The hummus test comes at a time when many Americans are trying to cut back on how much meat they eat. In particular, Pace noted that people in their 20s are more "nutritionally aware" than any other past generation.

I'm aware that meat tastes good.  WTF is wrong with these kids?

In my experience, the 18-25 year old males subsist on a diet made up of pizzas and hot pockets, while the females are busy doing whatever the fark new diet is popular, but good luck with that.

In a Subway thread yesterday (or the day before), I predicted that Subway would be ruining falafels soon.  Looks like we're on the way.

/i go to the Pita Pit pretty often, and get their falafel pita about half the time - not super-great, but serviceable
//we're getting an Aladdin's soon, so I'll be having REAL falafels

I for one enjoy thinly sliced meat... less globby. More appealing. Hummus is good too. I welcome this change.
I'm not a health nut, but I'm also not stupid. Limiting my consumption of meat & anything else that could compromise my body in large quantities (I.E. too much food in general) is not negative thing.
But hey! Those damned hippies are cutting back on my meat sweats. THIS WILL NOT STAND. HODOR MEAT HODOR!

I think the kids are alright. It's these idiots who CLAIM kids want a healthier diet who are F'd in the head.

"Nutritionally aware" means "Yes. We KNOW trans-fats and non whole grains are bad. We heard you the first time!  Please STFU now and pass the McNuggets!"

Getting hummus as a topping will cost more, much like the avocado Subway added to its menu in recent years.

Hummus... great.  Hummus surcharge? Aw hells no.

I get it with avocado.  Avocados are expensive.  Hummus?  Is chickpeas. Maybe some tahini.  Chickpeas? Are cheap. A staple poverty food. As cheap as any of the 'free' veggies you've got out on the line.  Buying in bulk and vac-packing it in a factory (like everything else on the Subway trough)?  Can't cost any more than the pseudo-mayo.

Related, whoever figured out that you could put 30 cents worth of hummus in a tub and sell it for $5 at a grocery is a gorram marketing genius.

As a male on the upper end of that category, most of the people I know grew out of that before leaving college and started paying more attention to food. I know a lot of health nuts, and most of the people who aren't health nuts like cooking. Trading recipes for more than just grilled cheese is definitely a thing for most of my friends.

That said, most of the people I interact with regularly live in their own place. I don't know how people who moved back home after graduation are doing for the most part.

I get falafel sandwiches at Subway. I think they've had it a couple of years at least.

Hummus isn't more healthy than meat.

Its very yummy though. But you'd never eat it as a healtheir alternative.

/me doesn't discount people being morons and doing so anyway.

Does anyone else remember when Subway would crave out the sandwich top?

This headline has my disgusted respect.

I would absolutely kill people in my way if they started using a good hummus like Sabra or something on their sandwiches as an add-on...

Huh.  Must be available in a few select markets.

I even remember the name for it - the "U-GOUGE"!
