At least one company is happy about rising food prices: SPAM sales are soaring as consumers are turning more to the much maligned meat to extend their already stretched food budget!
Kimberly Quan, a stay-at-home mom of three who lives just outside San Francisco, has been feeding her family more Spam in the last six months as she tries to make her food budget go further.
She cooks meals like Spam fried rice and Spam sandwiches two or three times a month, up from once a month previously.
Pulling Spam from the shelf prevents last-minute grocery store trips and overspending, said Quan, 38, of Pleasanton, Calif.
“It’s canned meat and it’s in the cupboard and if everything else is gone from the fridge, it’s there,” she said.
