    I thought this was going to be about something else.

    I never noticed anything like that in subway. On holiday travels I've got an 8 hour drive and I stop for lunch. I avoid the fast food burger places because the food is terrible. Subway at least has veggies and I basically get a salad on a sandwich. I do agree, they need to go back to the old bread recipe.

    reminds me of a specific smell on the male body when you don't shower enough. i think what blew my mind is when they said they smell it up to attract customers.

    I don't know how anyone can eat at Subway. That "bread" smell is nauseating. It smells nothing like real fresh baked bread. Just walking past as someone is opening the door is bad enough... it is definitely a STENCH.

    I haven't had a Bahn Mi since I worked in an office above a fruit shop (now there's a smell for you) back in the late 80's. I do remember they were delicious There's a place here in town that does a pretty good Gua Bao.

    Feel better knowing this. On days when I don't get it together to make lunch, and don't have time for "Duck a-la-orange, under glass" at a fancy restaurant, Subway ok for me, in Oz.

    The thing that must not be named has made everyone extremely grouchy about everything. Subway is okay. I like a few other places better. I don’t notice a smell.

    BEFORE, most of the time on the way home from playing golf, my wife and I used to stop off and get a sandwich to go. I never noticed any smell either.

    Years ago I read that Subway's peculiar odor (which is particularly noticeable in enclosed places like shopping malls) is actually the smell of the bread dough rising and releasing certain gases. So I guess it's a signal that the bread is freshly baked.

    Trying to get my head around what purpose soy serves in the production of bread...

    Bread is so delightfully simple. And I know it has to be shelf-stable for storage, etc, but some of the loaves you can buy have hundreds of ingredients.

    Hundreds!


    I recall reading recently that Subway bread cannot legally be called bread because it contains more than 10% sugar or something. So it's more like a cake, I guess?
