A Hoagie is cold

The only hot hoagie is a Cheese Steak Hoagie ( and even that I consider to be more of a Cheese Steak than a hoagie)

That's what I thought... So explain this Wawa advert. (Not my video)

That's just wawa re-labeling their horrible food so that it sounds authentic. Hot hoagie? Let's be real, it sounds as horrible as it is. Hot hoagie is warm soggy lettuce, melted mayonnaise, tomatoes so soft they turn to mush. Don't get me started on a hot tuna salad hoagie

What about hot tuna salad hoagies?

When it is heated or toasted; southern states call it: a Grinder 😳🤦🏻‍♂️

You can't ask this question without first knowing the origins of the hoagie.

Do you think shipyard builders had a hot ass 'hoggie' for their lunch break? Or did they have a few minutes to toast their cold ass sandwich with a blowtorch from the welding rig?

What are you talking about? My dad’s in his sixties, born and raised in Mayfair, and has called it a grinder his entire life. It may not have originated here, but it’s not like it’s new slang.

Hoagies are cold. Grinders are hot. Wawa is trippin, I kid you not.

I hesitate to even comment on this blatant Wawa subversive marketing campaign...but, here I am...a cold hoagie is a "hoagie," a hot hoagie is a "grinder."

Never eat food from a gas station. . . . But I like your cynicism. +1

A. Hoagies are cold. You can heat a hoagie, I guess. But to me it’s - hoagies (cold) and cheesesteak / steak sandwich (hot)

Anything else is just a sandwich

A, although I guess you could toast the roll if you wanted.

Cold but bread can be toasted (not the default)
