What You Need to Know:
This sub comes it at a staggering price range, with a 6 inch almost costing $5 and the Footlong coming in at a mammoth $9.52 at my store. These sky high prices may be enough for most of Subway’s typical customers to turn a blind eye, but you’ve gotta try them to see if they’re even worth the premium.
Also of note, the 6 inch sub is noted to have 570 calories and 26 grams of fat. This seems crazy high, but this for once is an actual nutritional figure from Subway because it includes the cheese and mayo, which are typically left out. There are plenty of ways to lighten this load, for instance going with light mayo or brown mustard and sans the cheese, but we took this one for a spin with the advertised route.
No matter what you do with a Subway sandwich, you can’t make it look too gourmet. Maybe it’s the shards of iceberg lettuce that are piled onto the sandwiches with a misguided eye, or the simple fact that the bread sleeve covers almost everything up so the sandwich looks hollow when closed. Either way if you open up the bun, we can get glimpses of the thick turkey and the sauntering slices of bacon we came for.
Subway Carved Turkey & Bacon- The Verdict
I added some pickles and banana peppers to the mix to spice things up in case you didn’t notice and I’m glad I did. This sandwich is alarmingly bland, especially because the mayo adds little for taste. The turkey and bacon are present physically but the taste is really muted. If you’re going to pay a minimum wage hour’s worked for a sub, you’d sure hope it tasted like more than the paper it was wrapped in. We really liked the rotisserie chicken option due to the increased taste profile, but the carved turkey really didn’t have it.
