Burger King, McDonald's Launch Spam War, Literally

Hawaiians love Spam! They love it so much that McDonald’s offers it on their breakfast menu in Hawaii, and now Burger King is getting into the act. It’s a Spam war!

Burger King is now offering the Spam Platter—which is “two slices of Spam nestled between white rice and scrambled eggs.” You can also get a Croissanwich or Biscuit Sandwich with Spam.

The Spam Platter costs $3.49 at BK. McDonald’s Spam Platter (shown above) is almost identical, but is 10 cents cheaper.

Hawaiians consume 5 million pounds of Spam a year, about 6 cans per person. You can get lots of varieties of Spam in Hawaii, some of which we’d never even heard of.

“There’s Spam Garlic, Spam Bacon, Spam with Cheese, Spam with Tabasco, Spam Turkey and Spam Lite, which featured less sodium and less fat.” Who knew? Hawaiians, we assume. —MEGHANN MARCO
