There are currently 11 flavors of SPAM, from Jalapeño to Portuguese Sausage Seasoning; and, as limited editions for the holidays, Oven Roasted Turkey and Pumpkin Spice SPAM.
Now, SPAM is debuting a new holiday flavor, Figgy Pudding SPAM.
A few words on figgy pudding: It’s not what Americans think of as pudding. Rather, “pudding” is the British term for dessert. It can be anything sweet.
Figgy pudding is a steamed cake, soaked with brandy or rum and studded with dried fruit (dates, figs, plums). How much alcohol is in it? It’s often flambéed!
But back to the main topic.
Inspiration for the new flavor was a recent survey of 2,000 American adults. It revealed that 69% of consumers do know what Figgy Pudding is or have heard of it, but only 17% have had it.
Not surprising: It’s not really an American custom.
But that’s why the SPAM® Brand created its own fusion Figgy Pudding, giving SPAM the flavors of Figgy Pudding and adding another classic holiday flavor.
With both savory and sweet notes, SPAM® Figgy Pudding evokes a sense of nostalgia added as a slice with:
Also tune into a video animation of Santa and elves singing “We Wish You a Figgy Christmas” (And A SPAMTASTIC New Year!).
