Description
They came two to the box, wrapped in foil and were found in the freezer section, made up of cheese and meat (not sure what meats)that you heat up in the oven, my question is do you know if they are still found somewhere or a website

I remember these and thought they were called poor boys. Bologna, cheese and maybe salami or peperoni. They were very good and came with a packet of thousand island dressing. I wish they still made them. The microwave made a lot of foods like this disapear

My mom used to fix these for my brother and me on evenings when she and my dad were going out - I think they were called Poor Boys and they were made my Lawry. We had them once when one of my friends was over and she liked them so much she started having her mom buy them, too.

I was just talking to my 50 year old brother Bobby about the Oh Boy Submarine sandwich... Now understand that in the 1970's frozen food was a real treat for a kid, there were not fast food places on every corner and gas station only sold gas... I would love to pop one in the oven to share with my kids but would probably get a better repsonse from my brother. Looking back is always fun.

I have been looking for 25 years. I guess I'm not alone. Are we sure they quit making them all together? I sure miss them.

How crazy, I have been looking for these for years as well!! The closest I have come is in the span alaska catalog, they showed frozen poor boy sandwhiches. I had already made the order when I found them, but have always wondered if they were the real deal.

I was one of those kids in the 70's who at school lunch every day - I loved the Oh Boy Sandwiches served on Fridays - they were wrapped in cello and kept hot under HOT lamps!! The Cheese was hot and strechie!! I think that this sandwich was the best thing since Beef Pin wheels! Are there any thoughts or comments about this sandwich out there?

I just sent a link to a site I think may be pretty close to what we all remember. However, it no longer has the foil wrap and it look like a white cheese. (I remember yellow cheese). AdvancePierre Foods seems to be the new maker of these. I can tell you that my Dad bought them all the time in the late 50's for us kids. So, they have a long standing history.

Mmmm, one of my favorites as a kid. I remember anxiously waiting for them as they cooked. Never used the dressing, preferred them hot right out of the oven. The closest thing I've had are Cold-Cut Combo's heated from Subway. Not the same but still pretty good.

I went to a private school and the only option for school lunches were preheated sandwiches. I remember the Oh-Boy. It was the smaller version of a snawich called the Chuchwagon (we served both). Landshire, sold in fine gas stations everywhere, still makes the Chuckwagon, but not too many places stock that particular sandwich. Go to Landshire website, click on "Our Menu", and selct "Subs". In there, you will find the Chuckwagon.

I have been craving these for decades. Use to buy them at the store and heat them in the oven. DELICIOUS. Thanks for this web site! Two to a box, wrapped in foil,came frozen. Heated them in the oven, I think for about 20 minutes. I always burnt them, but what the heck. Tasted Great for a young bachelor!

For all that love this Sammy we need to request that they start making them if we bug them enough they will make them,they can be heated in a microwave or oven. I already have a call in to the company look at any Oh Boy product for the number

Where I worked, you couldn't go out and buy lunch. I would buy a box of these Oh Boy Sub Sandwiches, leave them wrapped in foil, on either the dashboard or back ledge of the car (when they had back ledges,) and by time lunch came, the sun would have heated these enough so that the cheese had melted. If it were particularly cold, I open the hood, set them on the top of the intake manifold, and let the engine run until it warmed up. That would be enough to finish defrosting the sandwiches, and melt the cheese. They were cheap, substantial, and well worth the money. I cannot imagine why some frozen food company hasn't paid attention to these posts, and duplicated this product. It would be a great seller. I'd still buy them today.
