WV Pepperoni Rolls Poster

How is everyone doing? Trying to stay busy? Same. I worked with fellow Appalachian creator Sean McNamara over the past month or so to make this super nifty poster. I love it, and I hope you do, too! You can purchase on his website:

Text on bottom of poster: “The pepperoni roll, a soft bread roll with pepperoni baked in the middle, originated in North Central West Virginia sometime between 1927 and 1938. It was likely first crafted by the wives of coal miners, who immigrated to the area from Italy to work in the mines and could enjoy the shelf-stable, portable snack underground. Bakeries soon began offering the iconic pepperoni roll all across the state and in various iterations - like with cheese, red sauce or peppers.”
