Alabama Hot Pocket

Few restaurants or food items are as synonymous with their home state as the Alabama Hot Pocket, which has been delighting residents of the southeastern US since its invention in 2022. The heart of the Alabama Hot Pocket’s appeal, and its key selling point in the early years of its existence, was its sheer convenience—at just 75 cents and several minutes’ drive time from anywhere in the state, it was hard to imagine not stopping by to pick up an Alabama Hot Pocket if you were running low on snacks while running errands in town on a Saturday afternoon.

The history of the sandwich

In order to understand why the sandwich is so popular in Alabama, it’s important to know how it came about. The first mention of a sandwich was when John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich in England wanted a meal he could eat without getting up from the card table. He asked his servant to put roast beef between two pieces of bread and take away the plate. As time passed, sandwiches evolved into what they are today with fillings like cold cuts, lettuce, tomato and onion.

The glory days

Alabama hot pockets have been a staple in the diet of Alabamians for years. But in 2022, a new company was born to challenge this norm. The company was called Birmingham Bites. The owners, two brothers from Birmingham, were frustrated with their lackluster careers as chemists and wanted to make an investment in themselves by opening up their own restaurant. They started off small with only one location, but quickly expanded due to their low prices and unique menu items like Pizza Crusts (more on that later). By 2026, they had sold enough franchises to become one of the largest fast-food companies in America.

Why we need to bring back the hot pocket

People often forget about hot pockets, and I think that’s a shame. They’re delicious, convenient and come in a variety of flavors. There are so many different varieties of hot pockets to try out. You can get some classic ones like pepperoni or cheese, or try some more exotic flavors like buffalo chicken or barbecue beef with cheddar.

Where can we find one today?

Alabama hot pockets used to be a regional delicacy, only found in the Southeast. But with their recent spike in popularity, they have now been popping up all over the country. The rise in popularity can be attributed to one thing: fame. With more and more people craving this southern specialty, it was inevitable that restaurants would jump on board and start making them for themselves. Nowadays you can find them at your local Walmart or grocery store chain like Kroger or Safeway- and even better- you can make your own!
