I don't know the scientific explanation, but fire made it good.

So in my recent trip to klaipeda Aras showed us the "pepperoni" he buys in klaipeda, but which we have been unable to find in vilnius. having just had pepperoni from the states that a friend brought i was immediately dissapointed upon seeing the pepperoni that aras had talked so highly of. I was even more dissapointed when i tried some of it cold before eating it on the pizza. It wasn't bad, but it tasted just like normal smoked sausage with a little bit of a spicy after taste, not like pepperoni. When we eventually ate the pizza though, it was totally awesome. So now i wasn't sure what to think, maybe it's just good on pizza, or maybe it's just good when you're drinking, which we were. Since getting home i've made several hot sandwiches with it, and they are just as good. So for some reason it just tastes infinitely better when it is hot. Now i just need to find out if it's available in Vilnius.

what exactly do you mean when you say pepperoni? That's just like salami isn't it? Because I remember being able to get salami everywhere in Vilnius

First, no pepperoni is not the same as salami. Perpperoni has a narrow diameter, like and inch, and is ussually served on pizza. Salami, which is also difficult to find in lithuania, has a larger diamter, 4 inches, and is ussually eaten on sandwiches. Although Lithuania has a wide variety of smoked sausages, they seem to me to mostly have a pretty similiar taste, and nothing that tastes exactly like pepperoni, or salami from the states.

rachel, when lokys talks about sausages, he has a specific authenic type in mind. in lithuania they call just about any sausage salami or pepperoni, whatever they think'll make it sell better--no scruples about sausage!
