Subway's chicken sandwich is a white sponge on a bun

Which came first the chicken or the egg? If you believe the Judeo-Christian story of creation found in the book of Genesis the answer is simple: the chicken. God spoke, and bam! Plump juicy chicken. He then observed His creation and said that it was "good." I however have not been so fortunate.

Not long ago, here in San Diego, I ordered the Oven Roasted Chicken sandwich from fast-food giant Subway, and saw that it was not good, because what they called chicken looked more like a white sponge on a bun. I was shocked, realizing that this was not what God intended chicken to be.

I was scared - seriously debating whether I should eat my $5 Foot-long special or not. "Maybe I should have bought a more expensive sandwich?" I pondered worriedly. With fear and trepedation I tried not to think too much about it, yet I cringed while proceeding with my lunch, telling myself: "I hope I'll be alright. I hope I don't get sick or regret this. No one should have to eat chicken like this, if in fact it is chicken." ...

Chickens don’t have “nuggets.”

What does this pansy expect? Subway sucks.

There’s no reason to eat at a national chain unless you’re stuck in a truckstop or airport.

Subway’s chicken is a terrible item.

However, their breakfasts are wonderful!

I tried a Subway breakfast muffin. The egg looked like a mouse pad, and was just as tasty.

Well, not after they've been neutered.

white sponge

The "Public Health" majors must be doing more studies on how minorities are exploited by Big Food.

It is no great surprise here - many places use “pressed and formed” chicken for nuggets and patties. They take all the bits and pieces and mechanically press them together to simulate a chicken breast. I’m sure there are all sorts of chemicals and fillers added.

Heh. I have one of these chicken-breast sandwiches waiting to be eaten for lunch right now. This sandwich is item on the menu that’s lowest in sodium - provided you want meat, of course, and not just veggies.

Didn’t most of us already know this about factory-chicken production before this article? Why did the Examiner post this under “Christianity” - because “Only God can make a chicken”?

Or a military base. Back in the day, I would thank the heavens for Burger King, because the chow hall was something just short of criminal.

...And yet, I'm sure that they sell tons of it, or they would soon be out of business.
Just goes to show: there's no accounting for different folks' taste. Witness, the election of BO.

Good call...

The closest I’ve come to that is the Area 12 cafeteria at the Nevada Test Site.... 50 miles from the next source of “food” in Mercury.

I think they got the cooks from the DMV.
