As mentioned in our last post, the DHARMA Initiative version of SPAM (DI Spiced Pork and Ham) made its appearance in Ben’s fridge back in 2004. But while clearing out some boxes from the storage room (a.k.a. the garage), I came across a 1973 magazine ad for DHARMA Initiative Spiced Pork and Ham. (You can see the ad at maxpixpix on Flickr.)
Since spiced pork and ham has a pretty long shelf-life, it’s entirely possible that the can in Ben’s fridge dated back to the early ’70s! Yum!
