When we casually mentioned The Wawa Gobbler in a comment on Philebrity last week, we were instantly hit with further comments, IMs and emails, begging us to road test this sandwich as soon as possible. So today, craving a spot of rainy-day comfort, we did. The Wawa Gobbler, of course, is part of Wawa’s Thanksgiving-ramp-up lunch promotion — they’re also promoting a hot turkey sandwich and grossbowl, the latter of which we’re not getting anywhere near, just because of our general aversion to the fast-food-bowl trend. The Gobbler, however, is a comfort sandwich foodies have been slapping together for ages: hot turkey, gravy, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. Think of that, at your favorite Jones-type location; now, slap it on a Shorti roll. Appetizing, or disgusting? We “experimented” with one at lunch today, and, with everything we know about “good” food to the contrary, we have to say, it hit us in a soulful place. A peaceful place. A place that ultimately wanted us to spark up a doob and take a nap. Gobble gobble.
Final Judgement: YAY.
