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?
