A hero is a sandwich, and a Manwich is a meal
Manwich is a sloppy joe meat sauce brand. Their slogan is: “A sandwich is a sandwich, but a Manwich is a meal”. Also, a gyro (pronounced ‘hero’) is a sandwich-esque wrap, another play on words.
It’s also a reference to A Hero Ain’t Nothin' but a Sandwich, a 1973 young-adult novel by Alice Childress.
