    Don’t have have this already?

  2. BigBelly says:

    so the whole fiery loaf has what appears to be 2 rings of a jalapeno on it? :/

  3. Dillon says:

    Every Subway I’ve ever been to in the past few years already had this bread. Is it really new on the national market?

  4. alek says:

    How about “extra cheese” bread? I love the cheesy topping of the bread you know the golden brown part?

    • FA says:

      I know exactly what you mean. Solution: get an asiago bagel at Dunkin’ Donuts for that craving and avoid Subway’s middling meat quality.

    Aside from the folks who think a sandwich should be a big pile of meat on a bun, I’ve never understood the Subway haters. The breads are great, they pile on veggies including things like olives, spinach leaves, carrots aside from the usuals. Bunch of condiments including sauces, oil, parmesan, full fat or light mayo…
    If you are stuck with the usual fast food options because of where you’re at and no decent sub shops nearby they really don’t suck at all. $5 for a loaded footlong beats a $6 burger or chicken sandwich from Wendy’s or BK, especially when you can eat half now half later. (yes, this doesn’t apply to the just meat & cheese crowd)
    I’m happy with the new jalapeno cheese bread option, should be good with a steak sandwich.

      Always been the way I’ve felt too.. granted before I started looking at this site I’d only heard of Jimmy John’s, and never seen Jersey Mike’s, Firehouse, etc… just not in a part of the country where they have those chains. Now people do prefer other sub shops out here.. Togo’s and Port of Subs come to mind.. but the general complaint with Subway is that it’s just a little too plain.. not that it’s total garbage as so many here seem to feel.

    • raiders757 says:

      I can’t say I hate Subway. I just stopped patronizing them due to far better options. Yes, they are skimpy on the meat which is bad, but even worse they are being skimpy with extremely cheap meat. Turkey ham, turkey bologna. etc etc.. Not only that, they ask far too much for their subs that aren’t on sale. For the same price I can go to a local deli and get the real deal. If I’m stuck with a chain sandwich shop, there are just way too many alternatives to even bother with Subway. Heck, Wawa makes a better sub and they’re a friggin’ gas station.

      People hate on it because the quality is garbage. Look at the “meat” and veggies. Disgusting. You can go to just about any sub shop and get way better quality for the same price or slightly more. And you can be pretty sure that the meat is actually meat elsewhere. I know a lot of people do like Subway, obviously, and each to his/her own. I think trying to make the case that Subway is high quality is ridiculous.

      • TJ says:

        Unless the quality control is just terrible in other parts of the country, some of subway’s meat is indeed meat.. I don’t think he said it was high quality, but it’s a valid point, when your options are places like McDonald’s or Subway is it really that poor a choice to choose Subway some of the time? The main complaint amongst my friends is that Subway is too plain, but the way people on here talk it’s more like radioactive waste (and it’s not).

        • Bubbsy says:

          I don’t think reading comprehension is really a priority in HotToddy’s life.
          But although the lunchmeat is uninspired, I do wonder where someone is going when they say the veggies are trash, …. I mean sure if you’re some kind of hyper-vegan purist you might demand produce that is hand fertilized with only the steamiest and creamiest of organic grass-fed cow manure, … but I’ve never encountered brown lettuce, limp peppers, or spoiled tomatoes, or anything like that.

    I’ve been getting my turkey sandwiches on jalapeno cheddar bread for years here in southern California. I didn’t even know it wasn’t available everywhere. My only hope is they’ll improve the “recipe” and put fresh jalapenos on it instead of those canned marinated things.

  7. Tom says:

    This might actually get me to go to Subway.

    • FA says:

      The whole fiery food craze has really taken off. They know that it will get more people through the door, so it should be a win win.

  8. Icedus says:

    I hope they keep bumping up these biannual discount months–I’m curious what horrible wordplay they’ll force on August.

  9. John Michasels says:

    I have no idea why some people still go to Subway. I get its somewhat cheap (not really if its not on special) but the meats are so low quality. I can’t believe people would go there instead of Jersey Mikes, Pot Belly, FireHouse, Which Witch, etc. I hate to say it but I look down on people who eat at Subway. Its like they don’t care about their bodies and their families bodies to eat that processed stuff.

    • Manavee says:

      Suggestion for Ryan: Copy the above post and put it as the first comment on every single Subway post that you make. It will save countless time for many of your commenters.

      Once the first outraged reply to the above post is made, you can copy that one too.

    • Joe Cool says:

      Congratulations on the most pretentious post I’ve seen in a long time…you look down on people that go to Subway? Wow. Just wow. There are lots of reasons people go to Subway. A lot of people actually don’t have those other options near them. So maybe its convenience, maybe some like it more…really who cares why people go.

      • TJ says:

        I was about to write almost the exact same thing.. this guy’s comment is one of the snottiest I’ve seen on here, and that says a lot. Subway’s meats aren’t contaminated garbage, feel sorry for people who are legitimately hungry, their meat is average at worst.. I’m not talking about the cold cut combo, okay the cheap meats are what they are, but the regular turkey and ham is pretty normal. I’ve never seen any of the places you’ve mentioned on the west coast, I’ve heard of them and I have other alternatives, but it’s about a 5 to 1 ratio in favor of Subway. I’m sorry if I want a cheap, quick light lunch once a week. I feel sorry for your general ignorance.

      • BigBelly says:

        well, if it isn’t joe cool, Grub Grades post critique expert with another personal attack on someones opinion. It’s to bad that the only option you have/desire is a mechanically separated turkey anus subway sandwich, doesn’t mean he has to like it…

      Three Words: Customer Appreciation Month.
      At regular prices I wouldn’t bother. But they run so many specials that I am invariably lured in, even in non CAMs.

    • ahecht says:

      Because the only places to get a sandwich within 10 minutes of my work are Subway and Dunkin Donuts? Because I don’t have time to drive 20 minutes each way to Firehouse? Because it’s better for you than Burger King or McDonalds? Because “processed” doesn’t necessarily mean “bad for you”?

  10. ahecht says:

    They got rid of the garlic bread for this?

  11. FA says:

    Gotta love the sales. $2 for a cold cut combo or meatball this month is an awesome price point I’ve taken advantage of. The grilled chicken is a nice sandwich too, especially when they put it at $5. Basically I stick to their sales subs. Love cheddar, hate jalapeno. So I’ll likely get this bread for the former and pick off as much of the latter as possible!

  12. Jonathon P says:

    I worked at Subway in High School from 2006-2007 and this bread was a staple on the menu. How is this new????

  13. Phaet says:

    Subway steak is a bit more tasty to me than Taco Bell’s (Which, to to my knowledge, TB is in the process of reformulating the recipe for their steak yet again), but I’d pay $6 for a footlong cheesesteak, not $10. I was also fond of their chicken until they switched from breast to MSC and then attempt to shape it into those round-edge rectangles.

  14. Allen says:

    Apparently I live in the only area where we don’t already have this. Looks good
