The price of a meatball sub and a pepsi across the country
I live in suburban Boston.
A large meatball sub around here is about $7
A 20 oz. Pepsi is $1.50

$8.50 is my total

so what would I pay in some other parts of the country?
Or how about some other countries?

2. It depends on where you buy it
And your definition of "large". I can buy one fresh-made at my supermarket deli for $8, but their "large" is super-enormous: it easily accounts for lunch and dinner, and I'm anything but thin! Chain sub shops run $6-7 for a large, so your prices sound similar to Florida's.

5. ordinary corner pizza joints
Seems like we have them on every corner around here.
I had forgotten its not like that elsewhere.

We also have new-style gourmet pizza joints which I know nothing about.
But I assume every price would be higher.

4. Here in Indiana we only have chain sub shops
I don't know about Quiznos or Jimmie Johns, but Subway would be about $5.50-6.00. That's as a combo.

6. At my favorite sub shop, Half Fast Subs in Boulder...
...the price of a 14'' Meatball Grinder is $7.39, and a 24 ounce fountain drink would cost you $1.25 for a total of $8.64 - before tax, of course.

Incidentally, the Half Fast Subs Meatball Grinder is the BEST meatball sub I have EVER had. Drool-worthy, if I do say so myself.

9. Just 5%? Wow. Everything in Boulder is tagged at 8.31%.
Still, the sub is worth it.
