It's a plan to try to get Subway to add vegan options. Like veggie "meats" and son.

I think it's a great idea. But, I don't know. Could saying you love them—instead of calling them names—actually work?

We Love Subway

I eat Subway more than I care to. The veggie delight (everything please with jalepenos and yellow mustard) is my standard. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I don't think I would order the fake meats even if they added it to the menu. Something about their veggies is too overwhelming. I wouldn't even taste anything else.

I can't eat at sandwich bars since seeing a member of staff handling meat with their gloves on then rummaging through the rolls with the same gloves on.

Beaver anal glands are one thing I legitimately never thought I would need to be concerned about.

oh man, vegan meats at Subway would be awesome! Sometimes when all the stars align I will grab a veggie sub there and then stop at the supermarket and pick up a pack of Yves deli slices to put on top...it's strangely delicious

It's also good when you take a sub home and put a lot of Veganaise on it.

I get absurdly delighted when I find a Subway that has spinach and not just the crappy iceburg lettuce.

I walk by a Subway every day and somehow in the year I've lived a block and a half away from it, I've never stepped foot inside. Their $3 sub sign outside is always tempting, though.

No idea if that approach would work but I can't see why they couldn't start stocking as an option. It'd make life easier at times knowing there was a chain with an option, especially where I live given there is basically 1 place that does vegan options and they are very unreliable.

Me too! Rumor has it that some Subways have avocados, but I've never been able to confirm that.

Whoa! Just today I was eating a slice of Tofurkey and thinking "Man, I wish there was a sub place with a fakey meat options."

If Chipotle and Zpizza did it then maybe, just maybe, Subway will too.

Now I'm all excited. As if it's already happened. Or will happen. I want it to happen!

Mine has mashed avocado that they sort of spread on.

I keep tofurkey slices and wildwood garlic aioli at work to add to subway.

Yup, they've got avocado slices here. It costs extra, I think 75 cents. Too bad you can't sub it for cheese.

I wish Subway would offer hummus as an option. I'd rather have that (and avocado!) instead of fake meaty things. I try to keep a container of hummus on hand at work, so when I get a veggie sandwich from Subway for lunch I have something a little more substantial than salad on bread.

Yeah, I wouldn't be excited about veggie meats but I'd love me some hummus. The sandwich place at my work has hummus and avocado as an option. I go there sometimes.

I often wish that Subway would have hummus. I would be all excited about fake meats, and would order it, but I think hummus would be a better idea for them to get because it's not as... vegan. As in, non-vegans are more likely to eat hummus as they are to eat fake meats.

I hate to admit that sometimes I totally crave Subway (rarely, but it does happen) and load it with tons of olives (which some lady at this one in an uppity part of Brooklyn actually gave me shiitake about getting extra olives. bisque it's called a veggie delight, give me my forking olives), and tons of sweet peppers and loads and loads of their vinegar. And if I'm really bad.....spicy sweet chili doritos aka crack on a toritilla chip (and about as good for you as crack). And WHY, when you ask right off the bat for a veggie delight do they ask you what kind of meat you want?

That's a good point. I can't imagine it being hard or harder than other items to source and stock so really, why not?

Yeah in Aussie too but it's a bit extra. The standard here is iceberg, carrot, red onion, green pepper, cucumber, jalapenos, pickles, olives...maybe some other things, I can't remember. Isn't the veggie patty vegan? I haven't tried it cos I just stick to my salad with sweet onion.

Who took the time to figure out that beaver anal glands have uses beyond being an integral part of a beaver's asparagus? That's some forked up shiitake.
