Fong’s Pizza is Running a New Special in Honor of Jim Gaffigan
Comedian Jim Gaffigan made a virtual appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden early last month, but it wasn't what he said during the interview that shocked Iowans, it was what he WORE.
As you can see from the screenshot below, Jim Gaffigan was rocking a shirt representing Fong's Pizza!
Fong's Pizza started right here in Iowa and now has four locations across the state: two in Des Moines, one in Ankeny, and one in Cedar Rapids. Jim must have stopped at one of the restaurants during one of his tour stops in Iowa and picked up a shirt while he was there!
The Fong's Pizza location here in Cedar Rapids was so honored by Jim's support that they revealed some new February specials yesterday to celebrate! If you're a fan of Jim's, then you no doubt are familiar with his Hot Pockets bit from his 'Beyond the Pale' special. If not, here it is for you:
The Jim-inspired feature this month is Hot Ham & Cheese Pockets. The description on Facebook says they consist of:
"our homemade dough, stuffed with cheddar & mozzarella cheese and Canadian bacon. Fried golden with marinara dipping sauce."
Fong's is also offering a Broccoli & Chicken Pizza this month. Both items look delicious!
