Philly has jawns.club which, technically we're Greater Philly but Pennsylvanians tend to sneer at South Jerseyans so I feel like I should be setting up porkroll.club or something over here.
@jemaleddin "Taylor Roll" is, I am told, the mashup that results when non-Jerseyans try to appease both the "Taylor Ham" people *and* the "Pork Roll" people.
I have explained it to folks back in Kansas as "kind of a cross between bologna and Canadian Bacon, with some Spam thrown in. It's very salty." I also have to pack my suitcase with it and scrapple whenever I go back. 🤷♀️
@jemaleddin I'm picky about my scrapple, it turns out. None of this "Philadelphia style," it's gotta be Rapa.
(I assume this is because it's what my Wilkes-Barre relatives eat/ate and so I picked the taste up on visits.)
Pork roll is the same way: I can *tell* if it isn't Taylor, so it's not just an irrational native-Jerseyan loyalty thing when they get uptight about it.
Sadly, we don't do much of any of it at our salt-restricted household anymore.
