Doesn't mean you should ever eat in a Subway in your home town. But it's more reliable (or less reliably disgusting) than most other franchise operations, when you're traveling and don't have time to look for something better.
At first glance I misread the last sentence to say: “DeLuca also disclosed that Subway has started testing HUMANS as a sandwich topping as it seeks to maintain its appeal among health-conscious consumers.”
I thought that was a rather bold revelation…
My view is that perhaps Subway is doing some damage control based on bullshit claims made up by people who are scared by anything that is called a 'chemical'. The person who started the campaign against subway is the Food Babe, a complete idiot who thinks microwaves destroy the nutrition in your food:
Well it's not bread. That might have something to do with it.
I've baked bread from scratch. White bread, flat bread, whole wheat bread. That crap isn't bread. Just a general rule: If the "bread" has no give to it, if it's basically a wheat-based marshmallow, it's not actually good for you in any way.
Though more expensive, Starbucks took over as my "at least I won't feel like shit" interstate food supplier. Plus that one in Lebec before the Grapevine has a nice bathroom.
Either way, a better choice than ground beef, fries, and soda.
Many chemicals are in sufficient quantity. OH MY GOD, CHEMICALS IN MY FOOD.
Do they have Jersey Mike's in Seattle?
Oh heck, what do I care.
I finally mastered the art of baking really good bread in my own oven.
My secret? Skip the Rapid Rise and go with the classic Fleischmann's Active Dry!
Today I tried adding sesame seeds. That I need to work on...
Oh, and make sure the bathrooms have slight negative air pressure relative to the rest of the place, please, burger-merchants.
I live in Central Washington where there isn't a plethora of sandwich shops, unlike your Capital Hill environs. I guess there are many choices where you live.
Why doesn't Paul Constant come out to Cle Elum and open "Paul Constant's Great Sandwich Shop that's Much Better and Cheaper than Subway?"
Oh, you're too busy griping and bitching, instead of actually providing a service to the world.
Go to hell.
Maybe you're just cranky from the indigestion from eating too many "footlongs".
"We can surely convince these idiot consumers that they need to purchase even more low-quality food"
And he's probably correct.
As an example, there's a Subway at 125th and Aurora. This is within the city of Seattle (but obviously isn't downtown or in capitol hill). Paul, where is the "better sandwich" shop within one block of this location?
When I'm traveling and resorting to corporate fast food (and the greasy fried chicken diner is always preferable to that) I go for Burger King. If you're gonna go, go big. If I have to resort to gas-station food, I'll take a couple of packs of nuts and some jerky over Subway, any time.
For you poor reverse snobbery chuckleheads with the giant chips on your shoulder: sorry, it's crap, and so is your taste...this is not a case of 'relativism' - its a case of one thing being subjectively superior to another. Mom's kuntry kitchin diner is better, every time, and they have those out in BFE too.
For a lot of people that adds up to a lot of money over the course of a work week. I'm surprised the underpaid scribblers at the Stranger can afford such extravagance.
most sandwich places seem to charge 7 bucks, at least, for a small 1-person sandwich with like 4 ingredients. lame
