New Oscar Mayer pepperoni
« on: October 20, 2014, 04:59:26 PM »
I tried a new to me, Oscar Mayer classic pepperoni I found at Walmart.  I am guessing it is for deli sandwiches but I used it on my pizza and really liked it.  It is really big slices, I would say they are easily three inches across and they are super thin, like shaved deli meat.  When they cooked they sort of baked into the cheese and sauce and you really could not even see them.  I really liked the taste and sort of crispiness but not crunchy texture.  I paid $2.98 for 4 ounces but just noticed they are rolled back to $1.98 now.

I have not seen that before. good to hear you liked it.  That label cracks me up. It's "new" and it's "old" and it's "heritage!"  If only it were 'improved' and 'industrial strength.'  Perhaps then they would be onto something.  :-D
Cheers,

Racer,

Get your hands on some Volpi Pepperoni. Blows must pepperonis right out of the water. Also available at Trader Joe's if you have one nearby.

I haven't tried the Volpi, but I will, but the best I have found is Vermont Smoked.  Way above everything else.

Tried it.. think it is pretty ok.. has a good flavor and a slightly weird after taste.. maybe something along the lines of plastic mixed with actual real pepperoni.. I would buy it again.. but a very very slight taste I don't care for... when it is cooked on the pizza you don't notice it..
