              Spam was a staple in the state of Hawaii during WWII. Spam products has been a big thing in Hawaii my favorite spam dish spam musubi. It's so good.

                      I mean, taffy is taffy, I thought? Stretchy, melty, chewy candies, with extremely subtle flavors. How are these cookies taffy?

                                    For some reason, Hawaiians have this weird fixation with Spam. Like, you can literally buy gourmet Spam dishes in restaurants.

                                        For those wondering about the Spam, it comes from WWII. With all the war effort going on it was not the top priority nor was it convenient/feasible to send fresh food to an offshore island state like Hawaii. Instead they supplied a large amount of Spam which people then had to make the most of. Causing Hawaiians to create legitimate recipes with Spam, making it a regular part of their lives. They kept the taste for it from there on.

                                                I was very confused by the coconut cookies/biscuits, because taffy that I know (like salt water taffy) is VERY sticky. Like rip your teeth out sticky. Usually sweet too, I think they're usually flavored as well. I don't eat it....because I'd like to keep my teeth in my mouth lol
