    It doesn't look like anything I've ever seen before. I certainly can't imagine wanting to eat it.

    I don't know what the red things are. Other than that it does look something like bologna (aka baloney).

    I'd call it a kind of Wurst, but that's probably because I've lived in Germany. I don't know exactly which one it is, though I've eaten it for breakfast many times.

    "Lunchmeat" would be the catch-all term I would use.

    It would have been called "luncheon meat" when I was a kid (some had red bits, some didn't). I haven't heard that term for years though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Probably pimientos -- making the above a picture of pimiento loaf.
