I'm opposed to experimenting on Canadians.

About time! I hope they bring it to the UK (if it tastes okay).

It's not bad, either! I've had once twice. It cost extra, if I remember, and it's pretty huge, too. The only thing I don't like is that they microwave it, which makes it a bit flabby and limp, but still, taste-wise I like it!

Seems more than experiment in BC, it's been available at every location I've gone to. Not bad at all and when you're in a rush it sure beats french fries.

I had one, and it was gross. I didn't even eat the whole thing. Pretty disappointing.

Meh, it's not that bad. It's as bad as you expect stuff to be at Subway (which is marginally above bad). I have low expectations when it comes to getting a Subway sammich on a road trip, and I think the patty tastes just like all those other crappy but necessary frozen veggie patties. I say it's a good thing.

I tweeted about it and this one mean vegan got on my asparagus about the evils of Subway. Dude, I know. I'm just trying to eat in small towns and airports. Sorry if I crave more than Vega.

Wait, it tastes shiitake, but in a way that's worse than what you guys may have thought the original (vegetarian) veggie patty tasted like (if you've ever had it)? Cause I quite liked the veggie patties before, but obviously just started eating the regular veggie subs after going vegan; thus personally I would be pretty happy with the vegan patty if it tastes the same.

It isn't terrible but it's lame enough that I'd rather just have a plain veggie sub than pay extra for a bland patty. It is nice that they have it as an option by I would be far more thrilled with vegan mayo or cheese.

I wonder what the protein content is, 'cause more than taste that's what I'm looking for in a quick lunch in a vegan-unfriendly world.

For example, last summer a group of us stopped in Pincher Creek for lunch and we can all agree on Subway for a quick road trip lunch, but personally I need more than veggies and bread for a meal and this sounds like a good thing.

subway is stupid for not making their original veggie patty a vegan one. If theyd only have hummus or falafel theyd probably get more hippy business. But theyre dumb...and lets be honest, subway sorta sucks

I wish all subways had avocado like in California. That would be awesome.

Yeah, seriously. A twelve inch veggie sub with everything on it, and I'm hungry again an hour or later. If the patty does nothing but add a little more substance, it'll be an improvement. If I go to Subway, it's usually because I'm faint with hunger and far from my own kitchen, not because I'm expecting a gourmet spread...

I had an avocado one in Seattle! It's getting clooosseer! Heh! Man, between having exhausted my probably ONLY ever avocado Subway experience, and then having already tried, and liked the vegan patty, I am feeling like I eat too much Subway! I'm spoiled.

No kidding!

You guys are crazy for expecting something great-tasting from a fast-food outlet.

ps...I had avocado on a Subway veggie delight in Hiroshima.

My vote is for hummus and avocado! The pictures of the patty on the ads here looks positively awful...haven't tried it yet so I can't comment on the taste.
