The smell of SPAM and the click that goes with opening that little royal blue can elicit the type of cult craze you’d expect to surround a performance by a favorite band. People profess their undying love, can’t get enough and will buy any and all SPAM-related merchandise available.

Hormel, the maker of Spam, offers its fans a slew of products such as hats, air fresheners and even beach balls. But the official Hormel-licensed SPAM product that will have devotees licking their lips? Hands down, the SPAM lip glaze.


You no longer have to settle for expressing your passion with something traditional like a T-shirt. Spam enthusiasts can get closer than ever to their favorite processed meat product by smearing the taste of Spam on their lips anytime the craving hits. It might be a poor substitute for a piece of Spam musubi, but the lip gloss is definitely lower-cal.

The lip glaze contains coconut and mineral oil in addition to its Spam flavor.
