There is a Spam food truck, and it's coming to Los Angeles. Let that nugget of golden information sink in, then feel free to do a happy dance.
Hormel, the company behind the Spam brand, is launching its first SPAMAMERICAN tour with a food truck. It will be making 12 stops across the country and is starting its Spam-tastic adventure in L.A.
The truck will be serving up dishes featuring Spam recipes by Food Network personality Sunny Anderson, including coconut Spam spears, along with recipes from local chefs at each stop. When the truck rolls into L.A., it will be serving kimchi Spam musubi croissants from Sharon Wang of Sugarbloom Bakery.
You can find the truck at the Costco in Alhambra from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday.
The truck will also be making a stop at the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix on Friday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Other stops on the tour include San Francisco, featuring Robert Lam's Spammy tots, and a stop in Chicago, with Kevin Hickey's Spam and Jack pretzel sandwich.
