Having seen key-cans in old cartoons, the face of my eldest lit up when he saw his opportunity to give it a shot in my kitchen several years ago. I let him, and it wanted to go all crooked on him, too, but he managed to succeed. It just struck me as so amusing, because I remember being younger, seeing the cartoon-cans and wishing I could get the chance to do that too.

    Some old-fashioned stuff is cool to still have around. The corned beef cans aren't "broke," so I hope nobody fixes 'em!

    Back OT, I much prefer the pop-top Spam can they make now, but given the rounded bottom edges of the current can, it would seem near-impossible to convert the can into a musubi press, like you could do with the older-style cans. Thankfully, I have one of those double-sized acrylic molds for Spam musubi-making.

    Some sardine cans still have the "key peeler" to take the lids off.

    Sorry... I just spammed this thread

    LOL---perfect key-can opening on the first try!

    As a kid, the biggest key-cans I opened were five-pound cans of Krakus Polish ham.

    It seemed to take forever. You needed great focus to keep that metal strip from running down off the key into a skinny spiral, which would then force you to unroll the mess and work it back onto the key and try again. Better than shearing the metal strip off, though. You were doomed if that happened any sooner than three-quarters of the way through.

    Anyone else remember when cans of ground coffee were opened with a key, too?

    I wound up making Spam Katsu Curry last week. Was ono. My brother, his brother-in-law and I had grind. Thanks for the tips. I figured after I posted that, 7 Eleven probably put it in the sauce before they top it. Taste good with da bacon spam.

    HILLS BROTHERS and MJB coffee were sold in the big cans. Also, GHIRADELLI cocoa (chocolate) powder.

    The canned hams, up to 5 lbs., also had keys. ARMOUR STAR; HORMEL; CUDAHAY BAR-S; DUBUQUE; RATH BLACK HAWK ........

    We opened them very carefully to avoid getting cut.

    Aaahh!!! Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I just love Spam so much, I couldn't resist. I usually give my kindergarten son sandwiches to take for his lunch but one day I sent him with a spam musubi. His teacher practically begged me to make some for her the next time I make for him. She didn't ask for only one...she wants like five Maybe for her other teacher friends??? Everytime I see her...she hints, hints, hints at me for her fried spam musubi

    BTW here in SF, I can get it one sale for 1.99 at RiteAid or Walgreens. Its Like 3.69 regular Price
    Foodland in Kaneohe I got it for 1.29 each with the coupon a couple months ago. I bought 10 cans, and still not enough

    Judging by the results of the poll...

    I'm a minority on the enjoying Spam thing.... I can't stand it any way it's cooked. I think it reminds me of Bologna and I can't stand that either.

    Question... How does my two year old son know that he doesn't like it... when he's never had it before?

    Because they don't call that age the "terrible twos" for nothing. Every other word is "NO". My guess is if he ever tasted it, he would probably like it, though. If you called it "chopped ham" he might think it was OK, and if he was on a desert island with nothing but cans of Spam, he certainly would eat it (that, and vienna snausage...both staples in Hawai'i).

    Scary... he won't eat Vienna sausage either!!! He's a very picky eater...and he has nibbled on both... he just doesn't like it!
    He sure seems to like the expensive stuff though at least he likes rice and saimin.

    I just wish I could get him to eat the spams, the vienna sausage, etc.
    The closest thing that I've found that he does like in this junk kine category is Hot Dogs!

    I could start a whole new topic on Kids foods alone
