It’s not Spam – but are you cooking bacn? (pronounced like bacon)

We all know about Spam and that we need to keep away from it, but what about Bacn? Bacn is considered to be the more legitimate cousin of Spam. The big difference is that at some point you did sign up for Bacn. The big question is do your recipients still want their Bacn?
