SPAM Onigiri / SPAM午餐肉御饭团

In Japan, SPAM Onigiri (or musubi) is quite popular among the families with school age children. It is something quick and easy to make on the busy bento days. I first made this was like 10 years ago for my little boy's excursion. This is the original type/shape of the SPAM Onigiri originated from Okinawa, another popular type is the SPAM onigiri sandwich (rice sandwich) wrapped with seaweed. Have you tried it before?
