What Happened To My Sandwich?

Subway Sub

Five dollar footlong has SUCH a better ring than $4.58 11-incher, doesn’t it? But looking at my Facebook wall over the past week, it seems like I’m not the only person that has noticed a difference from what you see on the menu board as to what you get when you take your sack from the counter.

I don’t think it’s restaurants trying to dupe the public. They have to realize we’re fairly intelligent and with the world of social media that we live in, word is going to get around when you make a change like the one in the picture above.

But this has been going on for years. I worked (and managed) for a national fast food chain when I was in high school in Minneapolis. I saw some of the photo sessions for new menu items and I KNOW we weren’t using styrofoam buns and glue on the burgers we were serving, but was told at 16-years old that ‘doctored’ pictures like that were just more appetizing than the real thing!

Wait. You mean that burrito that looks bigger than my head on the board (because it’s been photo-shopped to look that big) is really smaller than the palm of my hand? You mean there really ISN’T two cups of real cheese on my nachos, but a quarter cup of processed cheese? And when did they stop putting two slices of cheese on a double cheeseburger???

But we will happily gobble up whatever they serve us, because billion dollar industries have got our number…and our french fries, nachos, shakes, and 5 1/2 inch subs!

By the way, if you whip out a tape measure while you’re still in the store, expect a funny look like we got.
