    I don't think anyone buying a "footlong" feels cheated after they eat it, is there any way to determine if they are some how using less bread to make this sandwich? if so great! are they somehow skimping out on toppings? I promise after eating one they could have called it a "yardlong" and no one would care because they are happy and full. Nomenclature or vernacular don't be particular because its not worth it.

    Wait, people are now measuring sammiches? Really? It's not like it's a massive difference either. These people apparently don't realize that it's damn near impossible to force cooked, grilled or baked food to conform to a certain size. Bread is amongst the worst, except when rolled out to a base (such as for Pizza) where it'll typically only rise as opposed to spreading outwards.

    Next they'll be complaining about the weight of food and saying they only got 249g of [X] in their packet when the packet says 250g e (obviously failing to realise that the 'e' is used to represent average). Really, The pizza base mix I buy says 'makes an 8" pizza'. I suppose I should complain that I could only get it to roll to 7 and 7/8's, or that it actually ended up rolling out to be over 10".

    They're bitching over 2.54CM. This isn't sex. It's a sammich. Yes, sammiches can be food porn, but this is subway; It's the $5 hooker of the sammich world. The extra 2.54cm of what would be bread surely isn't that big of a deal. Not to mention Subway is a franchise and as such, there's no guarantee of continuity between outlets.

    Having never been to subway, I've don't know the details, but I see nothing on their website stating that it's exactly 1ft long. I'm trying to find something that says it's an approximation and size may vary slightly, but I'll probably get bored before I find it.

    Honestly, I'm not going to get any more upset over some of the sandwiches being an inch or so shorter than the labelled 12 than I do about 1/4 lb burgers not actually weighing 1/4 lbs. It's not like the slightly smaller sandwich is really that small. Also, in the original post he says that about half of the sandwiches were coming up short, implying the rest were either 12 inches or greater. That there's a range of sizes isn't exactly surprising.

    I usually get cold cut combo with honey oat and every vegetable in the cooler... and ask for extra green peppers and onions since they tend to skimp.

    Basically, some guy in Australia measure one and a footlong came up to only 11 inches. Then some other people started researching and found over half were coming up short.

    Here's the thing though. There isn't some magical machine making these things exactly 12 inches. These are people rolling some flavoring into defrosted rolls of frozen bread. They're not all going to be EXACTLY 12 inches. It reminds me of things like other fast food places. That quarter pound burger you ordered isn't going to be a quarter pound. Because when you grill or fry it, it shrinks a ton. Same thing here pretty much. You have to allow a little discrepancy.
    I worked at Subway when I was a kid. The bread comes in as frozen "bread pipes". You let it defrost and rise in the defroster over night and then bake the bread.

    Tough to get exactly 12 inches, though if over half of your "footlongs" come up under 12 inches, and some are as short as 9-10 inches, it definitely shows the company is purposely doesn't care or is trying to cut corners, IMO.

    That place is shit. Should call it "jimmy lettuce" as that is 90% of what you get.

    Subway blows. Out of the probably 30+ sandwiches iv'e had (ALL BLT or Tuna) maybe and I mean maybeee 5 were made right. Always go inside, the drive-thru always screws it up.

    It is baked bread there will be variations. It is a bit differrent if 1/4th pound beef patties actually weigh 3oz before cooking instead of 4oz

    Yet another reason to eat Jimmy Johns, not that I needed one since I already do when given the choice betwixt the two. I love the vinaigrette, sue me.

    That said, eh. Bread is a tricky thing. This reminds me of the cookie issue a while back where "1000 chips in every bag" turned out to be quite the exaggeration. Getting owned by a bunch of grade school kids is embarrassing! They should add a "plus or minus an inch" disclaimer on their ads just to be safe.

    Stay fresh, my friends.

    Addendum:

    I wonder if they weighed it, that seems are more reasonable approach, not like they don't have a standard for the fillings.

    Subway is about as healthy as Taco Bell; except in the latter case, they actually have drive throughs. Not that I would eat Mexican food.
    Taco Bell is not Mexican food! >:(

    So that's what makes subway healthier. Less food!
