What the? Spuckie!

Ask an old timer what they used to call a big old sandwich loaded to the gills with all the trimmings. By one person’s recollection, a Spuckie is “a word used to describe a submarine (sub) sandwich. It comes from the Italian word “spucadella” which is an italian sandwich roll. It most likely came from the Italians in the North End and elsewhere, but most definitely did NOT come out of Southie! When we were growing up in Revere (1950s), my Aunt Theresa always used to ask us to pick her up a spuckie if we were coming over to visit.”

Regardless, we have the fresh spucadella roll you’re looking for. A “Spuckie” by any other name still tastes great.
