I just ate a Subway Sub.

Horrible. Absolutely terrible. That Jared Fogle is the Anti-Christ.

What kind of sandwich?

Jared ate Subway so he would lose weight. If the food tastes bad, you'll eat less of it.

Chain sandwich shops are almost universally bad.

It's the smell, that terrible smell. And you can't get rid of it.

You ordered it wrongly. Subway makes an okay sammich if you do it right.

Italian BMT on wheat, american cheese, lettuce, light on the onions, pickles, black olives, pepperoncini, salt and pepper, oregano, vinegar and oil, yellow mustard and brown mustard, 1 "stripe" of each.

Not toasted.

Cheetos, crunchy

Tea / lemonade - Subway Arnold Palmer

Jimmy Johns rules, then Jersey Mikes, then Subway, then Quiznos, then Blimpies.

Regional chain - The Great Outdoors rocks. Awesome sandwiches.

Subway's BMT is so salty that I gain 2 lbs if I eat one as my body soaks up water.

Never been a fan of Subway.

If I want a sandwich, I'll go to a local chain, like Silver Mine.

Subway isn't half bad if you know what to order (as mentioned above). Healthy and tasty is: Club on wheat with provolone. Lettuce, tomatoe, pickles, black olives, jalapenos (jalapenos are important to add a nice twang!), salt and pepper, oil & vinegar dressing. Do NOT get a toasted sandwich.

Sure, most small chain shops might be better. But, when there's a Subway just across the street - I will usually go there.

As far as I know, it is one of the few mainstream brands that does not have HFCS as a sweetener.

That's exactly how I ordered it. The Arnold Palmer was pretty good.
