I found it interesting that the first travel guide to arrive is from Minnesota, not a neighboring state. My oldest was looking through it and found a little fun fact… Did you know? The canned meat known as SPAM was created in Minnesota and introduced in 1937. It became popular worldwide after being used during WWII. There’s quite a bit of history involving this food item, it’s even connected to the naming of junk email called, you got it, spam!
