      Anyone who's traveled much in West Virginia knows that the pepperoni roll is the Mountaineer State's favorite quick-eats snack/meal.

      Many of the pepperoni rolls sold in grocery stores and convenience marts in the greater Fairmont area are supplied by Country Club Bakery. For an absolutely fresh and pure taste of West Virginia’s most distinctive single specialty, we suggest travelers stop at the source and buy a half-dozen or a bag full. At fifty-nine cents apiece, they’re handy little sandwiches – a sheaf of spicy pepperoni sticks enclosed in dough reminiscent of the puffy rim of a pizza pie. You can understand why pepperoni rolls used to be a favorite lunch for coal miners to carry with them underground: portable, self-contained, and long-lasting. These are all qualities that make them excellent car-food, too!

This is the place to get your West Virginia pepperoni roll hot from the oven.

Note how a bit of seepage from the hot pepperoni sticks flavors the fresh-baked roll.
