The pepperoni roll was recently named the official “State Food of West Virginia.” The pepperoni roll was invented in Fairmont, West Virginia. Yesterday we were in Fairmont and every time we are there we have to go to the Country Club Bakery where they were invented and get a dozen. Those pepperoni rolls are the best. They were originally invented to be a quick easy lunch for local coal miners.
