Food News: Italian B.M.T. is $5 Footlong of the Month at Subway

The calander has turned once again, and that means Subway is offering a new sandwich as part of their rotating $5 Footlong Menu. This month it’s the Italian B.M.T.

With 900 calories and 40 grams of fat (16 saturated, 1 trans) the footlong version of the Italian B.M.T. is one of Subway’s heavier offerings, but it’s also one of its most liked. Not a fan of the B.M.T? You might have to hold out for August’s featured $5 footlong: The Buffalo Chicken.

    I’ve got nothing against Subway (aside from their inconsistency as to which locations have spinach), but I’m not ready to come crawling back just yet. Those new Angus dealies at Arby’s have made me a quality-over-quantity man, at least for the moment.

    Yum! & Yippee [for the kid – her f@v!] Thks!

    To hell with Subway, if I walk into one and say “Give me an Italian B.M.T” they’re going to say “What do you want on it?”

    And I’ll say “Whatever comes on the Italian B.M.T”
    And they’ll say “That’s not how we do it”
    And I’ll walk out without a sandwich.

    Why even bother.

      Wow, asking what you want on it? What a drag…

      I can’t imagine the anguish you must have gone through on the day that Subway dared to customize your sandwich to your liking.

    • Francois says:

      No, they’ll just put the meats and cheeses on the sandwich and ask you what type of bread/cheese you want. Then you’ll do the tantrum thing and storm out of the building with your arms flailing wildly in the air.

      In defense of rob: I kind of get what he’s saying (although my response is usually the boring “lettuce, tomato, mayo” rather than storming out the door).

      Some places like Panera, Quiznos, and Cosi make a sandwich with complete pairings that they think will complement the meat/bread/etc. well. You can customize it by asking them to hold certain things, but at the end of the day they’ve created a whole sandwich from top to bottom for you to judge whether you like it or not. Subway just picks some random meats and then has you figure it out.

      I prefer the Panera/Quizno/Cosi model over that of Subway’s, but to each their own.

        If you’re someone who absolutely hates certain ingredients (or even worse, is allergic to them), the subway model is far better. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve specified “no tomato” at other places, and low and behold, I get tomato. It’s a refreshing change when I can actually see what they’re putting on my sandwich.

    Another crappy Subway failure of a sandwich.

    I was never a fan of Subway back in the day. They only had one type of bread and to me it smelled like chemicals so I couldn’t stomach any of their offerings.

    BUT, these days, for a quick sandwich I think they are a pretty decent option. They also have some decent coupons like buy a coke get a free 6″ sandwich before 10 am.

    Subway does have it’s flaws, such as skimping on the meat and far too few $5 foot long options, considering none of their subs are worth anything more than that. Still, it’s about time, for me at least. None of their “monthly specials” have even come close to appealing to my taste buds. I don’t go out of my way for Subway, but if I’m forced to have lunch at one this month, I’ll be getting this.

    Just wanted to mention if you look on subway’s website many of the subs list what comes on them (at least their suggestions) starting at the meat and going through the veggies. The problem is the people at subway are just too stupid, don’t want to be bothered, etc to remember or learn what comes on them. I love subway but this is very annoying when someone’s picking up a sub for me I have to write down every item I want.
