BuzzFeed just published an article called, "Every State Is Known For Having A Sandwich Staple --- Here's Yours."

Some of their picks are obvious...a lobster roll in Maine, a crab cake sandwich in Maryland, and a Philly cheesesteak in Pennsylvania.

I was curious..."what us the staple sandwich in New Jersey?"  BuzzFeed says it is an Italian sub.

Is an Italian sub really the staple sandwich in New Jersey?  I mean, a good number of people in the state don't even call it a sub, they call it an Italian hoagie.

I have nothing against a good Italian sub, but is there a better choice for NJ's staple sandwich?  Maybe a pork roll and cheese sandwich?  Or a Trenton (or Italian) hot dog?

As you think about it, here are a few other sandwich staples that I'm dying to try:

  • The Bobbie in Delaware, which looks like a Thanksgiving sandwich;
  • Fluffernutter in Massachusetts.  (Yup, peanut butter and marshmallow creme on white bread).
  • Polish Boy in Ohio, which appears to be a hot dog with cole slaw and french fries and maybe a barbecue sauce.
  • The Elvis Sandwich in Tennessee --- Bacon, bananas and peanut butter.
