I think of the movie sling blade. I was at the dollar tree tonight getting some treats like candy's and snacks to send to my nieces at college and I saw cans of it. Is it any good?

It's salty meat off cuts/byproduct pureed with spices. Think of it as really, REALLY, low end paté.

In all honesty, it's really not all that bad, but it's nothing I would specifically ever go look for.

It is what people lived on during WWII rations, and something lots of people today will be grateful to know/understand/have when WWIII arrives.

CODDLED folks these days have NO idea how to survive without A/C, refrigeration, cell phones, and ATM/DEBIT terminals.....

SPAM and potted meat are not the same.

Potted meat can be any meat, or any mix of meat. SPAM is exclusively a pork product.

Having lived in HI, I still get hankerings for a SPAM musubi, or just a pan fried SPAM sandwich.

Potted meat, well, I'd eat it, but I never get a hankering for it.

Also, they differ greatly texturally.

Potted meat can be a lot of different things, but it looks like you're talking about the Armour or Hormel canned potted meat. Those are basically a low end pate, made from meat scraps that are mechanically removed from the the carcasses of chickens, with maybe some beef organ meat tossed in. They add some spices and curing salt to it and then cook it. It's not awful, but also nothing to write home about.

Sometimes people refer to Confits or Rillettes as potted meats, but they're more of a true pate - just a bit chunkier. They can be incredibly delicious.

My wife likes Deviled Ham, and other potted meat products, even after I tried to tell her what goes in it. As for me...Gag a maggot! I would only eat it if there was NOTHING else to eat.
