As we get closer to Christmas, you may find yourself singing along to Christmas carols.  Perhaps one of your favorites is "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".  In that song, the lyrics "Make Us Some Figgy Pudding" are sung.  What is figgy pudding? It is a rich boiled pudding made with flour, suet, figs, and other dried fruit, traditionally eaten at Christmas. Some call it cakes, some call it pudding.

I have no idea if this is something that tastes good or bad,  but Spam is betting on at least a few people wanting to try their 'Figgy Pudding' flavored product for the holiday. I cannot believe I actually typed out that sentence.

If this is something you would like to try, two-packs are available for a limited time on Amazon for $10.  It is also available at Walmart.com.  If they are actually sold out, (really? people are buying this thing?) you can go to SPAM.com.

Now, seasonal stunt products have become all the rage, so when Spam released a pumpkin spice variety in the fall of 2019, the pork flavored product (and that is the main ingredient in this figgy pudding flavored one ) was more following the pack than going out on a limb. But what was unexpected was just how successful that launch ended up being: Pumpkin Spice Spam sold out in about seven hours.

"The variety features cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice and cloves, along with popular winter flavor profiles like fig and orange flavors," Spam writes in its announcement. You can get more info HERE.

So would you actually try this? Maybe get this as a gag gift for someone?  It would not surprise me if this item sells out.  Feels live a novelty item, that you just may need to have.
