Product Review: Hormel Pepperoni Minis Snac Pacs

Taste Test: Hormel Pepperoni Minis

Both PartySugar and I are fiends for cured meats as well as suckers for anything mini — so you can imagine our reactions when we opened up a parcel that was filled with pocket-sized packs of Hormel Pepperoni Minis! I stepped out to run an errand, but Party confessed she couldn't wait for me to get back to break into them. Were they as delicious as they were tempting? Find out when you keep reading

There's no disputing the convenience of this product, which comes in a package with six 1-oz. portions, requires no refrigeration, and costs a mere $3.49. The miniature pepperoni rounds have a pleasantly sweet-hot flavor. The pepperoni, made from a mixture of beef, pork, red pepper, and spices, have the same familiar taste as their standard-sized Hormel counterparts. As one would probably expect, they're rather greasy, and so rich that even a 1-oz. "snack" is hard to finish in one setting.

The biggest selling point is the product's cute factor. We could only fathom how adorable the itsy-bitsy pepperonis, which only measure a centimeter in diameter, would be in salads, cold pasta tosses, and — get excited — baby pizzas! Have you spotted Hormel's Pepperoni Minis at the supermarket? Did you, too, become a sucker for their irresistible size?
