Linked article describes signature sandwiches from different states. Mass was the "fluffenutter", which is "wicked awesome" and invented here.

Were they spot on in your state?

Outside of US:  What is the signature sandwich of your area?

MN here - I would agree that they are spot on with the Juicy Lucy. This burger was invented at Matt's Bar in South Minneapolis, to which I have visited many times. It is SO GOOD!

I was surprised they didn't go with the po'boy.

My biggest fear was that I lived in California my whole life without eating the signature sandwich.  But to my relief, I've had a french dip plenty of times.  I'm not even big on red meat, and I love the french dip.

I find it amazing that I've never even heard of a fluffenutter, until reading your post today. Fast forward 2 hours (til now)... I'm sitting here watching the Sopranos and at the end of the episode I just watched, Chris stops by his mother's house and asks her to make him a fluffenutter... Too weird.

Marshmallow fluff is a New England thing.  Put it in hot chocolate and it is over the top good!  Melt it on fudge sundaes, mmm.

in Michigan I'm not sure that a pasty qualifies as a sandwich but if you are ever in northern Michigan, run ...don't walk to get  one anywhere around Mackinaw Island.

I would have actually thought for Michigan it would have been the coney dog.   World famous in Detroit and Flint.

Pennsylvania has two sandwiches that deserve mentioning. From the eastern part of the state is the famous Philly Cheesesteak. From the west is the Primanti Brother's sandwich...

They actually call the style of sandwich they have pictured for Montana a clubfoot. Ironically, The Nuke is one of the sandwiches Staggering Ox makes that isn't a clubfoot...

I'm sure there are some people in Butte pissed off that ours isn't a Pork Chop Johns.

I just realized that the Delaware place has a location adjacent to my backyard. Their sandwich is "the bobbie," Thanksgiving dinner on a roll. I've had that type of sandwich before, but this one uses real in-house roasted turkey rather than deli slices, so I'll have to check it out.

What about the middle of the state?

I'm surprised a bit that the Italian Sub is the sandwich of New Jersey. Don't get me wrong, I love me an Italian, and I probably eat 2-3 or those a month, minimum, but for me, the NJ sandwich of choice is always going to be something involving pork roll. So evil. So Jersey.

Zagats missed on this one, I think.

Just went to it. It's awesome. Got half a bobbie and half an italian. Maybe the best italian sub I've ever had.

I rarely have a roast beef sandwich in New York, but I love falafel, banh mi, pulled pork and lobster roll sandwiches. I probably eat more falafel/hummus than hamburgers.

Hershey is in the middle of Pennsylvania, so I guess it would be chocolate covered cookie sandwich....

There is no question that the sandwich of Maine is the lobster roll. My wife and I went to Bar Harbor for a few days this summer and had some of the most D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S  lobster on the planet.

    • The progressive wing of the Dem party hates Kaine. He is pro TPP and favors deregulation to wall street. However he brings in VA and has a solid record on many issues for moderate Dems.
      I would not be surprised if you see Bernie speak at the DNC. He will tell his supporters that even though HRC is not their first choice he (Bernie) will have a better chance of working with  her for their issues, than DT! I hear they are countering Baio with prime time slot speech from Erin Moran!!!!!
    • Newtogolf's post is important.  I do not like hanging around people that are used to having a staff.  I just went on a raft trip with a friend of almost 50 years.  We do our own trips, and it is important for everyone to pitch in as it is a lot of work for guys in their 60s.  My friend just retired from being a doctor, and never really figured out how to help for the good of the group. He kept wanting to consider himself a "guest."   That is after we had some long discussions about being part of the team.  He will not be invited back. I would not want to play golf with people that are used to having a caddy either.   
    • Most double bogies, especially from the average golfer don't come from "taking risks", they come from a poor swing that results in OB, water hazard, lost in the woods, whatever.  A decent player can still break 80 with a double or two for exactly that reason, it's only a couple of bad swings.   The reason that most golfers never break 80 is that they make a lot of those bad swings, that add up.  But even good golfers, who break 80 (or better) consistently, will have the occasional bad swing that will result in a penalty and subsequently a double, or worse.   Which is "harder" is a matter of skill level. For me, someone who, as the OP asked, is as likely to break 80 as not, if I had to bet on the result of any given round before the first tee, I'd bet that I break 80 over a DB free round of any score.  Higher handicap players will find the opposite.  Scratch or better players will seldom fail to break 80, but will still have their share of individual blowup holes.  They'll just use their superior play on the remaining 16 or 17 holes to offset the couple of bad swings. 
    • I don't know enough about his situation.  Maybe not immediately -- he wouldn't qualify for the PGA Championship or the FedEx Cup playoffs (you can't earn points as a non-member, which he is for this event).  But probably by end of summer to start the 2016-17 PGA Tour season as a member.  Unless I'm forgetting someone, he'd be the third amateur to win a PGA Tour event in my lifetime (Verplank, Mickelson). 
    • Thanks.  I figured I would have heard by now if it made a difference, but I'm glad to hear it just the same. I tee off in just over three hours for my first round with the game golf.
