Eight decades since it first rolled off the production line, Spam endures. Beluga caviar, wagyu beef and black truffles sell for more (Spam is £1.99 for 340g), but can those luxuries provide directions to their own custom-built museum? Spam can.

Spam has inspired poetry, and there are even wedding ceremonies in its name. Monty Python secured its iconic status with its “Spam” sketch, together with a choir of helmeted Vikings. The musical Spamalot owes some of its inspiration to the canned meat.
