The Makers of the SPAM® Brand Celebrate Fall with Limited Edition SPAM® Pumpkin Spice

AUSTIN, Minn., Sept. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Get ready pumpkin lovers. Today, the makers of the SPAM® brand announced the launch of limited edition SPAM® Pumpkin Spice. SPAM® Pumpkin Spice offers a new take on the fall fan favorite trend allowing customers to look beyond lattes and donuts and celebrate pumpkin spice in a whole new way.

Although the new variety may sound too good to be true, it's true. The makers of the iconic SPAM® brand have created a flavor that can be incorporated into a variety of craveable recipes perfect for fall, including sweet and savory waffles, decadent grilled cheeses and fall hashes. The new variety features a blend of seasonal spices including cinnamon, clove, allspice and nutmeg to give it a subtle sweetness. While fitting for any meal, consumers are finding SPAM® Pumpkin Spice to be the perfect breakfast companion with frittatas, egg sandwiches and breakfast burritos.

'SPAM® fans have been waiting four years since our last new variety debut, so we are happy to introduce a two-pack of SPAM® Pumpkin Spice for a limited time,' said Jason Hron, SPAM® brand manager. 'Early reviews from consumers note the product is a mix of rich savory flavors with a hint of sweetness, making it a perfect and easy answer for those warm flavor cravings in the fall.'

Starting at approximately7 a.m. CDT on Sept. 23, SPAM® Pumpkin Spice will be available for a limited time only and while supplies last for purchase on Walmart.com and SPAM.com in two-packs.
