Quick-Service Pizza Brand to Give Away Free ‘Pepperoni Pucker’ Flavored
Lipsticks in Honor of National Kissing Day

MORRISTOWN, NJ (March 27, 2018) – With over 251 million pounds of pepperoni consumed by Americans each year, there is no denying that the spicy red stuff is America’s favorite pizza topping. Villa Italian Kitchen, one of America’s favorite quick-service pizza brands, has cooked up a fun way for guests to enjoy their favorite flavor in a new, never-before-seen form: lipstick. In honor of National Kissing Day on Friday, April 13, fans of the pizza brand can officially pucker-up for pepperoni flavored kisses by signing up to receive a lipstick free of charge at

Each Pepperoni Pucker lipstick is a universally flattering, high-pigmented red that glides on smoothly with a hydrating formula chock-full of moisturizing vitamins A and E. In addition to the zesty pepperoni flavor specially formulated for Villa Italian Kitchen, each lip-smacking good, limited-edition lipstick also contains a natural peptide to restore collagen and add volume, keeping the lips of its wearers in optimal kissing condition. For the first time, Villa Italian Kitchen was able to bottle the essence of pepperoni by flavoring each lipstick with the scent and taste of a Villa Italian Kitchen pepperoni pizza – including sauce made from fresh California tomatoes and delicious, zesty pepperoni.

“We are so excited to offer the Pepperoni Pucker lipstick,” said Mimi Wunderlich, Director of Communications and Digital Marketing, Villa Italian Kitchen. “Our guests are always complementing our pepperoni pizza, so creating a way for diehard fans to take the flavor with them and taste it whenever they want seemed like a perfect fit.”
