Pepperoni that has 70 percent less fat and all the pepperoni-liciousness of real pepperoni? Made from turkey? Can this be true? It can. And is! You can enjoy all the flavor and satisfaction of pepperoni, without the guilt...or that icky, greasy, fatty film that the regular stuff leaves behind on your poor, defenseless tongue. Though watching your intake of any sodium and nitrate-filled deli meats is recommended, slapping a few slices of these spicy circles onto your homemade fat free pizza or on top of a dinner salad, gets two thumbs up from Hungry Girl! (It would actually get more but, unfortunately, she only has two thumbs at this time).
Ponder this: When the world has become a place where you can find diet-friendly pepperoni that tastes just as good as the real thing, why would any sane human opt for the stuff that contains over four times the fat and almost twice the calories? Gallo Salame Pepperoni (a Sara Lee brand) does offer up light versions of their deli meats, but this full-fat rendition contains a whopping 24 grams of fat per 17 slices! It may be carb-free, but with 4.5 grams of saturated fat (the really bad stuff) per serving, is it really worth it? Um, no. Hungry Girl Warning: 78% of the calories in this product come from fat! EEEKS!
