Before I get into the latest addition to the Subway lineup, I wanted to tell a little story about our local Subway restaurant. My daughter is a competitive gymnast. Yes, it’s a humblebrag, deal with it, and with the number of hours she trains, finding time to prepare meals can often be a chore.
We started going to Subway for dinner every Wednesday before training, a day we cleverly dubbed ‘Subway Wednesday’, because it was a good way for her to get protein, veggies and a milk in before her 4-hour training session. After about 6 or 7 Wednesdays of ordering the same meals, because my kids are petrified of trying new things, we walked in one day and before uttering a word, the employee rhymed off our entire order.
I was equal parts impressed and sad that we were so predictable. Considering how many people are served in a Subway restaurant on a daily basis, I landed on extremely impressed, and my kids were so excited that they literally cannot wait to go back in every Wednesday to see if they remember their order again. They felt like celebrities and who could blame them?
Okay, back to the task at hand. Obviously, when Subway reached out to see if I want to partner with them the answer was an emphatic yes! They are celebrating the launch of paninis in their restaurants and asked me to test them out for you, a task I didn’t take lightly! While I may not be a wizard on the camera, as you can see below, I am a champion eater and tried each and every one of the new Subway paninis for you!
There are 4 amazing paninis to choose from, which include Chipotle Steak & Cheese, Triple Cheese, Chicken Cordon Bleu and the Italian B.M.T. Melt. After trying them all, and being a meat guy, I tend to gravitate to the Italian B.M.T. Melt but all the paninis were excellent in their own way.
While my kids enjoyed the Italian B.M.T. Melt their dad let them try, they were split on their favourite panini, as my son loved the Chipotle Steak & Cheese, while my daughter was all about that Triple Cheese life! Side note, I’ve been blogging a long time now and it is still a hilarious adventure anytime I try to get pictures of the kids for a blog post. In the end, we always get the shot though!
You can also keep your eyes peeled for the Subway Panini Express which will be visiting a city near you to hand out free paninis to passersby! You can track the Panini Express on social media by searching the hashtag #PaniniExpress and following their progress!
So, what are you waiting for? Head over to your local Subway restaurant today, try the all-new paninis and then come back and let me know your thoughts! You never know when I might get the itch to give away a few Subway gift cards to my loyal readers!
