Who doesn’t love a good pepperoni pizza? TV personality Adam Rijkman Sure, and he wants everyone to know that a fun vacation is coming!
Break out the pepperoni and celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day on September 20! (That’s a holiday most of us can get behind!) Richman wants to help people find a unique way to celebrate the day, so he came up with some great ideas that all revolve around Hormel Pepperoni.
Adam Richman shares information and ideas for National Pepperoni Day!
Richman teamed up with Hormel Pepperoni to announce their first online Pepperoni Pizza Pop Up Shop to help pepperoni lovers prepare to celebrate their love for pepperoni pizza. From September 13 to 20, new limited edition items will be available for purchase through the Pepperoni Pizza Pop-Up Shop. Unique items such as home decor, pepperoni rims for your car, wearables, games and other exciting pepperoni themed items will be available to help you celebrate in a big way.
For Richman, this collaboration was all about love.
“It’s a food that I really, really love. I definitely always have Hormel Pepperoni in my fridge,” he told The Blast exclusively. “A slice of pepperoni pizza is so iconic. If you go to your emojis and type pizza, it’s pepperoni. It’s a beautiful visual contrast and a taste contrast. We all love it. We all appreciate it. And there is a pepperoni pizza slice everywhere in the world.”
Richman explained that while many think pepperoni originated with Italians, it is an American creation made by Hormel in 1915, celebrating its 108th anniversary.
The TV personality said he doesn’t think many people realize National Pepperoni Pizza Day exists, so he wanted to share some helpful tips on ways people can celebrate the tasty day.
“It’s cool because it’s a food that I think you associate with indulgence, fun, parties, community and sharing. Almost every person in this country has eaten a slice of pepperoni pizza,” he enthused. “The best thing you can do to celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Day is to make it yourself, you can have it, you can throw it in a salad, you can just eat it with some cheese and some olives.”
He continued, “Because pepperoni is super versatile and because it’s American, you can use it in any recipe in place of a particular sausage, so you can put it in cornbread, you can put it on a sandwich, you can slice it. to an omelet, to a salad and of course to the pop-up shop.”
The Pepperoni Pizza Pop-Up Shop can help pepperoni lovers celebrate the fun holidays all year long with excellent pepperoni-themed merchandise. New items will be released every day from September 13 to September 20 at 1 p.m. Some of the things that will be available include bedding, car rims, home decor, mystery boxes, games, earrings and more.
Adam Richman talks about “Man vs. Food” and when he knew it, he made it
Richman shared some background on when he knew he had made it in the industry and the life-changing moment for him. He explained that his career took off during season one of ‘Man vs. Food’.
“I try to approach every fan, interaction and interview with deep gratitude. It takes 15 years for it to become an overnight success,” he told The Blast. “We were only bought for ten episodes. Three episodes later, they bought eight more based on how the focus groups liked it. The Portland episode was the first time anyone asked me for a photo. We filmed one of the most painful hot wing challenges in the world in Santa Clara, and people lined up for a photo with me. That was surreal because no one wanted me to sign a parking ticket earlier that year.”
But what was even more profound for Richman was that the moment became more about his mother.
“The moment that was the most satisfying, because my whole life is a love letter to my mother, because she went without so I could have my whole life, and she rubbed two nickels together to make a dollar,” continued he. “So when I finally had the money to not only take her to a Broadway show, but also to take a taxi, because we were always on public transportation, because I couldn’t afford it, and I had a car could get us to a nice dinner and front row tickets for ‘Jersey Boys’ and one of the actors from ‘Jersey Boys’ recognized me from TV, it wasn’t so much the moment for me, but the moment my mother felt.
