New pepperoni at Food Lion
« on: May 21, 2017, 08:07:28 AM »
I tried a new pepperoni at Food Lion.  Its Taste of Inspiration brand.  I haven't had a bad pepperoni yet but this will be the brand i use now.

I haven't seen that one, but if you'd like to be able to say you've had a bad pepperoni try Vilpi at Trader Joe's. I'll be surprised if you enjoy it.

I'll keep an eye out for it. Hannaford supermarkets carry a lot of Inspiration products but I haven't seen that.

Also, I agree with csnack. That pepperoni at Trader Joes is not good.

It's private brand, so you'll probably only find it at Food Lion or Hanniford.

If you still have the package, please pose the EST number. There will be a circle with a USDA EST# and if not in the circle, it will be printed on the bag near the use-by date. From that, we can  figure out who makes it.

I stopped into a Hannaford at lunch. The Inspiration pepperoni was in a few other cured meats. All the others had "uncured" labeling. The pepperoni has sodium nitrate. Only mentioning it because I hate the "uncured" labeling.

8 Oz package was $5.99. I don't remember the exact cost of Vermont Smoke and Cure pepperoni (this Hannaford didn't have it but others do), but I think it was $6.49 for a similar weight. This feels like a bigger diameter than most stick pepperoni. This is 1.5 inch diameter.

The EST number is 4058. If I'm looking at a table I downloaded correctly, it's Fiorucci product. I promise nothing about reading the table correctly though.

The more I try different pepperoni brands, the weirder my tastes get. I'm findng that I prefer brands I don't like to eat just cut off the stick (like VSC and a local Oscar's brand) cooked on a pizza more than I like brands I enjoy uncooked when they are cooked on a pizza. If that makes any sense.

Hope to give this a try over the weekend.

Interesting. 4058 is Campofrio.

That was the company name on one side of the table I downloaded. Fiorucci was listed as the DBA on the other side.  I also had to look up DBA. In this case I think it means Doing Business As.

Yes, Fiorucci is part of Campofrio.

I've had it plenty of times.
Flavorful, oily and soft.

When cut on my slicer it leaves a lot of grease behind.

Also this brand has been at my foodlion for a few years.

Delallo pepperoni tastes better and is cheaper.
When cut on my slicer it leaves behind hardly any grease.

I'll have to look for it my next trip to Hannaford.  I'm not a fan of pepperoni, but my son likes it (more so in omelettes than on pizza).

It took a little searching to find. The pepperoni was mixed in with some other Inspiration brand cured meats with all the cheeses and not near the other stick pepperoni with pizza dough and par baked shells.

Finally got around to trying it. It was pretty good. Had a bigger diameter than Margherita or Vermont Smoke and cure. I should have put more on. I also liked it better cooked than just out of the package.
