News: Subway to Offer Garlic Bread Sandwich Option Starting September

Starting this Sunday, September 1, Subway will be offering new garlic bread as a limited-time option with their sandwiches. That's right. Starting September 1, you'll be able to get a Meatball Marinara on garlic bread... now if only they offered spaghetti noodles, your Italian meal would be complete.

The new bread will be joining a line up that includes 9-Grain Honey Oat, 9-Grain Honey Wheat, Italian, and Italian Herbs & Cheese (plus Flatbread, Hearty Italian, Monterey Cheddar, and Parmesan Organo in some Subway stores).

It's unclear whether the new garlic bread is the "Roasted Garlic" bread offered at some Subway stores (which looks like the picture above and is essentially Subway's Italian bread with roasted garlic topping) or the garlic bread option tested as far back as 2006, where a buttery garlic spread was squeezed out of a tube onto regular Subway bread prior to toasting, or something else entirely.

As with most limited time items, if the bread does well enough, it's likely to end as a permanent option. According to USA Today, Subway plans to regularly introduce limited-time bread offers to see what sticks.

  1. It's not Roasted Garlic it's Garlic Butter bread

  2. I haven't been to Subway in ages (they raised the prices of all their sandwiches and it's just not worth it anymore), but I'd go back to try meatball on garlic bread.

  3. They did this maybe... 7 or 8 years ago when I was living in the DC area. They stopped it after a few months, but man, the Meatball sub on garlic bread was without a doubt the best thing Ive ever eaten at Subway. I will definitely be having it again.

  4. It is not garlic butter bread.

    Interesting...I will have to watch my favorite Subway and try a meatball sub on this.

  6. To clarify, what I had in 2006 was the garlic spread, similar to how they do the avocado, spread onto the Italian Herb and Cheese bread with a knife. It was glorious.

  7. I'm hoping that's the way they're going here but we'll see come Sunday.

  8. I heard it's a let down on the flavor.
