Underwood Deviled Ham

Do you remember this?

Did your mother ever make you a deviled ham sandwich?

How does a company get away with making Beelzebub it’s brand logo? And here, they’ve got him tucked among the holly and pine boughs like some cross between Baby Jesus and Regan MacNeil, a satanic creche tableaux.

They still make this stuff. I’m going to get me some for lunch this weekend, and try one of those recipes out. Mmmm, savory.

I love the way they wrap the plain old boring can in paper, like it was a gift, like it was a luxury bauble. All it needs is a tiny bow and a gift card. “To: You. From: Hell. Bon apetit!”

    I hope you can post a “flavor profile” after you try a few bites…

      It tasted like brimstone and minced bologna.

    Sean, very funny. Just want to tell you that Deviled Ham never passed my lips, no matter how enticing the wrapper was. Kathy
