Not familiar with the story of the pepperoni roll? Here’s the rundown: “The origin of the pepperoni roll goes back to 1927 when Giuseppe “Joseph” Argiro made them and sold them at the Country Club Bakery in Fairmont, West Virginia. Argiro originally invented the pepperoni roll as a lunch for the local coal miners. They made an excellent meal for coal miners because they had protein and fat for energy and staving off hunger, and they did not require refrigeration, which made them easy to tuck into a pack or pail and take to the mines on their own with no other preparation needed for them. Argiro sold the pepperoni roll to his hungry miner customers from the time he invented them, until around 1950, when they began to gain a more generalized popularity.” -ancetralfindings.com
