Review: Subway - Cold Cut Combo

 Subway's Cold Cut Combo has always been the value sandwich at Subway for as long as I can remember, even before $5 Footlongs. It comes with a combination of three deli meats: ham, salami, and bologna plus your choice of cheese, veggies, condiments, and bread.

It's been available throughout December at $2 for a 6-inch but is normally $5 for a 12-inch sub.

They used to actually serve these at my high school during my senior year for $2 or $3 at lunch time along with Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas. A concession to students after they closed the campus for lunch.

It might say ham, salami, and bologna but it tastes mostly like baloney... er bologna (does anyone not trying to sell it call it "bologna?"). Now I don't mind the taste of baloney but I associate it with cheap eating which is appropriate since the Cold Cut Combo is very much cheap eats; it doesn't feel very special but it does the job. I wouldn't have minded a little more meat but $2 only gets you so much.
As always, the veggies were fresh, the cheese ordinary, and the bread fairly soft with very little in the way of crispness (it doesn't make a mess but it's not very satisfying).

Overall, the Cold Cut Combo is decent. Like I said, it gets the job done. The job being filling the belly. I've had worse subs at Subway but I've also had better. Still, baloney's not a bad way to go.

  1. I tried the Cold Cut Combo sandwich once, hoping I would get something a bit like a low-end club. Unfortunately, it tastes like bologna. Turkey bologna, no less!

  2. I am curious as to the meat amounts placed upon the Subway fare in general in past renditions compared to what is given today.

    based upon memory alone it seems to me the amount of meats if whatever type used (depending upon sandwich-type) has been reduced from past offerings.

    it would make sense.

    Observe the ever-smaller cans of soup upon grocery store shelves along with ice cream, etc.

    Inflation and/or deflation whether quantity or price is affected.

    And life goes on.

    And hunger remains.

    And the fast-food "wars" continue.

    Us oldsters can recall the pre-budget menu days at fast-food joints.

  3. I usually go with the veggie patty, it's my favorite. I do enjoy the CCC, though.

  4. As long as the meat is meat-based, $2 is a great deal!
