Hormel Releases New Pepperoni Cup N' Crisp

If you're used to buying store-bought, retail pepperoni, you've probably found that it doesn't quite curl into a cup like it does from your local pizzeria. Hormel looks to change that with the release of new Pepperoni Cup N' Crisp, which they describe as "a premium pizza topping uniquely crafted to cup and crisp" as it bakes.

You can find 5-oz packages of Hormel Cup N' Crisp at select retailers nationwide for a suggested price range of $3.49 to $3.99. It's available in original and bold varieties.

If you're curious as to what causes pepperoni to cup as it's heated, Serious Eats has a fairly thorough article on the matter that basically concludes, "For the cup-iest pepperoni, get natural casing, and slice it medium-thick."
