Subway Worker Tells Reddit Users Which Sandwiches Customers Should Avoid

Let's get one thing straight - Subway is fast-food for people who just can't face reality.

That's not to say it's not a great option. I love a meatball marinara as much as the next person, but just because Liverpool footballer Daniel Sturridge advertised it, four years ago, doesn't make it an healthy alternative.

You are lying to yourselves, people.

And according to an 'anonymous employee', customers attempting to be extra healthy by choosing one of the chicken options might want to think again.

The alleged member of staff gave their recommendations when he took to Reddit and answered the big questions.

Claiming to be a store manager, he opened the floodgates and said 'ask me anything Subway related'.


One Reddit user wasted no time in getting to the one question we have all wanted to know: 'Which items would you recommend? One to avoid and which would you say are highest quality/safest/best prepared?'

And the anonymous worker said customers should avoid the 'stinky chicken'.

Mmmmm delish.

They said: "Avoid: Chipotle Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken. Why? Chicken is given a two-day shelf life, once in the counter. However, these two (the sandwiches) bypass this and get four days, and can get a little stinky.

"I'd recommend anything else, Subway (at least my Subway) is very strict on quality control and dates. Steak is probably the freshest, and safest."

But he/she was clear to say they weren't speaking on behalf of Subway.

However, as well as the ponging poultry, the member of staff did have some good news to share with Reddit users.

Apparently, if you buy a foot long the chances are you could in fact be getting more for your money.

The anonymous worker said sandwiches are 20 per cent off between 7pm and 9pm - so specific.

And they offered this great piece of advice; if you get a 12-inch flatbread sandwich there's a good chance could actually be 14 inches!

I know they say size isn't everything, but it also kind of is, especially when it comes to sandwiches.

According to Means Health, a Subway spokesperson responded to Anonymous Subway Worker's claims.

They said: "All Subway stores are independently owned and operated by franchisees. All stores have very strict procedures in place to ensure products are served safely and to customers' satisfaction and all suppliers are required to meet our high standards of food safety and product integrity."
