Today is National Pork Roll Day

Taylor Ham

Trenton NJ, Today is National Pork Roll Day, which is odd since it’s only available regionally in NJ, parts of PA, and some very lucky areas in FL and other states where stores bring it in. If you know what it is and get to enjoy it, you are so very lucky.

Invented in 1856 by John Taylor in Trenton, NJ, the packaging itself calls it what it is- pork roll, not “Taylor Ham.”

  1. Yes, Taylor Ham is technically pork roll, but only goobers from South Jersey call it pork roll. And speaking of rolls, Roller Blades are technically inline skates, but nobody calls them that (except maybe goobers from South Jersey, but I don’t know).

  2. You mean hill Billy’s.

  3. Only goobers eat pork roll or Taylor Ham.
