Papa Johns pizza ---- with margarine??!

fisher | Nov 7, 2011 10:09 AM

On a business trip recently I arrived at my hotel after dark, hungry and tired and with no car. The only food within safe easy walking distance was Papa Johns, which I've never tried before. Given the situation, I was not hugely picky and didn't expect anything wonderful. Something warm, filling and fast was sufficient. I ordered a small cheese pizza. And it met the requirements; warm, filling, and fast.

BUT, it was also perplexing. After returning to the hotel I opened the box to find, in addition to the pizza, two pepperocini (sp?) and a small tub of something labeled "garlic spread". I'm from NY and have never had such items packaged with a pizza. Although an odd accompaniment, the peppers were tasty (I like peppers). But the "spread" just tasted like margarine. I'm curious. What was I supposed to do with it? Spread it on the pizza? Dip my pizza?

A curious mind wants to know.
