Toward the end of the shame spiral that was our diet while in Virginia, I indulged in a trashy old fave: the Totino’s Party Pizza. (DON’T JUDGE. It tastes of America in every way possible, and was like getting a warm hug from Uncle Sam).
I couldn’t help but notice that they’ve changed the name of the “Sausage & Pepperoni” version to the dubious-sounding “Sausage & Pizza Topping with Pepperoni Seasoning“. I did a quick google search to find out WTF it means (after eating it, so that I wouldn’t be talked out of doing the delicious deed). Without going into details, it involves various mechanically separated animals and unnatural flavorings, but I think this dude said it best:
Should I be worried about eating something that cannot legally be called pepperoni? Or should it just be considered par for the course in the $1.50 frozen pizza buying experience?
As with my other mechanically-separated shame food, the Slim Jim, this peek behind the curtain does nothing to diminish my love for the Party Pizza. Long live PTWPS!
