In this article, they pick the "Italian hoagie" as the NJ sandwich, and I bet they got the idea from that show. The fact that they call it a hoagie and not a sub is a dead giveaway that their resource is South Jersey.

Subs are good, but a Taylor ham sandwich says NJ.
Yeah, I miss that plenty.
Brooklyn old lady here ... so old, we called it Pork Roll. That's actually the full name: Taylor's Pork Roll.
Only after leaving NY in 1990, and later visiting our kids in NJ, did we discover this NJ sandwich. Delicious!

One sandwich per state seems silly.
Haha, that's true!

Yes, that's the name on the package. My mother always said "Taylor ham", some people just say pork roll.

Vietnamese is perfect for Washington, but I miss the Indian fry bread tacos that are made in the Southwest.

Inaccuracies galore:

Ohio - seen the polish sausage in Cleveland but it is hardly widespread. You could make a much stronger argument for the chili dog which you can find at the various chili parlors in Cincinnati or Tony Packo's in Toledo.

Virginia - country ham is a favorite but it is almost always served on a biscuit as opposed to a bun.

================================================== ==========

It is hard to get too excited about having to click through 51 slides to look at the selection.

The most iconic sandwich in the US? Peanut butter and jelly.

Now that I think of it, I haven't see French Dip sandwich on the menu outside of California.

NC sandwich likely pulled pork BBQ

I understand why they went with the green chile cheeseburger for New Mexico, but they could've easily picked the Albuquerque turkey sandwich. It's usually made with turkey, green chile, cheese, avocado and bacon. It's really the only sandwich unique to New Mexico, apart from a burger.
