When Pigs Fly – SPAM® Bites

Make sure your seatbacks and tray tables are in their full upright positions, because the cheesy flavors in these SPAM® Bites are ready to take off. Finely chopped pecans will be served at cruising altitude. Prepare for bites landing in your mouth with ranch and blue cheese dip.
