Subway’s Tuscan Collection featuring New Tuscan Chicken Florentine Melt

Spotted in Minnesota by GrubGrade reader Christopher, it’s another new Subway offering.  The Tuscan Collection features the Tuscan Chicken Melt which we reviewed back in 2009 and the newcomer is the Tuscan Chicken Florentine Melt which includes a spinach florentine spread.  Marvo from The Impulsive Buy reviewed the Chicken Florentine Flatbread in 2008 and that had a spinach artichoke spread so maybe the “Tuscan” spin is just marketing under a new name.  Let us know what you’re finding at your local Subway in the comments.

The Cookout Collection at Subway

There’s a lot of new promos going on at once at Subway, but they’re all regional.  There’s the Kung Pao Pulled Pork, The Mediterranean Collection and I just found out today about The Cookout Collection.  Big thanks to Eric from Junk Food Guy for tweeting me the info originally provided by @Everett_Duke.  The Cookout Collection was spotted in New Hampshire and it features a Veggie Patty sub, Chipotle Steak & Cheese, and the Angus Melt.  Subway doing Angus burgers was something that was originally in limited markets back in 2012.  We’ll keep you posted if this becomes a national release in the future.

Chick-fil-A’s New Grilled Chicken Recipe with Backyard Grilled Taste

It was officially announced today that on April 14th, Chick-fil-A will roll-out its new grilled chicken recipe nationwide with three featured entrees – the Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A Grilled Nuggets.  The new chicken marinade includes sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs.

Chickfila New Grilled Chicken

Chick-fil-A’s new recipe features an unmatched backyard grilled taste. Each grilled chicken breast is freshly marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, proprietary grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor. To make this menu enhancement possible, Chick-fil-A invested seven years of testing and more than $50 million to reinvent its grilled chicken recipe. The largest portion of the investment came as the company worked with Garland Grills to create a proprietary grill. This grill sears chicken perfectly on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster. 

Chicken Club Chickfila

  • Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich: The Grilled Chicken Sandwich is a boneless, 100 percent pure breast meat chicken, marinated with a special blend of seasonings and grilled for a tender and juicy backyard-grilled taste. It is served on a new toasted, multigrain bun with green leaf lettuce and tomato and served with a side of Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce. It is priced starting at $4.29 with 320 calories and 5 grams of fat.
  • Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich: The Club adds Colby-Jack Cheese and Applewood smoked bacon. It is priced starting at $5.49 and has 440 calories and 14 grams of fat.
  • Chick-fil-A Grilled Nuggets: Chick-fil-A Grilled Nuggets, which were first introduced in 2012 as a Kid’s Meal entrée, have been reinvented and offer the new grilled flavor in bite-sized pieces of pure boneless breast of chicken that are great as a meal or a snack. Customers can order Grilled Nuggets in 8-count (140 calories, 3 fat grams) or 12-count (200 calories, 4.5 fat grams) with their choice of dipping sauce. Grilled Nuggets are made without gluten-containing ingredients and are free of trans fats, with prices starting at $3.79 and $5.59, respectively.

I haven’t seen this as a national promotion just yet, but I’ve been seeing TV spots for Subway and their new Mediterranean Collection in the DC Metro area.  The picture was taken off my tv screen when I caught the commercial so forgive the quality.  The Mediterranean Collection is featured as chicken or steak flatbreads (or salad) with ingredients like feta cheese, black olives, cucumbers, and tzatziki sauce.  We’ll keep you posted on a possible wide release.
