The newest SPAM variety is currently available on the Wal-Mart website. Those who are looking to sample some may want to move quickly, so that they are not left out. The SPAM figgy pudding is only going to be available for a limited time only. You are going to want to snag a can before it vanishes from the shelves for good, both in stores and online.

The canned meat is sweet and savory. According to a press release, the pork product is made with a blend of seasonal ingredients and warm spices. There are all sorts of Christmas-themed flavors found in each can as well. Additionally, there are notes of orange, fig, nutmeg, and cinnamon to be found.

We are sure that there are some readers who are wondering how they would even use this product. If you are looking to get the most out of your figgy pudding, we are here to help. All you need to do is head to the SPAM website and they will provide you with the necessary assistance.

You can make some SPAM Figgy Pudding Holiday Skewers, if that is your speed. That is not all that SPAM has to offer, though. Perhaps you would prefer to create your own SPAM Figgy Pudding Holiday Charcuterie Board? Or maybe you are looking to whip up a Spiced Dutch Baby Pancake with SPAM Figgy Pudding and Cranberry Butter? Either way, there are no shortage of options to be enjoyed here.

“SPAM Figgy Pudding represents how one dish creates new interpretations of traditions, each leaving their own mark, just as the Spam Brand has done since 1937,” said vice president of marketing for the Spam Brand Steve Venenga in the press release.

Amazon and Wal-Mart both have limited availability, so if you want to try it out, we suggest you move fast.
