    That explains the taste.
  4. I bet their bread still has carbon in it, you know they find that stuff in oil! :p

    I'm not familiar with this particular compound, I'm just enjoying a laugh at the scare tactic type titles, all sorts of things which we eat can have different purposes.

    ...maybe they should add this to their cheese.
    Honestly, their cheese (America, Jack, Provolone) has zero taste.

    Since that chemical is used in yoga mats and the soles of sneakers, if they take it out, you won't have a spring in your step after eating one of their sub sandwiches anymore. :rolleyes:
  7. Regardless of what you have, Subway sandwiches almost always taste the same, it's very bizarre!

    Would that explain why I get diarrhea every time I eat there?
  11. After hearing about it a few weeks ago, my son found two or three things in our kitchen with it in them. Why can't companies continue to make food without drywall and other stuff in it that we shouldn't be eating for the sake of MORE profit? It's no different than that taco place in Omaha that they found empty dog food cans in the dumpster when I was a youth. Even then, it only hurt their business for a short time; before long, their core customers were back begging for more. :p

    Damn, you're correct.

    ...and the ones we have in the Gym smell like beaver.

    Weird synthetics are in everything we eat. It's the nature of providing cheap food to an overpopulated world. If people wanna avoid it, they can grow their own plants and animals to eat.

    I love subway.

    Subway has gone down hill around here lately IMO. And it isn't just the chemicals in the bread. They let the stuff sit out all day, never use enough ingredients (meat, cheese, etc.) and the service is always crap.

    I much prefer Jimmy Johns or any of the local family owned sandwich shops. It costs a little more, but it's way better food and service.

    I used to eat Subway all the time, though... It must be a different restaurant at night when I'm at work or something.

    A few people have mentioned the smell of subway. I don't know how it is everywhere else but here in Alabama, Walmart super centers used to contract with McDonald's and had them in the front of every store. Sometime in the past year they all changed to subway and you can smell it throughout the ENTIRE store.

    Can anybody think of a valid reason any stuff like that is in food?

    Not just picking on subway....weird stuff is in just about everything.
