It’s like a Thanksgiving dinner on a hoagie roll.
Nationally it may not be as well known as a sign of autumn as pumpkin spice coffee – or pumpkin spice anything – but in areas served by Wawa the Gobbler hoagie means fall is here.
It’s not my hoagie of choice (I prefer an Italian hoagie with oil, vinegar, and hot peppers) but plenty of people like it. And Philadelphia magazine rates it as the best sandwich at Wawa:
Is there really any question about the Gobbler being the Number One Sandwich at Wawa? No, there isn’t. It is comfort on a roll. A portable Thanksgiving dinner. Warm and sloppy and cheap and delicious all at the same time.Wawa Sandwiches, Ranked – Philadelphia magazine
In Other Wawa Hoagie News
Today I had a hoagie for the first time since Hoagie Fest and the Gobbler wasn’t the only new hoagie that I noticed at Wawa. There are now 2 types of Italian hoagie available. In addition the the regular Italian hoagie there is now a Spicy Italian Hoagie to go along with it. I haven’t tried it yet, maybe next time. (I usually get a hoagie every few months so it may take me a while to sample it.)
