Review: Subway - Auntie Anne's Footlong Pretzel

Subway's Footlong Pretzel next to a quarter and honey mustard dipping cup.

Subway's Auntie Anne's Footlong Pretzel features a warm, roughly 12-inch Auntie Anne's soft pretzel that comes topped with butter and pretzel salt.

I paid $3 for one and the price included a cup of honey mustard for dipping.

I was actually aiming to get a Footlong Cookie but I was told by the Subway employee that they were sold out in the area due to the internet popularity of the cookie. I asked if they sold a lot at this particular location and he said they hadn't but that other stores in the area had drawn up a lot of the stock.

The Footlong Pretzel was prepped by a quick heat/toast in a turbo convection oven (it uses a combination of radiant heat, microwaves, and high-speed convection). After a turn in the oven, the pretzel was brushed with butter, sprinkled with pretzel salt, and given a quick roll on a sheet of waxed paper to spread the butter and salt.

While it looked pretty nice with a long, segmented shape and an even brown color, biting into the pretzel yield zero pretzel flavor. It just tasted like plain bread with some buttery notes from the crust. While the crumb was warm, it was also somewhat hard for a soft pretzel and overly chewy.

The honey mustard was nice enough with a moderate sweetness and light mustard notes but without the pretzel flavor, all I tasted was honey mustard when eating it with the Footlong Pretzel.

Overall, Auntie Anne's Footlong Pretzel was a bit of a disappointment to me as it turned out to be a fairly tasteless, hard, and chewy roll of slightly buttery bread. It didn't taste like a pretzel and now I kind of want a proper Auntie Anne's pretzel.
