Fast Food Review: New! Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie from Subway

Valentine’s Day is coming up, and you know what that means. Just another excuse to bury your dating frustrations beneath the sugary confection of something horrible for you.Chances are, it’ll be something chocolate. A whole quart of premium ice cream, perhaps? Or maybe something you let the attractive salesperson from Godiva bait you into buying. Really, like you didn’t see that one coming? Just don’t come crying to me after you’ve sobbed and wailed and downed a whole 65 buck designer box of “artisan” chocolates, only to realize that they didn’t even hold you through the first half of whatever teenage angsty love-comedy that was playing on Hallmark channel was.

Of course, if you’re a money strapped college student like me, you tend to take out dating furstations (which may or may not exist) on something a bit less, uh, exclusive. Thanks to Subway’s Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie, this is not only economically feasible, but damn tasty.

I don’t know why they don’t have this as a full time item. Oh, I know. Maybe it’s because cookies are the biggest afterthought in fast food. I mean, people usually think of soup and pretzels and kiddie cones before they think of those cookies conveniently at the register of every major chain. Chocolate Chip? Who needs ‘em. Oatmeal Raisin? Been there, done that. But at .50 cents each for a Subway cookie (compared to more than a buck for yogurt or apple “slices”) should you really just pass the cookie by without second thoughts?

Not if your Subway has the seasonally themed and limited time only Raspberry Cheesecake Cookie, which aside from being cheap and delicious, also boasts the most insane marketing effort ever given to a half dollar cent fast food menu item:

Imagine a freshly baked cookie with the luxuriously rich taste of cheesecake and tangy, ripe raspberries dancing a waltz of flavor on your taste buds. Okay, now stop imagining, because this delicious dessert is the real deal, and it’s as divinely delectable as you thought. Try one today – this tasty treat won’t last forever.

Actually, it can last forever if you freeze it in a cryogenic chamber, but not even I’m that desperate to preserve a love this vain. As for that cookie, well yes, it is a bit hard and crunchy on the edges. That’s what happens to a cookie sitting in one of those “things” they make cookies sit in. But even during the lunchtime rush my cookie was still chewy and moist towards the interior, and once more had a dare-I-say explosive sweetness that really did taste like a raspberry cheesecake. The raspberry pieces are dried but sweet and fruity, but it’s the cheesecake bits, surrounded by a rich cookie dough, which make this cookie so freaking awesome. At first I thought they were white chocolate chips, but they’re more like individual pieces of hardened cream cheese with a ton of sugar dumped over them. In other words, they are perhaps as close to the platonic conception of awesomeness that you can have, and at the risk of going all guido on you, they would seriously be good if eaten off your shoe.

Don’t take my word for it though. If you’re dateless this Valentines Day, go ahead and treat yourself to a sweat treat like this. Heck, even if you’ve got a date, blow off the fancy, expensive chocolates and get a couple of these. Tell her they’re from that French bakery that uses only organic butter and charges three bucks for a “artisan” cookie. Seriously, she’ll never know the difference.

Pros: Cheap and delicious. Delicious cheesecake chunks. Slightly crunchy edges yield to moist interior. Who doesn't love the taste of cookie dough?

Cons: Limited Time only. Spelling "Raspberry" (seriously, where did that "p" come from). Getting fat while not having a date for Valentine's Day.

    Yum! Sounds tasty! I’m definitely trying this tomorrow!

  2. Shannon says:

    I’m intrigued

  3. Dan N says:

    These cookies sound really good and I love cheesecake. Are they the same size as the normal cookies? If so only 190 calories seems a little hookie.

  4. J.B. says:

    Looks good, I will definitely try them this week.

  5. Jackie L. says:

    I may or may not have cleaned out the local Subway’s raspberry cheesecake cookie rack during my lunch break. I also may or may not have enjoyed four on the six minute ride back to work.

  6. Manavee says:

    Although reasonably priced, the sandwiches at Subway are boring and bland, IMO. I’ll pay the extra for Quizno’s any day.

    That being said, I did try this cookie today and I agree, it was really excellent. A ton of personality, very bright flavors…one of the better cookies I have had at a fast food style place ever, I would say. And a great deal at 50 cents.

  7. J.B. says:

    Went to go get it today and they were out of them.
    So mad.
    I will try again tomorrow.

  8. Kat says:

    Sorry, but nothing tops Subway’s white chocolate macadamia nut cookies :)

    • Ty says:

      ONly the oatmeal…THey are the soft chewiest most delightful bit of goodness

    • Phil says:

      Agreed. This cookie seems to have tainted the Whitc Chip Macadmias I had today, too. There was a slight hint of raspberry that isn’t usually there.

  9. Ty says:

    On Valentines day you get one free cookie with any purchase

  10. Zachary Jacob Zblewski says:

    After seeing this cookie, I demand Mars begins production on Cheesecake M&M’s!

  11. Lillaura says:

    Those cookies are the bomb. They are fantastic. WOW!!!!!!!!

  12. Patrick says:

    Went to Subway today with my mom and got my usual Buffalo Chicken toasted sub with provolone and lettuce, and got some of these cookies. Wow, were they delicious! Nice and soft, kind of gooey in the middle, and no weird seeds in the raspberry bits, plus I’m a huge sucker for white chocolate (or things that taste like it), I give them a huge thumbs up!

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks for to thumbs up. I am employed at Subway. Thank you for the compliment. Jessica

  13. Eric says:

    Just curious, do you dislike the word raspberry itself or did you think it a misspelling? I guess you are left with no real cons if you don’t pick on the word.

    • Adam says:

      I like phonetic words. Where the heck do you hear a “p” in there haha?

      • Jenn says:

        Maybe originally the “p” sound was more obvious, but as with many other words we’ve just gotten lazy in our speech. Besides, the proximity of the “b” and “p” next to each other makes it difficult to tell if there is an actual “p” sound when spoken quickly. Also, if you want to get really technical, depending on how you pronounce the word, would you prefer a “z” over the “s”? :P

  14. I (like Jackie L. above) have cleaned out the racks at three different Subway shops near home and work since I first ate one of these cookies about a week-and-a-half ago.

    I eat and like _all_ of Subway’s baked cookies (including the chocolate chip, the white macadamia nut, and the oatmeal raisin).

    But this raspberry cheesecake cookie is better than all of them.

    I called a fourth Subway in my area this morning and asked them to bake and hold a dozen for me when I come in for lunch today.

  15. Zombie Cookie says:

    I too cleaned out my subway today. OMG they are AMAZING!! The lady thought I was nuts when I looked at her and said give me all your cookies! :o) I shared them with my wife and daughter. My daughter loves them.

  16. Sorry, Ryan I respectfully disagree with you on this review.

  17. Alyssa says:

    I bought 3 for $1.39 and pretty much inhaled them instantaneously. My daughter on the other hand insisted on having an M&M cookie from one of those cookie chains in the mall. I paid $1.69 for just 1 of hers and it was stale and she did not finish it. I am now on the hunt for a suitable copy-cat recipe. LOVE these cookies!!!

  18. jim chocolate chip says:

    Listen….these cookies are delicious…but after about 12 I was sick of them.

    Not for good, just needed a break.

    I ordered a chocolate chip and an oatmean taisin with my meal today and guess what…..

    They both tasted like Raspberry cheesecake…this cookie is so powerful they have impeded on two classic cookies tastes….

    …they must….be….stopped…

  19. pk says:

    i want the recipe…

  20. SpunkyMomma31 says:

    Ok, so I eat at subway at least once a week and so does my family. There is a total of 3 of us and my 6month old. So, that’s 3 cookies each, totaling 9 cookies at least per week, and I truely mean “the least” amount I buy in a week! That’s just how good they are!!!!

  21. LeoTomas says:

    Your a fool for writing so much about this Damn Cookie…… but your right. My Coworker has been craving this cookie for months. She actually got pregnant after receiving this cookie as a gift.

  23. wrongway says:

    Through some faulty reasoning, I was thinking these would be slightly tart so I was a little let down. I wish someone would make a cookie that actually is a bit tart or just a little less sweet.
