I too once mistakenly purchased a Primo Whole. I could totally go for a Big T Diablo now...
My husband, being from the central NJ shore area, hadn't experienced Primo before the first time I took him to Wildwood. He got me a whole cheese hoagie. My sister and I ate it for 3 days. It was like that Simpson's episode, without the food poisoning.
Marge, I'd like a moment alone with the sandwich.
Are you going to eat it?
3 days on a sandwich?
Im 150lbs from the Pnw and I could do better than that.
My appetite isn’t what it used to be though. I need to train up.
They're more formidable than they look. The bread has strength and sesames like little hype men on top.
And it's densely packed, Primo knows what they're doing. They also sell kosher dills the size of my forearm.
The regional term is hoagie, btw.
It’s pretty split between sub and hoagie imo. Sandwich works fine in this context
I need to make a hogie soon and have orange soda
Kel Mitchell? How ya been, man?
If a chain is your best option for a hoagie, Primo is your best option for a chain.
Damn, that’s a big sub. I love the seeds too. 11/10 want.
Believe that's the "Meat sweats and heartburn special"
That's what the lettuce is for. It's basically a salad
Was that a meals by Cug reference? If so look at this gentleman right here showing off such class. Get this man a DC. How ya doin?
Take care, brush ya hair
Tell ya sista I said hello
Just like ketchup is a vegetable right
Smoothie, but you're on the right track
It was today that I experienced my first hoagie boner! 🍆 That sub is sexy AF and needs to (Fat Bastard) "Get In My Belly!"
It's just trendy douche water.
This is the kind of sandwich I see on cartoons that makes my mouth water. I've gotta check out this place sometime.
Hah, I thought that was a AA battery at first and was like damn what a shitty hoagie.
Charged way too much, im positive
Such a negative comment
Made with micro shredded lettuce and a thumb sized meat slicer
Marge, I'd like a moment alone with the sandwich.
Are you going to eat it?
Only two more feet and it'll fit in the fridge!
Primos is great but their prices have gone up way too much
I just checked and there's one close to me, what sandwich would you recommend for a first timer?
Possibly one of these: https://www.primohoagies.com/italian-classics
Zero locations in SoCal. :( I guess Jersey Mike's is gonna keep taking my money. Can't complain, as Jersey Mike's is a huge quality upgrade from Subway, but for sure it looks like PrimoHoagies would be tough competition.
Primos makes jersey mikes look like subway
PUT DOWN THA JERSEY MIKES AND FIND YOU A REAL SAMMICH SHAHP GAWDANGIT!
For real though, being in Socal (assuming you're not in San Bernardino or Riverside) and having 100+ location chain fastfood competing for the go to sandwich spot turns all my happy feelings into bad feelings.
Oh hell yes. One in Bmore!
philly area does italian hoagies like no other. and this is a chain.
Philly area does all sandwiches the best. Roast pork, chicken cutlet, cheesesteak, Italian hoagies, bahn mis even.
Got a “14-inch” meatball sub around here the other day and that MFer was at least 18 inches.
I will never leave this part of the country, lmao. The food is too good.
Why is liquid death so popular? It literally tastes like the tin can it came in, it's not good. My Britta filtered tap water tastes so much better.
They're popular at livenation venues so they can sell you water that you can't reseal, refill, or put in your pocket. Want both your hands back? Better drink all that water you got there. Thirsty again? Guess you'll be spending $5 more on water.
Want a beer? We only got tall boy cans for $19. Now are you tipping 20, 25, or 30%?
Are you a fan of CLEAR, TSA Post, or Global Exit fees? I was a Global Exit man myself but lately I'm just not doing as many international concerts, so I've changed to TSA Post and it seems to be going ok.
Excuse me, I need to drink my verification can..
I got one the other day out of curiosity, and it was terrible. It's how I imagine piss after a beer bender would taste.
Meant to look like a cool beer so designated drivers or people that don’t drink can fit in without being outed if they’re around douchey people
Seriously you guys are buying this shit? It's literally tap water where I'm from..
That's all bottled water bro. All of it is tap water.
Insecure guys are buying this shit lol
TIL my gf is an insecure dude
Is your penis bigger than hers?
Idk I’m seeing a lot more insecurity in a thread making assumptions about people drinking a brand of sparkling water…
Yeah this is peak Reddit lol
Wholesome Keanu chungus 100 kind Sir, unless you like a popular thing I don’t like, which makes you an idiot and a loser
It’s a brand of FLAT water in a can. The entire brand is “manly man” stuff.
They literally sell sparkling water with flavors lol I drank one yesterday
It’s water in a can. Anything further is you projecting
I can’t drink tap water where I’m at but I buy them because they’re not plastic bottles
The cans are lined with plastic btw.
Fun fact! Cans have a larger carbon footprint than plastic bottles. Canning equipment makes far more cans than a single fill site can handle so you need to factor in the extra emissions of trucks going to the canning site and then the filling site.
Most plastic bottles are more vertically integrated and manufacture their own bottles and caps on site.
Not that either are good but cans have a larger carbon footprint.
To be clear - virgin cans have about double the carbon footprint on average vs plastic, but recycled cans have a similar footprint recycled bottles and the same footprint vs virgin bottles.
Seeing as aluminum is infinitely recyclable while plastic bottles are often can not practically be recycled at all, and can't be recycled more than once - the comparative carbon footprint potential over the lifetime of the material used in a can isn't nearly that bad.
Also, all of this carbon footprint business for aluminum has one huge caveat - it assumes all power generation is only coming from fossil fuels. Not only are there new technologies on the horizon that will allow for lower energy metal smelting processes without relying so much on the grid, but the energy mix of the world is shifting far greener. In a part of the world where aluminum cans are being made in an area that has a high number of renewables, the carbon footprint of making cans beats plastic.
On top of this, we're not contributing to the massive ecological cost of using single use plastics that are as big of an issue on this earth as climate change is.
If it's plastic vs liquid death, liquid death wins.
The appearance being similar to a beer is nice if you're trying to stay sober but don't want to stand out.
This is why this exists. Everyone here seems lost on that fact.
The plain ones taste metallic, the flavored ones are pretty good. That one's mango flavored, I like them better than other brands and the tallboy is nice to sip on through the day.
Ive only tried the lime and regular, the line taste like beer to me and the plain taste like the can. Maybe I'll give mango a shot tomorrow.
I'm fairness I'm now realizing I've only ever had the mango flavor haha they're not totally sugar free like most other seltzers but I think it's much better than soda for people trying to quit.
If you have the money and are looking for a healthy alternative to soda look up olli pop. Their sodas (tonic?) Are so good, 5 grams of Suger 9 grams of fiber with probiotics. The root beer and grape soda are especially delicious.
Ooo I tried that one, the root beer was really good! I actually forgot about those, I should find them again.
*through the day*
through the day??? it's 16oz of water
I like it because I'm trying to wean myself off soda and it uses a sweetener that isn't sucralose/aspartame/ace k
How is it not soda?
One is water, carbonation, flavourings and sweeteners.
The other is water, carbonation, flavourings and sweeteners.
What’s the difference?
Sparkling water isn't considered soda by anyone, are you one of those "a hot dog on a bun is a sandwich" or "cereal is a soup" people?
> Sparkling water isn’t considered soda by anyone
It is when you add other ingredients. What do you think cola is made with?
Sparkling water isn’t a special ingredient - it’s just another name for carbonated water.
Genuinely, I cannot see any difference between soda and this stuff apart from branding.
I believe the difference is sugar, price, and exact ingredient content.
Most sodas (at least to me as an American) are more expensive in store (around 2-3$ mark per 16 oz), contain much higher sugar contents, and contain many secondary ingredients that "maintain flavor," and are preservatives.
Liquid Death afaik, contains very little sugar per can, isn't usually expensive in store (landing about 1.50-2$ per can), and as far as the ingredients listed, is usually just simple ingredients and basic flavorings.
I could definitely be wrong, but Liquid Death to me, is logically a better choice (outside of taste).
But sugar has nothing to do with it. Sugar-free coke is still soda.
Price *really* doesn't have anything to do with it.
Most sparkling waters aren't high in sugar; most sodas are. Sodas need a "Diet" or "sugar free" to then appeal to a different crowd that the sparkling waters are already aiming for. That distinction of one needing a diet to match the other is a fair point in my mind.
Price is enough of a factor for me personally to avoid soda when I can buy a cheaper alternative, but I'll concede it. Personal opinion.
Ingredients are definitely an important factor though. Many people will avoid one item over another should it include things like sucralose, or any of the long list of preservatives used commonly in soda. LD is definitely favorable for it's lack of manufactured ingredients.
Soda is literally any carbonated water, by definition.
You are actually describing 'soft drinks' which are sodas with added flavorings and colors.
Honestly, I started getting pedantic about the definition of soda vs. Sparkling water. I started this to try and give some reasons as to why LD is discernable different from soda. It's my bad for forgetting my first comment.
Sparkling water *is* soda. You can make up all sorts of things about how you feel about what soda should and shouldn't be, but carbonated drinks are basically always just soda. There are different types of soda, but they're all soda.
LD is soda by definition. I'm not saying it's as unhealthy as coke is or anything, but it's soda. That's it.
Is any carbonated alcohol a soda then? Any beer or mixed drink that includes carbonated water? There's a distinction to be made between the two. Maybe the flavored LD's are closer to a soda than a sparkling water, but the brand itself and most sparkling waters have clear differences to most sodas.
Sprite and Fanta don’t have caffeine.
And wouldn’t that make caffeine-free Coca-Cola no longer a soda?
Its not actually popular it's entirely supported by a massive, massive VC funded "fake grassroots" marketing budget that forces it to show up everywhere. That's why it came out of nowhere but shows up by pallets at the stores and at venues.
I remember last year one of the larger camps at Burning Man was supposedly "secretly" bankrolled by these clowns. They had one of the more impressive structures/setups at the event. Probably cost hundreds of thousands to build including cost of labor.
The catch was everyone part of the camp had to be drinking this drink. Sure enough I go there and loads of people are just drinking it, sometimes painfully obviously so (I'm pretty sure employees of the company were there). This kind of thing is supposed to be a huge no-no at burning Man as corporate sponsorships are not allowed at all to the point where everyone is supposed to cover up obvious branding, including putting stickers over the apple logo on your phone. While generally most people don't care *that* much to cover up something like phone logos, the spirit of the rule is to avoid rich assholes turning the event into an advertising platform, which liquid depth obviously tried to do in a hush hush way.
What's even more annoying is this camp had one of the worst rated camps for litter by far by the post event playa restoration team. You're supposed to do a clean sweep of your own camp before you leave to leave no trace of you being there, so when resto shows up they can cleanly walk right through without slowing down to clean up after you. These guys basically didn't clean up after themselves at all. I'll be seriously annoyed if they're allowed back next year.
So yeah. The only reason you see them everywhere is some rich asshole(s) are throwing all of their money into bullshit marketing and forced deals which I suppose they can easily do as the product is fucking just water in a can. Honestly I wouldn't doubt if this post is secretly a /r/hailcorporate marketing post too.
TIL about product marketing and corporate sponsorships. Next you're going to tell me that athletes don't really drink Coca Cola every day.
Just get the store brand flavoured sparkling water for a fraction of the price. Liquid Death is a complete ripoff so that manly dudes can feel tough drinking sparkly water that doesn’t look gay and looks like a tough Viking drink. Grow up
- Guy who knows everything about why people choose specific brands of water
No, there are other scenarios. Like: they’re suckers and buy it because their favourite podcast told them to.
This is unhealthy lol
It’s a $2 can of water, relax
I'd rather it taste like a metal can than a plastic bottle.
I drink grapefruit spindrift constantly, I never said anything negative to flavored water. Just that liquid death tastes awful. I've never heard anyone get so defensive over water, you good bro?
He’s just dehydrated
Do you work for liquid death? It's just a really weird thing to get worked up over.
Horrible product sold by a horrible company run by a horrible person. Your comments are quite fitting considering all that.
Hard disagree, good product, good company. Great person who has turned their life around in crazy ways.
You care so little, that you just had to let me know. Dope.
You’re still replying?
I think you might have some underlying issues buddy, I'll remind you again that you're upset I don't like a water brand.......
And who are you?
I just looked at your profile and realized you're just a troll. I need to check these things before responding to people like you, silly me.
Lmao did you really go through my comment history looking for dirt? I really got under you skin lol
What a fun hobby you have there
Edit: barman to Batman, both work for this question..
And here I am wondering what the fuck are these niche beverages yall are drinking enough to have a strong opinion over...
None, homeboy was having a meltdown because I insulted his favorite water brand, It was weird..
The axe body spray of sparkling waters
That's gotta be close to a days worth of calories....
Dang. I normally boof my sandwiches. That one would be pretty difficult. Not gonna lie.
I believe in you
Yo, fuck livenation venues selling only liquid death at their concerts so I can't keep a bottle in my pocket and must therefore drink it all in order to not have to hold it.
Why are you asking that person?
It was more like a confused statement
This is the equivalent of the pink tax but for guys.
Ah. American sized
Its at least 3 meals worth of sandwich!
That’s what I’m talking about!
Marge, I’d like to be alone with the sandwich.
That's one big sandwich.
Just lost 5 kilos in two weeks, got 10 kilos back by looking at this
You don't get this in Australia. They advertise it looking like this, then give you 10.5 inches with 4 thin slices of ham and lettuce that gave up the will to live the same time I gave up the idea of owning a home
Is that can bigger, or smaller than a banana?
I should go call her...
At the sandwich shop near me, that would probably cost $30-40.
Do you wanna guess what this cost or should just tell ya?
For some reason, I remembered that a couple of decades ago, Burger King sold whoppers for $0.99. A broke and hungry young man like myself could get two big burgers for two bucks.
That looks delicious and a Liquid Death to top it off too!
The original Primos on my uncle street is legit.
What's the point of Liquid Death for any sparkling water aficionados on here?
I like the taste
How does one physically put this in their stomach
Mango chainsaw is the goat
A whole Italian from the Primo where I live is $28 and about 2,000 calories.
Off topic, but what's up with Liquid Death? That shits everywhere nowadays.
Water. But in a can.
Also not at all a new concept, there's been plenty of canned waters before liquid death.
Yeah but it’s extra edgy
This is why you’re fat
Who on earth actually drinks liquid death water tho? Isn't all just marketing.
That’s how you do shit boy
That’s a big grinder. Looks good.
Tell me you're from Connecticut without telling me you're from Connecticut...
That’s a hoagie. Although I would love to see their reaction when you ask for an Italian grinder.
You say potato
title clearly says hoagie.
Ayyyy liquid death. I get a case of it every 2 weeks, best soda replacement ive ever had
Quit drinking soda because I gained a lot of weight doing so and I agree liquid death is not a bad alternative, I also still drink and would recommend fresca (0 sugar and calories tho I believe it has aspartame)
I drink alot of sparkling polar and poland spring too, the polar pineapple pomello is my go-to. Sometimes ill mix a little pineapple juice in
Everything reminds me of her
I said I would do 10 pushups if I saw this comment. To the floor I go.
Came here for this.
Liquid death for the win! Those cans aren’t small either.
Why is this downvoted?
I'm guessing because some people find the stuff to be pretty terrible.
Water that costs more than beer made me avoid it.
Lmao what an average redditor
Idk, they might not realize I’m talking about the drink.
Sorry. Had to give you the downvote for the Liquid Death
I appreciate the honesty.
UGH, could use a good sesame seed sandwich right about now...
Looks nice and fresh!
SWEET. BABY. JESUS. \*ctr-T's and furiously searches for physical location of nearest Primo Hoagie's\*
You vs the guy she tells you not to worry about
…and a water.
Everything reminds me of her..
I should call her...
That looks intense, sign me up
This hoagie is three pints long
Well. That's dinner sorted for the next 3 days.
You should post this on r/mostbeautiful.
