Yup, we have exclusive stuff like this here in Hawaii, because we love our Spam. But it’s not the first Spam sandwich Jack in the Box has offered in Hawaii.
The burger appears to consist of a small beef patty, a slice of Spam, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, and teriyaki sauce on a regular bun. I don’t think it’s a regular menu item, because over the past few years Hawaii Jack in the Box locations have offered a Spam-less Teri Jr. Jack, but only for a limited time. (Photo taken by Marvo.)

Forgive my ignorance, but who – or what – is Teri?
Teri is short for teriyaki.
Now I’m kind of curious about why Spam is such a thing in Hawaii. It’s kind of like the quasi-Italian dish known as Johnny Marzetti or Hot Dish (among other names) being so popular in the former Panama Canal Zone.
According to the SPAM website, the island’s love affair with Spam began in World War II, when GIs were served the salty luncheon meat because it didn’t require refrigeration and had a long shelf life. The Hormel Corporation, which manufactures Spam, provided 15 million cans to Allied troops every week. Between 1941 and 1945, Hormel had shipped over 100 million pounds overseas.
Here you go. Straight from the Spam’s mouth. http://www.spam.com/spam-101/why-spam-products-popular-in-hawaii
I just reviewed the new SPAM Teri Jr. Jack on my blog. I think they’ve got a winnah!
