Tomorrow's Tasteoff

Treet & Spam

Treet vs. Spam. Tomorrow at lunch we put them to the test. Which is the better mystery meat?

If you wish to play along, just aquire one or both of these products. We're going to try them tomorrow around lunch time, and I'll write up the results sometime before the weekend. You can add your own observations in the comments.

I guess this would qualify as "fair warning."

We used to have Spam once in a while when I was a kid. If you like the taste of meat-flavored salt, Spam is for you.

I've never had Treet. I was unaware of its existence till about very recently.

The intentional misspelling was a very poor choice; "treet" implies "not treat" and it also suggests "not meat."

I remember eating canned corned beef as a kid and liking it. Would you consider adding this third element to your taste-off?

Somehow, canned corned beef makes me feel a little ill.

Sounds perfect! I'll try to pick some up for the tasteoff.

Yay!

Pass!

This product comes from completely sustainable farms, right? Grass-fed, er, whatever "meet" it's made from?

Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!

Actually, it's people. Oh, no, wait--that's Soylent Green.

I believe the snouts grow on a vine, so there's no corn involved at all.

Wholesome, 100% USDA Choice, emulsified lips and assholes.

Way better than "potted meat food product".

You should make a sandwich with both of them. Call it TRAM ... or SPEET ... or SPEEM ...or SPAT.

We had the tasteoff. I need only write it up now.

It's on its way.

I'm glad it didn't kill you. :)
