    I'm kinda just surprised that they don't have a giant stick of bread that they cut off sandwiches from.

    Yeah, I'm with Pendulous here. If your "footlong" sub is within ~10% of the putative length, no biggie. Really, they should manufacture them such that the average is 12 inches, so people are occasionally getting more.

    Know what they call a quarter pounder in France? Royale with Cheese.

    Really though, every restaurant that offers fresh baked bread, bakes it from frozen dough slugs, which pre-measured or not, the fact is that it's really impossible to predict just how much a particular loaf will expand. If you want to accurately grade that fact, you would need to control the study for atmospheric pressure, which I somehow doubt this particular study has been.

    Well, five dollars for nearly a third of a metre doesn't have the same ring to it...

    In Canada we call it a footlong still for this exact reason.

    EDIT: Also, because the dough slugs are pre-measured it doesn't matter how much it ends up actually rising, the caloric value is exactly the same really. So it's not like you're getting ripped off if a dough slug, designed to rise into a 12" loaf of bread, only becomes 11" because higher atmospheric pressure when it was baked prevented it from doing so completely.

    Getting less of what should be categorized as sandwich garbage is probably a good thing. Subway is the dumpster of sandwich shops.

    Why is it that every thread about fast food has to contain posts from the world's leading epicureans, letting us know how unhealthy the food is?

    Do you tell everyone you pass on the street during the day that the sun is hot?

    Now I'm even more confused, what with that burger called the "280". :P Is the patty 280 grams pre-cooked or something? That would give the quarter pounder patty envy.

    Never seen Pulp Fiction I am guessing :P

    On topic, its pretty silly to get worked up about something like that. There is usually a disclaimer explaining that you might *not* get exactly the right size or something, but as close as dammit to it.

    What do you find unhealthy about a Subway sub? A six inch ham and turkey sub has 290 calories, 4 grams of fat, 46 grams of carbs, 5 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugars, 20 grams of protein, and a decent scattering of vitamins. As a runner, eating the footlong version is basically the perfect breakdown of nutrition for me. It's a bit high in sodium, but nothing particularly unusual.

    It's called Cheeseburger Royale in Switzerland. I'm dead serious. http://www.mcdonalds.ch/de/menuekart...seburger-royal


    And I haven't been in Subway for a while, but it wouldn't cross my mind to measure them. It's plenty of food either way.

    I don't get what he thinks is so unhealthy either. There are unhealthy sandwiches there (flatbread, chicken & bacon ranch, meatball), but overall it's very healthy stuff if you do it right.

    I think the taboo lies in the processed meats, which are high in sodium. I mean the subway diet will definitely provide you with balanced nutrition, but if you're eating it every day then prepare for a heart attack. :P
