   Publix Deli Subs: How Florida Fell In Love With The Pub Sub
by Jason Diamond, Thrillist

Florida, a state so big that it requires a full day to drive from end to end, has very few culinary claims to fame. Sure, there is the Cuban sandwich that both Tampa and Miami claim responsibility for popularizing in America, but apart from that, it is pretty barren. You're not going to find a famed plate of pasta in Pensacola, and nobody visits Fort Lauderdale for the fried chicken.

There is one food item, however, that Florida does better than any other state: The grocery store sub. But not just any grocery store will do -- these sandwiches must be purchased from Publix, the beloved supermarket chain headquartered in the city of Lakeland. While a sub is a style of sandwich you can get pretty much anywhere in the world, Floridians love the Publix sub as much as their college football teams, Pitbull, and air conditioning during a particularly humid summer. The most fervent of sub eaters even have a nickname for their favorite sandwich: "the Pub Sub."
