Figgy Pudding-Flavored SPAM Has Arrived for the Holidays

Here’s a phrase you’ve probably said, or SUNG.  But I bet you can’t tell me what it is:  What’s “figgy pudding”?

The answer is NOT what most Americans think of as pudding.  It’s a classic holiday CAKE made with flour, dried fruit, and “suet”, which is hardened fat.  (Yum.)

Most Americans just know if from the song “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”.  But now’s your chance to see what it’s all about, because the makers of SPAM are selling their own version for the holidays.

Two-packs of SPAM Figgy Pudding are available for a limited time on Amazon for $10, or for a little more.  (Check to see if it’s still available.  It’s already sold out on

It’s not REAL figgy pudding though.  It’s a much more meat-forward version. The top ingredient is still pork, so it’s figgy pudding-FLAVORED, but not the actual dessert.

The last holiday flavor SPAM came up with was surprisingly popular.  Back in 2019, their pumpkin spice version sold out instantly.

(Here’s a photo of SPAM Figgy Pudding.  They also did a claymation video in the style of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”.  The fact that the pig character is so interested in tasting it is a little disturbing.)
