Review: Quiznos - Turkey and Spicy Brown Mustard on Pretzel Bread

Quiznos' Turkey and Spicy Brown Mustard on Pretzel Bread features turkey, Swiss cheese, spicy brown mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions all on their new pretzel bun.

I picked up a regular size (8") for $5.99.

Quiznos is a little late to the pretzel bun party but I decided I wouldn't mind trying one more rendition of the suddenly popular bread. Unfortunately, this bun was one of the blandest of any pretzel bun I've had. I felt like I was eating a regular, albeit denser, sub roll.

The ingredients on the bun were a different story. I thought the turkey had a good smoky flavor and was incredibly moist. I only wished my sandwich was assembled a bit better so it wasn't spilling out of the sides. The spicy brown mustard was tangy and maintained a very strong presence in the sandwich. I appreciated the lighter flavor of the mayo to help balance it out but it was still the star of the sandwich.

The tomato and lettuce tasted fresh enough but for some reason, onions were a no-show. They were on the sandwich but didn't bring any flavor. The Swiss cheese was also hard to find. In some of the more turkey-filled bites, I could taste the cheese melted onto the meat but it was generally lost in the sandwich under the spicy brown mustard.

Overall, I was unimpressed by Quiznos' turkey version of the pretzel sub. I would have liked more from the bread and less from the spicy brown mustard. The mustard tasted okay, but it was just too overpowering. The turkey itself was great and I’d have no problem ordering it on another sandwich from there in the future.
