“Universal Robina Corporation (URC) is one of the largest packaged food companies in the Philippines and the dominant market leader in snacks, candies, chocolates, biscuits, cup noodles and canned beans. It is also a formidable market challenger, as either the second or third leading player, in instant noodles, coffee, ice cream, pasta and tomato-based products.”    –website of URC, maker of Magic Flakes crackers

“In the Philippines, Spam is a popular food item and seen as a cultural symbol. It is prepared and used in a variety of ways, including being fried, served alongside condiments, or used in sandwiches. The canned meat’s popularity transcends economic class, and Spam gift sets are even used as homecoming gifts. There are more than 9 different varieties of Spam currently available in the country and an estimated 1.25 million kilos of the meat is sold every year in the Philippines.[39] During the rescue efforts after Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) in 2009, Hormel Foods donated over 30,000 pounds of Spam to the Philippine National Red Cross.[40]” –Wikipedia article on Spam, the canned meat product

61,513 spams in the comments section of magicflakes. hey, no problem! spam and magicflakes are obviously meant to be together.

on the other hand. wordpress allows the moderator (me) to delete only 100 spams at a time. each deletion of 100 requires 4 clicks. 61,513 / 100 x 4 = 2,461 clicks to eliminate the spam.

so apologies to all of you real people who have something to say about our fascinating posts and amazing pictures. apologies especially to john t., erstwhile star of the comments section. comments are off.

you can always get in touch with us at magicfla @ magicflakes . org if you’ve got a good one.
