You Know You’re in NJ When…
You know you’re in New Jersey when you’re driving around and you see something like this:
That’s right, a pork roll van. The incident happened a couple days ago. I was driving on Route 35 and all of the sudden, I realized I was behind a van advertising pork roll. So I stalked the van until we were stopped at a red light and took the picture.
For those who don’t know, pork roll is the official processed meat of New Jersey and one-third of the famous pork roll, egg, and cheese sandwich that this state is famous for. Despite the advertisement, the website theporkrollstore.com is nonexistent. But a quick search tells me that the real Pork Roll Store is located in Allentown, NJ. I’ve always heard about a store in Allentown that has the best pork roll – I guess that must be the place. Anyway, where else can you be driving down the street and see a van advertising salty processed pig? Only in the Armpit of America.
