RE: Pre-Packaged Sandwiches ? Good or Bad?..... Mon, 04/11/05 12:27 PM (permalink)
I don't think any prepackaged sandwich could taste as good as a fresh one. I can't speak for vending machine sandwiches as I have always been afraid to try them, but there are two places I will buy them, enroute from work to my daughter's softball games. One is Wegman's grocery store and I like the rare roast beef with roasted red peppers and shaved smoked Parmesan. The other is a chain of PA gas stations named Wawa. They make fresh sandwiches but if there's a line, their packaged ones are more edible than if I had made some in the morning before work and let them sit out all day until 6 P.M.

    Variable, and often better than nothing.

      The WaWa's I remember were convenience stores similar to 7-11, fresh deli and fountain drinks and great coffee!! They had fresh bagels with a think slice of cream cheese. They were (are?) prevalent in the so.jersey/phila area.

        Same ones but they now seem to be in an expansion mode and are becoming a power locally in the gasoline market.

          Reference to WAWA..... Their hoagies are better than 99% of the Sub shops around here. It's their pedigree from the Delaware Valley, and the rolls which are from Philly and are better than 100% of the local rolls used in those 99% of Sub shops.

          Too bad they closed their smaller stores near me, and now operate only larger ones with gas pumps along major roads.

            Wawas hoagies are better than most of the hoagie shop hoagies in my area (Lehigh Valley, Pa) also. Especially worthy is their new roast pork hoagie, which is not something readily available in our area. Its not up to the level of DeNics or Tony Lukes in Philly (I've yet to try Johns Roast Pork the other member of the Philly roast pork triumvirate), but its a very good sandwich.

              If a place is run by the owners and has a little deli, you might do okay. But that isn't the topic here.

              I'd be surprised -- astonished, actually -- if I was ever so desperate to try a pre-packaged sandwich at a c-store, or from a machine.

                Clarification. The Wawa hoagies I (and I believe Signman) are talking about are fresh made. I've never had Wawas pre-made sandwiches, although, given the quality of the fresh ones I don't doubt RubyRoses positive experience with them.
