Subway Has Launched A New Money Saver Menu That Includes Hash Browns
| Last updated
Skint? Stoney? Considering how to scrimp together enough cash to be able to have lunch 'options' rather than just the naffest butty at the supermarket? Well, here's some good news - Subway is now offering a money-saver menu, and it even includes hash browns.
The sandwich chain's new saver menu launches today and food items start from as little as 99p.
The menu includes four items to pick from, including some completely new additions.
New items include hash browns, that come topped with a sauce of your choice, a chorizo flatbread pizza or a taco beef mini wrap.
I'd always thought of hash browns as more of a 'breakfast item', but I'm all about exploring new horizons.
If all that wasn't enough, the nachos are already available to buy in store have been added to the budget menu and will now come with the optional extra of taco beef.
And Subway isn't stopping there, oh no. It's even added the 'Sub of the Day' to the saver menu - meaning customers can get a different sandwich at a reduced price throughout the week.
Hash browns are the cheapest items on the menu, starting at 99p, and prices go up to £3 for the taco beef nachos. Prices also may vary depending on which store you visit.
This change to the menu sees Subway going head-to-head with rival fast-food chain McDonald's.
The classic burger chain also has a saver menu which starts at 99p, although Maccies' budget offerings reach a top price of £1.49.
Don't get too excited about scoring some deliciously cheap hash browns for your midday meal just yet, though - it hasn't yet been confirmed whether the saver menu will be available in all Subway stores.
Over at the other end of the scale, earlier this year the company experimented with a much pricier sandwich option - the six-foot-long (and aptly-named) 'Giant Sub'.
According to Subway, the BMT version that was made in training included: "680g of lettuce, 96 slices of tomato, 96 slices of cucumber, 96 slices of pickle, 96 slices of olive, 227g of onion, 96 slices of green pepper, 64 slices of ham, 96 slices of pepperoni, 96 slices of salami and 64 triangles of American-style cheese."
Mmmm, 64 slices of American cheese. Someone in their food lab is definitely a Simpsons fan.
The epic creation was supposed to be split between a group of up to 25 people (although frankly some people may view that as a challenge - hey, they're your arteries) and was sold for the princely sum of £116, although it was only available for a limited time so in all likelihood you'll need to get a YouGov petition up and running if you want to get your hands on one.
Either way, it's unlikely to appear on the money-saver menu any time soon. Come on Subway, give the people what they want.
