According to David Gutman, the West Virginia House of Delegates today voted in favor of House Concurrent Resolution 84 crowning the pepperoni roll as the state food.
Even Jay Rockefeller has commented on this momentous occasion.
Over 2 decades ago, I was proud to work through issues w/ USDA & help save the pepperoni roll & several family-owned businesses in WV. (2/2)

While Fairmont natives everywhere rejoice, King Tudor's is not happy.

While we are not completely sure what this means, our little knowledge of Tudorese and Spanish spells out that Tudor's will probably invade Colasessano's, Country Club Bakery, and any gas station within the state border that sells pepperoni rolls. Better stock up, people, the siege could go on for a while.
