, has its very own museum. Visitors by the thousands come each year to what is billed as "the world’s most comprehensive collection of spiced pork artifacts."
After touring the fascinating museum and learning all kinds of things about Spam, such as the fact that 44,000 cans of it are produced each and every hour, you can shop for Spam-branded items in the gift shop. From cans of Spam to Spam-logo'd tennis balls to Spam-branded bowling shirts to glow-in-the-dark Spam-branded underwear, it's all there for purchase.
Lil Dude says if you happen to be anywhere near Austin, Minnesota, you should take a couple of hours to check out this free and funner-than-expected product museum!
(The Spam Museum closed Sept. 28, 2014 in preparation for a move into an all-new, larger facility. Planned re-opening is scheduled for Spring, 2016. The gift shop remains open at the old site for your shopping pleasure)
