Final price? $8 or $9

They've been quietly raising their prices on everything over the past year. There are now 4 $5 footlongs instead of 6, and that $4 lunch they've been pushing isn't a good deal either. Many of those 6 inch subs will be a $6 or $7 lunch instead.

At least they're actually adding something NEW to the menu.  They've had the same shiat for years.  What truly pisses me off is when they advertise it as new shiat when it isn't.  Try the ALL NEW avocado whatever sub, even though we've always had avocado.  Try the ALL NEW "black forest ham" sub even though it's the same farking ham we had last week.

fark you, subway.  Also your bread sucks and your sandwiches are bland as farking hell.  The only flavor you have is in the sauce and then what's the point.

Quietly? Maybe if you're deaf. Subway's sandwiches are terrible. All this health crap is if you happen to get the sandwich with nothing but lettuce. (A bit of an exaggeration, but still). If I feel like paying someone to make a sandwich I'll go to Jersey Mikes (which still costs more than I think a damn sandwich should) or Tom Thumb (the nicer Market stores, the flagship ones that have the nicer remodels and whatnot). They have great sandwiches they'll make fresh and at a decent price. Plus the soup they usually offer is good too. You can get a decently sized sandwich, soup, and chips for 5 bucks.

About half way through this I realized how sad it is that I have enough opinion about sandwiches to type out a paragraph.

This is not sad.  Sometimes when you're on the go and you want something quick, but you don't want greasy-ass fast food, sandwiches are by far the best option.

Then it becomes do I want subway, or something a little more expensive but actually good?

I like their salads, even though they're way over priced. They certainly aren't as good as a homemade salad, but it beats the hell out of most other fast food salad options.

If there isn't an actual deli on the site, they're not going to make a good sub sandwich.

That's usually what I grab for a lunch in a pinch. yeah it's gonna be 5 bucks for just some veggies and meat, but I like my mid-day/pre-work out meal to be really light. Just enough to take the hunger away. So a quickly made turkey salad will fill me up and I can keep it easily under 200 calories.

If I'm going to get a real sandwich I'll grab a one made of capicola and provolone down at Cavaretta's here, but then every time I go in there I can't pass up the cannolis.

Fritos really aren't all that bad for you. They're certainly not health food but they have all of three ingredients. Corn, oil, salt.

I did enjoy their assorted-crab-parts-and-mayo salad subs from time to time. It's not health food, but it's certainly a non-greasy option for five dollars.
 
2013-07-03 05:51:33 PM
There are stupid people out there subby.. You make a good point.  Before Morgan Spurlock, people were stupid enough to believe that eating at McDonalds every meal for 30 days was healthy. I'm so glad there are people out there tackling these hard-hitting news stories. It really wakes people up to the painfully obvious.

KidneyStone: Fritos really aren't all that bad for you. They're certainly not health food but they have all of three ingredients. Corn, oil, salt.


The corn is guaranteed to be GMO corn. Enjoy eating your pesticide. Sadly, I have to admit loving Fritos enough to eat them maybe once a month or two, GMO or not.

Occasionally I'll buy Trader Joe's organic. That has no GMO.

Also, a footlong for 5 bucks with organic ingredients, yeah, right.

Well, I'd like a second opinion on it not being that healthy.  I tend to go to Subway a lot, but I get the footlong ham sandwhich or the veggie (both are advertised as fresh fit with lower calorie content).  Supposedly the former is okay in terms of calorie but high in sodium.

Lots of fellow customers seem to order the meatball or philly cheesesteak - which has a much higher fat and calorie content.  So if they are thinking that just because they are going to Subway instead of McDs they are being better - that's a joke.

Wow, a lot of irrational Subway hate here.

Sure, it's not gourmet, there are a lot of better sandwiches out there (Erberts & Gerberts FTW) but I would argue it's the best, most standardized quality of any 1,000+ location chain.  It sure beats the hell out of ANY of the national burger chains.

Yeah, the meat, and some of the cheeses can be a little suspect, but the bread and the veggies really aren't 't that bad. Of course, your footlong meatball sub with extra cheese isn't going to be healthy, but you can pull off a pretty basic 6" on wheat, loaded up with veggies, and get out with a reasonably healthy meal.

I guess, in the end. it's like what most people say about McDonalds; it's not good, but I know I can walk into one in freaking Cambodia and know what I'm getting.

The USDA Certified Organic label has been so watered down that it's next to meaningless.  It's government sanctioned greenwashing for a 20% markup.

And that's even ignoring the fact that the whole idea of organic farming itself is essentially meaningless.  Organic /= natural, or even nontoxic to humans.

I'm all for eating "real food", or at least good food, but a lot of this Michael Pollan crap is reflexively anti-science, from the same vein that inspired the anti-vaxxers.  If Michael Pollan had his way, the industrial agricultural methods pioneered by Dr. Norman Borlaug at the University of Minnesota would never have been put into practice, and an estimated 2 billion people would be dead right now in Asia and Africa.

And it's by far the best quick roadtrip option.

Unlike other fast food, Subway is only as bad as you make it.  I load up with stuff like spinach and bell peppers, with no mayo or dressing, but I always have to ask for more veggies over and over to get that.  Most people will toss like three leaves of spinach on there, when what I really want is a salad dressed with a little meat, all wrapped in bread for on the go eating.

But I've seen folks ordering their footlongs with double mayo on top of oil.  It shouldn't be any surprise those guys aren't getting a healthy meal, even if there is a bit of lettuce and some olives on there.

So then, did you just say that "organic corn" CAN include GMO corn? Did you just imply that in your rant? I need to know now.

Kevin72: So then, did you just say that "organic corn" CAN include GMO corn? Did you just imply that in your rant? I need to know now.


Well, my point was mainly that the distinction between corn that is genetically modified in a laboratory and corn that it genetically modified through selective breeding--as has been done for thousands of years, and has created the modern plant known as "corn" from a largely unrecognizable plant--is almost completely artificial, and industry-driven.
 
2013-07-03 07:06:58 PM
Kevin72:  Without broadbrushing the corporate conspiracy to ruin organics. Can you tell me if I buy ORGANIC CORN will I or will I not be given GMO corn?

I can tell you with 100% certainty that whatever you get, regardless of where you buy it, how it's labeled, and even if you grow it yourself, it has at some point been genetically modified by humans.

That's just the unavoidable nature of man's relationship to agriculture.  Like I said previously, if you were presented with a corn plant in it's "natural" state, as it would have existed prior to human discovery, you probably wouldn't recognize it, and you probably wouldn't want to or be able to eat it.

I should also clarify that I am 100% ok with labeling crops that have had their genes altered in a laboratory as such.

Even though there is no practical difference, I still think people should have a right to choose whether or not they consume these products.  In effect, it just becomes a tax on ignorance:  people who know that there is no difference will buy GMO labeled foods and pay less, and people who don't know that will buy what is essentially the same food, but with an "Organic" label, pay 20% more, and sleep a little easier at night.  It's a win/win as far as I'm concerned.

Avocado is new to western Canoodia.  It is avocado pulp, not seasoned at all.
Costs $0.75 fo a #3 scoop on a six inch.  Footlong is $1.50 for two.

If your bread sucks or your sandwich has no flavour other than the sauce then your sandwich artist sucks or you're having too much sauce put on.

In western Canoodia the $5 footlongs (called Fresh Value) are the Genoa Salami, the Egg Omelet, the Egg Salad, the Veggie Delight and the surprisingly decent Falafel.
