National Hoagie Day
When is National Hoagie Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 5
National Hoagie Day is today. This May 5 holiday gives us a special day to enjoy and celebrate a big, tasty hoagie. This big sandwich is known by several names: hoagie, sub, submarine, or a hero sandwich. Hoagies are a regular on most diets in America. People eat them for lunch, dinner, and even as a late-night snack. It’s a quick meal or people on the go.
The popularity of the Hoagie sub is partly due to the diversity and variety of its contents. It can be hot or cold, luncheon meat or meatballs, and contains your choice of a variety of cheeses. Then, the fun begins as you pile on any number and combinations of extras.
For the Record: According to the Guinness World Book of Records the largest hoagie sandwich was made in Lebanon on May 22, 2011. It measured 2,411 feet 5 inches long.
