This Subway Manager Has The Lowdown On Which Sandwiches To Avoid

I’m a big fan of the Subway sandwich. Not least because it’s a failsafe option if you’re starving and trying to pack a catch up with a mate and a bit of a shoe shopping into your lunch hour. But one Subway shift manager has taken to Reddit to let us in on all the dirty (and not so dirty) secrets of the sub. The ‘inside sub’, if you will.

Under the username SubwayworkerUK (subtle), the manager told the internet to ‘avoid chipotle chicken and teriyaki chicken.’ Why? ‘Chicken is given a two-day shelf life, once on the counter. However, these two bypass this and get four days, and can get a little stinky.’ Eau de sandwich - not the perfume of choice.

Chicken got a lot of bad press, with the user adding that it ‘stinks when it comes out of the bag.’

If you love your beef it’s good news, though, as steak is apparently the freshest thing on the menu.

The manager also shared a few cheeky tips to help you get your money’s worth this lunchtime. Apparently Subway use a ruler (see, maths GCSE wasn’t completely null and void) to measure their sandwiches, with most averaging 12.1 inches (oo-er). If you like getting your value, get a flatbread, says the user. ‘The way the flatbread is made and prepared we give you 14 inches.’ Lovely stuff.

And if you’re around late and feeling lazy, sandwiches are 20% off between 7pm and 9pm.

The sandwich of choice for SubwayworkerUK? ‘6 inch Hearty Italian, meatball sauce, cheese, toasted, and with salad and southwest sauce.'

Sounds good to me. I’ll just be laying off of the chicken in the future.
