Burgers, fried chicken and pizza are all well and good, but sometimes I feel like the perfect way to satisfy a hunger craving is to chow down on a nice sandwich. No deep frying or baking necessary; all you need is some cheese, some nice fillings, and your finest bread. Maybe some pickles or potato chips, if you’re feeling fancy.
I don’t know about you, though, but I can at times be too lazy to make a sandwich. I’m only human, and sadly, laziness is one of humanity’s biggest failings. That’s when I head to Subway, and have a gracious employee make a sandwich for me.
What’s more is that I never feel bad for being picky about my Subway sandwich – in fact, it’s actively encouraged by the franchise.
With the likes of KFC, McDonald’s and Wendy’s hogging so many of the headlines, Subway kind of gets forgotten about in discussions about great fast food, but there are nearly twice as many Subways as there are McDonald’s branches in the United States. I like to think that’s for a good reason.
But when you next head to Subway, ladies and gentlemen, there are four sandwiches you should really steer clear from.
Sadly, they are good sandwiches, but a Subway sandwich artist took to the internet to reveal four sandwiches on the menu that should stay far, far away from your face hole.
For more, let’s go to Redditor Nope__Nope__Nope, who talks about some of the terrifying secrets at America’s favorite sandwich shop.
So what’s the first sandwich at Subway you should never order? In theory, the Meatball Marinara is Subway’s greatest sandwich, with cheese, meatball and sauce coming together in holy food matrimony, but this Subway insider reveals that ordering one is an absolute no-no. Especially if it’s early.
If you want to avoid the dry, day-old meat and congealed sauce that comes with many a Meatball Marinara, then be sure to ask if the meatballs are fresh. But even then, there’s no guarantee.
“You’ll be told yes no matter what. But if they have to go check, it’s actually a guaranteed no. They’re checking to see if they can pass as fresh. Trust me, meatballs are annoying to prep, and we know damn well if they’re fresh or not without needing to check.“
The second sandwich you should never order is the Roast Beef, but that’s mostly because that’s the sandwich that goes bad the quickest. Be sure to ask your server if the beef is fresh, but don’t expect them to be 100 percent truthful.
Nope__Nope__Nope’s comments were part of a wider thread about the dark practices at Subway, and one shocking piece of information to come out of that was about the cutting boards they used to chop up your six or 12-inch sub. All I’m going to say is that you should watch your Subway employee very closely when they wrap your sandwich in deli paper.
Chipotle Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken
Oh, and another Subway employee on Reddit by the name of “subwayworkeruk” revealed that the Chipotle Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken subs should be avoided at all costs. Why? He writes:
“Chicken is given a two-day shelf life, once in the counter. However, these two bypass this and get four days, and can get a little stinky.”
As you may or may not know, every fast food chain has its dark side, and if you want to stay ahead of the game, then I’ve just saved you a lot of grief. Enjoy your Subway sandwich time. As long as it’s not the Meatball Marinara, Roast Beef or the Chipotle Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken subs.
You’ll thank me later.
