Subway Is Copping Some Major Heat Over New Menu
Subway is trialling a new menu and, not gonna lie, the move is attracting more heat than the Hot Chilli Sauce they want to pull.
The fast food joint will introduce a bunch of new fillings to about 100 stores, however, they're trading off some fan faves - including Old English Cheese, carrots and pickles - to do it.
The new menu includes a vegan 'smashed falafel' sub, rye bread with an ancient grain topping as well as gluten-free wraps, Newscorp reported. Streaky bacon, carved turkey and leg ham will also be included as well as 'improved' diced steak and chicken strips.
Their social media has since gone into overdrive.
As part of the trial, the following will be swapped out...
Bread - Honey Oat
Protein - Ham, Turkey, Diced Steak, Chicken Strips, Seafood
Cheese - Pate Triangle, Swiss cheese, Old English Cheese
Salads - Iceberg Lettuce, Carrot, Pickles
Sauce - Hot Chilli Sauce, Sweet Chilli Sauce, Thousand Island Dressing, Tomato Sauce
...for this ...
