You’ve seen the memes and gifs: Fall means leaves on the ground, scarves around our necks, and pumpkin spice on everything even remotely edible. Each year seems to bring a fresh crop of food products aimed at seducing those who are madly, deeply, and disturbingly obsessed with “pumpkin spice,” and this fall is no exception.


The Shameless Buns food truck, which launched in Vancouver late this spring, has been rolling out a pumpkin spice seasonal special of their own – and one like no other: Pumpkin Spice Spam Fries.


Known for their menu of Filipino eats, including pandesal sandwiches, loaded french fries and ube desserts, one of their signature items are their Spam fries. They take Spam – a bit of a cross-cultural touchstone for Filipinos – and slice it into sticks and deep fry them, and voila, Spam Fries.


Hormel Foods, the parent company behind Spam, launched their limited edition Pumpkin Spice version of the oft-maligned foodstuff this year, and Shameless Buns has hopped right on board.
