There Is Something Called a “Frozen Hoagie” in Boston

Dude, that’s not the preferred nomenclature.

Reddit alerts us to something called a Frozen Hoagie truck in Boston.

It's great that Boston is using "hoagie" rather than the "sub" or the "grinder" or whatever else. But unless it's on a long roll, preferably seeded, you just can't call it a hoagie. In fact, if you're making ice cream sandwiches, I think you gotta go with "Frozen Bulkie Roll Sandwich." We expect to see a new truck by the end of the week, thanks. Because you know what this is really about? Philly's the only city in the country that actually says "Hoagie" (and pronounces it "Heaugie"). And we'd like to keep it that way.

    Ok, hoagies are not just a South Philly thing so, no, seeded (I assume you mean Sarcone’s) rolls are not preferable all over the city. And, what’s up wit that map? Doesn’t Delaware call them hoagies too?

    had them- they are AMAZING!! They have nothing to do with hoagies, other than being “sandwiches”- the family is from Philly. They are homemade ice cream sandwiches- homemade cookies, luscious homemade incredible flavors of ice cream, and every bit the dessert equivalent of a well-made hoagie!! And this from a born-and-bred Philly girl.
