West Virginia State Food - The Pepperoni Roll

I am eating one for lunch right now.

If you spend any time at all in West Virginia, you're going to run into pepperoni rolls. They're everywhere. Why? Because they were invented in Fairmont, WV by Giuseppe "Joseph" Argiro at the Country Club Bakery in 1927.

I just pulled mine from the oven, but they are best fresh from the local bakeries. I love things fresh from the original source, like the original Stromboli I got at Romano's Stromboli. But I gotta tell you... this one right now... it's pretty darn good!
