Well, from wanting to stay away from the livejournal bs, I'll make this short and sweet.
I like Pepperoni. A snack for me is that plastic vacuum bag of 2 rows of pepperoni slices. Greasy, probably not good for you, but good. Better than in a sausage-like form where you have to cut it yourself. Pre-sliced is convenience.
I also like prosciuto(sp?). It looks like bacon, but is so much more flavorful. It is also sliced very thin, and a bit pricey. Still, one can eat it by itself and get snack satisfaction.
What I never liked was putting entire pieces of pepper(peppercorn?) in salami. Why? It's too much of a spice concentration in an otherwise flawless gestalt of ingredients that make for italian meats.
