Oh no you can't put it on anyone but you Addie, you need to carefully read again what you said!

But for the last decade or longer, the lobster has taken first place. They presented a rather bland rendition of it. Diced celery, onion with mayo and large chunks of lobster served in a New England type hot dog roll. And it is not only in Massachusetts. You will find this delicacy all through N.E. Specially in Maine. But very pricey!!!

If you're referring to the slideshow in the delicious-looking link that creative shared, it wasn't a survey, but a display of the different sandwiches that are popular in certain countries, or sections of a country. Just an article written for general information. New York got a hoagie, while the U.S. was mentioned as PB&J sandwiches being popular. Since New England is known for their lobsters, they decided to associate that sandwich with the region.

Seeing as all of Europe is only 25% larger than the "lower 48", I would think that each cuisine region in this huge country could claim ownership of a special sandwich. After all, along The North Coast, lobster rolls would definitely take a back seat to a good, old-fashioned, Lake Erie Perch sandwich. *groan* You can have your lobster and clams. I love me some lake perch, although I've always been a fan of shrimp and crab. Of course I'd love crab - my zodiac sign is Cancer.

Well I just copied the title given! Many seem pleased with it and it does cover quite a few countries. I do agree though that US was somewhat robbed! After all, the UK had 2 sandwiches representing it (i.e. one just for London).

My vote would be for the hamburger or hot dog over any others.
So am I Andy. But once again this thread has turned into an "Let's attack Addie." That's okay. My skin is thick. Go to it folks!

This is what I meant. I guess you missed it.

I illustrated that by saying that New England (an entire region) could fit inside any one of several states.
Correcting you is not attacking you. There's a vast difference. Too bad you can't see it.

I think a BLT would be a good choice because different regions of the country add different ingredients to it to make it their own.
